The Russian aircraft transporting the POWs landed in Armenia’s Erebuni airport.
Sputnik Armenia reports that the names of the captives are Arthur Nalbandyan and Aramayis Torozyan.
In exchange for the two POWs, Yerevan handed to Baku Jamil Babayev, an Azerbaijani soldier detained in Karabakh (Artsakh) after crossing the border illegally on August 25 and entering a house in Martakert region.
