Henrikh Mkhitaryan, former captain of the Armenian national football (soccer) team and attacking midfielder for Inter Milan, has issued a heartfelt plea for immediate action to guarantee unimpeded humanitarian access through the Lachin Corridor. The corridor's ongoing blockade has left over 30,000 children and their families in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) grappling with eight months of adversity and deprivation.


Mkhitaryan's passionate appeal sheds light on the dire circumstances endured by those affected. Stranded in their homeland, the people of Artsakh find themselves on the precipice of famine and a full-blown humanitarian catastrophe. The blockade has severely restricted their access to life-saving essentials, including medicine, food, and other critical supplies.


With over 30,000 children and their families facing this distressing reality, Mkhitaryan emphasizes the urgency of the situation. "The heart-breaking reality of people starving to death is a catastrophe that demands immediate action," he declares. He underscores that the well-being and future of these children hinge on putting an end to the ongoing struggles and hostilities.


Mkhitaryan's plea underscores the paramount importance of principled and unimpeded humanitarian access through the Lachin corridor. His poignant words carry a resounding message, echoing the sentiments of many who advocate for the alleviation of human suffering and the restoration of normalcy to the region.


In a heartfelt Facebook post, Mkhitaryan stated, "Children need an end to this war to begin to heal and recover. Principled and unimpeded humanitarian access should be ensured across the Lachin corridor." As an influential figure, both on and off the field, Mkhitaryan's impassioned call for action reverberates, emphasizing the urgency of the situation and the pressing need to address the plight of those affected by the ongoing blockade.
