In the unrecognized Republic of Artsakh, which occupies the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, they say about regular artillery and rocket attacks on settlements, including the capital of NKR - Stepanakert.
Yerevan announced full mobilization, and Baku - partial. At the same time, the Armenian side has repeatedly declared Turkey's active military support to Azerbaijan.
