A brief glimpse into the past

During the war, about 93,000 Armenians from Karabakh (out of total of ~150,000) fled into Armenia, Karabakh official says: About 49,000 have returned:



Russia says all Azeri captives returned under Karabakh deal What total and utmost nonsense. Please stop playing with words. Return all the POWs immediately. @Reuters shame on you for reporting misleading news without checking. @guardian @nytimes @nypost



Karabakh residents ask peacemakers to provide alternative link with Armenia #cknot #Azerbaijan



Meanwhile, the first* people to get COVID vaccines in the South Caucasus are Russian soldiers in Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Armenia and Karabakh. Timeline unclear for everyone else. *other than a handful of Armenian officials who got the Sputnik vaccine:



Lavrov dismisses "exotic proposals" for Russia to annex Karabakh, but doesn't address the more common prediction/hope among some that Karabakhis will get Russian passports a la Abkhazia and South Ossetia:

#Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says that #Armenia did not immediately present a full list of captives it sought, which has slowed down the process.



As a sign of reconciliation #Aliyev could welcome #Pashinyan in #Azerbaijan, visit monument to #KhojalyGenocide victims, conduct religious ceremonies in 🇦🇲church in #Baku & release 62 #Armenia|n terrorists who killed #Azerbaijani|s in #Karabakh after ceasefire agreement in 2020



#Armenia has returned all #Azeri POWs that were captured during the recent war while #Azerbaijan is intentionally and deliberately halting the process and keeping Armenian prisoners. #FreeArmenianPOWs What is the Armenian government doing?
