    The State Border Committee of Belarus confirmed to Sputnik on Monday that radioactive materials were found aboard an Armenian aircraft en route to Bulgaria.

    MINSK (Sputnik) — Bychkovsky noted that the aircraft, which he said was not a passenger flight, was flying from Armenia to Bulgaria via Belarus.

    "I can confirm this fact. The incident took place on [Sunday] March 19 at Gomel Airport," spokesman Anton Bychkovsky said following President Alexander Lukashenko's assertion earlier in the day.
