The thirty-fourth day of clashes between Azerbaijan and Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh, which began on September 27, was entered. The Azerbaijani army continues its advance against Armenia, which violates all declared ceasefires and continues to attack civilians.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who has continued his attacks on civilians in Azerbaijan, said Russia’s military base was an integral part of his country’s security system. But there was a flash explanation from Russia that the truth was very different.
Igor Korotchenko, a prominent Russian political scientist, claimed that Armenian Prime Minister Pashinyan had attempted to clean up cadres for military officials who he considered a threat to himself.
Korotchenko noted that some high-ranking soldiers in Armenia were dismissed without any reason, noting that these people had previously trained in Russia.
Korotchenko also suggested that Prime Minister Nikolay Pashinyan was making such a move to purge pro-Russian soldiers from the state security system.
Araik Harutyunyan, the so-called leader of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, which is not recognized by the international community, has received a much-discussed confession about the latest situation on the Armenian front!
Araik Harutyunyan said Azerbaijani forces were only 5 kilometers away from Shusha, an important and historical city.
Harutyunyan’s statement, such as this confession, also means that Azerbaijan is very close to a historic victory and that Armenia is about to lose its unfair war.
In a video message shared from the front, the so-called leader explained that Armenia is in a difficult situation and called on the Armenian people to join the army and fight against Azerbaijan on the front.
This call was made by Armenian Prime Minister Pashinyan recently, and the public was asked to support the soldiers at the front.
In photos provided to the world by news agencies, many Armenians, not to mention young and old, are seen in Armenia’s camps training to join the army.
Panic is growing in the Armenian army, which has lost almost all its positions. This photo of Araik Harutyunyan meeting with soldiers next to him in a kindergarten shocked the world.
This image, which Araik Harutyunyan gave on the front line, literally reflects the panic that Armenia is experiencing and the difficult situation it is in.
Armenian army soldiers displayed at the front are demoralized.
Araik Harutyunyan, who said that Azerbaijani forces are only 5 kilometers from Shusha, an important and historical city, noted that the Azerbaijani army, which wants to capture the city, continues its advance.

Shusha in the center of Nagorno-Karabakh, whose Armenian name is Shushi, has historical significance for both Azerbaijanis and Armenians.
Shusha, which is also strategically important, is located on the road connecting Khankendi (Armenian name Stepanakert), the largest city in Nagorno-Karabakh, to Armenia.
If Shusha is captured, the Azerbaijani army will have achieved its most significant victory in Nagorno-Karabakh since the start of fighting on September 27.
A ceasefire was declared three times during the most intense fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh since 1994, but both sides soon accused each other of violating the ceasefire. The talks, scheduled for Thursday in Geneva to find a diplomatic solution to the problem, were postponed, with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Ceyhun Bayramov and Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan also attending.
The Armenian leadership acknowledges that heavy casualties have been inflicted in the conflicts and calls on volunteers to fight on the front lines. The so-called Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Ministry said another 47 soldiers were killed Thursday in the clashes, bringing the death toll to 1,166 since September 27.

We have drastically changed the geopolitical order in the region. It’s changed and a lot of stereotypes are a thing of the past,” he said.
“I think that a very positive format of cooperation has developed in our region today among the leading politicians who set the agenda of these places and aim for cooperation.
