Head of Armenian village accuses Azerbaijani soldiers of stealing a car

Soldiers stole a car that a resident of the Syunik Region of Armenia had to leave in the territory controlled by Azerbaijan, the head of the border village of Tekh reports today.

The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that on June 5, according to the Armenian Ministry of Defence (MoD), the Azerbaijani armed forces opened fire on an Armenian shepherd, who was grazing cattle in the vicinity of the village of Kut in the Gegarkunik Region, and captured his herd of cows. Then a shootout with Armenian soldiers took place.

Nerses Shadunts, the head of the Tekh village community in the Syunik Region, stated that the Azerbaijani soldiers had stolen an UAZ car from a resident of Nagorno-Karabakh who temporarily settled in the village. According to the head of the village, the incident took place three days ago, and the car has not yet been returned. Both Armenian border guards and Russian peacekeepers were notified about the incident, the head of the community emphasized.

The car owner tried to drive his UAZ car to Nagorno-Karabakh. “On the way back, he decided to go through the fields. He got lost and drove (100-200 metres) into the territory under the control of the Azerbaijani armed forces <...>. Then he realized his mistake and tried to return to our territory, but the fuel ran out,” Nerses Shadunts said. The owner left the car and went to get fuel, but when he returned, the car was gone, the “Sputnik Armenia” reports today.
