"The Voice of Talyshstan" from Stepanakert may outcry the "let's defend our homeland" calls from Baku

The ethnic minority situation in Azerbaijan is so ambiguous that "the Voice of Talyshstan" from Stepanakert may well outcry the "let's defend our homeland" calls from Baku, Director General of the European Center for Geopolitical Analysis Mateusz Piskorski said in an interview with ArmInfo.

"It is not a secret that not all citizens of Azerbaijan regard that country as their true homeland. Today the Azerbaijani authorities are sending to the frontline in Nagorno-Karabakh mostly representatives of ethnic minorities, Lezgins and Talyshes. So, the losses the latter will inevitably sustain in skirmishes with the Armenians may kill in them the last glimmers of loyalty to Baku," Piskorsky said.

So, according to the Polish expert, the Azerbaijani authorities' current anti-Armenian propaganda may boomerang against them one day.  "By fanning anti-Armenian moods the Azerbaijani authorities hope to generate a patriotic wave that will distract their people from internal and external problems. But they will hardly be able to do it as the problems they are facing are very serious," Piskorsky said.
