Aliyev. An unheard appeal which was followed by the ceasefire imposed by Moscow. Russia is one of the main negotiators of the truce: “It would be a mistake to postpone the resumption of the negotiation process between the parties involved in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict”, said the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, after meeting his Armenian counterpart, Zohrab Mnatsakanyan with whom he discussed “how to move forward”.

I’m so honored to be part of today’s global effort to support the ArmeniaFund. I’ve been speaking out about the current situation in Armenia and Artsakh and having conversations with so many others to bring further awareness to the crisis that we cannot allow to advance. My thoughts and prayers are with the brave men, women and children. I want everyone to remember that despite the distance that separates us, we are not limited by borders and we are one global Armenian nation together. The ArmeniaFund is directly helping those that have been impacted during this critical time with humanitarian aid through food, shelter, and medical care. I will be donating $1M to assist their efforts on the ground and invite you to join me. Whether you are helping with just raising awareness and posting on social media or donating just $1, every bit helps. Let’s make this our most successful fundraiser ever. Thank you so much.
