9747.jpegA trial has started in Tbilisi over the citizens of Armenia accused of uranium trafficking, Kavkazsky Uzel reports.


The trial goes on privately. It is a 63-year-old businessman Sumbat Tonoyan and a 59-year-old physicist Grant Okhanyan who appeared before the court. According to Georgian MIA, one of the accused expressed his readiness to cooperate with the law-enforcement authorities and promised to name the suppliers' names.

The accused were arrested this March. They brought from Armenia 18 grams of uranium enriched up to the level of 89,4 %, which is enough to produce nuclear weapon. During a meeting in one of the Tbilisi hotels with a Georgian special services agent who claimed to be a buyer, the sellers promised to supply several kilos of enriched uranium.

As usual, Georgian authorities found a Russian trace in the "uranium affair". Georgian MIA officer Shota Utiashvili stated that uranium could be brought from the territory of Russia, though the culprits had come to Georgia by Tbilisi-Yerevan train.
