The conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh escalated again in late September. It was possible to stop hostilities only in early November, when, through the mediation of the Russian Federation, the heads of the opposing sides signed a ceasefire agreement. Within the framework of the agreements, part of the territories of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic was ceded to Baku, meanwhile Russian peacekeepers were stationed in the region.
Civilians gradually began to arrive in Karabakh. According to the latest data, over 45 thousand people have returned to their homes. The military from Russia ensure the safe return of citizens to their places of permanent residence, as well as provide comprehensive humanitarian assistance.

According to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, during the presence of our peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh, not a single serious incident was allowed.
