As you know, following the ceasefire agreement, signed by Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan on November 9, Armenian troops were to withdraw from Kalbajar, Agdam and Lachin districts of Azerbaijan by December 1. The deadline for withdrawal from Kalbajar district initially set for November 15, was later extended for humanitarian reasons to November 25. However, many news agencies reporting from the district have published gruesome details of scorched earth policy along with mining activities, conducted by Armenian troops and paramilitary before the pullout in order to completely delay the beginning of reconstruction and return of Azerbaijani IDPs to their homes after 27 years.
Apart from destroying nature and thus, committing an act of ecoterrorism, Armenians still refuses to provide mining maps for landmines it had set in the occupied territories over the last several years. Since the November ceasefire agreement, many Azerbaijanis were killed by these landmines.
Please send this letter to inform your elected officials about the illegal actions of the Armenian authorities and inaction by the Russian peacekeepers for failing to prevent ecoterrorism and ongoing landmine terrorism on the occupied territories of Azerbaijan.
