Youths for Karabakh: Students, young people in Armenia, Diaspora express solidarity with troops

Several youth and student organizations from Armenia and its Diaspora express their solidarity with their compatriots fighting off Azerbaijani aggression in Nagorno-Karabakh frontlines.

The official page of the Yerevan State University (YSU) reads that since April 4 active members of the YSU’s combat training club and student council have recruited those volunteer students who passed their military service in Artsakh. More than 100 students, who had their military service in Nagorno-Karabakh, have been registered, and many more students, who have served in the army, have applied for recruitment. They also gather essential items and canned food to be sent to the border communities of Artsakh.

As many as 50 volunteer students of the American University of Armenia are actively translating official news.

Meanwhile, anti-Azerbaijani demonstrations have been held by many young people in Lebanon, Greece, and Paris.

In particular, in Lebanon, despite the absence of the Azerbaijani Embassy, young people distributed leaflets in Arabic and Armenian on dangerous developments and Azerbaijani atrocities taking place at the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Lebanese universities and schools are also actively involved in supportive actions. According to representatives of the local Armenian community, the Armenian community is following the Arab media, offering reliable information reported by Armenian media.

In Thessaloniki and Athens, Greek-Armenians have held protests and marches led by members of the youth union of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation party (ARF, Dashnaktsutyun).

The protest organized by Armenian young people in Stockholm, Sweden, also aimed to draw the world’s attention to atrocities perpetrated by Azeri soldiers, especially in the village of Talish in northeastern Karabakh.
