“From September 19, the Republic of Azerbaijan launched a large-scale offensive along the line of contact with the Republic of Artsakh, along with massive artillery and air strikes.
The analysis of the Armed Forces’ actions in Azerbaijan shows that the task of dividing Artsakh and causing irreparable damage to its vitality is set. During two days of stubborn battles, the units of the Armed Forces of Artsakh heroically defended against the enemy, which was several times superior in workforce and military equipment, causing him the most significant losses.
Unfortunately, the Artsakh side also has losses and wounded. In some areas, the enemy managed to break into the military positions of the Defense Forces and take control of several heights and strategic road junctions.
The international community’s actions in stopping the war and resolving the problem need to be revised in the current situation.
Taking into account all this, the authorities of the Republic of Artsakh accept the proposal of the command of the Russian peacekeeping mission regarding the cessation of fire.”
