In a shocking development, the fight between Armenia and Azerbaijan has resumed in the Nagorno-Karabakh.

The resumption of the fight mocks the agreement both the countries reached few days ago at the behest of Russia.

Both the countries have blamed each other for the resumption of the fight.

Armenia claims that around six of its soldiers have been injured during the fight. Meanwhile, Azerbaijan alleges that around four of its soldiers have been killed because of the fight.

Both the countries claim their right over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh. Internationally, it is recognized as the part of Azerbaijan, but is controlled ethnic Armenians.

The agreement, though has brought a short-term solution to the crisis, has largely left the actual issue unattended.

The main reason for the resumption of the fight is, in a sense, the lack of clarity of the agreement reached between the two countries.

Armenia has the indirect support of Russia, which played a pivotal role in the development of the agreement to deescalate the tension in the disputed region.

Likewise, Azerbaijan enjoys the direct backing of Turkey, as well as the indirect support of the western world, which is led by Germany and France.

Russian peacekeepers are stationing in the region. It is yet to be seen how they will handle the situation.

The Nagorno-Karabakh War is the most brutal war the continent of Europe has witnessed in its recent history.

The battle was between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Nagorno-Karabakh is a region located between these two countries. The region was controlled by ethnic Armenians, though was internationally recognized as a part of Azerbaijan. The conflict began, when Azerbaijan launched a military move to establish its recognised claim over the territory.

Azerbaijan had the support of Turkey and even the European Union.

When the war reached its final stage, Armenia, which enjoyed the indirect support of Russia, was at a losing end.

Generally speaking, Azerbaijan has won the war by establishing its authority of the majority of the land which were under the control of ethnic Armenians.

But, actually, the real winner is not Azerbaijan and Turkey; it is Russia.

It is Russia which has brokered a peace deal between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

What the development points at is the failure of the European Union – which is considered as the most powerful organisation based in Europe.

In reality, Russia has won where the European Union has miserably failed. What the incident exposes is the weakness of the union, which boats of its unity and stability, and is known for its peace-making framework.
