Azerbaijan again cuts Karabakh gas supply

The company urged residents on Wednesday, March 22 morning to follow all safety rules.

Azerbaijan has been regularly cutting off natural gas supplies to Nagorno-Karabakh amid freezing temperatures and severe food shortages.

Since December 12, the sole road connecting Nagorno Karabakh to Armenia - the Lachin Corridor - has been blocked by self-described Azerbaijani environmentalists.
