OREANDA-NEWS  Unknown persons stained the doors of the Russian Embassy in Armenia with red paint. 

Before that, the incident was reported by local media. The officer on duty at the embassy confirmed that the incident occurred on Friday. According to him, a group of men threw a bag of red paint at the gate.

"Now everything has been cleared," the attendant said.

It is noted that traces of paint still remain at the embassy sign. Currently, the situation at the diplomatic mission is calm.

Prior to that, it was reported that protesters blocked Myasnikyan Avenue in Yerevan, which connects the city center with other districts, as well as with the road to Georgia.

Protests in the Armenian capital continue for the fourth day due to the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh. On Friday, the protesters planned to surround the government building, which will host a meeting with the participation of ministers.

On September 19, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry announced the launch of a local anti-terrorist operation in Nagorno-Karabakh. The purpose of the operation was called the suppression of "large-scale provocations", as well as the disarmament and withdrawal of units of the Armenian army from the region.

In turn, the Armenian Defense Ministry rejected Azerbaijan's statements that Armenian troops still remain on the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.

A day later, with the mediation of Russian peacekeepers, an agreement was reached between the parties on a ceasefire in the region. Among the conditions of the truce, in particular, the disarmament of Armenian formations and the withdrawal of heavy equipment were indicated.
