For two months official Baku, using irrefutable intelligence data, has been presenting to the command of the Russian peacekeeping forces video evidence of the active delivery of arms and food supplies to the forward positions of the illegal Armenian armed groups in Karabakh through the Khankendi–Khalfali–Tursu and Khankendi–Kesalar–Mirzalar–Tursu unofficial corridors, alternative to the Lachin road.
The command of the Russian peacekeeping forces led by the notorious Major General Andrey Volkov in their usual apathetic manner disavowed the evidence presented by the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense, continuing to condone the active delivery of weapons to the bandit groups.

However, the Russian command, once again playing ostrich, chose not to notice the active military intervention and the illegal movements. We offer our readers the exclusive video evidence presented by the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan to the Russian side.
After the intensification of military supply routes, Azerbaijan showed its will and made a decision to take control of the Khankendi–Khalfali–Tursu and Khankendi–Kesalar–Mirzalar–Tursu roads. After the preventive measures taken by Azerbaijan, the delivery of military cargoes to the illegal armed groups was completely halted…
