Why this petition matters

Started by Armenia Community

Dear Mr President Putin,

We are sure you are aware of the fact that on the 27th of September Azerbaijan violated peaceful negotiations over Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) and attacked Armenia and started a large-scale war in the region.

On behalf of the Armenian community we urge you to take action to immediately put an end to this war.

On one side you are obliged to promote and uphold peace in the conflict area as a member of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organization) and co-chair of the OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe) Minsk Group.

On the other side this war undermines Russia’s efforts to prevent terrorism and ethnic cleansing in the region. It is a serious threat to regional stability and security in the South Caucasus. In addition, the interference from Turkey magnifies the instability.

Finally and most importantly, this is about saving human lives and every day this war goes on, more people will die.

Please intervene and restore a ceasefire in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh).

Kind regards,

The Armenian community worldwide

At its meeting in Helsinki in 1992, the then-CSCE Council requested the Chairman-in-Office to convene as soon as possible a conference on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict involving Armenia and Azerbaijan. This event was to take place in Minsk and provide a forum for negotiations towards a peaceful settlement. In 1994, the OSCE Budapest Summit established the so-called Minsk Group, which continues to work for the creation of conditions in which such a conference can take place.

The Co-Chairs of the Minsk Group are Ambassadors Igor Popov of the Russian Federation; Stéphane Visconti of France; and Mr. Andrew Schofer of the United States of America.

The Minsk Group’s Co-Chairs visit the region regularly to conduct high-level talks with the parties to the conflict, and hold meetings with the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office and the Minsk Group members to brief them on the process. They are mandated to provide an appropriate framework for conflict resolution in the way of assuring the negotiation process; to obtain conclusion by the Parties of an agreement on the cessation of the armed conflict in order to permit the convening of the Minsk Conference; and to promote the peace process by deploying OSCE multinational peacekeeping forces.
