Why can't peacekeepers ensure a ceasefire in Karabakh?
Tarlan Eyvazov: “The main goal of the Armenians is to return Khadruda and Shusha and restore the borders of the former Nagorno-Karabakh Republic,” the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said in a statement. The fire was opened by illegal Armenian armed groups on the territory. Azerbaijan, where Russian peacekeepers are temporarily deployed ”. If for the last six months we have received information about the tension on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, now the Armenians are shooting at us from the territories of Azerbaijan, where Russian peacekeepers are stationed. Whether it is a military-political tactic, what is its purpose - it is of great interest to the Azerbaijani society. We asked military expert Tarlan Eyvazov to clarify these issues. The expert said that in fact the Armenians were the first to violate the ceasefire from the territory of the Russian peacekeepers: “According to paragraph 4 of the declaration of November 10, the Armenians will hand over their weapons to the Russian peacekeepers, and the Armenian armed forces will be withdrawn. Azerbaijan has repeatedly called on Armenia and Russia to fulfill the agreement. Russia states that this is a complex issue and that we are slowing down this process. The agreement provides for the withdrawal of Armenian militants simultaneously with the deployment of peacekeepers. It seems that not only the armed forces of Armenia are being withdrawn, but also new forces are being introduced into Karabakh, the peacekeepers are creating conditions for this, the Armenians do not want to put up with defeat. This does not hinder Armenia, but helps her. Violation of the ceasefire, on the one hand, attracts the attention of the international community where the conflict continues. On the other hand, the Armenians are trying to prevent the return of refugees to the liberated territories around Karabakh, creating fear. However, I disagree with the statement that the Armenians are preparing for a new war, because they have not yet been able to rebuild their army. At the same time, both Europe and Russia are helping to rebuild the Armenian army. For example, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu gives them a sword as a symbol with which we will arm you. Iran also supplies bread to our “brothers” Armenians. These forces, together with the Armenians, think that they will be able to re-occupy the Azerbaijani lands, as it was in the 1990s. All international organizations, especially Russia, do not close their eyes to this process and even help the Armenians.
