Former Armenia MFA Spokesperson Shares Video of Russian Peacekeepers' Withdrawal from Artsakh


Former Armenia MFA Spokesperson Shares Video of Russian Peacekeepers' Withdrawal from Nagorno-Karaba

Anna Naghdalyan, the former spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of Armenia, has sparked controversy by sharing a video allegedly depicting the withdrawal of Russian peacekeepers from Nagorno-Karabakh. In a statement accompanying the video, Naghdalyan expressed concerns about the situation, accusing Azerbaijan of ethnic cleansing against the indigenous Armenian population in the region.


The video, shared on social media platforms, has raised questions and concerns within the international community. Naghdalyan's comment on the video suggested that the withdrawal of Russia's peacekeeping contingent followed a campaign of ethnic cleansing by Azerbaijan.


Naghdalyan's statement was met with a range of reactions, with some expressing outrage and others calling for a thorough investigation into the claims made. The situation has added fuel to the already complex and sensitive issue of ethnic tensions in the region, following the 2020 Artsakh War between Armenia and Azerbaijan.


The video and Naghdalyan's remarks have not only reignited tensions but have also put a spotlight on the challenges faced by peacekeeping missions in conflict zones. Russian peacekeepers had been deployed to Nagorno-Karabakh following the ceasefire agreement in November 2020, aiming to maintain stability and security in the region.


The Armenian government, as well as international organizations, are expected to respond to these claims promptly, seeking accurate information to assess the situation. Meanwhile, the public awaits official statements and clarifications from relevant authorities to understand the context and implications of the video shared by Naghdalyan.
