REPUBLIC OF ARTSAKH
The current legal and political status of the Republic of Artsakh has been formed through the expression of the will of the people in three referendums, adoption of the Constitution based on their results, and a nationwide consensus reached among the Armenians in previous years.
The Armenians of Artsakh are well aware of the price of peace. The statehood of Artsakh, the right to live freely and independently in its historical homeland are absolute values, and even the threat of war cannot force us to renounce them.
