For about a month, the village of Khramort in Artsakh was targeted by Azeris, who fired from a grenade launcher. A civilian was injured in the explosion of an Azerbaijani mine in the yard of his house. The women and children had to leave the village. The people of Khramort were especially alarmed by the fact that the Azerbaijani side had brought military equipment to their positions. A few days ago, the Russian peacekeepers established a permanent base in the village, after that there were no serious incidents.
