    Only the Armenians are profitable, the Azerbaijanis are not in any way profitable to touch the Russian Federation, so the Armenians may have shot down in order to drag the RF Armed Forces into the conflict in Karabakh ...

      Are you holding us for full idiots? Or will the investigation not show which side the rocket came from?

        Yes, you are right, there is no need to rush to conclusions, the Azerbaijanis were shot down ... The conclusion is - no need to revolve around the places with hostilities ... It looks like the Malaysian MH-17 over Donbas was shot down, too, they considered it an enemy and shied away. There, the perpetrators of the dispatcher, who sent a civilian plane into the war zone, are now sending them to a long bypass ...

          What are the fighting in Nakhichevan? There are no battles in this area. Where is Karabakh and where is Nakhijevan? But if you are so indecisive that your helicopters are shot down on the territory of an ally outside the combat zone, then maybe you really need to sit quieter than water below the grass? Do you need it? Just think, authority, helicopter, crew. Shot down the same Su 24 and Il-20 and nothing. You are no stranger.

      Azerbaijan apologizes for downed Russian helicopter
      The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry said that a Russian military helicopter shot down Baku. This happened "in the light of the tense situation in the region and increased combat readiness in connection with possible provocations of the Armenian side," the ministry said.

      Azerbaijan "apologizes to the Russian side in connection with this tragic incident, which is of the nature of an accident."

          Of course, it's a pity for the guys, but when we, the Armenians, spoke, asked, and shouted that the rogue was against us, you didn't really believe us. They scoffed as soon as they didn't call names. See now that we are not Russophobes or traitors? Are you convinced?

    Who benefits from? And how could Azerbaijan find out about the movement of the column? The helicopter definitely bore the identification marks of Russia. It is not profitable for Azerbaijan, but even very much for the Turkish militants. Many questions. If they want, ours will figure it out. Another thing is what to punish how?

      Azerbaijan apologizes for "accidentally shot down" Russian Mi-24

      Again you wanted to blame everything on a weak ally? Did not work out. Armenia did not confuse anything. We are not traitors and not suicides to shoot down equipment that was supposed to protect us.

    Randomness. It is a pity for the guys that they died for the interests of others.
    This incident will not affect the situation in Karabakh in any way. There, the defense of the Armenians is crumbling. The sooner Armenia admits its defeat and withdraws its troops, the less blood there will be.
    In any case, Azerbaijan did not hide and try to hide the facts. There, from the border to the road fork, about 1 km. Plus it’s dark. I do not condone the calculation of air defense. They will definitely be punished.
    Azerbaijan has admitted its guilt and apologizes. For my part, I express my condolences to the families and friends of the victims.

            Do not worry. Baku and Moscow will solve their problems. Think how to get your feet out of Karabakh. The faster, the less blood there will be.

                These wet dreams are no longer funny. Azerbaijan is a completely sovereign state that solves its own problems. Unlike Armenia, which actually lost its statehood long ago. And your prime minister is absolutely right when he talks about the danger of losing statehood. He's only wrong about one thing. There is no such danger. Statehood has already been lost.
                The territory, which is protected by another state, where the main economic objects belong to another state, and finances are more than half dependent on foreign receipts cannot be called a state in any way.
                But you won't understand it. This is not for average minds.

    Russian helicopter Mi-24 shot down in the airspace of Armenia

    - And Aliyev apologized ... - there was a "mistake" ...
    - Ha ... - it turns out that everything was filmed on camera ... - there is a video of the whole process ... - This is a "mistake" ... - everything is very carefully prepared and everything is very definitely savagely purposefully done ... - where to shoot ; who to shoot; and who to shoot ... - In other glories ... - Azerbaijan deliberately struck the positions of the Russian troops that are not at war with Azerbaijan and are not conducting any military operations with Azerbaijan ...
    - Personally, I can only express my opinion on this matter ... - Here it is:
    - Immediate delivery of missile strikes by Russia (even with Caliber) on the nearest Azerbaijani military airfields (at least one at a time), from where Azerbaijani UAVs took off; the immediate closure of all Food City in Russia; the immediate closure of the "Bakhtiyar" fruit and vegetable market trade and the deportation of these trade "bakhtiars" outside the territory of Russia ... - let them go to trade in Turkey ... - they will be very happy there ...
    - Then it will be possible to believe Aliyev; that he is very ashamed of the "mistake" he has made ... - And he is unlikely to want to be so "wrong" in the future ...

    As always on the site, most of them were seriously mistaken. Hit the sky with your finger. To the very middle.
    Armenia withdraws troops from Karabakh. The hostilities cease. Peacekeeping troops are deployed to Karabakh. Russian. And who is in the black? Turkey or Russia?

      Turkey and Azerbaijan are positive, they have the joy of victory. We have another headache. Our lads are at gunpoint. On both sides. Azerbaijanis went against Russia and won in Karabakh. They are Turkey's allies, not ours. Provocations are guaranteed. The Armenians are offended that the Russians did not intervene and will try to win back. Nichol snorted, did not wait, he does not wear a tie or does not matter

    Like Turkey, Azerbaijan shows us that it is not afraid of the Russians and does not value them. The destruction of a Russian helicopter is the cherry on top of Azerbaijan's victory cake. And each of us probably pondered, and how should the armed forces of the Russian Federation act in this situation. And it appears more and more often and the enemy becomes more and more arrogant. If they asked me, I would answer: I would strike back. And it doesn't matter what it is. A blow to their plane, helicopter, or a gas pipeline. I propose to vote. Question: What should the Russian Federation do in a situation when a Mi-24 VKS helicopter was shot down? Answer: 1. Strike back. 2. Look for the culprit. Who for the first answer presses plus for the comment, who for the second presses minus.

    And where are the glaring systems of ammunition with the seeker, which, according to the Zvezda TV channel, are on every Russian aircraft, praised by Podkopaev, which have no analogues in the world? Lies again?
