Does the Defense Ministry recognize the “Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh”?
To put it mildly, a strange announcement has been hanging on the Russian Unified State Procurement Information Site for two weeks.
So, the application number 0173100004521001645 says:
“Provision of services for the organization and implementation of comprehensive maintenance of the barracks and housing stock of the military camps of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation located on the territory of the Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh.”
The customer of the service is the MINISTRY OF DEFENSE OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION
151 414 088.10 rubles. The order was placed on August 13.
Despite three weeks have passed, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry and the embassy in Moscow are silent.
The position of the Russian Ministry of Defense is also incomprehensible, which did not correct the EIS if a mistake was made there.
If these are deliberate or unconscious actions of the Russian military department, then Baku is obliged to demand explanations at the highest level.
