Participating in the “Հարթակ” (“Platform”) talk show hosted by the Lragir.am electronic news agency on 28 November, RSC Project Coordinator Haykak Arshamyan assessed the latest wave of assaults targeting civil society activists in Armenia. Arshamyan noted that the latest incidents, involving both a physical assault of a young activist and a coordinated series of arson attacks against the vehicles belonging to civil society activists, were part of a broader context of “impunity,” as demonstrated by the complete failure of the police to arrest or even identify any of the assailants involved in such attacks against civil figures.

The LIBERTAS – European Institute GmbH think-tank published a recent RSC report entitled, “Nagorno-Karabakh Situational Assessment,” in the 28 November issue of its “European Union Foreign Affairs Journal” (EUFAJ). The RSC Assessment was prepared in response to the 12 November downing of a Nagorno-Karabakh army helicopter by an Azerbaijani frontline unit. The three page assessment ( www.regional-studies.org/en/publications/analytical/400-171114) warned that the shoot down of the Mi-24 combat helicopter marked a fresh escalation of tension, only enhanced by an earlier surge in fighting in August that was the most serious since the May 1994 ceasefire. The RSC report further noted that the repercussions from this one incident are even more significant, however, with broader implications, ranging from the military situation to the peace process itself.
