Russian Peacekeepers Assist Armenians in Evacuation from Artsakh Amid Deadly Attacks by Azerbaijan

In response to Azerbaijan's unprovoked military attacks on Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), the Russian Ministry of Defense has reported that Russian peacekeepers have taken swift action to organize the evacuation of civilians from the most hostile areas in Artsakh.


Over the course of the day, the Russian peacekeeping force successfully evacuated 469 individuals, a group that notably included 185 children. These evacuees were brought to safety from areas of heightened danger.


It is essential to emphasize that the Azerbaijani military's objective in these deadly attacks is to force Armenians to evacuate from their ancestral homeland, further intensifying the gravity of the situation.


The command of the Russian peacekeeping force has issued a strong call to the conflicting parties, urging an immediate cessation of hostilities. They have also implored both sides to take decisive measures to de-escalate the situation and to continue diplomatic negotiations in order to secure a peaceful resolution to the crisis.


Earlier in the day, Russia's Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, disclosed that Russia had established communication with Azerbaijan concerning its military operations in Nagorno-Karabakh. Zakharova noted that "Baku is providing Moscow information on the operation.”


As of now there are reports of 25 fatalities and 128 injuries, according to Artsakh's Ministry of Health. Among the injured, preliminary reports indicate that 15 are civilians who are currently receiving medical treatment at the local hospital. At the Arevik children’s medical center, 12 children are currently receiving urgent medical care, with three of them in serious condition.
