Kuleba noted that the Ukrainian embassies in the territory of Azerbaijan and Armenia should help the Ukrainian citizens living there.
War is always a misfortune and destruction, therefore Ukraine is very concerned about the aggravation of the conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. This was announced during the last briefing by the Minister of Legislative Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba.
“The current situation shows that frozen conflicts are not frozen and can explode at any time,” Kuleba said.
He added that support for the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan is important in this matter.
“We supported and support the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, just like Azerbaijan supported our territorial integrity. Our position remains unchanged,” he added.
Kuleba also noted that the Ukrainian embassies on the territory of Azerbaijan and Armenia should help Ukrainian citizens living there.
Let us remind you that on the morning of September 27, the Karabakh conflict flared up with renewed vigor. The parties to the conflict, Armenia and Azerbaijan, accused each other of offensive actions and rocket attacks on residential areas in the Artsakh region (present-day Nagorno-Karabakh and adjacent territories).
Both states declared martial law, and Armenia also declared general mobilization.
The conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia began over Nagorno-Karabakh in 1988, when the predominantly Armenian-populated Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region announced its withdrawal from the Azerbaijan SSR. Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent regions – 20% of the territory of Azerbaijan – are under the occupation of the armed forces of Armenia. In May 1994, the parties reached a ceasefire. The territorial conflict has not yet been resolved.
Baku launched an offensive in Nagorno-Karabakh, seeking to restore sovereignty over the region. The coming days will show whether Azerbaijan will be able to achieve its goal. In the meantime, the Azerbaijani army took control of six settlements in the region and several strategic heights in the conflict zone.
