The number of mercenaries transferred from the Middle East to the Karabakh conflict zone is approaching 2,000. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated this in an interview with Kommersant.

"Of course, we are concerned about the internationalization of the Karabakh conflict, the involvement of militants from the Middle East. "We have repeatedly called on foreign nationals to use the opportunity to prevent the transfer of mercenaries themselves, whose number is reportedly approaching 2,000 in the conflict zone," Lavrov said.

The Minister stressed that the issue was addressed by Russian President Vladimir Putin during a telephone conversation with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan on October 27, as well as during regular contacts between Azerbaijani President Ilham Ali and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
