Private of the NKR Defense Army Erik Grigoryan, born in 1995, was killed as the Army thwarted an infringement attempt by the Azerbaijani side in the northeastern direction (Talish) of the line of contact.
The front divisions of the NKR Defense Army were quick to spot the advancement of the Azerbaijani troops and rebuff the attack.
The NKR Ministry of Defense shares the sorrow of this heavy loss and expresses its sympathy to the families and friends of the soldier.
The Azerbaijani side violated the ceasefire about 80 times last night. The rival used weapons of different caliber as it fired more than 650 shots in the direction of the Armenian positions.
The NKR Defense Ministry said the Army divisions are taking necessary measures to silence the rival.
