Armenia in Crisis

Program #HOVR001. Recorded in Los Angeles, CA on April 19, 1993.

The collapse of communism has seen the eruption of ethnic wars from the Balkans to the Caucasus. One of the most explosive and dangerous of these involves Armenia and Azerbaijian. Their dispute revolves around Nagorno Karabakh, an overwhelmingly Armenian populated enclave within Azerbaijian. Since fighting broke out in 1988, thousands have been killed and hundreds of thousands have become refugees. The war threatens to widen and become even more destructive.
