YEREVAN — Statement by the Foreign Ministry of Armenia regarding the downing of the Russian Mi-24 helicopter by the armed forces of Azerbaijan

“On November 9, at around 6:00 p.m., Russian Mi-24 helicopter was shot down on the territory of the Republic of Armenia by a man-portable air-defense system fired from the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan. According to the preliminary data, two are killed and one wounded resulting from the attack.

We express our deepest condolences to the Russian Federation, to the families of the victims and their comrades.

Notably, that tragic incident occurred far away from the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone, in a place, where no military clashes have been recorded during this period. From this perspective the claims of the Azerbaijani side and attempts to justify it are false and groundless.

We strongly condemn this assault towards the Russian Armed Forces by the Azerbaijani armed forces within the sovereign territory of Armenia.

We are convinced that the use of force against the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will receive an adequate response.”
