Putin: it is necessary to stop hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh

On Sunday, Russian President Vladimir Putin held a telephone conversation with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on the sharp aggravation of the situation in the Karabakh conflict zone . The conversation took place at the initiative of the Armenian side, the Kremlin said.

“The Russian side has expressed serious concern about the resumption of large-scale armed clashes. It was noted that now it is important to take all the necessary efforts to prevent further escalation of the confrontation, and most importantly, it is necessary to stop hostilities, “the press service of the Russian president said.

On the morning of September 27, Armenia and Azerbaijan resumed hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh, mutually accusing each other of shelling border areas and provoking violence. Martial law has been introduced in both countries. In Armenia and the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, a general mobilization was also announced.

During the day, according to the Armenian side, 16 soldiers of the Karabakh defense army were killed and more than a hundred were injured. It was also reported about two dead and more than 30 wounded among civilians as a result of shelling from Azerbaijan. In turn, Baku reported the death of five and the injury of 19 civilians.

Many foreign countries and international organizations have called for an end to the conflict. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev held talks on Sunday with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who supported Baku’s side in the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

  • Selling Armenia weapons is the best way to avoid conflict, in the world of Muscovy.

    • Russia has almost total control of Armenia. It has an unswervingly loyal regime and a military base inside Armenia that prevents investment from the outside world. Should any leader get ideas above his station, the troops operating inside will simply come out of their bases and do a Crimea.
      The Azeris on the other hand are much richer, more uppity and troublesome to the putinazis, so Armenia functions as a junkyard dog for putler, just as Iran does. It works very well for the Russians to keep these two at each other’s throats and let it flare up every so often.
      The danger is more to Georgia which shares a border with both.
