With the mediation of Sergei Shoigu, Azerbaijan handed over the bodies of dead soldiers to Armenia

56

The bodies of her dead soldiers were handed over to the Armenian side, as well as two elderly citizens of Armenia. The transfer process is completed today.


This was announced at a briefing in Terter by the aide of the Azerbaijani President Hikmet Hajiyev.

The official praised the mediation in this case of the Russian Federation and its Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu:

We highly appreciate the efforts of the Russian Ministry of Defense and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in this process. As a result of Russia's support for this humanitarian initiative, the Armenian side agreed to open a humanitarian corridor in Gazakh-Tovuz direction and accept the bodies of its soldiers.

In total, 30 bodies of dead soldiers and officers of the Armed Forces of Armenia were transferred.

At the same time, Hajiyev claims that initially the Armenian side refused to accept the bodies of the killed military personnel. The Armenian side itself has not yet commented on these statements and the process of transferring the bodies of the dead servicemen.

The intensification of hostilities between Azerbaijan and Armenia began on September 27. The parties accuse each other of unleashing the conflict. At the same time, both Yerevan and Baku declare that the enemy targeted their settlements and civilian infrastructure. At the same time, the Azerbaijani army continues to advance in the conflict zone.

    It would be better if there was no conflict at all through the mediation of Shoigu .. and the bodies of the dead would have been handed over without Shoigu.

      There would not have been a conflict if it were not for Pashinyan's provocative behavior and openly hostile statements like "Karabakh is Armenia and that's it." Before him, other Armenian leaders behaved more restrainedly, trying not to bring the situation to a boiling point.

That is, Azerbaijan did not prepare for this war in advance, etc.? Here Pashinyan blurted out a couple of times that it was not necessary and went, otherwise there would be no war ...

              Not quite.
              The initial problem is the complete absence of movement in the negotiation process on the return of Karabakh and adjacent territories to Azerbaijan.
              And also regular aggravations on the line of contact. Let me remind you that the last time happened this summer, then the conflict was extinguished.

                  I'm not sure what exactly Azerbaijan is to blame in this case.
                  The moment for the return of Karabakh is now too unfortunate. The main ally, Turkey, is under pressure. The season, again, is not the same, late autumn is preferable.

                  The only thing can be blamed for that. that patience has run out. With a high probability, the usual wheel of mutual dirty tricks and shelling has spun again. And Baku at one of the moments went to aggravation

                    Greetings Lopatov, besides the above you, one of the reasons was the July aggravation, when Armenian units attacked the height in Tovuz from the territory of Armenia. There, a general from the Azerbaijani side died, one of those who, as they say, loved the soldier, the hero of the battles of 2016, Polad Hashimov, after In the April battles, together with Barkhudarov, they received general ranks and apartments from the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, both of them were still expelled from their hometown of Gubatly by their children. Both gave their apartments to the families of soldiers who died in those April battles, despite the fact that they themselves lived as tenants and did not have their own apartment. After the death of Gashimov, despite strict quarantine, a 200-strong rally was held in Baku with the slogans “Supreme Commander-in-Chief, give the order, let us liberate the country!” I think this also strengthened the President's opinion that it is time to put an end to these provocations.
                    2.By the way, of course, spring-summer is preferable, autumn and winter are a difficult time for war there ..
                    3. Major General Barkhudarov, commander of the 1st AK liberated his hometown and continues to smash the enemy.
                    Yours!

              Pashinyan, in his own words, put an end to the possibility of a peaceful settlement. If earlier Azerbaijan had positive expectations, then after the phrase "Karabakh is Armenia" Pashinyan simply blessed Aliyev.

          and you know he didn’t just say this, beforehand he allowed himself to offend the Azerbaijanis as a nation of cowards, and the sick Armenian generals openly threatened to seize Nakhichevan and Ganja. Even Pashinyan's wife, Anna, took a submachine gun in her hand and began to behave in an inappropriate way of women in the Caucasus, which caused indignation among the military and former veterans of the first Karabakh war. Everyone knows that if a man in the Caucasus cannot control his woman, then he is just a rag. All this was the last drop in the bowl where the arrogance and deceit of the opposite side for 30 years and blew up the situation

      To our great regret, non-combatants ALWAYS remain in the areas of hostilities, no matter how much you evacuate them, no matter how much you declare humanitarian pauses and the like. Here you can only fight for the percentage of those who left the war .. Or rather, both sides of the conflict must fight for this.

      And to our great regret, among those who remained, mostly the elderly. They said that even in Bamut one grandfather was found, although the village was completely empty

        Perhaps the bodies of some of the dead Azerbaijanis are in the hands of the Armenians - this is a war and no one argues with this, well, the fact is that in Azerbaijan there are bodies of dead Armenians at least by an order of magnitude higher than the official data of the Armenian Defense Ministry. The exchange is possible even through Georgia, as the Georgian officials talked about, but the fact is that Armenia, fed for 40 years of society about its greatness, is not ready to accept these bodies for one, even two or three times. And so the Azerbaijani side has always expressed its readiness to give these bodies, without any condition, about which we were all witnesses of today's step

    then after the phrase "Karabakh is Armenia" Pashinyan simply blessed Aliyev.

    But this is nothing more than rhetoric, he still did not take any practical measures, did not annex the territory of the NKR (and at the same time 7 regions) to Armenia, nor did he even recognize the independence of the NKR. That is, de jure, the negotiation process was not complicated by his rhetoric and was not interrupted.

    Azerbaijan will not stop until it returns the entire territory of the NKR under its control.

    Although right now is the most opportune moment to consolidate our military successes politically, if Aliyev is an independent politician, he can do it, he dictates the conditions and Armenia will agree to almost everything. It would be foolish to miss such a moment. I hope he will be able to deal with the instigators in the form of Erdogan and his "patriots"?
    Now is the time to recognize the independence of the NKR, possibly changing its borders to leave a connection with Armenia. Agree to the withdrawal of all Armenian formations from there and the deployment of peacekeeping forces.
