Russian companies have submitted 14 applications for participating in the restoration of the liberated Azerbaijani territories, Russian Ambassador to Baku Mikhail Bocharnikov said at a press conference on Wednesday.

The ambassador noted that the companies’ activities are mainly focused on the areas of agriculture, railway construction, power facilities, as well as other works.

“I cannot yet say how many of these applications will be accepted by the Azerbaijani side,” Bocharnikov added. 

In 2021, the representatives of Russian companies organized two large business missions to Azerbaijan. Economic cooperation, including activities in liberated Karabakh, was discussed at the business forums.
