Public Transport in Artsakh to Halt Completely Amid Fuel Shortage


Public Transport in Artsakh to Halt Completely Amid Fuel Shortage

Effective from July 25, the operation of public transport across the entirety of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) will come to a complete standstill, according to an official statement released by the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Infrastructures of Artsakh.

In response to the ongoing fuel shortage triggered by Azerbaijan's blockade, the capital city of Artsakh, Stepanakert, has already witnessed the cessation of public transport services since July 18. While inter-district routes were initially maintained during this period, the meager fuel reserves have now been depleted.

The statement issued by the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Infrastructures of Artsakh reveals that the remaining fuel resources have been exhausted. Consequently, the decision has been made to completely halt the operation of public transport across the entire republic, starting July 25.


The fuel scarcity has posed severe challenges to the functioning of essential services, including public transportation, exacerbating the difficulties faced by the population. As the situation unfolds, the residents of Artsakh are grappling with the far-reaching consequences of the fuel crisis and the resulting disruption of daily life.

The decision to suspend public transport operations underscores the gravity of the situation, highlighting the urgent need for a resolution to the ongoing crisis. As the international community continues to monitor developments, the Ministry's statement serves as a poignant reminder of the pressing challenges faced by the people of Artsakh and the need for concerted efforts to address the underlying issues at hand.
