Russia reported on Saturday that it would provide necessary help to Yerevan in its dispute with Azerbaijan about the separated region of Nagorno-Karabakh if the struggling arrived to the territory of Armenia.
The foreign ministry in Moscow declared, appealing the warring parties to immediately stop fire: Russia will render Yerevan all necessary assistance if clashes take place directly on the territory of Armenia.
Moreover, Armenian Prime Minister, Nikol Pashinyan, called Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier Saturday to start urgent consultations on security assistance. In fact, Russia possesses a military base in Armenia and has a defense deal with Erevan.

The present confrontations began on September 27 and struggling has continued although the frequent international efforts to establish a ceasefire.
Otherwise, Russia has related in a previous time that its defense deal with Armenia doesn’t prolong to the separated region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
