Armenia: Azerbaijan's claims of downing Su-25 are false

The announcement of the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan that a Su-25 airplane belonging to the Armenian side was allegedly shot down on October 17 is another disinformation, Defense Ministry spokeswoman Shushan Stepanyan has said.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
