Armenian authorities imposed martial law and announced general mobilization

Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh report the resumption of large-scale hostilities in the zone of the Karabakh conflict. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashainyan on September 27 announced the attack by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces on Nagorno-Karabakh. He wrote about this on his Facebook page.

Baku and Yerevan made mutual accusations of aggravating the situation. The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry claims that the Armenian side opened fire, and the Azerbaijani forces launched a counter-offensive operation. The Armenian Defense Ministry states that Karabakh was subjected to air and missile attacks from Azerbaijan.
The Karabakh conflict began in February 1988, when the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region announced its secession from the Azerbaijan SSR. During the armed confrontation in 1992-1994, Azerbaijan lost control over Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent regions. Since 1992, negotiations have been held on a peaceful settlement of the conflict within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group, headed by three co-chairs - Russia, the United States and France. Azerbaijan insists on preserving its territorial integrity, Armenia protects the interests of the unrecognized republic, since NKR is not a party to the negotiations.
