The Russian and Armenian sides are in constant contact; we are in constant contact with Baku, too, said Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov, RIA Novosti reported.

Last week, Acting Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan announced at a special parliamentary session that he had written a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin asking for help, including military assistance, because of the current situation on the border with Azerbaijan—in Syunik Province.

"The [Russian] President is a strong supporter of the alternative implementation of the trilateral agreements. Active efforts are being made to defuse tension and rectify the situation [in the region]," Peskov added, speaking to reporters.

And asked whether the Russian President had received Pashinyan's aforesaid letter, the Kremlin representative responded: "I cannot tell you for sure. But all these issues, of course, have been discussed many times during bilateral contacts."
