“Unlike France, which limited itself with only standard peace calls even in the period of tension between Baku and Yerevan, Russia contributed to the resolution of the conflict from a practical point of view,” says the statement by the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova regarding French President Emanuel Macron’s thoughts, ONA reports.
"Our country made a decisive contribution to the signing of the trilateral statement of Azerbaijani, Armenian and Russian leaders dated November 9, 2020, which has put an end to the bloodshed. The peacekeeping contingent deployed in accordance with the mentioned agreement remains the guarantor of security in the region. Peacekeepers effectively prevent incidents in the areas of their responsibility and help build a peaceful life. 53 thousand refugees have returned to their homes with their help, the bodies of more than 2000 people who died, have been handed over, in total, 146 detained people were returned back, and more than 25 thousand explosive objects have been neutralized. Work was started by Russia in the direction of comprehensive normalization of relations between Baku and Yerevan.
