    Armenia is currently fighting against terrorists

    • Anna Gorginyan

      @Viaceslav Mikhailovich our targets are only military objects while Azeri targets are churches, hospitals, civillians, Azeri target is Stepanakert but there is no any military object in Stepanakert

    • Viaceslav Mikhailovich

      @Anna Gorginyan What the point to promote an obvious lie? It is counterproductive. You are only exposing Armenian side as the liars. Particular nasty is that Armenian leadership decided to use the missiles against the civilian targets in Ganja just after the signed truce.

    • shaffiq hazard

      what is this terrrorists you are talking about ? Simply because the opposing side is of the Muslim faith ? your s o r o s backed armenian pm authorises the launching of ballistic missiles against residential areas while u can see azerbaijani forces are conducting surgical strikes against armenian military.

    • Anna Gorginyan

      @Viaceslav Mikhailovich there was a military airport in Ganja. Ask your murderer Aliev why your military objects are placed on populated areas. I know the answer. because your government doesn’t care about its people. Our government warned azeri people to leave those places before using missiles. Our government cares more about you than yours. That is humanity. I am sure you know nothing about it

    • Heydər Rzayev

      @Anna Gorginyan you government did not warn anybody. Even if they warned this should have been recorded as utter humility of any official organization. Ganja is fucking 100 km away from the conflict zone. Within the 5 km radius of the targeted civilian settlements, there is not any military position. No airbase, no nothing. This point is groundless really. Should Azerbaijan bomb Armenian cities away from the conflict zone, because they all have some military installments? This is ridiculous. It was done by high ranking officials of Armenia to create panic, period!

  • vardan poghosyan

    hope it will end soon because it is not normal World, that a 14 years old boy have to speak about such a cruel happenings.

    No more civilian death, please.

    • shaffiq hazard

      tell the s o r o s backed armenian pm to stop launching ballistic missiles into residential areas and fight like a man. at least the armenian army are there fighting, where are the political elites ? sending an entire generation of armenian men to an early grave in an unwinnable war.

      Karabakh Belongs to Azerbaijan and Will Always Be Azerbaijan !

  • Anna Ghulyan

    The history of the country called Azerbaijan starts from May 27, 1918, when “Eastern Caucasian Muslim Republic” declared its independence conditionally calling itslef Azerbaijan. The decision was accepted on May 27 but they persistently celebrate it on May 28.
    The term “Azerbaijani” has been circulated since 1936 by the USSR constitution. There was no nation by that name before, instead, they were called “Caucasian Turks” or “Caucasian Tatars”.
    The name Azerbaijan is chosen purposefully. It is the modified version of the name Atropatene, a name of the north-eastern region of Iran. Nuri Pasha, by giving the name to the region, made a ground for future claims over the northern regions of Iran.
    In reality, Caucasian tatars did not have a goal of creating an independent country. They had very strong Pan-Turkism ideology and had been asking to connect the muslim territories of the Caucasus to the Ottoman Empire. However, Turkey rejected that option, taking into consideration that this would not be accepted by their allies, especially by Germany. So, it was a good option for Turkey to create a new independent country in the Caucasus.
    Lets stress the fact that the tribe which didn’t have its own identity, language, culture and religion was granted a country.

    • Vaq1f

      @Anna Ghulyan ok, let’s belive that you saying truth. How about your people where in every comment write “we win, artsakh strong, azerbaijan losing war” but in reality from 27th September we liberated our 3 cities and many villages and boundary with Iran. How about this? May be your government lying to you and your people?in reality we are winning this war and we can see every day new videos from our official site ministry of Defence of Azerbaijan.

    • Viaceslav Mikhailovich

      @Anna Ghulyan That is exactly what I say: the independent republics appeared as result of Bolshevik coup d’etat. Some declared their independence even in 1917. It didn’t matter, because the civil war just begun and finished in year 1922. Then new borders were established.

    • shaffiq hazard

      it is a bit much to say that the orghuz turks do not have their own identity language culture and religion when they have existed there for a very long time, we are not talking decades but hundreds of years or thousands. your language is very dangerous, sounds like you are advocating the genocide of the people there simply because they are different.

    • Samantha Earl

      Is that why Alexandre Dumas had a friendship with the daughter of Karabakh Khan? Natavan Khurshidbanu! Go look her up, and then feel embarrassed for your country fake history.

    • Gunel Dadashova

      @Anna Ghulyan what you are saying is happening exactly in your country! Your government tells you lies and you even don’t know the history.. It’s unbelievable … I am really sorry for you that you don’t know the history that a little child knows ..

    Vahe you break my heart every time I see you. So sad that your childhood was taken away from you, your right to live in your own home was taken away from you. I’m sorry my son, this world is not fair at times. But trust in God even when you want to give up on him, he is watching from above, and those responsible for these heinous acts will pay dearly. I will pray for my people and the good people of the world. The rest can burn in hell.

    • Gunel Dadashova

      Your heart will be even more broken if you see how the little Azerbaijani baby from Gandja was killed while sleeping … did you see that baby’s picture??? Did you see all other babies’ pictures which were killed in Gandja as well as in Khojali in cold and snowy weather?! It is not genocide, it is more than genocide .. Allah sees everything.. Open your eyes and see the bitter truth! It is difficult I understand but you should know and confess that Armenia occupied our lands and killed the people living in those lands in a tragedic way … I am in depression because of Khojali and Ganja genocide … My heart is broken into pieces … Allah will help us! He sees everything!

