YEREVAN. – Zhoghovurd newspaper of Armenia writes: Turkey promises Syrian mercenaries several thousand [US] dollars, but pays 400 dollars which is lower than Turkey's minimum wage, and sends them to fight in the most dangerous areas for Azerbaijan. Journalist Anhar Kochneva notes this in a conversation with Zhoghovurd daily.
She is a Ukrainian journalist who was abducted by Islamists in Syria back in 2012, during the events taking place in the country, when, as a journalist, she was covering it and was able to present the situation in Syria.
"I know that Turkish President Erdogan is sending mercenaries from Idlib [Syria] to Azerbaijan. When the Syrian army completely liberates Idlib, all the criminals there will flee to Turkey, whereas Erdogan does not need them there; that is why he sent some of them to Libya and some—to Azerbaijan. The more they die there, the less will go to Turkey," she said.
Let us add that new data are emerging day by day about Syrian mercenaries’ participation in Azerbaijan in the war against Nagorno-Karabakh, but Turkey and Azerbaijan continue to deny it.
