"From February 24 to March 2, the Azerbaijani party violated the ceasefire in the Karabakh conflict zone for about 200 times. The Azerbaijani Armed Forces fired over 3000 shots from small arms of different calibres on the Karabakh positions," the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent quotes the statement of NKR's MoD.
