The Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile-gun complex, liquidated a few days ago in Nagorno-Karabakh, turned out not to be Russian, as was thought initially, but of Iranian production.

This is reported by According to the newspaper, the complex was placed by the Iranian military on the border of the state for their own safety, however, Azerbaijani drones identified it as an enemy air defense system and struck at it. “Iran is interested in the stabilization of the war in Nagorno-Karabakh, solely for the security of its own territory. That is why, probably, he could send his air defense systems to the border. They hit any target flying towards Iran, ”the newspaper notes.

However, military experts disagree on whether the complex was actually destroyed, as no evidence was presented. “Russia has stated that it does not intervene in the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, but provides support to Armenia within the framework of the agreements. Then whose was this supposedly destroyed "Pantsir-S" actually? Russian? Iranian?" - writes "Free Press". The publication believes that an information war continues with respect to the conflict that broke out on the border. Let us remind you that a few days ago Azerbaijan announced that it destroyed the Russian "Pantsir" with the help of the Turkish Bayraktar drone.

The war in Nagorno-Karabakh has been going on since the end of September. Azerbaijan is conquering the territory that it considers historically its own. Armenia is ready to recognize its independence if it helps to stop the war. Earlier, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that this war is being waged in order to change the status of this territory. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said that the country does not intend to resolve the issue peacefully : Azerbaijan will first recapture the territory back, and then will be ready to negotiate. There is a third party to the conflict - Iran. Earlier, the country stated that it will support Armenia in this confrontation. Iran is ready to provide it with military assistance "upon first request." For this, tanks and artillery were pulled to the border. In addition, Iran threatened the enemy if at least one missile arrives on its territory, the country will retaliate . Earlier, according to this strategy , the offensive operation of Baku in Nagorno-Karabakh was disrupted .
