    Thomas de Waal: More storm clouds gather over Armenia, Azerbaijan

    In normal times, the latest upsurge in violence in the South Caucasus would have attracted a lot more attention. UK journalist Thomas de Waal, who is also a senior fellow with Carnegie Europe specializing in Eastern Europe and the Caucasus region, wrote this in an article ( https://carnegieeurope.eu/strategiceurope/87976 ) published for Carnegie Europe. De Waal added as follows, in particular:

    Nearly 300 soldiers died in a large-scale Azerbaijani incursion into the territory of Armenia on September 13–14. Armenia says that 202 of its soldiers and five civilians died or are missing. Azerbaijan has put its losses at 80 soldiers. Let’s not forget that these are countries with small populations where these awful numbers resonate even more strongly.
