15% of Artsakh’s Population Transferred to Armenia

Armenia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Tigran Khachatryan, has said today in a press conference that 19,000 civilians from Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) have now entered Armenia through the Lachin corridor. This means that a total of 15% of Artsakh’s 120,000 population have left within 3 days.

The government has provided 2,500 people with living accommodations, whereas the remainder have said they already had places to go within Armenia.

Many others are expected to make the journey to Armenia, however it is facing significant problems. The line of vehicles to enter Armenia is reported to be over 100km long, which is causing some people to run out of gas in the line.

Additionally, doctors within Armenia have said that many of those arriving are suffering from malnutrition.
