The UN did not respond to Russia’s offer to participate in the demining of Artsakh. The Minister of Defense of Russia, General of the Army Sergey Shoygu announced in the film aired on Friday on “Zvezda” TV channel.

“When all this happened in November, we applied to the UN Mine Action Center, inviting them to Artsakh. The whole area is mined. People are not able to go back there. Who came? Yet, no one. The Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations, the deminers of the Ministry of Defense, as well as local deminers work there,” – Shoygu mentioned.

The Minister stressed that so far only Russian deminers work on the spot.
