Russia delivers nearly 200 tons of cargo to Kalbajar district of Azerbaijan

Another Russian column of the Humanitarian Response Center, consisting of 25 KamAZ military trucks and escort cars, delivered about 185 tons of cargo to the Kalbajar district of Azerbaijan, the Russian Defense Ministry reported.

According to the ministry, the cargo is designated for restoring energy and water supply systems for social facilities and residential buildings (generating stations, electrical equipment, reinforced concrete structures, and building materials).

The assistance was provided to the Azerbaijani side on the basis of the terms of the trilateral agreement between Russia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia dated November 10 last year, added the ministry.

Note, the Azerbaijani Army liberated the territories of Azerbaijan, which were occupied by Armenia nearly 30 years ago, during the 44-day Second Nagorno-Karabakh War. The war started on September 27 when the Armenian Armed Forces launched a large-scale military attack on positions of Azerbaijani army on the front line, using large-caliber weapons, mortars and artillery and lasted until November 10. Until November 10, the Azerbaijan Army liberated some villages and cities of Fuzuli, Jabrayil, Gubadli, Zangilan, Khojavend, Khojaly, Terter, Shusha and Lachin districts. 

On November 10, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia signed an agreement to end six weeks of fierce fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Under the agreement, Russian peacekeepers were deployed along the front line in Nagorno-Karabakh and the corridor between the region and Armenia. A total of 1,960 Russian peacekeepers were deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh under a five-year mandate.

Also, according to the agreement, on 20 November, Armenia handed over the Aghdam region which lies to the east of Nagorno-Karabakh, to Azerbaijan. This followed on 25 November by the Kalbajar region to the northwest of Nagorno-Karabakh.
