Azerbaijan, Baku, 5 March / corr. Trend S. Agayeva/ Russia is perplexed by the ceasefire breach between Azerbaijan and Armenia. "We are always perplexed by any ceasefire breach on the frontline of the Azerbaijani and Armenian Armed Forces and yesterday's breach differs from previous ones with its intensity," Vasiliy Istratov, the Russian Ambassador to Azerbaijan said to journalists on 5 March.
There has been an exchange of fire between the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan and Armenia in the occupied lands of Azerbaijan starting on the morning of 4 March.
Some 12 Armenian solders were killed and 15 seriously injured. Four soldiers from Azerbaijan died and one was wounded during the exchange of fire, the Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan said.
