  Sale of Russian weapons to Azerbaijan is just business, Russian Ambassador to Armenia Ivan Volynkin told reporters.

According to the ambassador, selling tanks to the enemy of one's strategic ally is not reprehensible. "There is no politics in that deal. One should not focus on such issues. There is no criminal is that deal, nothing terrible has happened. Our military-technical relations and trade with Armenia keep developing as well and there is not special about all that," Volynkin said.

It was reported on 26 May that Russia plans to supply another ordered lot of 6 TOS-1A heavy flamethrower systems. According to Uralvagonzavod plant, under a contract with Azerbaijan, that country will receive 18 items of TOS-1A "Solntsegorsk." Last year, Russian supplied the first lot of 6 systems.
In addition, on 23 May, Konstantin Byrulin, Deputy Head of the Federal Services for Military-Technical Cooperation of Russia, said Azerbaijan has already received 100 tanks T-90C and another 100 tanks may be delivered to Baku later, along with helicopters Mi-171 and Mi-35, armored vehicles, light weapons, and mortar howitzers.
