“Azerbaijan’s Armed Forces have entered the zone of responsibility of the Russian peacekeeping mission in Nagorno-Karabakh and launched four strikes on the Nagorno-Karabakh armed formations, using a Bayraktar TB2 drone, near the village of Parukh.”
The office of the Russian peacekeeping contingent stationed in Artsakh today also called on Azerbaijan to withdraw its troops from these areas.
