“The Russian peacekeeping contingent continues its mission in Nagorno-Karabakh. Twenty-seven observation points conduct round-the-clock monitoring of the situation and control the ceasefire observance. The ceasefire is being observed along the entire contact line,” it said.
Azerbaijan’s defense ministry said earlier on Tuesday that an Azerbaijani soldier, who was engaged in road repair works in the Agdam district adjacent to Nagorno-Karabakh, was wounded in shelling from the Armenian side. According to the ministry, Armenian illegal armed groups operating on Azerbaijan’s territory, where Russian peacekeepers are temporarily deployed, opened fire at Azerbaijani troops deployed near the village of Aliagaly in the Agdam district at about 17:50 local time (16:50 Moscow time) on July 6.
