Artsakh Agriculture Minister: Scheduled power outages, lack of diesel fuel also cause problems in irrigation system
STEPANAKERT, JULY 18, ARTSAKHPRESS: "Under these conditions, when we don't have diesel fuel to be able to use diesel generators during scheduled power outages, we are facing very serious problems in irrigation.
