Artillery silenced in Nagorno-Karabakh after Putin's conversation with Aliyev


5 October 2020 Azerbaijani army inflicted rocket and artillery strike on the Armenian city of Stepanakert in Nagorno-Karabakh. As a result of the shelling, civilians were injured and significant material damage was caused. Now the population of the city is not bothered by the sounds of the air raid and ammunition falling from the sky, shops have started to work and the electricity supply has been restored. On social media, this phenomenon has been nicknamed the "humanitarian pause."


On October 7, 2020, a telephone conversation took place between Russian leader Vladimir Putin and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, after which Baku stopped shelling the NKR. In addition, the Russian President spoke on the phone with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, because the Azerbaijani side complained about the shelling of their cities by the Armenian army.

Putin managed to give people a break at least for a while, and perhaps it saved someone's life. French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said that on October 8, negotiations on Nagorno-Karabakh are to be held in Geneva. On October 12, they will continue in Moscow. Therefore, it is likely that all this time, cluster munitions of the Smerch MLRS will not be poured onto Stepanakert.

It should be noted that on October 7, Aliyev gave an interview to Channel One, a fragment of which was shown on the air of the Vremya Pokazhet program.


First of all, four UN Security Council resolutions, which were adopted back in 1993, must be implemented

- said the head of state, answering a journalist's question, what should happen for Azerbaijan and Armenia to sit down at the negotiating table.

Aliyev explained that Baku will return to negotiations with Yerevan over Nagorno-Karabakh when the phase of military confrontation ends. Azerbaijan counts on political settlement of the conflict, but he cannot wait another 30 years. He drew attention to the fact that Armenia is trying to involve other countries in this conflict. The President stressed that the Azerbaijani population should return to the places of residence from which they were expelled three decades ago.

    Artillery silenced in Nagorno-Karabakh after Putin's conversation with Aliyev

    - The artillery was silent in Nagorno-Karabakh ... -but here near Ryazan it "rumbled" so much that it continues to rumble to this day ...
    -Maybe our guarantor first needs to "conduct conversations" in Russia and restore order here; and Karabakh will settle down somehow ...

    The problem is that for Aliyev, defeat in this company would mean the loss of his position and life, possibly. Those. Aliyev cannot stop until he has used all his resources. And then he will need to demonstrate some successes ... If the people do not appreciate them, then the Aliyev family will face a sad fate.

    Why is the fact that Turkey will take over the South Caucasus bad? Georgia is already an enemy country, Armenia was on the verge of becoming the second Ukraine, and Azerbaijan did not participate in the Maidan Sabbaths. What will we lose from the fact that Armenia falls not under the European-American protectorate, but under the Turkish one? We are not cold from this, not hot. Or what will happen if Turkey starts shooting Georgia? We are not cold because of this either. If Turkey wants to continue squandering national resources, then so be it. We have no allies there. Especially senile marasmus called "brothers". These brothers are happy to organize ethnic crime and show savagery in Russia.

    What happened?
    For ten days they were shouting loudly that Sultan Erdogan had penetrated the South Caucasus. And as soon as Aliyev called Putin and congratulated him on his birthday, how did the artillery go silent?
    Didn't anybody break the template? Does it mean that the war in the South Caucasus is ruled not by Erdogan, but by Putin? How did it happen that Turkey's "vassal" or Erdogan's "puppet" obeyed instructions from Moscow?
    Twice two so no one could fold?

    By the way, the artillery never fell silent.

      The artillery is not silent, but rings out at full speed. A couple of days ago, VVP answered about a truce and about negotiations Aliyev. And this was shown on your news: "Aliyev refused to go to Moscow"... No negotiations, only negotiations on the implementation of 4 UN and OSCE resolutions. VVP called yesterday, to stop for at least a couple of days, for reasons of humanity, exchange of prisoners and bodies of the dead. For negotiations on a ceasefire, the Foreign Ministers do not eat, but the Head of State.

        The heads of state do not go to negotiations, but to sign documents, when all issues have been settled. Before that, a long work is underway to coordinate the positions of the parties. Not even at the level of foreign ministers.
