The head of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service released important information.
According to Sputnik, in a commentary by the head of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, Sergei Naryshkin, published on the official website of the SVR press bureau, it is said that thousands of militants from terrorist organizations in the Middle East are being transferred to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.
“According to the information available in the SVR, mercenaries from international terrorist organizations fighting in the Middle East, in particular, Jabhat al-Nusra, Firkat Hamza, Sultan Murad, as well as extremist Kurdish groups, are actively pulling into the conflict zone. Moreover, we are talking about hundreds and even thousands of radicals hoping to make money on the new Karabakh war”, – the commentary says.
Sources of the Telegram channel WarGonzo in Istanbul, who were previously the first to talk about the presence of mercenaries from Syria in Azerbaijan, also confirm the information of the SVR.
“In addition to the Syrian “jihadists”, Baku is going to attract up to 1000 militants from Central Asia for the operation on the Karabakh front. We are talking about mercenaries from Pakistan and Afghanistan. Naturally – religious radicals”, – the message says.
According to the channel, besides Turkey, Baku has close military ties with Islamabad. In Pakistan, Azerbaijan buys weapons and trains individual military specialists.

“In turn, our source in Istanbul explains the transfer of these militants by the fact that the Azerbaijani military cannot cope with fierce close combat, which sometimes reaches hand-to-hand combat. There is no motivation. “Jihadists” who are ready to die for their radical religious beliefs are another matter”, – journalist Semyon Pegov, the author of the channel, said.
