Azerbaijan has just shelled Stepanakert twice. Is this aimed at maintaining the humanitarian ceasefire? It seems that the perpetrators will keep on committing crimes, until they are punished.

Human rights ombudsman of the Republic of Artsakh Artak Beglaryan

Today the Staff of the Human Rights Ombudsman of the Republic of Artsakh got concrete information that the Azerbaijani subvversive group which entered Hadrut town on the morning killed 2 civilians at their home – the mother and her son with disability. We are making efforts to gather more information and will publish them tomorrow. Critically condemning the continuous severe attrocities of the Azerbaijani armed forces against the Artsakh population, I demand from the international community to give proper reaction to this cruel crime and to pursue punishing those criminals.

Violating its own commitment, Azerbaijan continued military operations on various fronts. The settlements of Syunik region were hit. The provocative actions of the Azerbaijani army are accompanied by political statements, which can’t be interpreted in a different way except that Azerbaijan violates the ceasefire agreement. We strongly condemn the steps taken by Azerbaijan, to break the ceasefire agreement.

President of the Republic of Artsakh Arayik Harutyunyan

Today during the fight against the enemy’s subversive forces that penetrated Hadrout, I became convinced once again that the fighting spirit of our boys is strong. Their peaceful and sober eyes express the confident mood of victory in the fight against the enemy bandits. By the way, I accidentally met Aroushan Badasyan, one of our legendary commanders of the First Artsakh War, who hurried to Artsakh from the United States barely learning of the war. We stand firm for our lands. This path is indivertible.

President of the Republic of Artsakh Arayik Harutyunyan

I have just come back from the city of Hadrut. As you know, the enemy, ignoring the agreement on a humanitarian ceasefire, launched a diversionary assault in the direction of the regional center. The situation is completely under the control of the Defense Army. And I’ll speak of the existent agreements and their violations during the briefing occurring tomorrow at 10 AM. I hope this time, there will not be new difficulties.

Azerbaijan once again proved that it is a rogue country that does not its obligations even for 5 minutes. Today’s treacherous attack persuasively proves that Azerbaijan is using negotiations exclusively as a screen for preparing military operations. In this very case, the international community can stop this rouge country only in one way- by recognizing the Artsakh Republic, which will provide the necessary legal mechanisms, to guarantee peace and security for both our Republic and the entire region.

Prior to the establishment of the humanitarian ceasefire, the Azerbaijani side untertook a subversive-intelligence infiltration attempt in the direction of Hadrut. Encirclement and destruction operations of the infiltrated group continue for already 3 hours. It is relatively calm in other parts of the front. Actions of the Azerbaijani side are apparently dictated to prove the statement made by the President of Azerbaijan yesterday regarding occupation of Hadrut right.

The units of the Defense Army are halting enemy attacks in the south. At the same time, the Azerbaijani armed forces are holding the city of Hadrut under fire. The statement of the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan that the Armenian side is firing in the direction of Tartar and Aghdam regions is yet another lie.
