More than a half of the border guards of the Federal Security Service of the Russia in Armenia are Armenian citizens.
As the chief of Artashat border detachment Colonel Yuri Urvanov told Armenian News-NEWS.am, at least 60% of the citizens of the Republic of Armenia are part of his squad.
"Therefore, the detachment should rather be considered as international one. This is an important factor. We all defend the Armenian border as our own," Yuri Urvanov emphasized.
