“The Armenian Assembly condemns the illegal abduction of Ruben Vardanyan by Azerbaijan at an illegal checkpoint in the Lachin corridor on September 27. The charges he faces are beyond absurd. Ruben Vardanyan’s humanitarian contributions have been invaluable for Armenia and the international community. He abandoned his normal life and went to Artsakh to promote its development and to face the hardships resulting from the war and blockade along with residents of the republic. We believe that justice will prevail, and Ruben Vardanyan will be released soon. We express our deepest support to his wife, Veronika Zonabend, his family and friends. Once again, we urge you to be active and appeal to all relevant authorities in your countries of residence.”
