They are a threat to peace and solidarity in the region, undermining the internationally established foundations of the human rights system.
The speech of the President of Azerbaijan on April 12 at the opening of the “Park”, as well as his speech on April 13, emphasize that ordinary people living in Armenia and Artsakh, as well as all Armenian people have psychological disorders, are full of poison, are incomprehensible, savage, arrogant, have no morality, etc.

Impunity breeds new and more serious crimes which we witnessed during the September-November 2020 war.
Not everything should be measured by oil, weapons and money. There is something much more valuable like humanity, justice and truthfulness than financial gain and self-interest. But in this selfish world, it is too much to expect such decent behavior!
As you are no doubt aware, Article 18(3) of the OPCAT, to which Armenia became a party in 2006, contains a positive obligation on states parties to provide both the necessary resources and adequate funding for the effective functioning of NPMs.
The Human Rights Defender of Armenia will present this case to the international bodies, noting it as yet another proof that the treatment of Armenians in September-November of 2020 was an implementation of a policy of ethnic cleansing and genocide.
According to Tatevik Bezhanyan, more people returned to Armenia in the fall of 2020 during the second Karabakh war than after it. The recession began after the defeat in the war:

There is no substantiation for the assumptions or allegations that the current deployment of Azerbaijan is based on the division of the Soviet state border.

It remains to be seen if Armenia’s next leaders will be able to find a way to minimize the losses from the war. But one thing is certain: Pashinyan must resign immediately allowing a new and more competent leadership trying to manage the catastrophic situation Armenia finds itself in.
