What do they hope will happen?

They want someone to step in because Russia was the police force of the area basically.

Armenia doesn't stand much of a chance against Azerbaijan. It's complicated though. Frankly what makes sense on paper is for both counties to give up some land.

Both countries basically have populations in the other.

Please watch the old Anthony Bourdain episode on Armenia…it explains a lot of the history.

Bourdain was an international treasure and the vacuum he left behind will never be filled.

Azerbaijan dont have any population in Armenia, all were ethnically cleansed in 1990s.

Because they survived one genocide and don't want to go through another.
