This man is cleansing or disinfecting the part on the map where Nagorno Karabakh is. He is... 25/01/2021 | 13:13:36 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, during the time of the global pandemic, on September 27, 2020, supported by Turkey, Azerbaijan launched large-scale military actions against the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh.
