On September 27th, 2020, the government of Azerbaijan launched a full-scale military invasion on the independent state of Artsakh.
Artsakh is a small state made up of 150,000 ethnic Armenians, who are indigenous to the land.
Azerbaijan's military was backed by Turkey, who sent thousands of Syrian mercenaries to push Armenians from their native lands.
War Crimes Committed:
Mounting anti-Armenian rhetoric in Azerbaijan has resulted in these innumerable attempts at ethnic cleansing.
A ceasefire agreement was reached in November 2020, but Azerbaijan's government continues to deny its own crimes against humanity ... despite overwhelming evidence.
Azerbaijan's countless crimes against humanity remain ignored.
Artsakh's right to self-determination has been deeply violated ... and its people are on the brink of extermination.
So what’s being done to call to justice the perpetrators of war crimes? Azerbaijan and Turkey seem to continue to enjoy the backing of NATO, and EU. And, while Armenians keep on talking, reporting, and commenting, the enemies cause devastation, fill their coffers, bribe their undeserving supporters, and among others, write their glorious history.
