FaviconUkraine 'more united than before' Russian invasion, journalism student says 1 Oct 2022, 5:36 am

Elina Konavalyuk and her family had a relaxed if not indifferent attitude towards Russia before all this. Some family members had even felt a bit nostalgic for the USSR over the years. But no more. Not after living under attack by Russian soldiers who occupied the Kherson region of Ukraine early in the war, sleeping months, frightened, in a basement and Konavalyuk, her mother and grandparents finally making a dangerous escape from their homeland.

"It was a fight for survival," she said about living under Russian occupation last winter, something she had never imagined could happen to her or anyone she knew. The port city of Kherson, just north of Crimea, was the first major city to fall to the Russians in their 2022 war. "I don’t have that adrenaline right now. Then all my thoughts were just about standing in line for six hours for a slice of bread. You would see your neighbors’ corpses lying outside your house. It was both mentally and physically so hard because you needed to acquire new skills just to survive."

UKRAINE HAS 'ACCELERATED' NATO APPLICATION IN WAKE OF RUSSIA ANNEXING TERRITORIES, ZELENSKYY SAYS

Last winter and spring, I posted some of what Konavalyuk shared with me during her time underground, never using her name out of fear for her safety. And in fact, she says Russian border guards checked her phone and interrogated her intensely on the way out, suspicious as they are of each fleeing Ukrainian. Her "Diary of Survival" memoirs read like poetry with descriptions of what it feels like to forget the smell of fresh laundry and the taste of jam.

Konavalyuk is a journalism student. Documenting what was going on in her hometown and teaching herself what blasts correspond to what sort of weapons fire in order to know when to run, how to react to the constant noise and bombardment all around her, she says, helped her get through the long and terrifying months. Now, in the safety of Europe, she finds it hard sometimes, she says, to see people enjoying the worry-free life of those who are not living in a state of war.

FURTHER TROUBLE IN RUSSIA’S BACKYARD AS RECENT FIGHTING BETWEEN ALLIES CREATES NEW HEADACHE FOR PUTIN

And Friday was a particularly somber day for people like Konavalyuk who hail from the Ukrainian territories Russia just declared its own, annexing Kherson and three other regions that together account for fifteen percent of Ukraine’s territory. The formal annexation followed what has widely been called illegitimate referendums. 

"People were forced to vote at gunpoint, rounded up on the street. They came to their homes and threatened them," Konavalyuk said. "So it’s very easy to refute this referendum." Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking in the Kremlin’s chandeliered Georgievski Hall whose shining parquet floors seemed in striking contrast to the grim-faced government officials who filled the room, said Russia would never give those territories back. Konavalyuk has a different view, that Ukraine will get its land back, but she says, the "fact that this will now be considered an attack on Russia complicates things," she says. "It will be more difficult for us to get back the Kherson region and the rest of the occupied territories."

When I ask who will do the fighting, who will get Kherson back, she says, "Different Ukrainians from different parts are fighting for Kherson. The most incredible thing for me is that Ukraine is now more united than before. There’s no difference at all right now—if you’re from the South or from the West. In other words, we are united as one people in returning our lands. We are also one people."

FaviconNorth Korea fires fourth ballistic missile in one week after Vice President Harris' gaffe 1 Oct 2022, 3:01 am

North Korea fired its fourth ballistic missile in one week, following Vice President Kamala Harris making a mistake during her prepared remarks at the Korean Peninsula's Demilitarized Zone (DMZ)

The missile was fired into the East Sea on Saturday, South Korea's military told Yonhap.

It's the fourth missile fired by North Korea in the past seven days.

The provocation comes after Harris said on Thursday that the United States has a "strong alliance" with "the Republic of North Korea."

VICE PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS COMMENDS US ALLIANCE WITH 'REPUBLIC OF NORTH KOREA' IN DMZ SPEECH GAFFE

Harris intended to refer to the Republic of Korea, which is South Korea's official name.

"I cannot state enough that the commitment of the United States to the defense of the Republic of Korea is iron-clad, and that we will do everything in our power to ensure that it has meaning in every way that the words suggest," Harris said when visiting the DMZ.

VP KAMALA HARRIS VISITS JAPAN TO DISCUSS TAIWANESE SECURITY SITUATION: OFFICIAL

North Korea also fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea within hours of Harris leaving South Korea on Thursday.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on Wednesday that the missile tests are "not unusual," adding that it wouldn't stop Harris from going to the DMZ.

