May turned out to be unprecedented in terms of the intensity of contacts between Baku and Yerevan. The warring countries do not stop the negotiating marathon in the US, the EU and Russia all month long. On May 19, the heads of the Azerbaijani and Armenian Foreign Ministries were received in Moscow by their Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov. The statements of the parties do not inspire hopes for the early signing of a peace treaty, which is being discussed. Baku is determined to legalize victory in the war with Armenia. For Yerevan, the issue is to minimize the concessions that seem inevitable.
