"With the mediation and the participation of the Russian peacekeeping forces stationed in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Azerbaijani Republic, the bodies of several servicemen killed on the battlefield around the town of Shusha were collected. As part of this humanitarian action, the bodies of servicemen of the Armenian armed forces were gathered and transferred to the Armenian side," the press office said in a statement.
"Also, the bodies of six servicemen of the Azerbaijani army killed there during the battles were received as part of this action," the statement says.
On November 9, Armenia and Azerbaijan made a deal on ceasing the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. Russia acts as guarantor of safety; it deployed the peacekeeping contingent and armored vehicles in the disputed region to avoid further military action - for at least five years.
Later, president of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has declared victory in the military conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.
