Three days left till Armenia hands over Lachin and Aghavno to Azerbaijan

In three days, Armenians will have to start using an alternative route to the Lachin corridor for travel between Armenia and Karabakh. The new route, largely built by Azerbaijani construction workers, passes through the Karabakh villages of Mets Shen and Hin Shen, while bypassing the town of Berdzor and the villages of Aghavno and Nerkin Sus. According to the November 9, 2020, trilateral statement, that ended the Second Karabakh war, Armenia and Azerbaijan had to have agreed on a plan for the new route within three years. Nonetheless, on August 25, the current route will be handed over to Azerbaijan, along with the Berdzor, Aghavno, and Nerkin Sus. The remaining residents have been ordered to evacuate by that date.
