Yerevan [Armenia], December 6 (ANI/Sputnik): More than 210 requests into the whereabouts of missing Armenian soldiers have been received by a hotline run by the Russian peacekeeping contingent in Nagorno-Karabakh over the past week, the Russian Ministry of Defense said on Sunday.
"During the hotline's operation, 214 requests concerning missing Armenian servicemen were received from November 30 to December 4," the ministry said.
Russian experts passed on the information of 186 missing Armenian troops to search groups operating under the guidance of the Russian peacekeeping contingent in Nagorno-Karabakh, the ministry said.

Additionally, 45 people received psychological assistance over the phone and nine people left messages of gratitude for the Russian peacekeepers' efforts in searching for missing persons.
