YEREVAN. – As of Wednesday, the number of missing servicemen and civilians is 275. The Investigative Committee of Armenia noted this in a statement.
"The information circulating in the press on June 16, 2021 on the number of servicemen whose location is unknown refers to the financial statements of monetary compensation given to the families of servicemen whose location is unknown as a result of hostilities, which does not reflect the number of persons whose location is unknown as of that day along the lines of the criminal proceedings," the committee added, in particular.
As reported earlier, third President Serzh Sargsyan has stated that the Insurance Foundation for Servicemen had reported to the government in April that the number of missing Armenians—as a result of the Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) war last fall—was 1,064.
