Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: Armenia, Azerbaijan continue attacks as Russia calls for ceasefire

Russian President Vladimir Putin called on Wednesday for the attacks to stop in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, saying fighting between ethnic Armenian and Azeri forces was a tragedy.

The fighting in the region — involving heavy artillery, warplanes and drones — has continued despite numerous international calls for a ceasefire.

Residents of Stepanakert, the capital of the breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region, picked through the rubble of their destroyed homes on Wednesday, with some forced to seek underground shelter for days as the city has been subjected to repeated artillery attacks.

Clashes between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces in the region since Sept. 27 has killed hundreds in the worst escalation of hostilities since 1994 when a truce ended a war that raged for several years.

    This is exactly like the situation in Crimea. Armenia is Russia, Azerbaijan is Ukraine and Nagorno Karabakh is Crimea. Only Armenia does not have the military strength and influence to do what Russia did.

    Armenia should take example from Italy, and change allies. We had similar issues with our minorities, and solved them with diplomacy. If Turkey and Azerbaijan are so strong, Armenia should switch to the strongest side and join their team. They should deal with Aliyev so that he gives the highest possible autonomy to the Armenians of Karabakh, then withdraw their troops from the land. They should also deal with Turkey, decide a common version of the facts of 1915, and make economic deals both countries could earn from.
    It is not a honorable choice, but it's better than their current poverty and war.
    Italians are always on the right side: the winning one. In the late XIX century France and Britain helped us to fight against Austria, to unify our country. Immediately after we allied with Austria and Germany against France and Britain. In WWI we sided with France and Britain against Austria and Germany, winning the war. In 1934 we guaranteed Austrian independence from Nazi Germany, then allied with Hitler. In WWII when Hitler started losing we joined America, becoming the most loyal allies of the USA… at least for now. This is why Italy has no enemies: everyone is a potential partner.
    In fact everybody does like us. We're simply the only ones honest enough to admit it.

    Basically said we are trying to be friends with them both. Want a ceasefire. But of Turkey and Azerbaijan press their luck, they'll awake the Bear to the north.

    Currently, the Azeri Army is not fighting inside Karabakh region. They are sending rockets there because they are returning fire. Currently, the Azeris are in the process of liberating the Azeri regions . adjacent to Karabagh occupied in early 1990s as a buffer and security zone for Karabagh. I suspect the fighting will diminish when these Azeri regions are liberated and some sort of agreement maybe found for the Karabagh region itself.
