    Biz Azerbaycanlı anneler Aliyev'den öldürülen oğullarımızın cesetlerini teslim etmesini istiyoruz ama maalesef cesetler dağlarda ve bataklıklarda çürüyor. Ve Aliyev bu bedenlerle ilgilenmiyor, Aliev gücünü, servetini ve suçlu ailesini düşünüyor.

    Israel supplied drone to Azerbaijan. That's why they have upper hand. Its has became drone warfare rather than conventional infantry war. Armenia is alone fighting this war. Syrian mercenaries are fighting along with Azerbaijanis.

    still the Azerbaijani are speaking only about occupied territories, while their real mission is to clean the enclave from Armenians. the world should know about this. they want to show the causalities of the war after they ignite it by themselves. the victims of Ganja should never blame Armenia for the destruction, b/c their government knows that this comes when deciding to declare the war on Armenia.

    “For three weeks now, Azerbaijan has been violently shelling the cities and villages of Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh), including its capital Stepanakert, deliberately targeting civilian population and civilian infrastructures, killing dozens of peaceful citizens and forcing them to leave their homeland. In addition to this, Azerbaijan has already targeted and inflicted casualties on the civilian population and infrastructures in the territory of the Republic of Armenia. The current large-scale aggression was preceded by Azerbaijani provocative disinformation and smearing campaigns, just like the most recent one, the so-called “Armenian strikes on Ganja.”

    The whole whole world as well as UN regonizes Karabakh as territory of Azerbaijan. And stop telling you lived there 2000 years ago,by that logic Mongolia shoul rule the modern day Russia, China, Korea, southeast Asia, Persia, India, the Middle East and eastern Europe just because Chengiz Khan occupied those in the 13th century? Basic Armenian logic. Pathetic.

    Armenians need to understand their Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan is a fraud!

    Pashinyan’s spineless Wife Anna Hakobyan and his coward Son Asshol Pashinyan both undertook their military training and service respectively in Nagorno-Karabakh and are able servicewoman and serviceman, so why isn't anyone asking where are they hiding during this war?

    According to Armenia's Ministry it’s imperative to transcript all self-effacing civilian children to face the front line, however this elite's Son Asshol is deemed way too overworked during this campaign and has been whisked away to Macron’s estate on the French Rivera for some much earned Rest and Relaxation!

    Evidently Anna Hakobyan is also unavailable as she is too busy stashing away stolen Cash as her net worth has grown significantly from 2018-2019, so how much is Anna worth at the age of 42 you may ask? An astonishing 5 Million USD!!! Ooooouch, ok, so let’s put this into perspective! How does an incompetent unemployed Journalist, who was borderline broke in 2017, accumulate $5,000,000 USD of wealth in just 2 years, which just so happens to coincide with Pashinyan taking office unelected and by force in 2018?

    Apart from aiding and abetting pilfering of the state Pashinyan has many other repugnant traits, he is also a warmonger and a provocateur! In a speech in Nagorno-Karabakh he declared the region Armenian territory and had the pusillanimity to order an attack on Azerbaijani citizens to steal even more Azerbaijani land and gold resources during his speech!!

    Armenian's need to wake-up before it’s all too late! Call this Fraud out and place your faith in international law. Stop the occupations go home to Yerevan get a job in journalism and you are assured to become a multimillionaire within 2 years!!! The Pashinyan’s attests to this, they are a glistening example!!!
