Armenia has recognized the complete loss of control over Shusha city. This was announced by the press secretary of head of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Vahram Poghosyan.

"War is a difficult military action, in which there are no guarantees of either success or failure," Vahram Poghosyan said.

"We must admit, unfortunately, that up till now, failures still accompany us," Poghosyan said. "Shusha city is completely out of our control."

Poghosyan stressed that the Azerbaijani troops are located in the vicinity of Khankendi city.

Earlier, Azerbaijan and Armenia agreed to the ceasefire regime three times but they were disrupted within a month. The talks took place in Geneva, Moscow, and Washington.

On September 27, the Azerbaijani side fired at settlements, as well as military units in Karabakh. Then the motorized rifle and tank subdivisions of the Azerbaijani army went on the offensive in the northern, southern, and southeastern directions. The Armenian government has declared martial law in the country.

On October 10 and on October 17, Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan reached an agreement on a temporary ceasefire in the conflict in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region. The deal was made during consultations in Moscow, with the mediation of the Russian Foreign Ministry. However, the ceasefire was violated numerously.

Meanwhile, Armenia and Azerbaijan accuse each other of the violation of the new humanitarian ceasefire regime during the combat actions over Nagorno-Karabakh the next day after the achieving agreement.
