  • by Western Armenia, June 10, 2024 in Politics

A group of activists held a protest in  Bonn City.

Calling on the government of Baku to immediately release the  illegally detained Armenian political prisoners, including Ruben Vardanyan.

The delegates of the countries participating in the UN Framework Convention “On Climate Change”, gathered in Bonn, were also called upon to oppose the holding of the Climate Assembly in Baku.

The Baku government has announced that the assembly will be dedicated to peace, while this is impossible as long as Ruben Vardanyan and other Armenian prisoners continue to be held in Baku prison cells.

“Pretending that this is not the case will mean that Baku continues to carry out genocide against Armenians", noted the participants of the action.

They also note that Baku is not limited to atrocities against Armenians, but also carries out illegal actions against its own people.

According to a Human Rights Watch report, "at least 25 independent journalists and civil activists have been arrested in the past year, and all of them remain in prison."
