For 16 days, environmental activists, representatives of non-governmental organizations and volunteers from Azerbaijan have been holding peaceful protests on the Lachin-Khankandi road, close to the Russian peacekeepers' temporary deployment area, News.Az reports.
Despite the frosty weather, the protesters are holding posters and chanting slogans in the Azerbaijani, Russian and English languages without creating any hindrance to traffic in both directions.
They demand the arrival of Russian peacekeepers' Command Andrei Volkov in the area, the establishment of conditions to monitor the illicit exploitation of the Azerbaijan’s natural resources, and the cessation of Armenia's environmental terrorism on Azerbaijani lands.
