Tatoyan Foundation urges immediate steps to unblock Artsakh-Armenia road
270 children have been left on the roads in the winter cold since yesterday: the "Tatoyan" Foundation demands immediate steps from the international community to unblock the only road connecting Artsakh to Armenia, unlawfully blocked by Azerbaijan, Former Human Rights Defender of Armenia, Arman Tatoyan wrote on his Facebook page.
''According to credible information of the Center for Law and Justice "Tatoyan" Foundation, 270 children have been left on the roads in the winter cold since yesterday, December 12, 2022, at 10:30 a.m., due to the closure of the only road connecting Artsakh to Armenia by persons representing the so-called "civil" and "environmental" movement of Azerbaijan.
This number of children was confirmed to the Foundation by the Human Rights Defender of Artsakh.
It is obvious that by blocking the road and leaving thousands of civilians in isolation, the blockade of Artsakh has no environmental purpose. it is part of Azerbaijan's criminal policy of extermination of Artsakh Armenians. This is the special goal of the Azerbaijani authorities. To separate Artsakh from Armenia, but also to terrorize and isolate the civilian population.
Children are separated from their families, there are serious problems with access to water, food and medical care.
The Foundation emphasizes that human rights and especially children's rights have nothing to do with political issues, whether the territory is recognized or not, therefore it is urgent that the international community dealing with the protection of children's rights take immediate actions to eliminate violations of children's rights.
It is clear that the blockage of the only road connecting Artsakh to Armenia is the continuation of Azerbaijani criminal policy of depopulating Artsakh Armenians.
This statement will also be sent to the relevant international organizations'', Tatoyan wrote.
