Two Russian soldiers injured by landmine in Karabakh

Two Russian soldiers from the military contingent deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh were injured at the weekend when their vehicle hit a landmine.

Speaking to ARMENPRESS, the spokesperson of self-styled Interior Ministry of the de facto Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, Hunan Tadevosyan, stated:

“The vehicle exploded on an anti-tank landmine. Two servicemen were wounded.”

ARMENPRESS reports that both were hospitalised with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The Russian military contingent was deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh as part of the 10 November tripartite agreement between Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia, which ended the 44-day Karabakh war.
