Baku claims responsibility for the destruction of a Russian helicopter in Armenia


Azerbaijan admits its guilt in unintentionally destroying a Russian attack helicopter in the skies over Armenia. The corresponding statement was made by the country's Foreign Ministry. The Foreign Ministry explained that against the background of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the said helicopter in the immediate vicinity of its borders was considered dangerous.


The combat vehicle flew at low altitude, outside the detection zone by means of radar and air defense. Previously, no Russian helicopters were spotted in the area. Taking into account the probable provocations of the Armenian side, the combat crew decided to eliminate the aircraft

- said the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry.

Official Baku expressed its readiness to pay the necessary compensation in connection with the incident.

Azerbaijan apologizes to the Russian side. The incident is casual and not directed against Russia. We express our condolences to the families of the fallen helicopter crew members

- noted in the Foreign Ministry.

Ранее стало известноthat the Russian Mi-24 attack helicopter, while in the airspace of Armenia, was hit by a missile from a MANPADS. Two crew members were killed, one was moderately injured.

    Who gave the shepherds a missile defense system? Now a helicopter, tomorrow a civilian plane. Or should Russia begin to launch mortar strikes on everyone who approaches the border?

      Yes, it was necessary to break in both of them so that they would sit quietly. Diasporas should be warned. Remind about terrorism. The action of the videoconferencing in Syria to show how everything is done in metal. Everything would be different now.

        I am more and more convinced that the human brain is also degrading at an accelerated pace. For example, the turcoazers shot down Russian equipment, killed Russian pilots on the territory of the CSTO, and the Armenians, the only ally in the south, must "break in" the Caucasus. And who in the world after that will deal with Russia?

          Recently, what other posters did you run with? Pashinyan was pulled. Russia you had this and that. And then suddenly allies. The allies got in the teeth. Your brain has long been degraded and it doesn't go further than barbecue.

            Another plus to my convictions. I did not vote for Pashinyan, but the fact is that the union agreement was not concluded by Pashinyan (Kocharyan, Sargsyan) with Putin, but Armenia with Russia. For example, if the president in Russia changes in, say, 7 years , Lukashenka will say "I don't really like the new head of" Petrov "and I will half-fulfill my allied obligations or I will freeze them." Do you think it will be okay?

            For 30 years 15 posters, oh what Armenians are Russophobes. If there were 3 posters, then they would spin these 3, if you want a reason or a reason to find. You can find thousands of such posters in Russia itself over the same period, this is a drop in the ocean.

            The posters appeared after your imbecile Permyakov killed an entire family without sparing a 2-year-old child. And there is no need to put a shadow on the fence.

            But if you want to swallow that too, for God's sake. Just think, pilot, ambassador. To them another second was added, may God rest their innocent souls.

                The criminal has no nationality. It's a pity, of course, the daughter, the murderer should be severely punished, be he three times Armenian. And if the family of the murdered comes out with anti-Armenian posters, they can be understood humanly. But how can you understand if these posters are shown every day in Armenia and say what are Russian Armenophobes? This is pure manipulation, warming up your hands on someone else's grief, which is what you are doing.

                  Since Pashinyan has been chosen, it means that the majority is for him, and since the majority for the oligophrenic patient with Russophobia, then you are not allies of the Russian Federation!

                  Your fellow countrymen blew up the Moscow metro under Brezhnev, so be quiet. You erected a monument to the animal that fought on the side of Hitler in your Yerevan, declaring him a hero of Armenia, do you think we don't know ?! And after that you have the audacity to write about the honor of the Russians ?! You have never had any honor or conscience !!!

    - that's exactly TAKING RESPONSIBILITY - very correct words. In general, everything happens suspiciously quickly: they shot down, an hour later the guilty person appeared and was ready to pay. Can people revive?

    Residents of Azerbaijan and immigrants from this country celebrate on social networks the crash of the Russian Mi-24 helicopter, which was shot down in Armenia. Azerbaijani Internet users are threatening: "It will be necessary, we will get some more."

    These are not shepherds at all, they are qualified Turkish officers who strongly recommend that the inhabitants of the military base in Gyumri not protrude.

