Fighting for Survival

The War of Independence in Nagorno-Karabakh

(p.61) 3 Fighting for Survival

This chapter gives an insight on the violence that spread in Armenia and narrates stories of people who survived in spite of the traumatic experience, and how they raised army against Azeri invasion. Although Armenians put up a fighting force, they always felt threatened by the Azeri troops, who, 1992, occupied almost half of Nagorno-Karabakh's territory. In response to this, Armenians launched an all-out offensive in the spring of 1993. The chapter also discusses how Russia played a key role in the war on Armenia. It appeared that Russian domination was best achieved by supporting both Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabakh, playing one side against the other and thereby keeping them both weak.
