I would like to see EU dare to speak up against Aliyev or Azerbaijan's human rights record from this point on. EU allowed and pretty much enforced Aliyev's dictatorial rule for life.
Oh yes, in the coming years you will see more journalists jailed, peace-activists beaten there. Do not dare act surprised.
Your both-sidism and silence gave the green light a dictator needed. And you knew very well that this war was about a dictatorship against a democracy. Power-hungry megalomaniac's threatened stance in the region. His manipulation of his own population. Of course you knew.
We all came to learn that "European values" mean, it's about the value of money and fossil fuels.
I won't even mention your disregard for life and the basic human rights of the Armenians. We saw clearly you don't care. Won't be naive to claim rights. No, let's at least talk about Azerbaijanis who you love to protect from the very leader they now embrace.
All your "grants", your "human rights organizations" that jump on the wagon of being represented in an oil-wealthy country and operating their (and who selectively disregarded Armenians), crying foul and acting surprised when the said dictator closes your offices. I say FU.
All you "human rights prizes" the awardees of which now now openly call for the genocide of Armenians. I say to all of you, FU.
And now you dare speak out against Armenia? A tiny country that against all odds carried out a revolution, removed the corrupt oligarchs from power? Suddenly you are "concerned" about our democracy?
We will be fine. If you haven't noticed and have missed out on reading your own reports about us, Armenians effectively remove the corrupt from power, render human rights abusers ineffective. We have been doing that and we will keep doing that.
We have learned from bitter experience that our rights are never a given even by human rights organizations, we need to demand them, furthermore fight for them. We will not stop. We will keep exposing your rotten corrupt core until peoples' rights are restored.
We will make the criminals pay, will make dictators pay, they will face international courts. If you are not interested or too scared to do that, we will do that ourselves.

With the advent of the ceasefire, the old corrupt remnants have organized mobs demanding the democratically-elect government to step down, demanding that they get back into power.
These opportunists demand it at this time and in such a way exactly because they are not interested in democracy. Because those corrupt mayors and governors who will falsify votes for them are not in power anymore.
They weaponize and make use of the pain of the parents that have lost their 18-year-old sons in this war, not in any way different how Aliyev weaponizes the IDPs of the first war. I see no difference.
