The Armenian community gave Nancy Pelosi $50 million in donations, $25 million for travel expenses, and another $15 million to praise Pashinyan, minval.az reported.
The website argued that ” It is known that Pelosi’s visit to Yerevan was discussed in early September. But due to the US government refusing to pay for Pelosi’s travel expenses, the visit was cancelled. The US government “refused to allocate funds for Pelosi’s visit to Yerevan at the expense of ordinary American taxpayers.” Later it became known that part of the cost of Nancy Pelosi’s visit was borne by the Armenian committee – ANCA, operating in Congress. The other part was paid by Russian businessman Ruben Vardanyan. Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Armenia cost the Armenian community no less than $120 million.
From these open sources, it can be traced that $75 million was transferred to the account of Armenian lobbyists in Washington through Ruben Vardanyan’s bank. 50 million of that amount was designated as a “one-time donation” to the Democratic Party. The remaining $25 million was allocated for security and other expenses during Nancy’s 72-hour visit to Armenia.
The Armenian company that organized the trip will allocate another $15 million for Speaker of the US House of Representatives Pelosi to separately defend Nikol Pashinyan in her closing statement.
In addition, 3 more representatives of the human mediation company who are representatives of the mediated complaint will receive $10 million each as a fee.”
