During the fighting in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the Azerbaijani army destroyed military equipment of the Armenian military worth $ 2,7 billion. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev stated this in an interview with the German edition of ARD.
According to Aliyev, the cost of the destroyed equipment of the Armenian army in the conflict zone in Karabakh has been calculated in Baku. According to preliminary estimates, the minimum damage is $ 2,7 billion.
We made a minimal initial tally of what we destroyed. By the way, I didn't reveal everything that we destroyed. The cost of military equipment and ammunition, which we destroyed and took as war booty, is $ 2,7 billion. Where did they get this money to acquire such weapon? Armenia is a poor country. Its budget is less than $ 2 billion. Its external debt is $ 8 billion.
