It has been confirmed that the co-founder of the FUTURE ARMENIAN initiative Ruben Vardanyan has been held captive by the Azerbaijani authorities while trying to leave Artsakh. Ruben Vardanyan’s wife Veronika Zonabend reported:
“My husband, Ruben Vardanyan, the philanthropist, businessman and former minister of state of Artsakh, has been arrested and held captive by the Azerbaijani authorities at the border as he attempted to leave this morning, along with thousands of Armenians escaping Azerbaijani occupation. Ruben stood with the Artsakh people during the 10-month blockade and suffered along with them in the struggle for survival. I ask for your prayers and support to ensure my husband’s safe release”.
