Armenia lawmaker wounded on Karabakh frontline

PanARMENIAN.Net - President of Yerkrapah Volunteer Union, lawmaker from Armenia's ruling My Step bloc Sasun Mikayelyan has been wounded on the Nagorno-Karabakh frontline, reports.

"Mikayelyan has sustained shrapnel wounds to his legs and back, doctors assess his condition as stable," a representative from the Union was cited as saying.

Mikayelyan left for the frontline several days earlier. He has already undergone a surgery.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.

Donations can be made to Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, which has launched a fundraising campaign to support humanitarian efforts in Karabakh.
