Since Monday, 120,000 ethnic Armenians in the Nagorno-Karabakh enclave have been held under siege as Azerbaijan has blocked the humanitarian Lachin corridor, their only link to Armenia and the outside world, and cut off their gas supply as temperatures plummet to freezing levels.
This marks a dangerous new phase in the south Caucasus: recent events have put paid to the high hopes that existed when a Russian-brokered ceasefire ended the brutal six-week war launched by Azerbaijan in September 2020 (that included hell raining from drones in the sky).
The International Court of Justice has ordered urgent measures to protect Armenian captives and cultural heritage from destruction, as well as to curtail the regular incitement of racial hatred against Armenians by Azerbaijani public figures and government officials (also recently observed by the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination).
