President of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) Arayik Haroutyunyan posted the following on his Facebook page:
Today Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov made an interesting statement in which he stated that there are almost 2,000 terrorists who have been brought to the region. I would like to assure Mr. Lavrov that Artsakh has succeeded in destroying more than half of those terrorists during the fight against terrorism (they have either been killed or wounded), and we will lead a more resolute battle in the near future in order to eliminate those who have stayed alive.
As a matter of fact, during the battles, Azerbaijani units send those terrorist groups in the front, controlling their movement through weapons from the rear and firing at them in case they retreat.
This is our last war, and we’re going to fight until the end.
P.S. Spreading this information among Syrian users is encouraged since the relatives of the terrorists fighting against the peace-loving people of Artsakh must know the truth.”
