"Reason for re-start of military operations between Azerbaijan and Armenia is Yerevan's non-implementation decisions of the trilateral statement dated November 10," Director of the Russian Institute for Political Studies, political scientist Sergei Markov said, APA's Moscow correspondent.

According to him, intermittent fighting will continue until the full implementation of articles of the agreement dated November 10, 2020.

"Military operations between Azerbaijan and Armenia have started again. Its reason is the non-implementation of decisions of the trilateral agreement between Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Russia dated November 10, 2020. Armenia has not fully withdrawn its troops from Karabakh. Transport corridors have not been opened yet. The most important among these is the Zangazur corridor, which connects Azerbaijan's main part with Nakhchivan passing through Armenian territory. Armenia extends the demarcation and delimitation of the borders because it does not want to give dozens of small parts of the Azerbaijani territory. The part of the Karabakh territory inhabited by Armenians does not carry out any reintegration into Azerbaijan. No compromise was achieved with them. As long as these issues are not resolved, periodic fighting will continue," noted Markov.

Russian political scientist forecasts that the battles will last for several days. Azerbaijan's stronger army will take control of the small territory, then mediators will achieve the ceasefire.
