YEREVAN, October 24 - Sputnik. Russia will send a note of protest to the failure of arms supply to Armenia. It is reported by RIA Novosti, citing the document available to the editorial office.

Armenia and Russia will develop cooperation in the field of biological security
The note is dated October 22, 2019 and is addressed to RA Minister of Defense David Tonoyan. The document says that the tender for the Russian company ORSIS was unjustly rejected. The note notes that the Armenian party included the company on a list of unscrupulous suppliers without any grounds. Russia asks Tonoyan to clarify the situation.

The agency notes that the note is currently in the Russian Foreign Ministry. It will soon reach Yerevan via diplomatic channels.

According to the agency, the matter concerns a multi-million dollar arms supply tender that was to take place this summer. The Armenian Ministry of Defense has rejected ORSIS's bid to refuse to pay the bank guarantee. A criminal case has been initiated (negligent treatment of the service), which is being investigated by the RA Investigation Committee.

ORSIS is part of the Prometecology group and specializes in the supply and sale of firearms, bullets and special optics.

Sputnik Armenia contacted Artsrun Hovhannisyan, spokesman for the Ministry of Defense. He noted that the MoD has no comment on the matter.
