Dolma Diaries
Three new episodes of the cross-Caucasian comedy web series “Dolma Diaries” have been released. This series chronicles the lives of three young men—an Armenian, an Azerbaijani, and a Georgian—cohabiting in a rented flat in Berlin. Their journey unfolds against the backdrop of their pursuit of education in Germany, supported by scholarships contingent upon the prerequisite of cohabitating with a perceived adversary.

Can people respect, assist, and befriend each other despite originating from antagonistic societies? Comedy web series asks this question. We are currently in the process of adding subtitles in Azerbaijani, Armenian, Georgian, and Russian languages.
Attacks on JAMnews
In Azerbaijan, several articles have been published in government-controlled media outlets against JAMnews, accusing it of engaging in anti-Azerbaijani propaganda, anti-state activities, and having connections with Armenian authorities. The latest publication included the names of editors, authors, interviewees, and even those who were not interviewed. Shahin Rzayev, a former editor and current author, was briefly detained.

• In Abkhazia, an ongoing campaign against JAMnews, led by the Foreign Ministry itself, accuses it of being anti-Russian, spreading Western propaganda, and having connections with Georgian authorities. JAMnews editor and some authors were interrogated by security services.

On Twitter, there is an ongoing campaign against JAMnews led by Armenian users, including popular bloggers and some politicians, with active participation from users related to the Armenian diaspora. They accuse JAMnews of being anti-Armenian and having connections with Azerbaijani authorities.
