Russians shed some light on the work of the Joint Russia-Turkish Centre monitoring Karabakh ceasefire

The Russian Ministry of Defence has given some information on the work of the Joint Russian-Turkish Monitoring Centre that has been in operation since 30 January to monitor the Karabakh ceasefire.

The website of the Russian Defence Ministry published pictures of the Russian side using drones to monitor the ceasefire. It said,

Russian military personnel are monitoring the ceasefire using unmanned aerial vehicles "Forpost" and "Orlan-10". The military personnel of the Joint Center continuously receive images from unmanned aerial vehicles to the control center, where all movements of military equipment, personnel are analysed, and all facts of crossing the line of contact of the parties are recorded. The duty shifts of the Joint Center collect, summarise and check information on violations of the agreements reached, consider any complaints on issues or problems related to the failure of the parties to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict to comply with the agreements reached.

Pictures appeared to show Russian military personnel only, and it is not clear how the "joint" nature of the centre is operating.
