Russia Warns Against Use of Mercenaries in Karabakh Conflict, Calls for Their Immediate Withdrawal

By Lilia Dergacheva – Sputnik – 30.09.2020

Moscow is concerned about reports of the transfer of illegal armed militants to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement, asserting that Russia is against the move and calls for their withdrawal from the area without delay.

“We are deeply concerned about these processes, which lead not only to an even greater escalation of tensions in the conflict zone, but also create long-term threats to the security of all countries in the region”, the statement says, adding that the ministry is calling on the leadership of both states “to take effective measures to prevent the use of foreign terrorists and mercenaries in the conflict”.

The ministry brought up media reports about militants from Syria and Libya allegedly being transferred to the contested zone in order to participate in the local hostilities.

The clashes between Baku and Yerevan over the Nagorno-Karabakh region – a self-proclaimed republic in Transcaucasia that proclaimed independence from what was then Soviet Azerbaijan – have severely escalated since Sunday, with the sides blaming the aggression on each other and sharing countless videos of destroyed military vehicles.

The conflict dates back to 1991, which saw the Soviet Union collapse. The major military standoff in the region was halted in 1994, as Yerevan and Baku moved to start peace negotiations mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group.

  1. “The ministry brought up media reports about militants from Syria and Libya allegedly being transferred to the contested zone in order to participate in the local hostilities”.
    Syria and Libya? Is that where the USA and NATO backed Rebels have been causing havoc?

    Whoever the ‘militants’ are, they seem to have unlimited funding for their ‘escapades’ in Libya and Syria, and mobility to be moved to whatever “hot spots” that occur, and are presumably heavily armed and have fleets of vehicles, modern weaponry, Logistics and ‘Ordinance’……..Maybe they are funded by The Pentagon, who have managed to “LOSE” several TRILLION DOLLARS, and nobody knows where the money went to????

    Can someone in the USA Government take a long hard look at this ‘problem’? I mean, the American Tax Payers would probably like to know who is stealing their money…….
