“We hope that this conflict will be ended in the very near future, but if it is not completely settled, apparently, this is still a long way off, but in any case, we urge, and I want to say this again, we urge ceasefire, “Putin said.

He emphasized that this must be done “as quickly as possible.” “This is a tragedy, we are very worried, because people living in Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Nagorno-Karabakh are not strangers to us,” the Russian President said.

He accentuated that about 2 million Azerbaijanis and over 2 million Armenians live in Russia. “A huge number of Russian citizens maintain close, friendly ties with both republics. Of course, this is a huge tragedy, people are dying, heavy losses on both sides,” Putin said.
