Kremlin: Karabakh is Azerbaijan!
Press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov voiced Russia's support for the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan once again, answering the question about the status of Karabakh. Peskov recalled that Russia recognizes the Nagorno-Karabakh region as the territory of Azerbaijan in accordance with the UN Security Council’s relevant resolutions.
"The belonging of this territory has been determined upon the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council, which are quite old. In fact, there is not the main side, there are two sides, two conflicting sides - Armenia and Azerbaijan," he said while speaking about who the Russian peacekeepers in the Nagorno-Karabakh region are coordinating with.
"These are the sides that, together with the Russian side, signed the well-known declaration. The Russian military, as well as the Russian humanitarian mission, which consists not only of the military, are coordinating their actions with both Azerbaijanis and Armenians to fulfill the provisions of this declaration," the press secretary explained.
The Karabakh war ended on the night of November 9-10, 2020 with the victory of Azerbaijan. During the hostilities from September 27 to November 9, the Azerbaijani army liberated the Fizuli, Jebrail, Zangilan and Gubadli districts, parts of the Terter, Khojavend, Khojaly and Shusha districts, including the heart of Azerbaijani culture - the city of Shusha from the occupation forces of the Armenian Armed Forces. From November 10 to 30, the Armenian troops were withdrawn from the Aghdam, Kalbajar and Lachin regions. The territorial integrity of Azerbaijan was restored on December 1.
