Today “Water - War machine” documentary film which was produced in four languages: Azerbaijan, Russian. English and Arabic by the International Eurasia Press Fund (IEPF) with the financial support of the Council on State Support to NGOs was presented to the public within the framework of the “Water – The Source of Life” project.  
 
The film is about the contamination of rivers and water resources including Sarsang water reservoir by Armenia which causes ecological crisis and water scarcity for the people living in the frontline regions of Azerbaijan. 
 
The film has been previously demonstrated at the 8th World Water Forum in Brazil on March 17-23. Azerbaijan was represented IEPF delegation at this forum. The IEPF President Umud Mirzayev said the contamination of rivers flowing from the occupied territories, blocking all water resources and floating explosive devices in the rivers are inadmissible and against international law. 
 
The interview conducted with the international expert on water issues, author of the book entitled “World Water Wars” Adel Darwish and with the Head of the Azerbaijani delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Samad Seyidov also takes part in the film. 
 
PACE resolution on “Inhabitants of frontier regions of Azerbaijan are deliberately deprived of water” in which it is demanded from Armenia to stop its environmental aggression against Azerbaijan has been mentioned in the film.
Interesting statistics on the ecological terror of Armenia against Azerbaijan was stressed in the “Water – War machine”. 
 
Currently 11 rivers flow into Azerbaijan from the territory of Armenia. Total volume of these rivers is 2.54 km3. As a result of the contamination of the rivers with chemical, radioactive and explosive substances, plastics, sewerage, as well as changing of river beds seriously affected the degradation of eco-system of the region.
 
Hundreds of mines and unexploded ordnance floating down through the Tartar river, Khachin river, Gargar river, Tovuz river, as well as Aghstafa river have made serious threats to people to use water. Tens of young people, teenagers died or wounded by the mine that they found in the rivers.
 
More than 40 media and civil society representatives attended the presentation of the film. Elchin Mirzabeyli, Arzu Naghiyev, Azer Hasret, Agil Jamal, Namiq Mayilov were among them and they spoke about the importance of dissemination of truth on water problems in international arena. They also praised IEPF’s activities on this issue. 
 
Alimammad Nuriyev expressed his gratitude to the IEPF team, its President Umud Mirzayev and everyone who worked hard on this film on behalf of the Council on State Support to NGOs. 
 
He concluded that it is important to support such kind of ideas and projects in the future.
