Azerbaijan occupied a village in Karabakh in the zone of responsibility of the Russian military; Russia two days later demanded to withdraw troops

The Russian military demanded that Azerbaijan withdraw its troops in Karabakh after the capture of the village of Parukh (Farukh) on March 24, which was in the zone of responsibility of the Russian military under peace conditions after the 2020 war. This was reported to TASS by representatives of the Ministry of Defense.
