Russian Ambassador Denies Azeri Claims

BAKU (Armenpress)–Russian ambassador to Azerbaijan Vasili Istratov Thursday denied Azerbaijani allegations that part of military hardware that was moved from Russian bases in Georgia to Armenia has ended up in Nagorno-Karabakh.
Speaking at a news conference in Baku the ambassador described these allegations as "groundless."
"Regarding Russian military equipment in the Russian military base in Armenia, it is handled exclusively by Russian servicemen," he said.
The ambassador said the Azerbaijani side expressed its concern to the Russian Defense Ministry over the fact that many of the Russian base’s personnel in Armenia are ethnic Armenia’s.
