On Dec. 8, 1991, Agarunov and his driver, Agababa Huseynov, managed to disable nine Armenian tanks and two armored trucks. During another skirmish, Agarunov managed to disable two tanks by a method called the “Jewish sandwich” by his comrades.
He was wanted by the Armenians, who allegedly offered 5 million rublуs to catch him.
In 1992, he voluntarily served in the Karabakh war; on May 8 of that year, he was killed by a sniper’s bullet.
He won awards from his country; a school in Baku is named after him; and in 2017, a memorial plaque was erected in front of his home.
