He Moved from Lebanon to Armenia for a Better Life. Now he’s in his Fourth year of Azerbaijan Detention

Since his capture in 2020 as a civilian by Azerbaijani forces in Nagorno-Karabakh, Vicken Euljeckjian was prohibited from speaking Arabic, the native language of his wife Linda. This restriction left the couple unable to communicate effectively during phone calls, as Linda doesn’t speak Armenian.

After the recent Armenia-Azerbaijan prisoner exchange, 32 prisoners were set for repatriation. Vicken Euljeckjian’s name was on the list published by Azerbaijani media, but he was not released.

“My father has no hope that he will get out of there. Sometimes he urges us to forget about him and live our own lives,” Vicken’s son says. “But we love him, we are waiting for him and we pray every single day for his and others’ return.”
