Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo, known for his Oscar and Emmy nominations, has joined the growing voices seeking to shed light on the Azerbaijani genocidal blockade affecting Nagorno-Karabakh Armenians. In a social media post, Ruffalo echoed the concerns expressed by Kim Kardashian and called on U.S. President Joe Biden to intervene and prevent what some fear could become another Armenian Genocide.

The Azerbaijani government's actions in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) have raised international alarm, with humanitarian and human rights organizations accusing them of imposing a devastating blockade on the region. This blockade, which has reportedly led to a dire humanitarian crisis, is seen as an attempt to subjugate the Nagorno-Karabakh Armenians and further exacerbate their suffering.

Kim Kardashian, an outspoken advocate for Armenian rights, recently reached out to President Biden, urging him to take immediate action to prevent the potential escalation of violence and atrocities in the region. She shared her plea on social media, drawing attention to the gravity of the situation.

Mark Ruffalo, widely recognized for his activism on various social and environmental issues, has now thrown his support behind Kardashian's call for action. Ruffalo highlighted the apparent lack of media coverage on the issue, emphasizing its significance and the urgency of addressing it.

“This is a serious issue that the media is not covering,” Ruffalo said on social media, while sharing Kardashian's post.

The actor's involvement highlights the growing concern among international figures about the situation in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) and the need for a diplomatic resolution to the crisis. Many fear that the blockade and ongoing tensions in the region could lead to further violence and loss of life.

The United States, along with other world powers, has a vested interest in preventing further escalation of conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh and ensuring the protection of civilians in the region. As calls for intervention gain momentum, it remains to be seen how the Biden administration will respond to the pleas of individuals like Mark Ruffalo and Kim Kardashian, who are using their platforms to raise awareness of the dire situation facing the Armenians of Artsakh.
