The Karabakh war has a history of 30 years. On September 27, 2020, the news of the resumption of a large-scale war along the entire borderline between Artsakh and Azerbaijan surprised the Armenian society and the Armenians of the world. The ceasefire was established 44 days later, on November 9, by a trilateral agreement between Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. The agreement included the deployment of Russian peacekeeping troops in the conflict zone.
The victory of the 2018 Velvet Revolution in Armenia can best define the ideals of the Armenian reality. Not accepting the obvious threat of war, the inner life was unwaveringly striving and trying to ignore the external danger, persistently clinging to its illusion of peace.
With the people's candidate Nikol Pashinyan who came with the revolution, Armenia became perhaps the only democratic state in the South Caucasus region. And as in 1991-1994, when the victory of Armenians on the battlefield was overshadowed by the economic blockade, so the government that came with the revolution found itself in the circle of authoritarian countries, and now it is declining due to the recent defeat.
