The 2020 Artsakh-Karabakh War w/ Pietro Shakarian

So this week my guest is PhD Candidate and Russian History expert, Pietro Shakarian. 

I invited Pietro on the show to talk about the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh or Artsakh war that started last summer and has barely been covered by the Western mainstream media..

Between the 27th September and the 10th November 2020 over 100,000 Armenians have been displaced, nearly 4000 killed, and many sites of Armenian cultural and historical significance have been taken, damaged or destroyed. 

Pietro was kind enough to come on to talk me through the history of not only the region where the conflict has taken place, but the why’s and the how’s and also the implications on the people who have lived there for generations who are now refugees.
