The situation ot the Armenian-Azerbaijani border is being fully controlled by  the Armed Forces of Armenia, press-secretary of Defence  Ministry, Artsrun Hovhannisyan, wrote at his Facebook page. 

'If we say that the situation is under control, it means that is  really so. If it would not be controlled, we would have quite  another situation", - he said and called on citizens not to panic. At  the same time, he called on all those who are ready to defend  our borders, to apply to Armenia's Defence Ministry.

To recall, two Armenian soldiers were killed by  Azerbaijani snipers on Thursday on Armenia-Azerbaijan border in  Ararat-Nakhchivan section. The Defense Ministry said Andranik Yegoyan  (1988) and Boris Gasparyan (1992) were killed. According to the  non-official data, the number of the killed soldiers reached five. 
Personal representative of the OSCE chairman-in-office, Andrzej  Kasprzyk, was invited to Armenia's Defence Ministry because of the  incident. 

To note, ArmInfo received a signal yesterday from Eraskh village that  residents of the border villages were being evacuated. But the  information was not proved in Armenia's Defence Ministry and in  Erashk village administration.
