As Azerbaijan regains control of Nagorno-Karabakh, ‘most acute issue is humanitarian situation’

Azerbaijani troops are on the edge of Nagorno-Karabakh’s separatist stronghold of Stepanakert, prompting residents to hide in basements in fear, a rebel envoy told AFP on Friday. Hayrapetyan, who represents the separatist government’s information centre in Yerevan, said Stepanakert and other parts of Nagorno-Karabakh have lost most basic services since Baku’s lightning offensive to recapture the ethnically Armenian enclave. For more on the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Nagorno-Karabakh, FRANCE 24’s Delano D’Souza is joined by Olesya Vartanyan, Crisis Group’s Senior Analyst for the South Caucasus region.
