Investigating Committee of Armenia reports number of soldiers missing in Karabakh

In total, during the autumn aggravation of the Karabakh conflict, 275 people are listed as missing from the Armenian side, the Investigating Committee of Armenia reports.

The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that in Armenia, relatives of the soldiers missing in action during the autumn aggravation of the conflict repeatedly went to protest actions. They demanded from the authorities to announce the exact number of the soldiers missing in action. So, on April 7, the Day of Motherhood and Beauty, female activists of the “Veto” movement accused the Armenian authorities of pro-Turkish policy and concealment of information about combat losses and prisoners of war (POWs).

The losses of both sides during the aggravation of the conflict in Karabakh are approximately equal, and the total death toll will amount to approximately 10,300 people, a blogger of the “Caucasian Knot” calculated in December 2020.

On June 16, former Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan announced that the number of soldiers missing in action during the autumn aggravation of the conflict reached 1064 people.

Let us remind you that on April 14, Nikol Pashinyan reported the number of those killed in the battles for Nagorno-Karabakh. According to him, about 4000 Armenian soldiers were killed, 3621 of whom have been identified, and 321 people are declared missing in action.
