Human Security Dimension across the Frozen Conflicts in the Post-Soviet Space

An analysis of the serious problems arising from the so-called frozen conflicts in the post-soviet region forms the basis of this policy paper with particular reference to human security in South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Nagorno-Karabakh and Transnistria. Despite many similarities among them, the entities are not entirely homogeneous and since the conflicts vary in severity and scope, an individualized approach is required in the provision of much needed human security in each.

After tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan flared in April 2016, the international mediators stepped up again, but there is little hope that they would ever be interested in solving this problem. The patience of the Azerbaijani side that had been negotiating with no progress for 20 years is over; the uncertain situation around the Nagorno-Karabakh harms local population, regional stability and important international projects.

Приведшие к значительным жертвам боевые действия на линии разделения сторон в Карабахе, произошедшие со 2-го по 5-е апреля и названные «четырехдневной войной», подчеркнули необходимость возобновления интенсивных переговоров при международном посредничестве. (PDF) Армен Григорян

April deadly skirmishes along the line of conflict in Karabakh, the so-called “four-day war,” highlighted the need for a reinvigorated international mediation effort. Yerevan’s disappointment over Russia’s approach to the Karabakh conflict may explain why Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Shavarsh Kocharyan’s suggested that the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs should perhaps initiate a total arms embargo on all conflicting sides.

Напряженность на линии соприкосновения сторон в Нагорном Карабахе и на армяно-азербайджанской границе резко возросла после 24 сентября. Обе стороны впервые применили артиллерию. Ситуация усугубляется из-за специфических интересов России, при том, что стороны конфликта по-прежнему не готовы к компромиссу. В создавшейся ситуации Армения и Азербайджан оказываются под усиливающимся давлением России с целью навязать миротворческую миссию. (PDF) Армен Григорян

Tensions along the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh and on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border have intensified from September 24, with skirmishes including the use of heavy artillery by both sides. Russia’s specific interests aggravate the situation, while the conflicting sides remain reluctant to seek a compromise solution. In this situation, Armenia and Azerbaijan are under increasing pressure to accept a Russia-led peacekeeping mission to the region. (PDF) Armen Grigoryan
