Harutyunyan raised a number of issues of cooperation, presenting his observations to Muradov and also stressed the need to continue the steps taken to fulfill the agreements signed by the leaders of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan to end the war in Karabakh.

  1. Obviously the Russian peacekeepers are not doing their job:

    1. Azerbaijan is only belatedly releasing some Armenian POWs and often calls them terrorists.
    2. Azeris have initiated armed attacks against Armenians despite the armistice of Nov. 9, 2020.
    3. Azeris have attacked and vandalized Armenian monuments and churches.
    4. There are still jihadi terrorists in Azerbaijan.

    Does Putin care?
