Russia: No ceasefire violation registered in Karabakh

PanARMENIAN.Net - No violations were registered in the zone of responsibility of the Russian peacekeeping contingent in the past day, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday, October 5.

“At thirty observation posts, Russian peacekeepers are monitoring the situation around the clock and ensuring compliance with the ceasefire,” the statement reads.

Russian peacekeeping units escorted seven columns of the Azerbaijani armed forces through Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as accompanied Armenian pilgrims to the Monasteries of Amaras and gandzasar, both of which are situated to the new contact line.

Russian peacekeepers were deployed in Karabakh immediately after Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Russian and Azerbaijani Presidents Vladimir Putin and Ilham Aliyev on November 9, 2020 signed a statement to end the war in Karabakh after almost 45 days. Under the deal, the Armenian side returned all the seven regions surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh, having lost a part of Karabakh itself in hostilities.
