Russian peacekeepers have begun to ensure the safety of local residents during agricultural work in the Martuni district of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), the country's Defense Ministry reported.
The Humanitarian Response Center of the Russian peacekeeping contingent receives daily requests for security from residents of settlements located near the line of demarcation of the parties. So representatives of the village of Chartar of the Martuni district appealed to the Center for Humanitarian Response, in order to ensure safety during work on agricultural fields.
"From today and during the next week, we will ensure safety during agricultural work," said Alexander Vasiliev, a representative of the Center for Humanitarian Response.
Also, local residents create mineralized strips, in order to prevent the fall of grass, protect fields and settlements from fire.
"Thanks to the Russian servicemen who came to protect us, people can work here, thank you very much for helping us," said Khachik Khachatryan, a local resident of Chartar village.
