Russian peacekeepers block Aghdam-Stepanakert road with barricades and barbed wire after Azeri aid show
YEREVAN, AUGUST 30, ARMENPRESS. Russian peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh have closed the Aghdam-Stepanakert road with barricades and barbed wire after Azerbaijani authorities said they were sending what they described as “humanitarian aid” through that road, a move vehemently decried by Nagorno-Karabakh as an attempt by Baku to subjugate them and mislead the international community.
Videos posted online show Russian peacekeepers blocking the part of the road where the Azeri trucks are now parked.
The road is blocked by residents of Nagorno-Karabakh as well, who have installed tents there. Nagorno-Karabakh has rejected any Azeri aid and insists on the reopening of the Lachin Corridor.
Azerbaijanis have also installed tents in that section.
Meanwhile, the Azerbaijani authorities themselves have been blocking Armenian and French humanitarian convoys at the entrance of Lachin Corridor.
Lachin Corridor has been blocked by Azerbaijan since late 2022, resulting in an ongoing humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh.
