The inspection of the area of Secondary School No. 10 of Stepanakert and the search for and clearing of explosives there were completed during the past day, the Russian Defense Ministry reports.
Russian servicemen from the Humanitarian Demining Center looked for explosives at the school and the surrounding area.
In addition, the specialists of Russia's center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Nagorno-Karabakh [(Artsakh)] ensured the supply of electricity, restoration of heating, as well as the safe delivery of necessary school property and materials.
With the support of Russian peacekeepers, it is planned to reopen some other educational institutions in the near future.
In total, engineering units have cleared more than 34 hectares of land, about 12 kilometers of roads, inspected more than 110 buildings and social facilities, and found and defused 1,077 explosives in Nagorno-Karabakh.
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.
