Russian Deputy Commander killed in Nagorno-Karabakh shelling, Azerbaijani President extends apology to Putin


Nagorno-Karabakh – Bad luck struck the conflict-torn region of Nagorno-Karabakh on September 20 when the deputy commander of the Russian contingent, Captain 1st Rank Ivan Kovgan, lost his life in a shelling incident involving Russian “peacekeepers.” This unfortunate event has once again drawn attention to the precarious situation in the region and has led to a gesture of condolence and regret from the Azerbaijani President.

The incident occurred amidst the ongoing tensions in Nagorno-Karabakh, a region long plagued by conflict and territorial disputes. Russian “peacekeepers” have been stationed in the area to help maintain stability since a ceasefire agreement was brokered in late 2020.

Details surrounding the shelling incident remain limited at this time, with authorities yet to provide a comprehensive account of the events leading to Captain Kovgan’s death. The loss of a high-ranking Russian military official in the region is a stark reminder of the volatility of the situation.

In response to the incident, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev extended a formal apology to Russian President Vladimir Putin for the loss of life. Such gestures of condolence and diplomatic dialogue are crucial in preventing further escalation in a region known for its protracted conflicts.

The Armenian enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh was attacked by Azerbaijan this week. Diplomatic negotiations, peacekeeping operations, and dialogue between all parties involved are vital for achieving long-term stability and peace in the region.

As the situation unfolds, will closely monitor developments and provide updates on the aftermath of this unfortunate incident and the ongoing efforts to address the challenges in Nagorno-Karabakh.
