The Armenian Defense Ministry reported that the Azerbaijani army fired on the border settlements in the southeast of the country during the night.. The attacks targeted both military and civilian targets. They were killed and wounded after the shooting. At least 49 soldiers were killed.
The scale and nature of the attacks were unprecedented, believes Arkadiusz Legic, an analyst for the Caucasus and Central Asia at the Polish Institute of International Affairs. The expert confirms that the targets were not in the disputed area Nagorno-Karabakh.
Azerbaijan claims that the cause of the fighting was a large-scale sabotage attempt by Armenia. The saboteurs were mining the Azerbaijani army’s supply lines. He defines the invasion manifesto as “ridiculous.”
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to act and described Azerbaijan’s behavior as unacceptable. Earlier, he spoke with French President Emmanuel Macron and US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
According to the treaty establishing the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), an attack on Armenia is equivalent to an attack on other participants: Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
Yerevan said on Tuesday morning that Armenia and Russia had agreed on “joint steps to stabilize the situation”.
