    The people of Karabakh remain ethnically cleansed from their homes, and it looks like no one is interested in ever fixing that.

    Russia had posted peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh after the last major war between Armenia and Azerbaijan in 2020 but said this week it had begun withdrawing them.

    Russia’s main loss in the war against Ukraine is their relationship with their de facto satellites. Both Caucasian and Central Asian countries have moved away diplomatically from Russia, being completely aware that it has their hands tied. China moves its influence into Central Asia, and the Caucasus dissolves into its myriad of historical conflicts. Only Belarus remains loyal.
