Specialists from the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (MES) have completed the unloading of humanitarian aid to Nagorno-Karabakh [(Artsakh)] and are now monitoring its distribution, TASS reported, citing the ministry's press service,
The Russian MES stressed that these materials will help the capital Stepanakert recover quickly before the cold weather begins.
In addition, the Russian MES, together with representatives of the city halls, have assessed the damage to the infrastructures of Stepanakert, Martakert, Martuni, and Askeran towns. "As of today, the inspection of the damaged buildings is over," the Russian MES press service added.
Russian rescuers have delivered—in two convoys—more than 300 tons of construction material to the Nagorno-Karabakh capital.
On November 9, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a joint statement on a complete cessation of hostilities— which Azerbaijan had launched on September 27—in and around Artsakh. Accordingly, Russian peacekeepers are deployed in the region to monitor the implementation of the ceasefire and the cessation of hostilities.
