EU allocates another EUR 15 million to assist refugees from Artsakh

ArmInfo.The European Union has allocated another 15 million euros to help those forcibly displaced from Nagorno-Karabakh. This was announced by Adrienn Kiraly, the newly appointed Director for Neighborhood East & Institution Building of the Directorate- General for Neighborhood and Enlargement Negotiations of the European Commission. following a meeting with Deputy Prime Ministers of Armenia Tigran Khachatryan and Mher Grigoryan.

"Good discussions with Deputy Prime Ministers Grigoryan and  Khachatryan in Yerevan on our joint efforts to strengthen EU-Armenia  relations During the meeting, I handed over the financing agreement  allocating EUR 15 million in budget support for refugees," she wrote  on her account on Twitter (X).

On  September 19, 2023, Azerbaijan, under the pretext of an   "anti-terrorist operation," undertook another act of aggression   against Artsakh. As a result of enemy aggression, hundreds of Artsakh   residents were injured, and more than 200 deaths were reported,  including civilians. On September 20, Artsakh fell.  Azerbaijan began   the forcible subjugation of the NKR. In addition, on September 20,   late in the evening it became known that Azerbaijan had deliberately   shot two vehicles of the Russian peacekeeping contingent, killing 6   people, including the deputy commander of the RPC. On September 22,   the process of abolishing the Artsakh Defense Army began.  During   search operations from September 21 to 24, the NKR Ministry of   Internal Affairs discovered the bodies of 105 Artsakh residents,   including brutally murdered children and elderly people.  Today   Artsakh is completely de- Armenized; its entire indigenous  population,  over 100 thousand people, was forced to flee to Armenia  under the  threat of physical violence.  On September 25, near  Stepanakert, an explosion occurred at a fuel  warehouse, and a tank  with gasoline exploded. At the time of the  explosion, there were a  large number of people on site who were  queuing for gasoline to  leave Artsakh amid the latest Azerbaijani  aggression. According to  the Investigative Committee of Armenia 218 people were killed from an  explosion at a fuel warehouse, 215 of them  were identified.  At  least 120 people received injuries of varying  severity, mainly in  the form of burns. At the moment, according to  the investigation,  the whereabouts of 21 people are unknown.  Since the enemy aggression  that began in the fall of 2020, which ended in September of this year  with the complete ethnic cleansing of  Artsakh, over 150 thousand  Artsakh residents have become homeless.
