Caucasus (bbabo.net), - The protest action of representatives of Azerbaijani non-governmental organizations in the zone of responsibility of Russian peacekeepers in Karabakh continues for the fourth day, Azerbaijani media reported on the morning of December 15.
It is indicated that there are more protesters every day, they are not going to disperse and continue their action under the anthem of Azerbaijan.
Activists are holding a protest event in the vicinity of the city of Shusha (Armenian: Shushi), at the checkpoint of Russian peacekeepers against the "denial of admission of Azerbaijani specialists to the territory for monitoring related to the situation of illegal exploitation of Azerbaijani deposits," remind Baku publications.
Over the past 24 hours, the command of the Russian peacekeeping contingent (RMK) continued the negotiation process with the Azerbaijani and Armenian sides to stabilize the situation and unblock the Stepanakert-Goris road (Lachin corridor) in the area of observation post No.
The protest action of Azerbaijani activists in the Shusha region, on one of the sections of the Lachin corridor, which provides the only transport link between Nagorno-Karabakh and the outside world, started on the morning of December 12 and led to the blockade of the unrecognized republic. Later, an energy blockade was added to this - the gas supply to Stepanakert and the settlements adjacent to the Karabakh capital was stopped.
According to politicians and experts in Yerevan, by doing so, Baku pursues two main goals: to persuade Armenia to provide the "Zangezur corridor" from the western regions of Azerbaijan to Nakhichevan with a status similar to the Lachin corridor, as well as the early completion of Russia's peacekeeping mission in Nagorno-Karabakh, a five-year term of which ends in autumn 2025.
