Russian peacekeepers will not go to Karabakh.

Russia refused to bring its peacekeeping forces into the territory of Karabakh. Information on this matter was officially announced by the press secretary of the Russian leader Dmitry Peskov, emphasizing that the Russians can not be guided only by the requirements of Armenia in this regard.

"The Kremlin emphasizes that peacekeepers in Karabakh can be brought in only with the consent of both sides of the conflict," said the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov. Earlier, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated that the deployment of Russian peacekeepers in the Karabakh conflict zone could be a way out of the current situation, and called on the United States and France to support Russia's peacekeeping efforts in Karabakh. "We have already repeatedly answered similar questions. Any peacekeepers are brought into the conflict zone only with the consent of both sides," Peskov said, answering the question of how the Kremlin views the fact that Pashinyan spoke in favor of bringing Russian peacekeepers into the conflict zone. Answering the clarifying remark that there is no agreement from the Azerbaijani side yet, and the question whether the Kremlin's position remains the same that Russia is ready to introduce peacekeepers if both sides of the conflict agree ", - about it сообщает Russian news agency RIA Novosti.

It is noteworthy that earlier Armenia announced that the Russian military deployed its forces on the border with Nagorno-Karabakh, however, there is no evidence to this effect - according to a number of resources, under the guise of Russian military, Armenian forces are deployed on the border with NKR. using the Russian flag as a cover against attacks from Azerbaijan. Moreover, this information is also not confirmed by the Russian side, which raises a number of questions as to why Armenia goes to such provocations against Russia, which is, in fact. the only ally of this state in the region.

Experts note that at the moment Azerbaijan is not interested in the introduction of Russian peacekeeping forces in Karabakh.
