The fact that the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan has officially announced the launch of a “counterattack” proves that the actions were planned long ago. This is evidenced by the fact that minutes after the official announcement of the escalation, the Azerbaijani-Turkish media publish materials from the front line. The press secretary of the RA Ministry of Defense Shushan Stepanyan made a note about this on her Facebook page.
“Azerbaijani Defense Ministry has officially announced the launch of a ‘counterattack’, which proves that the actions have been planned for a long time. Any military with basic knowledge will know that planning a counterattack takes weeks. “Minutes after the official announcement of the escalation, the Azeri-Turkish media published materials from the front line, which proves that the provocation initiated by Azerbaijan was planned in advance,” said the RA Defense Ministry spokesman.
Early in the morning of September 27, Azerbaijan launched an active offensive along the line of contact. Peaceful settlements, including the capital Stepanakert, are also being shelled. The population was called to take refuge. Stepanakert stated that the answer will be proportionate, “the entire responsibility for the situation lies with the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan, personally Ilham Ali.” The Armenian side hit two enemy helicopters and three ATS.
Fighting continues along the entire line of contact. The Defense Army stops the enemy’s actions with strong blows.
The RA Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemns the aggression of the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan towards the Artsakh Republic. “The Armenian parties will act confidently to the best of their ability to ensure the security of the people of Artsakh, to give an adequate political and military response. “The entire responsibility for the aggression unleashed by him lies with the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan.”
