19 children separated from their parents for more than a month returned home on the Goris-Stepanakert road

  • Artsakh Ombudsman Gegham Stepanyan:
Due to the blockade, 19 children separated from their parents and family for more than a month returned home on the Goris-Stepanakert road.
The children were transported from Goris to Stepanakert accompanied by Russian peacekeeping forces. The car was stopped by Azerbaijanis in the area near Shushi-Karin Tak, on a cordoned-off section of the road where Azerbaijani government agents posing as "eco-activists" and journalists serving them are stationed. Then 10-15 Azerbaijanis approached the car with cameras in civilian clothes, some of them broke into the car and filmed the children in the car. As a result of the provocative actions of the Azerbaijanis, a stampede occurred in the car, as a result of which one of the children lost consciousness.
