In the early morning of September 27, Azerbaijan launched an active offensive along the line of contact with Artsakh. The press secretary of the President of the Artsakh Republic Vahram Poghosyan informs about this.
“Early this morning, the enemy launched an active offensive along the entire line of contact. Peaceful settlements, including the capital Stepanakert, are also being shelled. We call on the population to take refuge.
“At the same time, we declare that our response will be proportionate. The entire responsibility for the situation lies with the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan, personally with Ilham Ali,” Poghosyan said, as reported by Armenpress.
