As the sun sets over the rugged terrain, a remarkable event unfolds – Karabakh’s dislocated souls embark on a journey to Armenia. This week’s lightning operation might well etch its name in the annals of history, for it signifies Azerbaijan’s triumph over the separatist forces. As a result, Armenia, a nation with deep-rooted historical ties to Russia, now finds itself taking a conspicuously different path on the global stage.
In an unprecedented move, ethnic Armenian refugees have begun their exodus from Nagorno-Karabakh. This marks the first time such a mass migration has occurred since Azerbaijan launched its daring offensive, a strategic gambit aimed at wresting control of the long-disputed region and, in all likelihood, putting an end to a protracted, three-decade-old conflict.
