Armenian President Armen Sarkissian has asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to help with the return of the prisoners of war.

He sent a corresponding letter to the politician.

Armenian President Armen Sarkissian has appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding the return of prisoners of war and hostages, the website of the Armenian president says.

The Armenian society and the diaspora are concerned about the situation of prisoners of war. The help of the Russian president can become ‘assistance in solving an extremely painful issue,’ Sarkissian noted.

In addition, he asked for the return of the bodies of the servicemen.

On the night of November 10, the leaders of Russia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia, Vladimir Putin, Ilham Aliyev, and Nikol Pashinyan, adopted a joint statement on the conditions for ending the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. Under the terms of the agreement, the armies of Armenia and Azerbaijan remained in their places. Russia deployed peacekeepers to monitor compliance with the ceasefire.

NEWS.ru reported earlier that the French Foreign Ministry refused to recognize the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
