Azerbaijan violated ceasefire in Martakert, Askeran, Martuni and Shushi regions of Artsakh

The delicate peace in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) was once again disrupted as the Azerbaijani armed forces violated the ceasefire across several regions. The incidents unfolded on Monday, August 21, between 5:50 am and 6:30 am, with small arms being used in the regions of Martakert, Askeran, Martuni, and Shushi. This unsettling development has once again drawn attention to the fragility of the situation in the aftermath of the recent war and the ongoing blockade.


The Artsakh Defense Army confirmed these violations of the ceasefire, marking yet another episode of tension in the region. Thankfully, there were no reported casualties on the Armenian side, highlighting the importance of vigilance and preparedness in preventing potential harm.


The ceaseless vigilance required to maintain peace in the region was further underscored by these incidents. The Armenian side reported the violations to the command of the Russian peacekeeping contingent stationed in Nagorno-Karabakh. The role of the Russian peacekeepers in maintaining stability and mediating between citizens of Artsakh and Azerbaijan remains crucial in this volatile period.
