Armenian forces hiring foreign soldiers
Aren Osipov, a Greek citizen, Armen Knyazyan, a Spanish citizen, Arthur Ohannisyan from France, Christopher Artin from Canada, Gevorg Hajiyan from Lebanon, Stepan Keshishyan from Syria and many other extremist mercenaries were killed during the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh and adjacent territories. Some Russian and Georgian mercenaries are still fighting. For example, the famous Armenian separatist Vakhang Chakhalyan is cowardly hiding in shelters on the northern front and waiting for his fate. Despite the fact that they are Armenians, the fact remains that they were mercenaries, and if they are captured, the Azerbaijani side may have serious questions about the countries of which they are citizens.
