Azerbaijan Cuts off Gas to Artsakh, Blocks Lachin Corridor

Azerbaijan Cuts off Gas to Artsakh, Blocks Lachin Corridor

The Lachin Corridor, the only road connecting Armenia proper with the self-proclaimed Republic of Artsakh, has been blocked by Azeri protestors for over 24 hours now. It is blocked by what claims to be an environmental protest. However, some of the protestors flash the Grey Wolves sign and some also have been found to be members of the Azerbaijan military. The Artsakh government has accused Azerbaijan of sending the protestors to create provocation. They have offered to allow international observers to come in to monitor the mining project the protestors claim to be protesting.

Russian peacekeepers have been notified of the incident but have thus far been unsuccessful in clearing the road.

And now gas supply to Artsakh is being halted by Azerbaijan. Gas to Artsakh is supplied by Armenia, but travels in a pipeline that goes through Azeri held territory. The cut of gas supply that is required for heating can be very dangerous as winter arrives.

Gas was cut off back in March 2022 for several days, when temperatures reached -5 celsius.
