In the case of war in Nagorno-Karabakh, Cossacks in Azerbaijan can provide the Azerbaijani Armed Forces a regiment of 500 men.

This was stated by chieftain of the Union of Cossacks of Azerbaijan, General Victor Mereshkin.

"Also, we can receive help from the Don Cossacks," he told a press conference today.

"The Cossacks of Azerbaijan since the 90's have been protecting their homeland. We have a proverb, 'where you were born, there you will serve'. But currently the settlement of the conflict is being negotiated, and we hope that it will be resolved peacefully," said Mereshkin.

He also stressed that the Cossacks of Azerbaijan will always respect the territorial integrity and sovereignty of our country.
