Partial mobilization announced in Nagorno-Karabakh

Partial mobilization was announced in Nagorno-Karabakh on August 3 due to the aggravation of the situation in the region. This was reported in the press service of the Karabakh leader Arayik Harutyunyan.

“Harutyunyan signed a decree, according to which, from August 3, 2022, partial military mobilization has been announced in the republic,” the report says.

On July 27, Armenia filed a lawsuit with the European Court of Human Rights against Azerbaijan’s actions in the villages of Parukh and Khramort in Nagorno-Karabakh. The lawsuit also mentions the actions of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces against the residents of Nagorno-Karabakh, which were committed in 2021-2022, writes Gazeta.Ru.

Azerbaijan, in turn, accused Armenia of shelling the positions of the Azerbaijani army in the direction of the Amiranlar settlement of the Khojavend region.

Armenia and Azerbaijan have disputed ownership of Nagorno-Karabakh since 1988. Then the region, which is inhabited mainly by Armenians, announced its withdrawal from the Azerbaijan SSR. During the military conflict of 1992-1994, Baku lost control over Karabakh. In September 2020, Baku took control of a number of settlements during military operations.

In November 2020, Armenia and Azerbaijan, with the participation of Russia, signed an agreement on the cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh. The document, among other things, provided for the introduction of Russian peacekeepers into the region, the exchange of prisoners between the parties to the conflict, the transfer by Armenia to Azerbaijan of a number of regions of the region and the return of refugees to Karabakh.
