Hacking group “Anonymous” has announced on its Twitter account the breaking into the computer network of the Azerbaijan Embassy in Bulgaria and posted an open access to data related to the Azerbaijani airline “Silk Way” and all the files from the computer of the Ambassador of Azerbaijan and all the employees of this embassy. In the archive weighing 11 gigabytes, there were many letters classified as “Top Secret”, as well as confidential letters, with instructions for combating the anti-Armenian propaganda. However, most of all, users of the social network Twitter were excited by the letters with diplomatic cover for the transportation of weapons and ammunition for the militants of terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq.
So, it became known from the letters that Air company, during the last few years, had made regular flights transporting for the needs of terrorists cargo from military factories in Slovakia, Bulgaria, Croatia and other countries, while providing fictitious contracts to aviation services and the foreign ministries of those countries, which were followed by a transit flight, as well as with the form of payment “cash in bag”. However, the most striking of all was the hypocrisy when the official government of Azerbaijan demanded for its planes a diplomatic status for landing, take-off and transit of transported goods, pointing out in letters interstate agreements.
According to the leaked documents, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan has ordered its diplomats across Europe and Asia to request diplomatic clearance for overflight and/or landing for flights carrying weapons by the Azerbaijan’s state airline. Such clearances have been granted to hundreds of Silk Way’s flights in violation of international law.
Many of the flights carrying military cargo have made technical stops varying from 2h to 10 h and even more in different locations en-route to the end-user party.
Since the publication of the letters, the official representatives of Azerbaijan have made no comment so far.
