WATCH: Azeri Islamists Destroy An Armenian Cross Despite Putin’s Calls For Respect Of Christian Shrines In Artsakh

A video appeared, showing an Azeri Islamist, or possibly a pro-Turkish terrorist standing on the top of an Armenian church, destroying its cross. It is still unclear where exactly the video was taken, but it’s certainly in southern Artsakh, occupied by the invading Azeri troops. The rest of Artsakh is still under Armenian and Russian control, so it couldn’t have been taken in those areas.

However, this does raise questions of the fate of other Christian religious sites in areas that are or will come under Azeri occupation. If horrifying war crimes committed by Azeri troops and pro-Turkish terrorist allies against Armenian civilians and captured (or killed) soldiers are taken into account, the fate of Armenia’s ancient and Christian legacy, which predates the existence of Azeris for thousands of years, looks rather grim.

Russian President Vladimir Putin told his Azeri counterpart, Ilham Aliyev, on Saturday to take care of Christian shrines in parts of Artsakh that Azerbaijan is taking control over from the Armenian administration. Putin told Aliyev that there were many Christian churches and monasteries in areas that will go under Azerbaijani control.
