Today, Artsakh’s Human Rights Defender Artak Beglaryan said that a unit of about 60 Armenian servicemen are missing in the direction of the village of Khtsaberd in the Hadrut region.

His post reads as follows:

“I have contacted a number of bodies and some servicemen on the ground about information about new Armenian prisoners of war.

According to my preliminary data, a unit of about 60 servicemen is missing in the direction of the village of Khtsaberd in the Hadrut region, which is most likely seen in the video published by the Azerbaijani side.

This incident is absolutely unacceptable, which must be investigated quickly and strictly by law enforcement agencies to find out all the circumstances and the culprits. All the authorized bodies of the Republic of Armenia are obliged to take immediate steps to return all our prisoners of war home a minute in advance. In addition, it is necessary to provide clear information to the relatives of prisoners of war, to conduct as transparent public communication as possible, in order to avoid misinformation and unnecessary tensions.”

“Yesterday evening, in still unknown conditions, the connection was lost with the personnel of several military positions of the Artsakh Defense Army located in the direction of the Hin Tagher of Hadrut and Khtsaberd.
