Some of the foreign citizens stranded in besieged Artsakh have been evacuated, Minister of State Ruben Vardanyan says.
“Families, including those with children, were stranded for more than a month. The government of Artsakh, together with the Russian peacekeepers, today organized the return of a part of them to their homeland,” Vardanyan said in a Facebook post.
However, he said, the inhuman blockade continues for 120,000 citizens of Artsakh, including 30,000 children.
The Lachin Corridor – the only road connecting the Republic of Artsakh to Armenia and therefore the rest of the world – has been blocked by Azerbaijanis since December 12 under fake environmental pretext.
Today, the Azerbaijani side once again disrupted the gas supply to Artsakh.
