There is no reason yet to say that ethnic cleansing is underway in Nagorno-Karabakh, said Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov. However, all rights of the region’s population must be respected, he emphasized.
“For now, there is probably no reason to talk about ethnic cleansing. And for this there are direct contacts, during which we convey our possible concerns,” he said on Channel One, as quoted by RIA Novosti.
The Kremlin spokesman added that “all rights and security of the Armenian population of Karabakh must be ensured.”
Earlier it became known that, through the mediation of the command of the Russian peacekeeping contingent stationed in Nagorno-Karabakh, an agreement was reached on a complete cessation of hostilities from 13:00 on September 20, 2023.
