One year ago today, Azerbaijan launches its ethnic cleansing campaign against the Armenians of Artsakh.

With over 1000+ Azeri soldiers currently occupying Armenian territory, innocent Armenian soldiers being killed by Azerbaijani forces, and hundreds of Armenian POWs still being tortured and abused under Azerbaijani captivity, this war is not over.

We must never stop fighting until we secure justice for Artsakh and for our POWs.
