Russia's MoD finds four violations of ceasefire regime in Nagorno-Karabakh

During the past 24 hours, peacemakers recorded four ceasefire violations by the Azerbaijani party in Nagorno-Karabakh, the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) has informed.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on August 3, Azerbaijan announced a "Retribution" operation in Nagorno-Karabakh in response to the murder of an Azerbaijani serviceman. The MoD also reported that the Azerbaijani Army had captured a number of dominant heights. Baku demanded an immediate removal of Armenian militaries from Nagorno-Karabakh and threatened "even more destructive countermeasures" in case of provocations on the contact line. The authorities of Nagorno-Karabakh called for the world community to respond to Baku's actions.

On August 4, the official Baku reacted to the statement of the Armenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), which had accused Azerbaijan of violating the trilateral ceasefire agreement. The reason for the aggravation of the situation was the failure of the Armenian party to fulfil the agreement's provision of withdrawal of troops, the Azerbaijani MFA has stated.

Over the past 24 hours, four violations of the ceasefire regime by the Azerbaijan Armed Forces were recorded in the responsibility zone of Russian peacemakers, the Russian MoD has reported on its website tonight.

The situation escalated in the areas of the Sarybaba and Buzdukh heights, as well as in the Mardakert District, the MoD has specified, adding that two Karabakh soldiers were killed and 14 others wounded.
