The Russian Ministry of Defense announced that the Azerbaijani forces withdrew from the village of Parukh in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), where they had invaded in the previous days, even expelling the residents.
The village is now under the control of Russian peacekeepers and the Azeris have withdrawn near the border with Azerbaijan but remain inside Artsakh. The ministry, however, states that negotiations for a full withdrawal continue.
Russia on Saturday condemned the violation of the borders of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) and the agreement signed after the 2020 war, but Baku denied the allegations.
The Russian Defense Ministry has accused Azerbaijan of violating the tripartite agreement of November 9, 2020, and called on Azerbaijani forces to withdraw to their original positions.
He further added that “the command of the Russian peacekeeping corps is taking steps to resolve the situation and return the troops to their original position.”
