Yerevan, 28 February: The USA is allocating over 1m dollars for the
OSCE project to eliminate rocket fuel components in Armenia, the US
embassy in Armenia has told our ITAR-TASS correspondent.
The rocket fuel components, known as “melange”, are often kept in
dilapidated containers which, in addition to inherent safety risks,
pose a significant threat to the environment, the embassy said.
