ArmInfo.The defeat of the Armenian Armed Forces car in the Nakhichevan direction of the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border should be considered in the context of diversion penetration attempts carried out by special forces of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces on the evening of May 22 at the Contact Line with Artsakh. Former adviser to the President of Artsakh Tigran Abrahamyan shares similar opinion.
He drew attention to the fact that before that, the Azerbaijani Armed Forces simultaneously conducted large-scale military exercises in the territories adjacent to the border with Armenia and Artsakh. "On the one hand, this can be seen as the" testing "of exercises, and on the other, direct steps to exacerbate the situation locally. Both options are not acceptable. In any case, the defeat of a military vehicle is not from" ordinary "cases, and it's good that as a result our servicemen were not affected by this incident, "he said, adding that in any case, both of these incidents are difficult to consider as steps to sharply aggravate the situation.
At the same time, Abrahamyan believes that the situation may be aggravated gradually, but at this stage it will have a local character. As it became known from the message of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia, the day before, as a result of a fire opened by the enemy at Armenian positions in the direction of Nakhichevan, the car of the RA Ministry of Defense was damaged and burned down.
