The security service of Ukraine (SBU) oversees the participation of Ukrainian nationalists in the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict on the side of Azerbaijan. This was at the briefing on 24 July, said the official representative of the people’s militia (NM) of the unrecognized Luhansk national Republic (LNR) Yakov Osadchiy. The recording of the briefing is available on YouTube.
According voiced Osadchiy, nationalist structures are recruited as Ukrainian citizens and former and current military APU, with military experience. The goal of recruitment is to send them to Azerbaijan to participate in the military conflict against Armenia.
The representative of the Hm LC reports that the work in this area led by the Deputy head of SBU Vladimir Gorbenko — this means that Ukraine at the state level intervenes in the Affairs of another country.
“In addition, we have information on the preparation of the nationalists provocative actions in Kharkov, Zaporozhye and Kiev against citizens of Armenian nationality,” — said Osadchiy.
July 15 it became known that the Ukrainian Embassy in Armenia poured the soup in protest — Ukraine supported the Azeri side of the conflict.
July 12, on the border of Armenia and Azerbaijan began fighting. The parties have accused each other of provocation. The next day, Ukraine’s foreign Ministry expressed “deep concern” the developments.

Between Yerevan and Baku is a longstanding dispute over Nagorno-Karabakh. In 1991, the region predominantly populated by Armenians, declared independence from Azerbaijan, who tried to regain his strength. Three years later the parties with the mediation of Russia signed a Protocol on ceasefire, but hostilities resume.
