So important key of the day:
The main event was the coordinated declaration of the great powers on this issue, in which the warring parties called for a ceasefire. At the same time, the veils of Turkish participation in the conflict were finally thrown off, which the troika also announced in various forms.
At the same time, everything seemed to be unchanged at the front itself. This is confirmed by both the lack of intelligible news with a demonstration of success, and the active use of “video conserves” from the achievements of previous days. Moreover, both sides.
The tactics of the Azerbaijani army on the maximum dehydration of the air defense of the Armenian forces by destroying combat vehicles and provoking the launch of missiles became more obvious. It became clear that the Azerbaijani side is actively using various false targets and traps, including the unmanned version of the An-2 aircraft. This explains the fantastic applications of the Armenian anti-aircraft gunners.
At the same time, on the battlefield, the Azerbaijanis also actively used artillery and heavy flamethrower systems to destroy individual strongholds.
In these conditions, the main task of the Armenian side was the maximum preservation of manpower and equipment, as well as slowing down the pace of the enemy’s advance through the conduct of individual counterattacks and the application of fire raids, including long-range artillery.
It seems that tomorrow may bring a number of important injections, and these will largely depend on the rhetoric and actual actions of the United States, Russia and France.
