Spokesperson of the RA Ministry of Defense Shushan Stepanyan

The announcement of the Azerbaijani side on Armenia’s alleged launching of ballistic missiles in the direction of Gabala and Kurdamir is utter nonsense and a cynic lie. No missile has been fired from the territory of the Republic of Armenian in the direction of Azerbaijan.
