Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry issues information

Baku, June 9, AZERTAC

“As a result of additional investigations, it has been found out that a serviceman of the Armenian armed forces Artur Kartanyan, detained on June 8, 2021, in the territory of the Lachin district of the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border, penetrated the territory of Azerbaijan, not for the purpose of committing a provocation,” Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Defense told AZERTAC.

“Due to the fact that during the initial interrogations Artur Kartanyan behaved suspiciously and gave inaccurate answers, suspicions arose that he was a member of the sabotage group of the Armenian armed forces.

Taking into consideration the above-mentioned, Artur Kartanyan was returned to the Armenian side.

Thus, once again demonstrating the humanism of the Azerbaijani side, we ensure the return of a person who has not committed a crime against our country,” the ministry said.
