The Tragic End of Artsakh: A Forced Dissolution and Exodus of the Armenian Community


In a devastating blow to the Armenian community, the separatist leader of Nagorno-Karabakh, also known as Artsakh, has issued a decree to dissolve all state institutions by the end of the year. This comes amid a mass exodus of Armenians fleeing Azerbaijani aggression, marking a tragic end to the Armenian-majority region of Artsakh.

The Decree: A Forced End to Artsakh’s Existence

The separatist leader’s decree, stating that “all state institutions and organizations affiliated with their administrations are to be dissolved by January 1, 2024, and the Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) will cease to exist,” is a forced end to Artsakh’s existence. This is a heartbreaking development for the Armenian community, which has long considered Artsakh their homeland.

The Exodus: A Humanitarian Crisis

The decree exacerbates an already dire humanitarian crisis, as thousands of Armenians have been forced to flee their homes due to Azerbaijani military operations. The dissolution of Artsakh’s institutions adds another layer of despair for the Armenian community, who are now stateless in their own land.

The Need for International Intervention

This tragic turn of events underscores the urgent need for international intervention to protect the rights and dignity of the Armenian community in Artsakh. The dissolution of Artsakh is not just the end of a separatist statelet; it’s the erasure of an Armenian cultural and historical landmark.


The separatist leader’s decree to dissolve all institutions in Nagorno-Karabakh is a dark chapter in the history of Artsakh and its Armenian community. It calls for immediate international action to prevent the complete erasure of the Armenian identity in Artsakh.
