Lemkin Institute expresses support to Artsakh’s right to self-determination in order to avoid genocide

The Lemkin Institute for Genocide Prevention voiced its solidarity with and support for the people of the Republic of Artsakh in a statement released on November 24.

The statement also briefly presents the history of the change in status of Artsakh, the two Artsakh Wars and the resulting situation.

The Institute also says that the international community should not ignore “the consequences of the Armenian genocide in the region, which completely eradicated the Armenian presence in Western Armenia”, as well as “the ongoing and unchecked genocidal hostility of Azeri nationalists towards Armenians”.
