Putin and Russian Security Council members discuss Karabakh and coronavirus
The current state of affairs in terms of combating the coronavirus pandemic in the Russian regions, as well as the situation around the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, were discussed by Russian President Vladimir Putin with permanent members of the Russian Security Council, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"The views on the situation around the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, as well as the efforts to resolve the conflict were exchanged," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
The Armenian armed forces committed a large-scale provocation, subjecting the positions of the Azerbaijani army to intensive shelling from large-caliber weapons, mortars, and artillery installations of various calibers in the front-line zone on Sept. 27 at 05:00 (Msk). The command of the Azerbaijani Army decided to launch a counter-offensive operation of Azerbaijani troops along the entire front to suppress the combat activity of the Armenian armed forces and ensure the safety of the civilian population. To date, Fizuli and Jabrayil districts, including the cities of Jabrayil and Fizuli, the city of Zangilan and part of Zangilan district, part of the Gubaldi region, the city of Gubadli, the city of Hadrut, and a number of villages in the Khojavend region, the villages of Sugovushan and Talish in the Terter region, as well as the strategically important Murovdag mountain were liberated.