"As you know, North Korea has a history of doing these types of tests," Harris said.

Fox News' Andrea Vacchiano and the Associated Press contributed to this report.

FaviconIranian authorities arrest celebrities, artists, foreign nationals during protest crackdown: report 1 Oct 2022, 12:57 am

Iranian authorities have intensified their crackdown against protesters in the wake of Mahsa Amini’s death, and the Intelligence Ministry announced the arrest of nine foreign nationals as well as journalists and celebrities. 

"They [the regime] want to silence them. The Achilles’ heel of this regime has always been its people," Lisa Daftari, a Middle East expert and editor-in-chief of The Foreign Desk, told Fox News Digital. 

"They know that the people have reached a tipping point and are fueled by the disenchantment.

"They are literally putting their lives on the line to tell the world that they do not want this regime. The regime has doubled down on using any force needed to quash these protests. By rounding up journalists, poets, singers and celebrities, they are trying to make an example out of them to stop the protests." 

IRAN PROTESTERS INSIST ISLAMIC REGIME ‘DOES NOT REPRESENT’ THE PEOPLE IN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

Protests started at the funeral for Amini, 22, after her death while in the custody of the morality police. The police claim she merely fell into a coma following her arrest. Her family and some witnesses say they saw evidence police had beaten her.

As of Friday, the protests reportedly spread to over 140 Iranian cities, with at least 83 killed and 3,000 arrested across 31 provinces, according to the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, which released an update Friday on its monitoring of the protests. 

The regime sought to quell the protests by cutting off access to social media in more than a dozen cities in recent days, a move that has precluded the widespread killing of protesters in previous instances of unrest.

TRIBUNAL DECLARES IRAN COMMITTED 'CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY DURING CRACKDOWN OF 2019 PROTESTS

Police over the weekend arrested Niloofar Hamedi, the journalist who first reported Amini’s death, and have arrested 28 other journalists, including several from the Iranian reformist newspaper Shargh, according to the Committee for Protecting Journalists. 

The Foreign Desk reported that most of the journalists were taken during post-midnight raids on their homes with electronic devices confiscated. 

IRAN POLICE WARN THEY WILL CRACK DOWN WITH ‘ALL THEIR MIGHT’ AS PROTESTS NEAR THIRD WEEK

Even prominent artists, including poet Mona Borzouei and singer Shervin Hajipour, have been arrested after posting media in support of the protests. The regime has accused foreign nations of stirring up violence through these celebrities and journalists. 

But the world has shown support for the protests. The U.S. responded to Amini’s death by sanctioning the morality police and seven other Iranian security officials "responsible for suppressing nonviolent protests" in the country, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced Sept. 22. He directly blamed the morality police for Amini’s death. 

"The people of Iran are getting support from all over the world, especially on social media," Daftari said. "Iranians inside Iran with large followings are using their popularity and platforms to post support for the protests and that’s why the regime is targeting them. They want to silence them."

FaviconMyanmar's military government accuses rebel forces of shooting at passenger plane 30 Sep 2022, 11:27 pm

Myanmar’s military government accused rebel forces in the eastern state of Kayah of firing at a passenger plane as it was preparing to land Friday, wounding a passenger who was hit by a bullet that penetrated the fuselage. Rebel groups denied the allegation.

State television MRTV said the Myanmar National Airlines plane, carrying 63 passengers, was hit as it was about to land in Loikaw, the capital of the eastern state of Kayah, also known as Karenni.

It said Maj. Gen. Zaw Min Tun, a spokesperson for Myanmar’s ruling military council, said the shooting was carried out by "terrorists" belonging to the Karenni National Progressive Party, an ethnic minority militia battling the government, and their allies in the People’s Defense Force, an armed pro-democracy group.

"I want to say that this kind of attack on the passenger plane is a war crime," he told MRTV by phone. "People and organizations who want peace need to condemn this issue all round."

MYANMAR: BANGLADESH SET TO START REPATRIATING ROHINGYA

MRTV said the bullet entered the plane’s lower fuselage as it was flying at an altitude of 3,500 feet about four miles north of the airport. It said the injured passenger was taken to a hospital.

