Armenians of ethnicity start to flee occupied territory

The first group of Armenian people from Nagorno-Karabakh have come to Armenia, a few days after Azerbaijan took control of the area.

They came in right after the local officials said that they were going to relocate the people who lost their homes because of the fight.

Azerbaijan recently took control of an area that has around 120,000 Armenians living in it. They have stated that they want to bring these Armenians back into society as equal citizens.

Armenia has expressed concern that they could experience a situation where certain ethnic groups are forcefully removed or eradicated.

About 40 people were in the first group to go. Armenia promises to assist anyone who wants to leave, but has repeatedly blamed the Azerbaijani authorities for causing a large number of people to leave.

During a TV speech on Sunday, Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashanyan said that unless Azerbaijan offered better living conditions and protection against ethnic cleansing, many people in the enclave would feel they have no choice but to leave their homeland.

He said again that his government was ready to warmly welcome our relatives.

But according to David Babayan, who advises the ethnic Armenian leader of Nagorno-Karabakh, Samvel Shahramanyan, he believes that almost everyone will leave.

He said that his people do not want to be a part of Azerbaijan. Almost all of them prefer to leave their historic lands.

“He told Reuters that the suffering of our less fortunate people will be remembered as a terrible thing for both the Armenian people and the entire civilized world. ”

“The people in charge of what happens to us will have to answer to God for the bad things they have done one day. ”
Nagorno-Karabakh is a hilly area in the South Caucasus. It is officially considered to be a part of Azerbaijan by other countries, however, it has been under the control of Armenians for the past 30 years.

Armenia and Russia have been supporting the enclave for a long time. Russia has had many soldiers there.

Five Russian peacekeepers, along with more than 200 ethnic Armenians and several Azerbaijani soldiers, were killed when Azerbaijan’s army attacked earlier this week.

Despite what Azerbaijan has said to the public, people are still worried about the residents of Nagorno-Karabakh. Only one delivery of 70 tonnes of food has been allowed since the separatists agreed to stop fighting and give up their weapons.

Leaders of the Armenian community say that many people do not have enough food or a place to live, and they are sleeping in basements, schools, or outside.

In his speech on TV, the leader of Armenia also suggested that Russia did not help them during the war.

His comments repeated the criticism that Moscow had basically given Nagorno-Karabakh to Azerbaijan – a claim that Russia’s foreign minister has called “absurd”.

Yerevan and Baku resolved the situation, Sergei Lavrov said at the UN General Assembly. It’s time to start building trust with each other.
