The Greek minority living in Armenia, mostly descendants of genocide survivors from Pontus, are already fighting alongside the Armenian Army, said the president of the Greek community of Armenia, Maria Lazareva.
“When we have a Turkish neighbor, we must be ready for war at any moment․ Of course, hostilities are not new in recent years. We had a four-day war in April 2016, from which Azerbaijan did not achieve much. So we knew that revenge would not be long in coming. And of course the hostilities, because of the defeat of the Azeris in July this year on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, had to continue. What is happening now in our lands is not called mere hostilities, but war, because of its extent and methods of battle. The point is that the current war is not only taking place between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and is not only taking place in Nagorno-Karabakh, but also in Armenia.”
