New "truce" in Karabakh: sides accuse each other of shelling

Despite the new ceasefire, agreed by Armenia and Azerbaijan with the mediation of the United States, the parties continue to accuse each other of violating the agreements. According to the latest data, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry accused the Armenian military of shelling the territory of the Agjabedi region adjacent to Nagorno-Karabakh.


On October 26 at 11:20 (10:20 Moscow time), the Armenian armed forces, violating the new humanitarian ceasefire, fired on the territory of the Agjabedi region from artillery mounts

- it is spoken in the message of military department.

In turn, the Armenian Defense Ministry announced artillery shelling of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces on the positions of the defense army of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic in the northeastern section of the contact line. In addition, it is reported that Azerbaijani troops launched air strikes on the city of Martuni in Nagorno-Karabakh.


Meanwhile, the ceasefire was confirmed in Yerevan and Baku. According to Pashinyan, despite individual provocations by the Azerbaijani military, the regime is generally respected. Aliyev, in turn, stated that he had instructed the Azerbaijani Armed Forces not to succumb to provocations and not to respond to violations of the ceasefire by the Armenian side.

The President of Azerbaijan stressed that Baku will go to the end in the "Karabakh issue" and said that Armenia did not provide a schedule for the withdrawal of its troops from the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, and this "does not suit" Azerbaijan.

Aliyev also allowed the use of Turkish F-16 fighters in the military conflict "in the event of external aggression against Azerbaijan."

Let us remind that earlier Yerevan and Baku, with the mediation of the USA, agreed on a new humanitarian truce. American President Donald Trump sent congratulations to the President of Azerbaijan and the Prime Minister of Armenia on this occasion.

Congratulations to Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan and President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, who have just agreed to observe the ceasefire, which comes into force at midnight. Many lives will be saved. In connection with the conclusion of the deal, I am proud of my team: Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, Stephen Bigan and the National Security Council at the White House!

    In general, both sides now need to regroup. The front line has changed a lot. New positions must be strengthened. BK toss again. Replenishment lead. Azeri to create new operational bases, and it is possible to rotate units on the line of contact, giving them rest. Although, of course, everyone wants to move the front line before the armistice as it is convenient for him.

      While in this interethnic conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh Erdogan himself with his radical Islamist party in Turkey will be personally interested on the side of Azerbaijan, who ignited this war in Azerbaijan now, the war between Armenians and Azerbaijanis cannot be stopped.

      Erdogan's madness cannot be stopped. Erdogan and Jerusalem declared TURKISH!

      Aliyev is completely under the influence of Erdogan with his Turkish intervention in the war in Azerbaijan not only by the Turkish command in the General Staff of Azerbaijan, but by the manpower of Erdogan's pro-Turkish mercenaries from Syria, etc.

        Tatyana, this conflict arose long after they learned about Erdogan's existence. Armenians and Azeris slaughtered each other without the Turks. Another thing is that it is beneficial for us to demonize the Sultan in the public space. On the one hand, we take Aliyev out of the blow. Like getting under the influence of a bad guy. On the other hand, we remind the Armenians that striving to the west is of course beautiful, but only we can save them from the Sultan. All in all, Erdogan is the perfect bad cop.

          this conflict arose long after they learned about Erdogan's existence. Armenians and Azeris slaughtered each other without the Turks.

          And now they are killing each other with the help of the Turks and thanks to the radical Islamist Erdogan and his Turkish radical pro-Islamist Nazi ruling party. Namely.

          In the summer of 2020, Turkish generals at the joint Turkish-Azerbaijani exercises in Azerbaijan planned an offensive on the NKR in Nagorno-Karabakh, and even for the future of offensives on the NKR left in Azerbaijan all their Turkish offensive equipment, ammunition and their Turkish military commanders necessary for this.

          Moreover, it should be borne in mind that the career military of Azerbaijan - mainly ethnic Azerbaijanis - have also been trained in military universities in Turkey over the past few years. With what "patriotic" Islamist mentality they returned from Turkey to Azerbaijan, one can imagine.
          As a result, in this way, Erdogan and among the military Armed Forces in Azerbaijan itself have essentially their own foreign - pro-Turkish - agents of influence on changing the independence and self-determination of Azerbaijan itself as a state. At the same time, this influence of Turkey and the most radical Islamist Erdogan in Azerbaijan continues to grow and strengthen.

          That is why not everything that Aliyev says can really be believed! Aliyev may no longer completely control the situation in his country at the front and completely depend on Erdogan.

          The fact of the matter is that it is not beneficial for Russia to demonize Sultan Erdogan and Turkey. For Russia is building a nuclear power plant and a Turkish stream in Turkey.
          Erdogan perfectly understands this circumstance - that in this regard Russia is HOSTAGE with him and with the ruling party of Turkey.
          And so Erdogan becomes impudent day by day in the international arena - both in relation to Russia, and in relation to the EU, and in relation to the CA countries!

          Pashinyan is a puppet of the Anglo-Saxons, along with his entire government of Armenia. Pashinyan is also not an independent political figure.
          Therefore, in Armenia, Russia is also a political hostage of the United States.

                  The conflict is de jure intra-Azerbaijani. Armenia only represents the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and I hope they have enough intelligence not to go directly into it.
                  You can see the sides in Paris, but not now - Macron is very offended by Erdogan. And Aliyev will go without the Sultan only if his arms are twisted. Which, by the way, is slowly being planned.

