Where is Serzh getting his money for this venture?

I just have to ask what this is about? Is this a government run deal via the office of the Minister of Defence, or is this a business deal that Serzh is doing on his own using money he has stolen from the people? Any details on how much he payed for rights to the factory?

Yerevan, 12 May:
Armenian Defence Minister Serzh Sarkisyan and OSCE Secretary-General Marc Perrin de Brichambaut have opened a plant to process melange near the village of Kaltakhchi in Armenia's Lori Region.

A depot with 872 tonnes of rocket fuel components - a liquid oxidizer called melange - remained in Armenia after the collapse of the USSR. Melange is a highly toxic and aggressive substance that poses a treat to the population and environment.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the plant today, Sarkisyan noted the importance of this event in the context of ensuring environmental security, Mediamax news agency reports. Sarkisyan pointed out that the plant is a graphic example of effective cooperation between the OSCE and the Armenian Defence Ministry.

The plant to process melange will operate until August 2007 and produce 5,200 tonnes of liquid fertilizers.

Money for the construction of the plant to process melange was allocated by the USA, Finland, Germany and Canada.
