ArmInfo.The investigation of a criminal case on the fact of the unleashing and conducting of an aggressive war against the Republic of Artsakh by the military-political leadership of the Republic of Azerbaijan, recruiting mercenaries, using prohibited methods and means of warfare, systematic shelling of civilians continues in the Department for Investigation of Particularly Important Cases of the Main Military Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee of the Republic of Armenia.
As reported by the press service of the Investigative Committee of Armenia, within the framework of the criminal case, it was established that the total number of deaths of servicemen and civilians in the Republic of Artsakh and Armenia as a result of the aggressive war unleashed by Azerbaijan in the Republic of Artsakh and Armenia is 3781 people.
As of September 27, 2021, the whereabouts of 231 servicemen and 22 civilians are not known. To this day, the Republic of Azerbaijan has transferred 108 captured military personnel and civilians to the Republic of Armenia.
To remind, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan at a parliamentary session on August 24, presenting the government's 5-year program, assured that during the 44-day war in Artsakh, 3,773 Armenian servicemen were killed, 243 were missing.
It is noteworthy that the Armenian authorities each time provide different information about the losses, while tirelessly assuring that, undoubtedly, the losses do not exceed 4,000 people. To note, only in the course of search operations carried out from November 13 to the present day, as of September 25, the remains of 1,670 dead were found. And on November 17, 2020, the then Minister of Health Arsen Torosyan reported that the officially confirmed death toll of servicemen from the first day of the fighting to November 17 was 2,425, and the bodies of another 250 have not been identified. Arithmetic is powerless in this case, and even with a strong desire it is impossible to understand how the calculations were carried out by the employees of the Investigative Committee of Armenia.
