In this Conversation on Groong we’ll be talking about Russia’s foreign policy perspectives toward the Caucasus in general, and Artsakh-Karabakh in particular.
This episode was recorded on Wednesday, November 9, 2020.
On November 9, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia signed The Statement ending the war in Artsakh, known more commonly as Nagorno-Karabakh. Russia emerged as a major winner, by ending the violence, introducing peacekeepers, and upholding its historical role as the regional referee in the Caucasus. What are Russia’s interests in the region, and in this agreement?
To help us explore Russia’s perspective, and the outlook for peace in the region, we are joined by Pietro Shakarian who is a historian and a Ph.D. candidate in Russian History at the Ohio State University. His analyses on Russia, Armenia, and the post-Soviet space have appeared in several publications, including The Nation, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Russian International Affairs Council, Russia Direct, Hetq, and more.
That concludes this Lightning Conversation On Groong.
