The two countries also declared martial law, Yerevan even decreeing general mobilization. In Baku and other major Azerbaijani cities, a nighttime curfew has been ordered.

Departure to the front on Sunday afternoon

In the center of the Armenian capital, several dozen volunteers gathered on Sunday afternoon to go to the front. The authorities handed them uniforms before leading them to the conflict zone some 300 km to the east.

“We expected Azerbaijan to start a war (...) they talked about it all the time with their war rhetoric. And we gathered here to help, to go and support our army ”, said one of the volunteers, Grigor Barekian, 29 years old.

Nagorny Karabakh was the scene of a war in the early 1990s which left 30,000 dead. Since then, Baku has wanted to regain control, while the peace talks have been paralyzed for years.

A “neglected conflict”

Clashes erupt there regularly but rarely of such magnitude. In 2016, clashes almost degenerated into war.

Deadly clashes also opposed Armenians and Azerbaijanis in July 2020.

Olesya Vartanyan, expert of the International Crisis Group, considered that this new escalation was explained in particular by the absence of international mediation despite the crisis of the summer.

“Since the coronavirus, the conflict has been neglected (...) even after the July clashes” , she regretted.
