Ինչպես Հայաստանը, այնպես էլ Սփյուռքը 2020-ի Արցախյան պատերազմն ընկալեց ու վերապրեց որպես էկզիստենցիալ ճգնաժամ, իսկ համազգային համախմբումը բեկումնային դարձրեց այս պահը։
The 2020 Artsakh War was perceived and experienced in Armenia as well as in the diaspora as an existential crisis. Kasbarian argues that the recent nation-wide mobilization made this moment a transformative one.
