YEREVAN. – The missing servicemen’s relatives are protesting again in front of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia.
"We do not want the fate of our children to be the same as that of the prisoners of war," said one of the demonstrators.
And at 3pm, these picketers will be outside the main government building.
"Parents and relatives of conscripts in Artsakh [(Nagorno-Karabakh)], join us," said one of these parents.
There are a large number of police officers near the MOD building.
On November 9, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a joint statement on a complete cessation of hostilities— which Azerbaijan had launched on September 27—in and around Artsakh. Accordingly, Russian peacekeepers are deployed in the region to monitor the implementation of the ceasefire and the cessation of hostilities. But this statement also stipulates the handover of part of Artsakh lands to Azerbaijan.
