Vladimir Putin explained Russia's position on Nagorno-Karabakh

Vladimir Putin explained Russia's position on Nagorno-Karabakh and named the reasons for the escalation of the conflict, answering a relevant question at a press conference.


According to the Russian President, the cause of the military conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh was the accumulated tension between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the years, the situation got out of control. Putin noted that outside interference was unlikely to be the cause of the conflict.

Why did it happen now? The situation got out of control, this tension lasted for many years. I do not think what happened in connection with any outside interference. Friction, skirmishes and minor skirmishes arose many times. In the end, it all turned into a conflict.

- he added.

Moscow's position on this conflict was the only one - this is a settlement without bloodshed. The parties had to come to an agreement and stop hostilities. The main result of the agreement reached was a ceasefire, the rest of the issues are already secondary.

At the same time, the Russian leader stressed that the status of Karabakh, established by the trilateral agreement, should remain unchanged, Russia will adhere to the position of the achieved status quo, but with obligatory communication between Nagorno Karabakh and Armenia through the Lachin corridor.

We have always, for many years, I will now repeat our position, proceeded from the premise that Azerbaijan should be returned to the seven held areas around Nagorno-Karabakh. The status of Nagorno-Karabakh itself should remain unchanged, that is, it should be transferred to the future, the status quo in Nagorno-Karabakh should be fixed, but with the obligatory creation of an opportunity for communication between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia

- Putin explained.

Commenting on the violation of the ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh, the Russian president said he hoped this would be the only incident. He did not rule out an increase in the Russian peacekeeping contingent in Nagorno-Karabakh, but stressed that this will happen in coordination with both sides of the conflict.

    Now all this will suit both sides of the conflict. Everyone wants more ...

      Putin noted that outside interference is unlikely to be the cause of the conflict.

      Speaking about his doubts about the possibility of external intervention in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Putin on the part of Russia in the policy of international relations simply diplomatically bypassed the "sharp corners" between Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey and the United States - and nothing more.
      In fact, everything is much more serious!

    The pimple matured, turned into a boil, and finally burst out. Maybe they will calm down now.

      There is nothing wrong with a breakthrough of a boil. Healing...
      If only the boil goes into a carbuncle, and then into a phlegmon, then a surgeon is really needed.
      The same is the case with NK. It seems to me that it will not end with a single boil.
      Even though the surgeon is already in place ...

      The pimple was at 87 in Chanlibel, at 88 in Sumgait it was already gangrene and only at 94 was it possible to stop it, as it turned out not always.

    And what are the Kremlin and Putin personally doing to make Azerbaijan give Russia the GUILTY in the INTENTIONAL destruction of our military helicopter, and, as a consequence, in the death of its crew? When will Azerbaijan stop leading Russia by the nose? How much time has passed, and things are still there? ??

      Why should Azerbaijan give up its citizens? Does Russia also have to give its citizens to Ukraine on demand? fool
      Azerbaijan must pay compensation to Russia and establish the degree of vein of its own citizens according to its own laws. Do not demand from others what you yourself will not do!

        Horon - they committed a crime, possibly deliberately shooting down our helicopter! Russia, or rather, the authorities repeatedly gave or tried to give the militias to the Ukrainian army, which has been written on this site many times! In short, our people were killed, the authorities wiped out, and quietly let everything go on the brakes! I will not be punished by your minuses! And how everyone jumped happily, they say, Aliyev admitted that Azerbaijan shot down our helicopter, now the guilty will be found! We will never wait for the punishment of the real perpetrators of that crime! !!

          Did the militias who were handed over have Russian citizenship or Ukrainian?
          Not a single self-respecting state gives its guilty citizens to another state. Any self-respecting state retains the right to punish its citizens! The fact that this is news to you is bad, but even worse that raising the topic of punishment of citizens of a foreign state in our country, you simply speculate on this, collecting the approval of the same legally illiterate people who do not think about the consequences. The crime was committed on the territory of another state, by people possibly in public service. Are you now thinking with your head about the precedent you are seeking? After all, using a similar right, Ukraine can already demand the extradition of border guards who stopped Ukrainian boats in the Kerch Strait! Russia can demand the extradition of foreign citizens only if the crime was committed on its territory, only one country allows itself to demand the extradition of citizens of foreign countries when they commit a crime outside its territory, and this is not Russia, and in such cases you will here amicably condemn such behavior, but you yourself want to become like them.

          sadly, but you are right. The truth is bitter, but better than an unctuous voice with constant promises. Gotta get used to

    The indexation of pensions for working peesioners, according to the bayun's cat, will be when the money is brought into the budget for this business. Taking into account the latest trends and habits of the Kremlin, it can be called that indexation will not be soon or there is no money, but you are plowing, and given that working pensioners have difficulties in receiving previously earned pensions, then in general, why should they continue to work coffins for the sake of the oligarch's uncle ???

    those. Karabakh is the territory of Azerbaijan. But how long Baku will wait is a matter of time.
