Artsakh.Org.UK has been established with the objective of promoting and recognising Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) as an INDEPENDENT country, where the People have the right to live in Peace and Freedom within the Global Community.
Artsakh is a country of 150,000 people that has lived in peace for the last 20 years. It is situated within the South Caucasus, adjacent to the Republic of Armenia. The unresolved conflict with Azerbaijan, and its unrecognised status, means that the People are unjustly deprived of their rights as global citizens.
Based in the UK, my objective is to publicise the many positive aspects of the Life and People of Artsakh, the culture, the youth and the vibrancy as well as the many difficult issues that surround this country and the Armenian people. I am a totally independent concern, have no Armenian lineage, but recognise the fundamental humanitarian issue that is affecting the lives of the citizens of this country.Ultimately self-determination of the People must take precedence over territorial integrity in a modern, global, community.
Recognised Independence, and lasting Peace and Freedom for the People of Artsakh is the only acceptable outcome.
I am cooperating with Susanna Petrosyan of the Artsakh Youth Development Center (AYDC). The basis of this is the shared objective of “Making Artsakh visible”. AYDC supports me with specific research, assistance with identifying and meeting contacts, and translation. I also volunteer with English Conversation and Photography classes in the Center.
