Representatives of Azerbaijan should not allow ambiguous statements in connection with the downed Russian combat helicopter by Azerbaijanis, and Moscow expects Baku to investigate and punish those responsible as soon as possible. With such statements, the Russian Foreign Ministry reacted to the words “in war as in war” said about the incident by Azerbaijani Ambassador to Russia Polad Bulbul-oglu, RIA Novosti reported.

“This is a big mistake. If Russia professed the principle “in war as in war”, the answer would be crushing. In Moscow, they took Baku’s words about an admission of guilt and apologies, ”the agency quotes the words of the Foreign Ministry representatives.

“In war, as in war, anything can happen” – this is how Bulbul-oglu commented on the death of two Russian pilots earlier today.

On November 9, the Azerbaijani military from a portable anti-aircraft missile system (MANPADS) shot down a Mi-24 helicopter of the Russian Armed Forces. Two crew members were killed. The Russian side did not return fire. According to official data, the helicopter accompanied a convoy of a Russian military base located in Armenia. Baku pleaded guilty and expressed readiness to pay compensation.

On the same evening, the leaders of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan signed a statement on the cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh. According to the document, the Armenian and Azerbaijani sides remain in the positions they occupied during the battles. Three more regions will be transferred under the control of Baku by December 1. Russian peacekeepers will be deployed along the line of contact and along the corridor linking Armenia and Karabakh.

Azerbaijan regarded the results of the war as a victory. Riots began in Armenia, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