    • Sevinc Semedova

      @Gunel Dadashova thank you for the truth 🇦🇿

    • {A||K! Prods} Karl Armen

      It is important to reflect on how this war came about. Why would a small landlocked nation with few resources start a war? Why would they bother to conquer lands that is not theirs when they can barely maintain what they have now? Armenians have been acting in self defense since day 1. Once again, put your weapons down Azerbaijan and Armenians will put down theirs. We want peace as well.

    • Gunel Dadashova

      @{A||K! Prods} Karl ArmenPut down your guns! We are saying this words for 30 years! Armenia started the war, killed innocent people in the middle of night driving them out to the forests , finding them there , killing them and doing inhuman things on dead bodies! What are you talking about?! You don’t know anything! Armenia lives in our lands after this vandalism and though we wanted peace and to get back our lands by peace for 30 years, they had never cared about it and had been breaking the ceasefire so far. Last days Armenia started to claim that our some cities are theirs too. Again Armenia started the war. Armenia has always wanted to get what is not theirs. Stop this nonsense! You all are acting like Don Kichot! Maybe Don Kichot is also Armenian?! For you all the world belongs to Armenia. The world don’t know how dangerous Armenians are!

  • Roza Sargsyan

    The Security Council should impose an embargo on the sale of arms to Azerbaijan.

    A U.N. Peacekeeping Force should be created and positioned along the Line of Contact to deter attacks by Azerbaijan against Armenians in Artsakh.

    • Samantha Earl

      UN peacekeeper told you to get your terrorist military out of Azerbaijan lands, what are u ever saying? 😂

    • Heydər Rzayev

      The war was started by Armenia in 1988. Since then a fragile ceasefire has been put in place. But, as we all know, ceasefire is not peace. Several times ceasefire was broken and every time lives are lost. The only way is peaceful and diplomatic resolution within the frame of international law. According to international law, Armenia occupies 20% of Azerbaijan’s sovereign territory. There have been several diplomatic guidelines to solve the problem peacefully which was rejected by Armenia. Because, on the basis of all these principles stands IMMEDIATE, UNCONDITIONAL AND COMPLETE WITHDRAWAL OF ARMENIAN TROOPS FROM AZERBAIJAN’S SOVEREIGN TERRITORY. This is requirement of UN, UNSC, OSCE and other international organizations. So, when do Armenia plan to move out of occupied territories?

    • risktaker.

      Armenia has occupied Azerbaijan’s Karabakh and 7 surrounding districs (20% of our lands). Despite the fact that all of the UN Security Council Resolutions (822, 853, 874 and 884) reaffirm sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan Republic, Armenia refuses to accept them

    • risktaker.

      Azerbaijan has not started this war. Armenia started the war in early 90-s by occupying Karabakh, which is an internationally recognized part of Azerbaijan! Azerbaijan is deoccupying it own lands!

    Since September 27, 2020, Azerbaijan, backed by Turkey, initiated a large-scale, unprovoked war against the Republic of Artsakh and the Republic of Armenia. Over the last days Azerbaijani forces have intentionally been attacking civilians and civilian infrastructures, and they have heavily shelled Stepanakert, Shushi, Mardakert, Hadrut, and other settlements with cluster munitions and other weapons prohibited by international humanitarian laws.

    The Shushi Holy Savior (Ghazanchetsots) Cathedral, was severely damaged after two deliberate air raids conducted by the Azerbaijani military on October 8 and 9. This is not only a violation of the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict and its two (1954 and 1999) Protocols, but also a part of policy of the cultural genocide that the Azerbaijani government has been implementing over the past 30 years by systematically destroying the Armenian historical heritage, including thousands of ancient Khachkars (carved cross stones) in the city of Djulfa (Nakhichevan). It is well established that cultural genocide is clear evidence of the existence of a special intent to commit genocide.

    Furthermore, it is documented that Turkish armed forces and air forces directly participate in hostilities. Moreover, there are many impartial international media reports showing that during the current large-scale Azeri aggression against Artsakh, a substantial number of mercenaries identifying as jihadists from Syria and Libya, and likely also from Afghanistan and Pakistan, are hired and sent by Turkey to Azerbaijan to fight against Armenians . This also constitutes a violation of international law.

    Direct Turkish involvement in the decades-long conflict is thus no longer a threat that Armenians in Artsakh, Armenia, and Turkey have had to fear, but a fact that threatens to annihilate Armenians in Artsakh and beyond. A recent statement issued by the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, read that they, Turkey, were going “to continue to fulfill the mission of their grandfathers, which was carried out a century ago in the Caucasus”. This constitutes a direct threat of continuing the Armenian genocide that began in 1915.
    We demand that the international community takes direct and serious action so that the Azerbaijani aggression immediately ceases, and that anti-Armenian state propaganda and hatred in Azerbaijan and Turkey ends. We appeal to the international community to raise their voices against xenophobia, aggression, and war, and for the prevention of new genocide.

    Our flight is for our home , against Turkey’s and Azerbaijan’s terrorism , aggression !!!

  • Hayk Hovhannisyan

    Armenia has always been keen to negotiate. Since 1994, Armenia has agreed to all the solutions proposed by the OECD Minsk group without any exception (including those which ask Armenia to offer districts to Azerbaijan), but in condition and in obligation of mutuality. The last proposed program was the Kazanian convention based on Madridian principles. Armenia has agreed to it, Azerbaijan has not. Azerbaijan itself hasn’t agreed to any of the solutions proposed by the Minsk group, but one in 1997 which was later got off the table eventually. Azeri side was always imperialistic and if you think that 25-30 years of negotiations got you nowhere, you better ask why to Aliyev clan.

    нет наоборот. Это доказано в Ханкенди. Армянская артиллерия дислоцируется среди мирного населения Ханкенди. Эта идея ошибочна, потому что азербайджанская армия постоянно наступает.
