Late last week the subject of the Stepanakert airport unexpectedly again appeared in the news as information came from Karabakh that the first Yerevan-Stepanakert commercial flight could be operated within days (the fourth time such a prediction has surfaced).

In response, the Azerbaijani government ordered the country’s air defense forces to shoot down civilian aircraft “illegally entering its airspace”.

Armenian Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan, in turn, said that Armenia’s anti-aircraft defense will ensure the safety of civilian aircraft flying from Yerevan to Stepanakert.
