Azerbaijan Attacks Armenia’s Border Amidst War in Ukraine

While Armenia’s protector falters, Azerbaijan exploits the opening

16 September 2022

With Russia’s weakened military ability, Azerbaijan uses this opportune moment to advance its long-stated cause against Armenia.

Two years after the Nagorno-Karabakh victory, the Azerbaijani army invaded Armenian territory. Ján Cingel, a Slovak expert on the Caucasus, explains what Baku is trying to achieve by attacking Armenia proper.

Azerbaijan chose the area around the Armenian town of Jermuk as a target for its massive attack on Armenia, in which dozens of Armenian soldiers died. On Tuesday morning, the death toll rose to 49 according to Armenian sources. Azerbaijan, on the other hand, has not disclosed its losses.

In a surprise attack, Azerbaijani forces are also believed to have deployed the Turkish Bayraktar drones that helped them win the Karabakh war two years ago.
