Azerbaijan has opened new military units. The new units were commissioned by the Defence Ministry and the State Border Service.
The Defence Ministry opened a new modular-type military unit supplied with modern equipment to organize service and combat activities and provide personnel with proper living conditions, the ministry reported on June 23.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Army Corps Commander Mais Barkhudarov said that the modular-type structures that will meet the essential needs of the military personnel include an arms room, a hostel, a dining room, a kitchen, a bath, and sanitary facilities.
"At the same time, office premises for officers and warrant officers, a first-aid post, food and clothing warehouses were created in the complex. Electric generators, a boiler room installed there, and appropriate conditions for organizing and conducting combat duty and military service at a high level were provided," the ministry said.
Thanks to the purchased new mobile equipment, the personnel will be uninterruptedly provided with hot meals and household services, the statement noted.
Corresponding work on the construction of new roads, the supply of power lines, water and gas pipelines to military units, positions and posts deployed on the liberated territories, the organization of combat duty and service of troops, as well as the construction of new modular-type military units continue as planned.
On June 24, the State Border Service reported on its website that a new military unit began service and combat activities on the territory of liberated Gubadli region on the border with Armenia.
Speaking at a ceremony organized on this occasion, State Border Service Head Elchin Guliyev congratulated the personnel on the commencement of service and combat activities of the next military unit of the State Border Service in the territories liberated from occupation.
After the ceremony, the work on increasing further the combat readiness of military units and subunits and ensuring the safety of personnel was checked.
A meeting was held with border guards serving at border combat points, and the servicemen's service, combat and living conditions were examined.
Steps to supply Azerbaijani army units stationed on the liberated territories, organize troops' service and improve the military personnel's social and living conditions are being taken under President Ilham Aliyev's order.
Azerbaijan has been opening military units in liberated regions to ensure the better reinforcement of its borders since the last year's war.
Azerbaijan and Armenia have failed to come to an agreement on the demarcation of their state border following the collapse of the Soviet Union. The tension over border delineation gained fresh momentum following the end of the Second Karabakh War in 2020.
