Victory and only victory is the ending that we see at the end of this struggle, Pashinyan says

Victory and only victory is the ending that we see at the end of this struggle, Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan stated in a televised address to the nation.

"For almost a week now, the Armenian nation in Artsakh and in Armenia has been resisting the terrorist offensive unleashed by Azerbaijan and Turkey. The scale of the offensive is unprecedented: the enemy is attacking with such a scale that according to military experts has not happened very often during the 21st century in any corner of the world or any of the conflict zones," Pashinyan said.

"Hundreds of tanks, and armored vehicles, thousands of projectiles and missiles, dozens of aircrafts, hundreds of UAVs and tens of thousand of infantrymen have been attacking the Artsakh Defense Army positions across the entire Line of Contact," Pashinyan said.

Pashinyan said analysis show that between 150 to 200 Azerbaijani soldiers are attacking a single military unit of the Artsakh Defense Army. And such attacks are repeated several times during the day, accompanied by missiles, artillery, armored vehicles, aircraft and UAVs.

"Our servicemen testify that Syrian mercenaries and terrorists; special units of the Turkish Armed Forces are deployed on the ground together with the military units of Azerbaijan’s Armed Forces.
There are 150 high-ranking Turkish officers leading the military operations on the part of Azerbaijan. This description in itself shows that intense battles are taking place on the frontline.

"We are facing a fateful chapter in our history. The objective the Azerbaijani-Turkish bandits pursue is not to resolve a military or a military-political task. They are not here to deal with Karabakh or the Karabakh issue. They have not come with the objective of capturing territories, villages, cities. Their key target is the Armenian nation. Their objective is to carry on with their genocidal policy. And they have set themselves the task of bringing to completion the Armenian Genocide.

But I wish to state now that the Armenian, the citizen of the Republic of Armenia, the citizen of the Republic of Artsakh is not an eternal traveler on the road to Der Zor. Today, more than ever, we are bound to our identity and our homeland through an unwavering conviction to protect our rights," Pashinyan stressed.
