Fighting broke out earlier Monday between Armenia and Azerbaijan on the border between the two states near the village of Yeraskh in the Ararat region.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan announced that Armenia opened fire on the Azerbaijani positions, but Armenia accuses Azerbaijan of misinformation on the incident in Yeraskh.

It is recalled that Russia, which mediated the end of the war between the two countries in the fall of 2020, is supposed to guarantee the security of Armenia and the maintenance of the ceasefire. Nevertheless, fighting continues on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, with Baku forces regularly violating the ceasefire.
