European Views of the Nagorno-Karabakh Crisis

October 26, 2020

Episode Notes:

The war between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disptued territory of Nagorno-Karabakh is entering its fifth week with no end in sight. The fighting continues after yet another ceasefire, the third since fighting began on Sept. 27, seems to have collapsed.
