Putin put an end to Karabakh: "... is an integral part of the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan"

Putin stated that Karabakh has always been a part of Azerbaijan.

Russian President Vladimir Putin in an interview with the Russia 1 TV channel stated that the territory of Karabakh was, is and will be the territory of Azerbaijan, since the existence of the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is not officially recognized in the world - moreover, even Armenia refused to recognize the sovereignty of the NKR ...

“Armenia did not recognize the independence and sovereignty of Nagorno-Karabakh. This meant that from the point of view of international law, both Nagorno-Karabakh and all adjacent regions were and are an integral part of the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan. The CSTO treaty provides for mutual assistance in the event of aggression against the territory of a member state of this treaty. Nobody encroached on the territory of the Armenian Republic, and this did not give us any right to take direct part in hostilities "- приводит words of the Russian leader "Infoteka24"

It should be noted that a wave of protests swept across the territory of Armenia after the Prime Minister of the country signed the actual surrender of the territory of Karabakh, moreover, very serious accusations were directed at Russia, where it was accused of actually failing to fulfill its obligations. by the way, and this is confirmed by the words of Vladimir Putin, does not correspond to reality.