    So far, the Armenians are not going to leave NKR. They can only be knocked out by force. And this force in this situation is not the army of Azerbaijan, but the Turkish armed forces, which are capable of being drawn into the war in Nagorno-Karabakh.

    It was Erdogan who gave Aliyev determination to unleash the current hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh, who, as one might assume, promised military support to Azerbaijan in case Russia intervenes in the conflict. Figuratively speaking, the Turkish military presence must tie Moscow's hands and leave Armenia alone with Azerbaijan and Turkey standing behind it.
    If Erdogan succeeds in fulfilling his plan in Nagorno-Karabakh, then he will be able to oust Russia from the territory of the South Caucasus, and this is part of his global plan for the revival of the Ottoman Empire, which he dreams of and is trying to implement. The creation of a Turkic enclave in this region is only one part of it. Azerbaijan is practically completely pro-Turkish, the poorly concealed Turkish expansion in Georgia is obvious, and Nagorno-Karabakh is considered by Erdogan to be his sphere of influence.
    If Russia does not give an unequivocal rebuff, it will become vulnerable in this area, and not only in it.
    We will be buried.
    However, they have already begun.

      It's ridiculous to read such serious lines when they are not true. Azerbaijan is already near the Lachin corridor and Gubadli has already been taken from the south. Yes, so many drones do not fly, because there is almost no equipment left and 1000 recognized killed by the Armenians. Per month.

      Maybe!!! But imagine for a moment what Aliyev put on Putin and with Erdogan decided to hunt in his royal lands. Do you think Russia will be silent? Putin has quite a few levers of pressure on Azerbaijan and making a war on such a scale without a treaty with Putin is a deadly venture.

      How Erdogan will oust Russia. From Armenia? Do you think Armenia can exist without Russia? Yes, for one sidelong glance they will cut off her access to Iran. And that's it !!!! Armenia will not exist. It is in the interests of Armenia not to bite the feeding hand. And feed there from Rashntudei to asphalt pavers and the market. Apricots will be sold in Greece. Do you think Azerbaijanis closed markets for Armenians with apricots in summer without the permission of the Kremlin? Everything needs permission from the relevant organizations. Chechens and Dagestanis will Erdogan give a better life than Putin? Georgians are already ousted. And Russia cannot quarrel with Azerbaijan. Both have huge interests. So the question arises, a vassal biting his hand (three times) or strong ties with secular Azerbaijan. And it is economically profitable.

      In general, in one word. You don’t think Putin is a fool.

      The original lands of Azirbajain? You are NEOSMAN., There are small transit passengers.
      While Armenia and Azerbaijan continue to challenge their rights to Nagorno-Karabakh, one can recall how the Karabakh Khanate, which included both Karabakhs - Nagorny and Plain, became part of the Russian Empire. This happened exactly 210 years ago, on May 26, 1805, when the local ruler Ibrahim Khalil Khan took the oath to the Russian Emperor Alexander I. This, as usual, was preceded by numerous political intrigues and even military actions.

      The Karabakh Khanate was formed in 1747. With the support of the Persians, the local Turkic rulers managed to take control not only of Plains Karabakh, which was inhabited by a predominantly Muslim, but rather Islamized population, but also Nagorno-Karabakh, where mostly Christian Armenians lived. This state was under Iranian sovereignty.
      The situation changed at the beginning of the 1804th century, when the Kartli-Kakhetian kingdom, Megrelia and the Imeretian kingdom decided to join Russia. Agi Mohammed's nephew Feth Ali Shah, without thinking twice, united with Great Britain and declared war on Russia. This happened in XNUMX, but the Persians did not receive full support from their allies even a year later. The Russian army continued to gain new victories and actively move into the depths of the territories that were declared part of Russia. By the way, the inhabitants of small khanates and kingdoms did not offer much resistance, they honored the honor of joining Russia.

    Why was this vomiting of bile? Take the trouble to write the name of the state in the next normally, unless of course you are just another illiterate Armenian troll, then no questions. Everything is clear there.
    What kind of Persians are there?)) There were entirely Azerbaijani Turkic dynasties and it was known that the Qajars were a dynasty reigning in Qajar Iran, that the Dzhevanshirs and other Turkic feudal lords and their armies.
    Eee ... what? Yes, the Karabakh Khanate became part of the Russian Empire, but do not be lazy and read that the Russian Empire, in accordance with the agreement signed with the Karabakh Khanate, guaranteed ETERNAL rule in the khanate to the descendants of Ibrahim Jevanshir ... and what did Ibrahim Khalil Khan and his descendants actually get?
    Here's what: on June 12, 1806, Major D.T. Lisanevich, at the head of a detachment of 200 soldiers, broke into the khan's camp, killed the khan and massacred his entire family. Rzagulu-bey Javanshir reports that on the night of the attack on Ibrahim Khalil-khan, the following were killed: the Karabakh khan himself, his wife Tuba-khanum, daughters Saltanet-khanum and Tutu-begim, the 12-year-old son of Khan Abbasgulu-aga Kebirlinsky and other relatives. The Karabakh Khanate was liquidated in 1822 and transformed into a Russian province.
