Defense ministry: Armenia is engaged in “heroic activity” on paper


The Defense Ministry has commented on the reports on Armenians’ shooting an Azerbaijani soldier.

The ministry told APA that Armenians shared false news and misinformation on social networks. “No Azerbaijani soldier called Natig Gurbanov serves in the position in the army as Armenians claim.

The enemy’s use of such misinformation as part of its propaganda seems to be a last resort. The enemy who makes unsuccessful attempts wants to pretend as “hero” on paper or in the virtual space”, said the ministry.   

The ministry also said that the Armenian armed forces lost six of its servicemen on 16-17 June.

“Now the enemy is reporting its numerous wounded soldiers on separate days giving different explanations so as to keep the public calm,” the statement said.

It is worth noting that reports have surfaced on Armenian social networks about the alleged killing of an Azerbaijani soldier by Armenian armed forces. The soldier is reported to be Natig Gurbanov.
