On October 15, Armenia claimed that its forces had shot down another Azerbaijani Su-25 warplane over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

The claims were made by Garik Movsesyan, Deputy Commander of the Armenian Air Defense Force, who didn’t provide any further details.

In a statement, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan dismissed the Armenian claims, calling them “false information.” Armenia is yet to present an evidence to back its claims.

The Armenian military made similar claims on October 12 and 14. However, the Azerbaijani MoD denied losing any Su-25 warplane on both occasions.

Armenia claims that its Air Defense Force has downed 20 warplanes, 16 helicopters and 180 drones since the outbreak of the battle in Nagorno-Karabakh on the 27th of September.

These claims are an example of the ongoing propaganda war between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The Azerbaijani MoD and senior officials in the country fabricated accusations against Armenia on several occasions.
