The situation has significantly changed towards the increase of Azerbaijan’s military potential over the last few years, ex-Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Lieutenant-General Igor Romanenko said while commenting on Azerbaijan’s defence capability, Defence.az reported.


According to him, not only financial costs, but the weapons that Azerbaijan purchased and supplied its Armed Forces should also be taken into consideration.

“I believe that the April fights that took place in 2016 in Karabakh didn’t only affirm the increasing potential of Azerbaijan, but also demonstrated its realization during all this period. The framework of Azerbaijan’s armament has expanded and I think that Azerbaijan’s military potential has significantly increased,” said Romanenko.

Speaking about the prospects of the settlement of the Karabakh conflict, Romanenko noted that he would like to believe that the possibility of peaceful settlement of the conflict is still available.

“As always, it is necessary to have a strong defence sector of Azerbaijan, which would support its leadership in resolving this issue. I think a military way to resolve the conflict should not be excluded. Therefore, in both cases, it is necessary to speak about preparedness of the Armed Forces, which is successfully carried out by Azerbaijan,” stressed the Ukrainian general.
