Nagorno Karabakh Region

Recently in Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenia has once again started a proxy war in the occupied territory. It may be noted that the area of Nagorno-Karabakh has been a disputed issue since last year.

Key points

  • The Nagorno-Karabakh region is a landlocked region of the South Caucasus, located in the Karabakh mountain range. It is also known by the name Artsakh.
  • It is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, but its population is mostly Armenian.
  • The war broke out after the people of the Nagorno-Karabakh region voted to join Armenia in the 1980s during rising tensions in the constituent republics of the Soviet Union, which ended with a ceasefire in 1994.
  • Azerbaijan annexed its territories in separatist Armenian territory with the help of Turkish fighter drones and other weapons obtained from Ankara.
  • The fighting has so far killed 6,000 people and ended with a Russian-mediated ceasefire in November.
  • As a result of this fighting, they were driven out of the territories conquered by Armenians in the wars that followed the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the 1990
