A civilian car crashed with the SUV of a Russian peacekeeping unit near the Azerbaijani town of Khankandi, killing four people, reports Azernews, citing Armenian media.
A car (HAVAL) driven by a Russian soldier collided with a VAZ-2107 car driven by Sarushen E., a resident of the neighborhood (26). The four victims were women aged 50, 51, 52 and 56 from Askaran. They were passengers in a VAZ-2107 car driven by a Sarushen, who survived the incident and was hospitalized.
About 2,000 Russian peacekeepers were deployed for five years in Karabakh as part of the trilateral ceasefire agreement signed by Baku, Moscow and Yerevan on November 10, 2020. The signed agreement obliged Armenia to withdraw all its troops from the Azerbaijani lands it had occupied since the early 1990s.
The trilateral ceasefire agreement signed by Azerbaijani, Russian and Armenian leaders on November 10, 2020 ended the three-decade-long conflict over Azerbaijan’s Karabakh region, which together with the seven adjacent regions has come under the occupation of the Armenian Armed Forces during the war in the early 1990s.
The agreement also stipulated the return of the Azerbaijani regions of Kalbajar, Aghdam and Lachin. Prior to the signing of the peace agreement, Azerbaijan liberated 300 villages, settlements, town centers and the historic town of Shusha which had been under Armenian occupation for about 30 years.
