...and on the BBC this:

Russia has a military base in Armenia, but also has strong ties to Azerbaijan.

The downing happened close to Nakhchivan, which is not near the current clashes in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Azerbaijan's foreign ministry said the helicopter had been flying at a low altitude during hours of darkness.
A "Manpads" shoulder-launched missile brought it down, the report said.

"Helicopters of the Russian air force had not been previously sighted in the area," the ministry said.
