Life in Nagorno-Karabakh after Azerbaijan’s Ethnic Cleansing

Lindsey Snell, Cory Popp, and Sona Margaryan

A month after Azerbaijan attacked and ethnically cleansed Nagorno-Karabakh, we spoke to the daughter of one of the very few people who stayed behind.

Azerbaijani state media recently bragged about AZ establishing local telecom services, but the Armenians who stayed in NK don’t have internet or mobile connections, and they aren’t allowed to speak to their loved ones without being monitored.

And as part of AZ’s “reintegration” facade, AZ authorities confiscated the Armenian passports of those who remained, but haven’t issued Azerbaijani passports to them.

This means the Armenians who stayed in NK are currently stateless.
