The fight continues from September 7
People of Armenian origin are the majority in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, while the international community considers it to be part of Azerbaijan. Since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, Azerbaijan has tried to occupy the region but this has never succeeded. According to unconfirmed information, so far the Azerbaijani army has captured a large part of Nagorno-Karabakh.

What is the history of this struggle
Armenia and Azerbaijan were liberated between 1918 and 1921. Even at the time of independence, the two countries had no special friendship due to the border dispute. After the end of the First World War, a third of these two countries separated the Transcaucasian Federation. Which is now known as Georgia. These three countries joined the Soviet Union in 1922. During this time the great Russian leader Joseph Stalin gave part of Azerbaijan (Nagorno-Karabakh) to Armenia. This part was traditionally under the occupation of Azerbaijan but the people who lived there were of Armenian origin.
