In the late 1980s, with the help of their patrons in the near and far abroad, the Armenians again took advantage of the situation to realize their "Great Armenia" idea and laid territorial claims to the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. Each time territorial claims to Nagorno-Karabakh were put forward from the outside, incited by the Armenian propaganda and pressure.

When the events of 1988 just started, in an attempt to aggravate the situation and mislead the public opinion, the Armenian politicians and their patrons started to organize strikes and rallies and halted the activity of enterprises in Khankandi and Yerevan in accordance with a long-term deliberate plan to annex Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia under the pretext of economic backwardness of the region.
