Moments ago, an aircraft with 44 Armenian prisoners-of-war landed in Yerevan from Azerbaijan, Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan informs.
They are met by a delegation headed by Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia Tigran Avinyan and President of Artsakh Arayik Harutyunyan.
A process of exchanging prisoners took place today through the mediation of Russian peacekeepers. 44 of our officially confirmed compatriots have moved to Armenia from Azerbaijan.
At this stage, the Armenian captives whose captivity has been confirmed by the Azerbaijani Red Cross are being returned. The process of finding missing and possibly captured other compatriots and organizing their return continues intensively.
Additional information on the returned captives will be provided later.
