Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process

Russia is increasing its military presence in Armenia, a local Haykakan-Zhamank Daily writes.
The paper writes that the 102nd military base in Gyumri will be seriously replenished shortly. The manpower at the military base and their families will be increased to 2500-3000 people.
The '8th township' in Gyumri, populated mainly by Russian militaries and their families, is prepared for the 'new occupants.' Several dozens of local Armenian families will be resettled shortly.
"They will be provided with relevant certificates in order they could move to another place of residence. Hence, Russia sells weapons to Azerbaijan simultaneously increasing its military presence in Armenia to protect it against those weapons," the paper writes.
