In connection with the martial law, certain restrictions on free movement have been introduced for citizens, Uunan Tadevosyan, a source from press service of the Emergency Authority of Nagorno-Karabakh, told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

"When in the streets and in other public places during the martial law, every citizen must have an ID on him/her, which, if necessary, must be presented to the patrols carrying out round-the-clock service throughout the country," Mr Tadevosyan has cited the Commandant's decision. He urged people to move only "in case of emergency."

Besides, exit from Nagorno-Karabakh is restricted for the citizens subject to a mobilization call. It is allowed only in special cases with a pass issued by the Commandant, the "Armenianreport" informs.
