Children's Lives in Jeopardy: Blockade Imposes Irreversible Impact on Artsakh's Youth, Warns FM

The ongoing blockade of the Lachin Corridor is having profound and irreversible consequences on the lives of children residing in Artsakh, according to a statement by Ani Badalyan, the Spokeswoman of Armenia's Foreign Ministry.


Following the Azerbaijani aggression in September 2022, which saw the displacement of at least 1,427 children and violations of their basic rights, the situation for young lives in the region remains dire. Badalyan took to her Twitter page to emphasize the harrowing impact on children's lives, citing a UN report on Children Affected by Conflict in 2022.



The ongoing blockade of the Lachin Corridor, which connects Artsakh with Armenia, has escalated the challenges for the children of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh). The consequences include family separations, displacement, and psychological distress, painting a grim picture of their reality. A startling statistic underscores the extent of the crisis, with approximately 20,000 children now deprived of reliable education, as highlighted by Badalyan in another Twitter post.


As the blockade persists, international attention remains focused on the plight of these vulnerable young lives, with growing calls for urgent action to alleviate their suffering and secure their fundamental rights.
