Armenia: Demonstrators appeal to Russia to help return prisoners and bodies from Azerbaijan

Armenia, Yerevan

Demonstrators marched to the Russian embassy in Yerevan on Sunday to appeal for Moscow's help in speeding up the return of captured soldiers and bodies of those killed in the fighting with Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh.

A letter to the Russian ambassador to Armenia, Sergey Kopyrkin, asking him to facilitate the exchange of prisoners and bodies, was read out before the march near the Opera House.

"In this situation, we are aware that there is no authority in Armenia. A capable authority that can solve the problem of exchanging prisoners of war, negotiating, whether with an ally or with and enemy. And in this situation we are trying somehow, all people who are not indifferent, people from creative professions, including helping to make the voice of the parents of dead soldiers and officers, prisoners of war to be heard," said Mger Mkrtchyan, a film director.

Protests demanding the return of prisoners and bodies of soldiers have been held in the country over the past few days. According to Nagorno-Karabakh ombudsman Artak Beglaryan, as of November 27 between 50 and 60 Armenian soldiers were being held in Azerbaijan. Several others were missing.

According to media reports, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan held several meetings with the parents of the soldiers who did not return home and promised to do everything possible to resolve the issue.

After six weeks of hostilities, Armenia and Azerbaijan signed a Russian-brokered deal to end the fighting over the Nagorno-Karabakh region on November 9.

Though the joint statement does state the need to return bodies and prisoners of war to both Armenia and Azerbaijan, it contains no deadline for the process.
