Artsakh Ombudsman: Around 11,000 people forcibly displaced from Artsakh — other figures say 15,000 — have emigrated from Armenia

Around 11,000 people, forcibly displaced from Artsakh, have emigrated from Armenia, Artsakh Ombudsman Gegham Stepanyan said.

He also noted that there have been other reports as well, according to which the number reaches up to 15,000.

“The main reason is the social and financial conditions that disrupt people’s normal course of life in Armenia. That is why they prefer to move to the southern parts of Russia,” Stepanyan said.

As he noted, 10,800 people, who were forcibly displaced from Artsakh, have found jobs in Armenia.

“These are official figures. The sad thing is that representatives of the sphere of education make up a very small percentage; only 220 teachers now work in Armenian educational institutions, while we had 4,000 teachers in Artsakh,” Artsakh ombudsman said.

According to him, this will also contribute to the emigration of the displaced persons from Artsakh.
