As an Armenian, I appreciate going on Hubski and seeing this. My family is in Stepanakert where the Azeri artillery landed, they all evac'd and drove a few hours out of the way safely. My uncle was on his way to Belarus for vacation this morning and was told all adults under 55 years old are to stay in place in event of re-conscription if they're not already currently drafted.

I can probably contribute a lot of different articles and information for exposition on the subject but I just hopped on to say thanks for the coverage. It's hard to find accurate reportage from internationally recognized news outlets, and if I post an objective (if still inaccurate or shallow) Reuters or BBC report on my personal social media I get flamed for being a turncoat and not recognizing an attempted reanimation of the Armenian genocide :[

    I get flamed for being a turncoat and not recognizing an attempted reanimation of the Armenian genocide :

Turkey's F-16 fighter downs Armenia's Su-25 from Azerbaijani territory — Yerevan](https://tass.com/emergencies/1206495](https://tass.com/emergencies/1206495))

Turkey supplying close air support for Azerbaijan is not a good look for a country that refuses to acknowledge all the Armenian blood on its hands. This could turn into Yugoslavia II because fuckin' hell what country doesn't want a good old-fashioned Smurf helmet military adventure right now to distract the homeland from all the shit we're mired in...

mk I keep trying to fix the link and it keeps readding it over and over...

Anybody whose ethnicity gets a "-genocide" autocomplete from Google gets to be jumpy.

I sincerely hope this settles down in a non-shitty way. I was missing my bottle of Ararat yesterday.

I hope the best for your family.

It looks like Armenia is in a real hard spot and some will suffer terribly.
