Maria Zakharova: Russia condemns tensions in Karabakh conflict zone

As an OSCE Minsk Group co-chair country, Russian condemns tensions along the Line of Contact and urges the parties to take all the necessary steps to prevent the further escalation of tension in the zone of conflict, said Russian Foreign Ministry’s Spokesperson.

According to the information received from different sources, the Azerbaijani military fired at a military object on the opposite side of the contact line on May 15. The opposite side retaliated in kind. The information on the nature of the object, the degree of the damage inflicted and casualties sustained among its personal staff are controversial. I am again expressing the principled stance of Russia on the issue,” Maria Zakharova said.
