President of the Republic of Artsakh Arayik Harutyunyan

Today I visited the regional center of Askeran and discussed with the regional leadership the participation of civilian militias in hostilities. The head of the district administration reported that the population has a high awareness of their responsibility, and the work on the formation of volunteer units is being carried out properly. Following the example of Askeran, the process of creating civilian militia units is currently underway in all regions of the Republic. In the coming hours and days, the Defense Army will be replenished with our citizens, who have a wealth of experience and knowledge of war and professional military service, whose participation, I am sure, will significantly contribute to the increase in the effectiveness of our troops’ actions on the battlefield.

The war continues to this day, accompanied by widespread violations of International humanitarian rights by Azerbaijani side. To cover up its war crimes and prepare ground for new attacks on the civilian population the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan is resorting to propaganda of misinformation, accusing not only the military-political leadership of Artsakh, but also the Armenian authorities of imaginary actions. The people of Artsakh are determined to defend the security of their homeland, their people by using all their potential, as well as to hold the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan accountable for their war crimes and policy of turning our region into a hotbed of international terrorism.

Azerbaijan keeps on grossly violating the humanitarian ceasefire and has started large-scale military operations along the entire frontline since early morning. Peaceful settlements are also being shelled. Together with the army subdivisions several thousand hired terrorists are taking part in active military operations from the Azerbaijani side. The Defense Army is fighting hard, trying to stop the enemy’s attacks. Every effort must be made to cause great losses to the enemy, armed to teeth, and ensure victory in this patriotic war.

The information about keeping Aghjabed area under fire is also false. The Armenian side complies with the humanitarian ceasefire and is halting the offensive operations of Azerbaijan launched in violation of the ceasefire.

Spokesperson of the RA Ministry of Defense Shushan Stepanyan

We completely deny the accusation of the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan against Armenia for firing in the direction of Tartar region. With this absolutely false information, the Azerbaijani side is preparing ground for aggressive actions against peaceful settlements.

Spokesperson of the RA Ministry of Defense Shushan Stepanyan

During the night the relatively stable tension in the Artsakh-Azerbaijani conflict zone remained unchanged. In the morning, the enemy resumed operations supported by active artillery fire in the southern, northern, northeastern and eastern directions. The enemy is particularly active in the north-eastern part of the front line. The units of the Defense Army take adequate actions in all directions to silence the enemy’s fire and thwart the latter’s plans, keeping the operative-tactical situation under control.
