Tagavard villagers in Karabakh demanded to ensure their safety
Residents of the Tagavard-Kaler village in Nagorno-Karabakh have demanded to set up posts of Russian peacemakers in the village and arm the men in order to ensure villagers' safety.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that as a result of the 2020 autumn war the above village of Tagavard came under Azerbaijan's control; and the lower part of the village, named Tagavard-Kaler, remained on the Armenian side. By February this year, 140 families returned to Tagavard-Kaler, but they were deprived of drinking water and opportunity to engage in agriculture and animal husbandry, since under the terms of the armistice, a part of the Tagavard village had passed to Baku.
Margarita Saakyan, the principal of the Tagavard-Kaler school, said that the building was badly damaged by missile attacks. She has noted that the school is clearly visible from the Azerbaijani combat positions; and she has to constantly remind schoolchildren about this.
Liana Stepanyan, the school librarian, said that four missile shells hit her house. While it is restored, she and her family have to rent housing. She hopes very much that the safety of the village will be ensured, because people would not like to leave their houses and their native village.
Apres Avagimyan, a father of four children, has stated that the number of Armenian and Russian posts around the village should be increased, so that Azerbaijani militaries could not try invading the village.
