Artsakh Surrenders: What Comes Next?

Today, hosts Eric Hacopian and Patrick Elliott break down the assault on Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) by Azerbaijani forces, as well as the ceasefire agreement that has been declared in return for the disbanding of the defense army.

On September 19, almost 3 years to the day of the launch of the 2020 Karabakh war, Azerbaijan initiated a large-scale military attack along the contact line and into civilian areas of Artsakh.

Eric and Patrick discuss the situation on the ground, what the Russian plan is, the United States’ and broader Western response, and what the future can look like for Artsakh and Armenia.
