In a series of articles in the Washington Post, reporter Will Englund puts the Karabakh conflict into perspective. The first entitled “In Karabakh, the first post-Soviet war,” Englund looks at Karabakh as the first post-Soviet war and how, 20 years later, the people of Artsakh are now determined to hold onto the territory they liberated and attain international recognition for Artsakh. In the second piece, entitled “Karabakh Wants a Seat at the Table,” Englund chronicles the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic authorities’ efforts to become part of the peace negotiations.
“Karabakhis aren’t inclined to make concessions for peace, of territory or anything else. ‘We liberated those lands. They are historic Armenian lands. We shed the blood of our sons for those lands,’ said Robert Baghryan, who today heads the Union of Freedom Fighters of the Artsakh War,” reports Englund from Stepanakert.
