Russian media quoting a source in the Ministry of Defense claimed that Russian troops under the cover of "peacekeepers" will be sent in the Nagorno-Karabakh in near future.
The paper Nasha Verisya (Our version) citing sources in the Ministry of Defense reported this, according to the Bakililar.AZ.
According to the source, Azerbaijani Defense Minister Safar Abiyev visited Moscow this year two times already to agree on details of stationing Russian troops in Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region.
The paper's information has been confirmed by deputies of the Azerbaijani parliament, linking it with a hasty adoption of the military doctrine by the parliament of Azerbaijan. They believe that the first Russian soldiers will appear in Nagorno-Karabakh approximately in the beginning of August.
At the same time, it is reported that Ankara warned Azerbaijan through the Foreign Ministry that in case of entering Nagorno-Karabakh by the Russian troops, Turkish units will be immediately sent to Nakhichevan - pursuant to the Treaty of Kars of 1921, which stipulates a possibility of military intervention by Turkey in the event of a security threat in this region.
It is noted that the Turkish Ministry of Defense of Turkey issued a statement a week ago, which explicitly links the planned enter of its army units in Nakhichevan with the appearance of Russian soldiers and officers in Nagorno-Karabakh.
