However, the  NKR Ministry of Defense denied this information, urging the public  not to believe the false accusations of the Azerbaijani side aimed at  humiliating the image of the Armenian soldier, and to wait for the  ongoing investigation, the results of which will be published.

The Armenian Ombudsman Arman Tatoyan also addressed the incident,  saying that he had talked with the head of the Armenian mission of  the International Committee of the Red Cross, where he was informed  that he had not seen the Armenian soldier in Azerbaijan yet, but  steps were being taken in this direction.
