Artsakh President Shahramanyan Labels Former Artsakh Leaders' Illegal Arrests by Baku as Political

In a recent interview on Artsakh public television, President of the Republic of Artsakh, Samvel Shahramanyan, expressed his concerns regarding Baku’s illegal arrest of former leaders of Artsakh, stating that he believed these actions were politically motivated.

Shahramanyan revealed that he and the Minister of Defense of Artsakh were transferred to Armenia via helicopter, raising questions about the disparate treatment between current and former leaders. "Why did some current leaders leave Artsakh, but former leaders were arrested? I cannot answer that question, why Azerbaijan made such a decision," remarked Shahramanyan during the interview.


The Artsakh President went on to assert that the arrest and subsequent relocation of these individuals to Baku were conducted for political purposes. While he did not elaborate further on the specific political motives behind these arrests, his statement implies a belief that the actions taken by Azerbaijan were aimed at exerting control and influence over the region.



This development raises concerns about the ongoing situation in Artsakh, with the arrest of former leaders adding to the complexity of the post-conflict landscape. The political context surrounding these arrests further deepens the challenges faced by Artsakh and its people as they navigate the aftermath of the recent mass exodus.