      Erdogan is a typical stubborn, stupid Osman, and so is Aliyev. They made a very generous offer to Turku: they saved it from a coup d'etat, forgave the murder of a diplomat and the shooting down of an airplane, gave air defense systems, gave cheap energy - nuclear power plants and gas, offered spacewalk. It would seem to sit and do peaceful affairs, increase the well-being of citizens. Not appreciated, climbed where it is not necessary. Aliyev is the same stupid stubborn Osman, he also did not appreciate the gifts and also climbed where it was not necessary. And he could have ruled for a long time, developed his country in a peaceful direction and Azerbaijanis would have lived like in the emirates, trading in gas and oil. Now bad times will come for Turkey and Azerbaijan and both peoples will be pulled onto the pitchfork of their presidents.

          No, it will not be normal for them, and it is precisely because of their (Erdogan and Aliyev) natural stupid obstinacy. Now, when our peacekeepers have stood in Karabakh, it would be possible to put an end to Erdogan's plans to collect land, but Erdogan is stupid and stubborn and will not put a cross, which means he will continue to spend money on this project, and the Turkish lira is already falling rapidly. In short, the cap is not in the least and Turkey will break economically with all the ensuing consequences. Also, do not forget that it suddenly dawned on Iran that if you let Erdogan reach the Caspian Sea through Azerbaijan, then American military bases will immediately appear at the borders of Iran with all the ensuing consequences. Azerbaijan will now be economically lowered as a punishment and for prevention.

      If you take compensation, it will look like a habit. And they will get used to killing yours more and more varied. "Fortunately" the babakhs are already nearby, in Azerbazhan. "The hand that you cannot cut off, kiss and put it on your forehead." A Turkish proverb. They will continue to chop until they arrive. It all depends on the reaction of Russia. In my opinion, it should be indicative and harsh. You decide.

      Silently gather and bring down from Gyumri to the native aspens while the business is limited to only one helicopter. And save the "Calibers" for holiday parades because these wunderwafele targets are successfully destroyed exclusively in the reports of the Russian government media. It is no coincidence that Calibers are said to be miraculous missiles: wherever such a missile falls, there is always the adversary's headquarters. lol

    It is clear (to me personally) that the helicopter was shot down intentionally,they were waiting for him, and this is evidenced by the fact that the shooting camera was directed exactly where the rocket hit !!!!!
    And here the apology of Azerbaijan looks like a slap in the face, and their offer of compensation is just the height of arrogance and cynicism, as if the tomatoes were destroyed and not our pilots.
    And I don’t understand the Foreign Ministry’s statements at all, based on their statements one might think that our people can be shot down and killed, the main thing is to admit their guilt. And if there is no hard answer, then it will simply not be understood, but everyone will not understand. I generally keep quiet about the consequences.

    Baku claims responsibility for the destruction of a Russian helicopter in Armenia

    - Yes, yeaaa ...
    - This has become for us Russians already a brutal tradition ... and sad karma ... - And who else did not kill Russians with impunity ... and did not train on Russian air and other equipment ... -How vulnerable it is and how easy it is to destroy it ... - just like in the shooting range ... - So the Azerbaijanis have noted themselves in this field ... - And what's next ... - And then; and then ... - Azerbaijan will send us two cisterns of Baku oil as compensation and ... and our fish-eyed guarantor will take all this and will rip off a certain amount from our taxpayers towards paying the families of poor Russian pilots ... - That's all .. . - And what else ??? -This is "quite enough" ...
    - Oh, yes, how did I forget ... - "duty phrases" ... - "Eternal memory to them" ... and something in this spirit "...; which lately are being prayed more often and more often they sound just blasphemous ...
    = Well, and Armenia has on this occasion ... -small unexpected joy and weak hope ... - suddenly a timid backward Russia will now harness for them ... -No, we won't ... we just pretend that nothing happened ...
    = Well, and Azerbaijan is very proud of this ... - just take and overwhelm a Russian combat helicopter ... - It turns out that you can bring down poorly trained Russian pilots so easily and with impunity ... along with their vaunted equipment ... - Any objections to this ??? - Once Russia made heroes out of Chechens ...; then she made heroes out of the Turks (Erdogan's rating after that just skyrocketed); - and now they have also made heroes out of Azerbaijanis ... - and all at the expense of the "gratuitous Russian blood" ...
    - Who's next "next in line" ... - from whom else will we make "heroes" ???

      Russia's public response has come. Russia introduces a regiment of its peacekeepers to Nagorno-Karabakh and Aliyev, sighing with joy, agrees that this may be the end of the story with the Russian helicopter. Pashinyan is forced to grudgingly agree to peace.
