Russian peacekeepers help 32 more refugees return to Karabakh

PanARMENIAN.Net - 32 more refugees have returned to their homes in Nagorno-Karabakh, their safety was ensured by Russian peacekeepers, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Sunday, February 7.

The Karabakh residents were delivered from Yerevan to Stepanakert by buses, which were accompanied by patrol vehicles of the Russian peacekeeping contingent and the military police, the Ministry said.

Since mid-November, the Russian peacekeepers have helped 52,310 refugees return to their places of permanent residence, although Karabakh authorities said in January that more than 95,000 people had gone back already, some of them on their own.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the peacekeepers are conducting round-the-clock monitoring of the situation and the ceasefire from their observation posts across Karabakh.
