The Office of the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) in Armenia is in contact with the families of Armenian servicemen who appeared in the Azerbaijani captivity as a result of the latest attack of Azerbaijan on Armenia, ICRC Yerevan Communication and Prevention Program Manager Zara Amatuni told Armenpress.

When there is information, we will be able to confirm that”, she said.
