Russia military transport planes transfer 64 units of equipment in 1 day for Russian peacekeepers in Karabakh

Russian military transport planes have conducted 22 flights in one day from Ulyanovsk Vostochny Airport to Armenia, transferring 64 vehicles and special equipment—including armored personnel carriers, off-road trucks, cistern vehicles, excavators, and other logistics equipment, reported the Russian Defense Ministry's press service. After the unloading, respective convoys will be formed to cross into Nagorno-Karabakh [(Artsakh)], and military helicopters will protect—from the air—the route of this convoy, the Ministry added in particular. On November 9, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a joint statement on a complete cessation of hostilities in and around Artsakh. Accordingly, Russian peacekeepers will be deployed in the region to monitor the

implementation of the ceasefire and the cessation of hostilities. But this statement also stipulates the handover of part of Artsakh lands to Azerbaijan.
