As the crisis in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) continues to unfold, a significant number of forcibly displaced citizens have sought refuge in the Republic of Armenia. According to the press secretary of the Prime Minister of Armenia, Nazeli Baghdasaryan, as of 22:00, 98,929 displaced individuals have entered Armenia.
In response to this dire situation, 46 high-capacity buses were allocated to transport forcibly displaced persons from Karabakh to safety.
Earlier, NEWS.am reported that the large-scale aggression initiated by Azerbaijan against Nagorno-Karabakh since September 19 has led to a heart-wrenching exodus, with countless residents urgently leaving their native lands behind and making the arduous journey to Armenia. In the face of this crisis, they have little opportunity to gather their personal belongings, leaving their homes and possessions behind.
For their escape, some individuals are using their own vehicles, while others are relying on government-provided buses, desperately seeking refuge from the unfolding catastrophe. The Stepanakert-Kornidzor road has become a symbol of this mass movement, where an endless line of cars stretches from the heart of Stepanakert, resulting in traffic jams that leave people stranded on the road for days.
