The investigation of the criminal case investigated by the National Security Service had found out that several high-ranking officials of the Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defense of Armenia had abused their respective power in 2018 and unlawfully purchased a total of 4,232 obsolete weapons that were stored at the Ministry of Defense.

At the same time, the said weapons were purchased at a price almost twice as much as the previous purchase of ammunition of the same batch, thus committing embezzlement of 4,655,200 US dollars.

The aforementioned high-ranking former and current officials do not accept this charge and consider it a fake criminal case.
