Artsakh denies Azerbaijan’s false reports on Armenian military supplies
The Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) Interior Ministry has rejected Azerbaijan’s false claims about shipments of Armenian military personnel and weapons to Artsakh. Below is the full statement issued by the ministry on Tuesday.
“Yesterday, on March 13, the Azerbaijani media spread another disinformation that servicemen and weapons were transported from Armenia to Artsakh accompanied by Russian peacekeeping troops, attaching a video of a small convoy of vehicles.
In fact, in the video published by the Azerbaijani side, there are not military vehicles, but vehicles belonging to the State Emergency Service. The rescue workers, accompanied by Russian peacekeepers, convoyed the civilians with RA citizenship who remained in Artsakh as a result of the blockade to the Republic of Armenia along the mountain road bypassing Shushi.
Considering the mountainous and extremely heavy-going nature of the road, the rescue workers of Artsakh had to organize the transportation of citizens by trucks.
The Russian peacekeepers have performed their duties to ensure the safety of civilians, especially in the face of additional threats posed after the March 5 sabotage attack.”
