Somewhere in between the KUWTK and SKIMS posts, Kim Kardashian is using her platform to highlight the unrest happening right now on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border.
The entrepreneur and reality TV star whose dad Robert Kardashian, paternal grandparents and great-grandparents are all of Armenian descent, shared a message on her socials to describe the current situation to her 270 million Twitter, Insta and Facebook followers:
“Despite an ongoing global pandemic, Azerbaijan has violated the UN’s appeal for a global ceasefire by unprovoked attacks against the Republic of Armenia,” she writes.
“Civilian structures in Armenia have been targeted and Azerbaijan has now threatened to bomb the nuclear power plant in Armenia,” Kim continues.

While there’s been the use of drone air forces by both sides, Azerbaijani Defense Ministry spokesman Vagif Dargyakhly last week stated that their weapons “are capable of hitting the Metzamur Atomic Energy Station with high accuracy” which could see a Chernobyl-style catastrophe unfold in Armenia.
Kim continues to explain that congressional amendments to laws will be voted on in the U.S. next week which would prevent the U.S from giving “Azerbaijan military aid that would be used against Armenia and Artsakh.” She urges her fans to contact their “senators and representatives to #SupportArmenia.”
“The international community needs to pay attention,” Kim’s message reads, “and intervene now with such political and diplomatic measures to prevent unnecessary escalation and the loss of human life.”
