People staged a protest action in front of the U.N. office
in Armenia. The aim of the protest was to draw the attention of the
international organization to the developments in Artsakh. Their mere demand
was to open the Lachin corridor.
Former Human Rights Defender (Ombudsman) Larisa Alaverdyan
took part in the action as well.
“Article 35 of the U.N. Charter provides that a state
which is not a member of the United Nations may appeal to the U.N. in case of a
threat,” Larisa Alaverdyan said.
As Alaverdyan noted, not only the U.N. but also UNICEF must
respond to the current situation.
“Where are they now? Aren’t the 30,000 children
from Artsakh children?” Alaverdyan noted.
Children from Artsakh also took part in the protest. They
sang the national anthem of Artsakh. Although no one approached the protesters
from the U.N. office, the children turned to the U․N․
Resident Coordinator in Armenia with a letter.
“We will give you a letter and then finish today’s
action. We will be looking forward to your reply and will come back for
it,” the protesters said.
