The Russian peacekeeping contingent, which arrived in Armenia, went to the service areas to carry out their tasks to monitor the ceasefire and military operations in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone, Nakhchivantoday.com says, citing the Russian Defense Ministry.
The military must cover a distance of more than 250 km. The command of the peacekeeping operation will be deployed in Khankendi.
Notably, Russia will station a peacekeeping contingent consisting of 1,960 service members, 90 armored vehicles, 380 vehicles, and special equipment in Nagorno-Karabakh along the contact line Lachin corridor.
The Lachin corridor (5 km wide), which will provide a connection between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia and will not touch Shusha city, remains under the Russian peacekeeping contingent’s control.
By agreement of the parties, constructing a new route on the Lachin corridor, which will provide communication between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia for the next three years, will be determined. Thus the future relocation of the Russian peacekeeping contingent is planned to protect this route.
