Armenian Defense Ministry denies reports of Azeri soldiers entering Sotk gold mine

The Armenian Defense Ministry denies media reports alleging Azerbaijani troops entered the area of the Sotk gold mine.

"Reports of various media outlets that Azerbaijani soldiers allegedly broke into the Sotk gold mine and demanded that employees vacate the area do not correspond to reality," the Defense Ministry said in a statement published by the Armenian Unified Infocenter.

In the meantime, more videos emerging on social media show the opposite of what is claimed by the ministry.
