Unlike us, the Armenian side has never taken such steps. They do not share official information about the so-called conducted military exercises in advance, they only share old photos and videos of several combat vehicles after the training. Fearing of our training held within the framework of our internationally recognized borders, official Yerevan does not give up to make fictitious and ridiculous statements that we violate any of the requirements allegedly.
