The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has described as a provocation media reports alleging that Ukraine sold multiple rocket launchers and mobile missile systems to Armenia in 2011.

"These online claims of an unidentified origin are a provocation," Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleksandr Dykusarov said at a press briefing on Tuesday.

Ukraine has been strictly observing the international obligations assumed before the UN and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, and the national legislation, as well, he said.

Given Ukraine's upcoming presidency of the OSCE, Kyiv will continue making maximum effort to strengthen security and stability in the region, Dikusarov said.

The Ukrainian Embassy in Azerbaijan earlier denied media reports claiming that Ukraine sold multiple rocket launchers and mobile missile systems to Armenia in 2011.
