So reading around it was when Tajikistan tried to install security cameras near the water intake plant when the situation spiraled out of control.
I have not seen any mention of Russia anywhere from either party or Russia itself so any mention of "Russia being blamed by so and so" is I believe Twitter nonsense as KVS said. Read multiple news pages of the same. Both sides agree it is a problem between the two and while they still build up forces between each other's borders, they both agree to talks.
I say while it is sad 34 people lost their lives, at least they agree to a more peaceful settlement.
It sucks such things flare up near Russia and it seems to happen a lot. It's the Caucuses though and these people love to have conflicts with each other. Best option was for Russia to stay out of it unless it got real bad. Wouldn't be surprised if both parties called Russia during this and were told to get their shit in order.

No because then these people will possibly see it as a sovereignty issue thinking Russian invasion causing more trouble for Russia than not.
The Karabakh situation was Russia resolving Armenia's bullshit for them and preventing genocide of the people there from the Turdisatnies.