The state news agency released photos it said were of the bullet hole and the passenger being treated.

Myanmar National Airlines’ office in Loikaw announced that all flights to the city were canceled indefinitely.

Kayah state has experienced intense conflict between the military and local resistance groups since the army seized power last year, overthrowing the democratically elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi.

The Feb. 1, 2021, takeover was met with peaceful nationwide protests, but after the army and police cracked down with lethal force on street demonstrators opposing military rule, thousands of civilians formed militia units as part of a People’s Defense Force to fight back.

The PDF groups are allied with well-established armed ethnic minority groups such as the Karenni, the Karen and the Kachin which have been fighting the central government for more than half a century, seeking greater autonomy in border regions.

Khu Daniel, a leader of the Karenni National Progressive Party, denied the government's accusation and said his party had not ordered its armed wing, the Karenni Army, to shoot at civilians or passenger planes.

"The military always blames other organizations for the shootings. Our armed wing didn’t shoot the plane this morning," he told The Associated Press.

UN INVESTIGATOR: GENOCIDE STILL TAKING PLACE IN MYANMAR

Government spokesperson Zaw Min Tun said it has been providing security around the airport and accused the KNPP and PDF of creating chaos in Loikaw by firing artillery into the city and the area near the airport.

Since the military seized power, there have been frequent clashes in Kayah between the army and local anti-government guerrillas near a base belonging to the government’s 54th Light Infantry Battalion, located south of the airport. State-run media reported last Christmas that the KNPP and PDF attacked a Myanmar National Airlines passenger plane with four 107mm rockets, which exploded about 2,000 meters east of the airport, injuring no one.

The Karenni Nationalities Defense Force, another ethnic rebel group, earlier advised against traveling on Myanmar National Airlines because it is state-owned, so its revenues go to the military, and the army uses it to supply its forces.

The information officer of the Karenni Nationalities Defense Force, who spoke on condition of anonymity to safeguard his personal security, called the government's allegation about Friday's shooting "nothing more than defamatory propaganda against the revolutionary forces by the Military Council."

MYANMAR TRAGEDY EXPOSES THE DIRTY UNDERBELLY OF 'GREEN ENERGY'

"The runway and the area of the airfield are surrounded by infantry battalions and high security areas. So to say that PDFs attacked the plane is only an accusation," he said.

FaviconVirus kills 100K cows and buffaloes in India, livelihoods threatened 30 Sep 2022, 10:56 pm

A viral disease has killed nearly 100,000 cows and buffaloes in India and sickened over 2 million more.

The outbreak has triggered devastating income losses for cattle farmers since the disease not only results in deaths but can also lead to decreased milk production, emaciated animals, and birth issues.

The disease, called lumpy skin disease, is spread by insects that drink blood like mosquitoes and ticks. Infected cows and buffaloes get fevers and develop lumps on their skin.

TERRORISM IN INDIA AND HOW IT AFFECTS US

Farmers have experienced severe losses from extreme weather events over the past year: a record-shattering heat wave in India reduced wheat yields in April, insufficient rainfall in eastern states like Jharkhand state shriveled parched winter crops such as pulses, and an unusually intense September rainfall has damaged rice in the north.

And now, the virus has spread to at least 15 states with the number of cow and buffalo deaths nearly doubling in three weeks, the Press Trust of India news agency reported.

The contagion spreading among cattle is having a disproportionate impact on small farmers, many of whom have insulated themselves from the shocks of climate change by rearing cattle for milk, said Devinder Sharma, an agriculture policy expert in northern Chandigarh city.

"It's a serious, serious issue and this (disease) … has been growing since the last couple of years," he said, adding that the government figures were likely an undercount of the actual death toll from the disease.

The first cases in South Asia were detected in 2019, and it has since spread to India, China, and Nepal. It was first recorded in Zambia in 1929 and has extended through Africa and more recently to parts of Europe.

Dairy is among the largest agricultural commodities in India, employing 80 million people and contributing to 5% of its economy, per federal data. It's the world's largest milk producer, making up more than a fifth of global production — but exports are only a fraction of this.

To try and protect the industry, authorities are vaccinating healthy cows using a shot designed for a similar disease while efforts are underway to develop a more effective vaccine.

