A statement by the initiative group of Serhildan movement has been published by Boris Murazi, the editor of politik.am news agency.
"Yazidis have never been indifferent to the fate of the Republic of Armenia, which is a center of security and development for our people.
Armenia is living in crucial days today, too, and today it is necessary for the Armenia-loving Yazidi to stand against the loss of statehood and to resist—to the best of his ability—any treacherous idea of handing over our country to the enemy.
Taking into account the current situation, we start the Serhildan (rebellion) movement with friends sharing the same ideology. Our goal is to take part in the process of removing the halls of power that put Armenia before defeat," the statement reads in particular.
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 (Nagorno-Karabakh). 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.
