On December 8, President Ilham Aliyev signed a decree on the establishment of a foundation to support the families of the wounded and martyrs (“YASHAT” Foundation) who participated in the Second Nagorno-Karabakh war to restore the territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
Azerbaijan restored its territorial integrity by liberating its lands from the Armenian occupation during the 44-day war which started on September 27 and ended on November 10.
Armenian Armed Forces launched a large-scale military attack on positions of Azerbaijani army on the front line, using large-caliber weapons, mortars and artillery on Sept. 27. Azerbaijan responded with a counter-offensive along the entire front.
On November 10, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia signed an agreement to end six weeks of fierce fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh.
Under the agreement, Russian peacekeepers are being deployed along the front line in Nagorno-Karabakh and the corridor between the region and Armenia.
A total of 1,960 Russian peacekeepers are to be deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh under a five-year mandate.
