“At the moment, the representative of the Red Cross is with our citizen, but the negotiations have not yielded any results yet, we are waiting for new information.

Other patients have been evacuated to a hospital in Goris by a Red Cross representative who arrived from Goris. The evacuation was carried out via the same route. However, the planned return of those who have completed treatment in Armenia has been cancelled,” wrote Gurgen Nersisyan.

“Armenian people, I am shouting again and again, wake up, stand against all this”,- wrote State Minister.
