Statement by the spokesperson of the Russian Ministry of Defence
The Russian Defence Ministry, with bewilderment and surprise, got acquainted with the statement of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan that the Iskander missiles used in Nagorno-Karabakh by the Armenian Armed Forces "did not explode or only exploded by 10%."
According to the objective and reliable information that we have, confirmed by the system of objective control, none of the missile systems of this type were used during the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.
All missile ammunition is in the warehouses of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Armenia.
Apparently, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, Mr. Nikol Pashinyan, was misled, as a result of which he used inaccurate information.
The 9K720-E (Iskander-E) operational-tactical missile system has been tested and successfully used many times in combat conditions in the Syrian Arab Republic against international terrorist groups.
This gives us full reason to assert that the 9K720-E Iskander-E missile system produced in Russia is the best in its class in the world.
This is recognized by everyone.
