Russia Provides Food Aid To Armenia

I wonder who will pocket the profits.

It is not yet clear just how the authorities in Yerevan plan to use the food aid. Yeritsian said only that it would be stored at warehouses of his ministry's Agency for State Reserves for the time being.

Government critics believe that the impact of external factors on domestic food prices would have been less severe had lucrative imports of wheat and other basic foodstuffs to Armenia not been effectively monopolized by a handful of government-linked businessmen.

Military aid, food aid, ... what next?

I don't know. One would think that a country that dubs itself as the Tiger of Caucasus would not need any kind of aid.

Something is not right here.
