Ankara has shot down one of its fighter jets, according to Armenia. The pilot of the SU-25 died. Turkey, which supports Azerbaijan in the conflict over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, argues that these are unfounded allegations.

The worst fighting in years has caused at least 114 deaths on the Armenian side, according to the authorities. No casualties have been reported from Azerbaijan.

Fighting broke out again on Sunday after some 26 years of ceasefire in the region that has been disputed for decades. Officially Nagorno-Karabakh is Azerbaijani territory, but it is controlled by Armenia which claims to have the historical right to the region. Azerbaijan is close to the same.

Civilian deaths

According to the Armenian authorities, dozens of soldiers died, but mainly civilians were among the dead. In Azerbaijan, where civilians recently took to the streets in protests calling for war, no official number has been given.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov says all parties must stop violence. He mainly pointed to Turkey. That country is said to have sent mercenaries to support ally Azerbaijan, Armenia said.

Russia itself is part of a military alliance of former Soviet states, including Armenia, and has a military base there. Moscow has supplied weapons to both countries in the past.
