Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry has dismissed a report on the Armenian serviceman who got wounded as a result of fire by the Azerbaijani side.
This information disseminated by the Armenian media is completely wrong, the ministry told APA.
Earlier, a spokesman for Armenia’s Defense Ministry said that contracted military serviceman Adibek Mikoyan (b. 1987) was wounded by the Azerbaijani side.
The Azerbaijani Armed Forces fully comply with the ceasefire regime, said the ministry, adding. “This incident, which happened as a result of arbitrariness and disobedience in the Armenian army, is presented in this form for the purpose of hiding the reality from the Armenian public.”
“This is not the first case when the Armenian military leadership is attempting to put the blame for the non-combat losses in its army on the Azerbaijani side. However, if an objective investigation is carried out, it will be clear to the Armenian public which Armenian soldier opened fire, added the ministry,” noted the ministry.