INDIA ASKS PAKISTAN TO CURB TERROR GROUPS TARGETING INDIA

India's vast hinterland is now punctuated by mass graves of cows. In some places, the carcasses rot in the open and the pained cries of sick animals are resound in villages. Western Rajasthan state has seen the worst impact: 60,000 cattle dead and nearly 1.4 million sickened.

"The disease is contagious. It’s now shifting from the west to the east," warned Narendra Mohan Singh, a director at Rajasthan state’s Animal Husbandry Department.

In bordering Uttar Pradesh state, India's most populous, the trade and movement of cattle with neighboring states has been curbed. But farmers like Amarnath Sharma in Milkipur village say they have been left in the dark. Three of his five cows are sick and, while he has heard about the viral disease, he doesn't know how to help his livestock.

"If these animals don't get treatment, they'll die," he said.

INDIAN GIRL, 10, GRANTED ABORTION AFTER RAPE

Farmers in affected states, like the Himalayan Himachal Pradesh, have also urged the government for financial aid.

Meanwhile, a study of the lumpy skin disease virus' genetic makeup found that it was very different from previous versions, said Vinod Scaria, a scientist at the Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology in New Delhi.

Viruses evolve all the time and not all these changes are harmful to health. But Scaria, who is one of the study's authors, said it exposed the need for continuous monitoring and tracking of diseases since it wasn't clear how the virus evolved in the past two years.

"If you had continuous surveillance, you would be prepared," he said.

FaviconUnlikely family? Cows in Germany adopt wild boar piglet 30 Sep 2022, 9:59 pm

A cow herd in Germany has gained an unlikely following, after adopting a lone wild boar piglet.

Farmer Friedrich Stapel told the dpa news agency that he spotted the piglet among the herd in the central German community of Brevoerde about three weeks ago. It had likely lost its group when they crossed a nearby river.

Stapel said while he knows what extensive damage wild boars can cause, he can't bring himself to chase the animal away, dpa reported Thursday.

The local hunter has been told not to shoot the piglet — nicknamed Frieda — and in winter Stapel plans to put it in the shed with the mother cows.

"To leave it alone now would be unfair," he told dpa.

FaviconEU wants European nations to crack down on visas for Russian citizens 30 Sep 2022, 9:41 pm

The European Union’s top migration official on Friday urged the bloc's 27 nations to clamp down on issuing visas to Russian citizens amid heightened security concerns over Russian President Vladimir Putin’s nuclear threats and his annexation of parts of Ukraine.

"This is clearly an escalation and that means also an escalation of the security threat towards the European Union," Migration Commissioner Ylva Johansson said.

She urged EU countries to enforce more stringent checks on Russian citizens and deny documents to anyone who might pose a threat.

FINLAND CLOSES ITS BORDER TO RUSSIANS WITH TOURIST VISAS

Over 194,000 Russian citizens have fled to neighboring Georgia, Kazakhstan and Finland — often by car, bicycle or on foot — since Putin last week announced a partial mobilization of reservists to bolster his troops in Ukraine. In Russia, the vast majority of men under 65 are registered as reservists.

Johansson said EU authorities must stop short-term visa holders from Russia from renewing them in Europe. "If a Russian person intends to stay longer than 90 days in the EU, he or she should not be issued a visa," she told reporters.

Johansson also said Russians who have fled the country should not be allowed to apply for visas abroad.

"They have to do that from their home country, Russia," she said, but underlined that they should be allowed in for humanitarian reasons, or other exceptional circumstances.

Johansson also urged countries to reassess whether already valid visas should have been issued. She said that none of the measures the European Commission, the EU’s executive branch, is recommending would stop Russian citizens from applying for asylum in Europe.

BALTIC NATIONS END ASYLUM FOR RUSSIANS FLEEING MILITARY DRAFT

"The right to have a short term visa into the EU is not a fundamental right. It’s privilege. The right to apply for asylum is a fundamental right," Johansson said.

FaviconRussian embassy in NYC vandalized as Putin annexes Ukrainian territory 30 Sep 2022, 9:20 pm

The Russian embassy in New York City was vandalized Friday as Russian President Vladimir Putin declared that he would seize four regions in Ukraine.

The embassy did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s questions regarding the incident, but according to video footage, the building appears to have been hit with a large amount of red paint. 

