Day.Az has reported on numerous occasions that express money transfers
are carried out to Azerbaijan's occupied lands despite clear violation
of international norms and regulations.

Very recently Day.Az reported that the LIDER money transfer system and
Sberbank, largest bank in Russia and CIS area, carry out remittances
to Nagorno-Karabakh.

Day.Az continues to expose financial institutions cooperating with
separatists in Nagorno-Karabakh.

New facts emerge more and more.

Thus, one can transfer money to 90 countries worldwide and also to
Nagorno-Karabakh, which is Azerbaijan land under Armenian occupation,
with help of 'Anelik' money transfer system. Through this remittance
system one can transfer money to Armenia-occupied Nagorno-Karabakh
from 90 countries.

'Anelik' official Web site says one needs to contact the head office
of Bank Anelik RU LLC to transfer money. But besides this, the money
transfer system 'Anelik' has many partners over 500 of which is located
just in Moscow. These partners include offices and branches of such
banks as Bank Uralsib, VTB 24, Globex, AKB Promsvyazbank, Master-Bank,
Rus-Bank, Petrocommerce, etc. Money transfer can be performed from 63,
000 points.

The Web site also says one can receive remittance in six Artsakhbank
branches in Nagorno-Karabakh.

'Anelik' money transfer system and Anelik RU apparently have links with
Armenian separatists. The fact that former Armenian Foreign Minister
Vartan Oskanian is a board member of the bank testifies to it. It
is therefore not surprising that it carries out money transfers to
the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh and sponsors Armenian separatists. The
surprising is that dozens of Russian banks are cooperating with this
system of money transfers.
