 In case of a war with Azerbaijan, Russia will help Armenia, Head of the Armenian Armed Forced General Staff Yuri Khachaturov has told reporters.

Asked why doesn't Russia assist Armenia as its CSTO ally in such incidents like the latest deadly shootouts on the border with Nakhijevan, in the area of Yeraskh, Khachaturov said. "It was just an episode, not war.  In case of war, Russia will help us." 

He recalled that Moscow supports Armenia by training Armenian officers at the best military academies in Russia and supplying weapons and military hardware. However, Yuri Khachaturov did not comment on the remarks that Moscow supplies the same arms also to Azerbaijan.
