The Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (MES) has transferred another humanitarian aid to Nagorno-Karabakh [(Artsakh)], and locals will receive warm blankets and construction material to rebuild their homes before the cold weather begins, the MES noted in a statement.
"There are more than 3,000 warm blankets in the cargo. At present, the cargo has been sent to the humanitarian aid distribution point located in [the capital] Stepanakert, and in the near future it will be delivered to the residents of the city," the statement also reads.
It is reported that about 8 tons of construction material was delivered to Martuni town, and it is being distributed among the local residents who are restoring their houses.
"Russian rescuers provide comprehensive assistance to organizations, institutions, including educational institutions [of Nagorno-Karabakh]. Thus, the employees of the Russian MES held open safety lessons at the restored general education school [named] after Onik Grigoryan of Ivanyan village of Askeran Region," the statement also reads.
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.