UKRAINE HAS 'ACCELERATED' NATO APPLICATION IN WAKE OF RUSSIA ANNEXING TERRITORIES, ZELENSKYY SAYS

It was unclear if the paint was intended to depict anything in particular or if it was indiscriminately thrown at the embassy’s front walls and entryway. 

New Yorkers passing by stopped to look at the vandalism, with some remarking on their surprise that authorities had not yet cleaned it up. 

A video of the damage to the building’s exterior was posted to social media just moments after Putin took the stage to address top officials at the Georgievsky Hall of the Great Kremlin Palace in Moscow. 

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN ANNOUNCES ANNEXATION OF 4 UKRAINIAN TERRITORIES AFTER 'SHAM' REFERENDUMS

Putin claimed that after a series of referendums that concluded this week — which Western officials and Kyiv have condemned as a "sham" — Moscow had proven it had public support in its quest to illegally annex the Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions. 

Moscow-instated officials in the regions claimed to have garnered 87% of civilian support in Kherson, 93% in Zaporizhzhia, 98% in Luhansk and 99% in Donetsk.

Putin took aim at the West and Kyiv in an aggressive speech Friday and vowed to use "all available means" if the four regions, which the international community still view as a part of Ukraine, are attacked. 

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenksyy has said his forces will keep fighting against Russian occupation until all of Ukraine is liberated, including territory that Russia has self-proclaimed as its own.

FaviconSweden lifts arms embargo against Turkey, moves closer to becoming NATO member 30 Sep 2022, 9:06 pm

Would-be NATO member Sweden on Friday announced it will allow exports of arms to Turkey, which had threatened to block the Scandinavian nation’s application to join the 30-member defense alliance.

The decision means that Sweden, which has sought NATO membership along with neighboring Finland, will lift an arms embargo it had imposed on Ankara in 2019 after Turkey’s military operation against the Kurdish militia known as the YPG in Syria.

NATO INVITES SWEDEN, FINLAND BECOME MEMBERS IN WAKE OF RUSSIA'S UKRAINE WAR

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had threatened to block the Nordic pair's membership, insisting they change their stance on Kurdish rebel groups that Turkey considers terrorists and lift the arms embargo on Turkey. NATO operates by consensus so Turkey needs to approve.

"Sweden’s application for membership in NATO greatly strengthens the defense and security policy reasons for granting the export of military equipment to other member states, including Turkey," the Inspectorate for Strategic Products, a Swedish administrative authority, said in a statement.

Once-neutral Finland and Sweden are abandoning what in Sweden’s case has been 200 years of military nonalignment, driven to join NATO’s mutual defense pact in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and its continuing war there.

NATO MAKES THE RIGHT CALL ON SWEDEN, FINLAND IN A BIG, BOLD MOVE

Turkey’s parliament has yet to ratify Sweden and Finland’s membership in NATO, and Friday's step was widely seen as aimed at securing Ankara’s approval. A delegation from Sweden is expected in Ankara next week to discuss Turkish requests for the extradition of figures wanted by Turkey.

FaviconArmenia turns to US for support, security official accuses Azerbaijan of using 'force' to resolve disputes 30 Sep 2022, 8:55 pm

Following deadly clashes with Azerbaijan, Armenia has found greater support from the U.S. than it has from its historic ally Russia, with officials "concerned" about Russia's continued supply of weapons to its rival. 

"[The international community] should take the steps, as we see [the] United States has taken: [the] United States has been very direct," Armen Grigoryan, Secretary of the Security Council of Armenia, told Fox News Digital in an exclusive interview. "They called [for] withdrawal of Azerbaijani forces from sovereign territory of Armenia, and we think that the international community should condemn the use of force as it was done by Azerbaijan, and the international community should support the diplomatic engagement."

Fighting broke out between Armenia and Azerbaijan on Sept. 13 when Azeri forces launched an attack against their western neighbor. The attack led to about 50 deaths on both sides, and each nation's officials accused the others of provocation over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region. 

Nagorno-Karabakh, populated mostly by Armenians, was an autonomous region inside Azerbaijan during the Soviet era. Historic tensions between Christian Armenians and mostly Muslim Azerbaijanis exploded in the final years of the Soviet Union. The mountainous area is around the size of Delaware.

