During a conversation with “Armenpress” the spokesman of the Artsakh President Vahram Poghosyan commented on the information that the Azeris had blocked the road to the village of Hin Shen in the Shushi region for a long time leaving the residents in a blockade.

“Azerbaijani forces tried to put pressure on the Armenian side by setting up a base on the road leading to Hin Shen, but as a result of the intervention of the Russian peacekeeping troops, today the Azerbaijani base was removed  from the road and Hin Shen was unblocked.

The security and the peaceful movement of the community residents are currently ensured by the representatives of the Defense Army, as well as by Russian peacekeepers”, noted Arayik Harutyunyan’s spokesman.

In addition to that, he denied  the rumor that the Azeris had given 12 hours to the population of Yeghtsahogh near Hin Shen to leave the village.

According to him, “The matter referred to the militaries in one position of the Defense Army. In response, the Armenian side rejected the demand, and the position is currently under the control of the Armenian forces”.
