Russia has reinforced its Armenian military base by deploying attack and transport helicopters.

Russia has deployed a total of seven helicopters MI-24 and Mi-8 at the base near the capital city of Yerevan, and one more batch would be delivered to the base before the year end, the Russian defense ministry was quoted as saying by RIA news agency Tuesday.

The air base was set up in 1995 and since 1998 Russia has been stationing there fighter jets MIG-29.

Russia also has a military base in Gyumri, the second largest city in Armenia in the northwestern part of the country close to the Armenian-Turkish border.