RUSSIA'S NEIGHBORS SEE SURGE OF MIGRANTS AS MEN FLEE PUTIN'S DRAFT

In an address to the United Nations, Azerbaijan Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov countered Armenian claims of aggression by accusing the Armenians of committing "ethnic cleansing," "illegal settlement" and "blatant violation of international humanitarian law" over the past 30 years. 

Bayramov insisted that Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's speech to the United Nations General Assembly was "yet another evidence demonstrating" a desire to focus on "confrontation instead of normalization." 

"In Azerbaijan, we believe that our region has seen enough confrontation, destruction and suffering," the minister said. "It is high time for both our nations to engage fully and wholeheartedly in the post-conflict normalization, so we can finally turn over the tragic page of our history and start building a better future for our children."

"The commitment of [the] Azerbaijan side is there," he continued. "We hope that Armenia will finally reciprocate constructively and engage genuinely into the negotiations."

IRAN PROTESTS: DEATH TOLL CONTINUES TO CLIMB AS REPORTER WHO FIRST HIGHLIGHTED AMINI'S DEATH IS ARRESTED

NATO member Turkey, an ally of Azerbaijan, also laid blame for violence on Armenia. Turkish President Recep Tayipp Erdogan earlier this month expressed support for Azerbaijan, saying that Turkey and Azerbaijan are "brotherly … in all matters" and accusing Armenia of "unacceptable" actions, but he struck a more conciliatory tone in his speech before the United Nations General Assembly when he said he believed peace was possible between the two countries.

Russian President Vladimir Putin moved swiftly to broker a peace deal, but even as Armenia and Azerbaijan test the limits of patience in holding to that deal, Armenia has claimed that Russia continues to supply Azerbaijan with the very weapons used in the attack. 

Grigoryan said that Russia’s role as an Azeri weapons supplier is "nothing new" and a "long story" that Armenia has raised with Moscow. 

"It's public information: Yes, it's true," he insisted. "And that concerns us very much, and it's not a new story." 

Armenia has historically turned to Russia as one of its most significant allies due to the fact that both are Christian-majority nations in an otherwise Muslim region. Russia has strong economic and military ties with Armenia, and the city of Gyumri, Armenia, is home to a Russian military base, but Russia has also worked to develop cooperation with energy-rich Azerbaijan. Russia’s actions appear to mainly serve its desire to avoid distractions as the invasion in Ukraine drags on and grows more difficult for Moscow.

RUSSIA STRIKES DEAL WITH TALIBAN TO SUPPLY FUEL AND FOOD TO AFGHANISTAN

Instead, Armenia has found more explicit support from the U.S. after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi led a congressional delegation to visit the nation in the wake of Azerbaijan’s attack. Pelosi denounced Azerbaijan’s attack as "illegal," and the Azeris responded by dismissing her visit as "propaganda" filled with "unsubstantiated and unfair accusations." 

"We strongly condemn those attacks, we in our delegation on behalf of Congress, which threatens prospects for a much-needed peace agreement," said Pelosi, D-Calif., adding that the conflict "was initiated by the Azeris, and there has to be recognition of that." The delegation included Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J.; Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif.; and Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif.

The Azerbaijan Mission to the United Nations did not respond to a Fox News Digital request for comment. 

Earlier this month, Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with the prime minister of Armenia and the president of Azerbaijan. Grigoryan said the U.S. played a "crucial" role in preventing further escalation in the region and called for the international community to follow America’s lead to seek further diplomatic engagement. Armenia said prior to the High-Level Week at the United Nations that it would raise the issue of Azerbaijan’s attack to the Security Council. 

HUNDREDS OF KIDS FROM EAST UKRAINE STRANDED IN RUSSIAN CAMPS

"Our assessment continues to be that Azerbaijan continues to aim for larger, further occupied territories in Armenia and further escalating the situation in the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan," Grigoryan explained. "And they see in [the] 21st century solving the problem with … force. This is very concerning." 

Bayramov recently met with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to discuss cooperation with the organization, and Guterres made clear his desire for Armenia and Azerbaijan to find a peaceful solution to their conflict. 

"Armenia is ready for diplomatic engagement, but we also publicly said we will not negotiate … when the gun is put on [our] head," Grigoryan stressed. "This is not our way of negotiating, and we are sure that the more active engagement of the international community in our region would be helpful to bring more stability and also peace." 

Fox News' Laura Taglianetti and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
