Gagauzia: Geopolitics and identity

Gagauzia is an autonomous territorial unit located in the southeast of Moldova. Yet, the complex geopolitical situation in which the tiny region finds itself accentuates the challenges that still exist in the post-Soviet space.

Gagauzia (or Gagauz Yeri in the local language) is a small autonomous region in southern Moldova. Established in its current form in 1995, and officially known as the Autonomous Territorial Unit of Gagauzia, the entity covers 1,832 square kilometres and is divided into three dolays (districts) situated in four enclaves. Out of the population of 155,600 (which makes up 4.6 per cent of Moldova’s population), the Gagauz people represent the majority of the region’s inhabitants (82.1 per cent), followed by Bulgarians (5.1 per cent), Moldovans (4.8 per cent), Russians (3.8 per cent) and Ukrainians (3.2 per cent).

Armenia sides with Russia again, this time in Syria

Even after the change of power last year, Armenia continues to adhere to Russia on foreign policy and tolerate Russia’s massive role domestically. Most recently, this is demonstrated by Armenia supporting Russia’s vast military effort in support of the Syrian regime.

Victory Day cult in Russia

May 9th has long been something beyond a simple victory day in Russia. It is a national cult. The more years pass and this date becomes a more entrenched part of history, the louder and more grandiosely it is celebrated.

Nagorno-Karabakh: A part of Azerbaijan

Long-boiling tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan flared again on April 2nd, 2016, with dozens of soldiers and civilians from both sides killed in the fighting.

The theatre was centred in Nagorno-Karabakh, an Azerbaijani region occupied by Armenian forces. Nagorno-Karabakh, apart from several other districts beyond the region, has been controlled by ethnic Armenian separatists since a war that ended in 1994. Although cross-border violence has continued to be a usual phenomenon since the 1994 truce and despite it, annually claiming dozens of lives on both sides, the recent clashes have been the most severe escalation which have almost transformed into full-scale warfare.
