Russia also once again called on both countries to resolve the conflict diplomatically, in particular in the issue of defining borders.

At the same time, the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan said that 49 people were killed during the night shelling from Azerbaijan. He says that the Azerbaijani side wants to present it as a response to provocations.

"As of now we have 49 confirmed dead by the Ministry of Defence, but I must also note that this number is unfortunately not final," he noted.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan accused Armenia of "large-scale provocation", in response to which the Azerbaijani army uses "local countermeasures". In Armenia, they said that Azerbaijan started mass shelling in four directions at once.
