The task was given to prevent the activity of the enemy, and our units began to operate. Enemy positions on the front line stops, reserves, more than 100 troops were destroyed. Monitoring of the Armenian media and social networks shows that the enemy has lost hundreds. The Armenian side hides the losses. Probably, after a while, Armenia will regularly reveal its losses under different names."
