Although the security situation in the conflict zone showed clear signs of deterioration, there was little change in the political positions of Armenia and Azerbaijan, or in the drivers and dynamics of their interaction. The countries began once again to accuse each other of spreading disinformation, making it difficult for outside observers to analyse the scope of violent incidents and their impact on civilians.
