As many as 2,783 servicemen of the Azerbaijani Armed Force were martyred during the Patriotic War. Work is underway to identify 103 servicemen among them using DNA analysis. More than 100 of our servicemen are considered as missing. Necessary activities are being taken to find them and inform their families.
