The clashes between the diasporas of Armenia and Azerbaijan began against the background of the aggravation of the military conflict on the border between the countries.
"In recent days, we continue to notice that the Azerbaijani side is trying to transfer the tense situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border to the territory of the Russian Federation and create a conflict between the communities of the two peoples", - said in the Armenian Embassy.
The armed confrontation on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan began on July 12. The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry reported on the shelling of their positions by the Armenian military from artillery installations. Yerevan, in turn, announced about shelling from the Azerbaijani side. Already on the first day of the military confrontation, servicemen were reported killed in Baku. Later, information began to appear about large losses on both sides. It should be noted that for the first time an armed conflict between the countries began not in the region of the unrecognized republic of Nagorno-Karabakh, but hundreds of kilometers from it - in the Tavush region, as it is called in Armenia, and Tovuz (Azerbaijan). The situation on the border has now returned to normal, but tensions remain.
