The peaceful protest of Azerbaijani ecologists and young volunteers on the Lachin-Khankendi road over the illegal exploitation of mineral deposits, especially the Gizilbulag and Damirli ones located in the Azerbaijani territories, where the Russian peacekeeping contingent is temporarily deployed, has been going on for the 75th day back-to-back.

Despite the freezing weather, the protestors continue to chant various slogans in English and Russian calling for an end to ecocide against Azerbaijan, as well as demanding monitoring of Azerbaijan’s mineral deposits in the areas where the Russian peacekeeping contingent has been temporarily deployed.

The unimpeded passage of the various types of vehicles, including ambulances and humanitarian convoys is being ensured and the road is open for humanitarian purposes. Yesterday saw the free passage of 67 vehicles that belong to the Russian peacekeepers in both directions on the Lachin-Khankendi road.
