Nagorno-Karabakh is a large area spread over 4,400 square kilometers. Armenian Christian and Muslim Turks live in this area. This area comes from Azerbaijan.
It is said that this area within Azerbaijan had become an autonomous area during the existence of the Soviet Union. Internationally, this area is known only as part of Azerbaijan, but the majority of the population here is Armenian.
In 1991, the people of this region declared themselves independent of Azerbaijan and declared part of Armenia. Azerbaijan rejected his action completely. Thereafter, there are frequent conflicts between the two countries at certain intervals.
Armenia and Azerbaijan were liberated between 1918 and 1921. Even at the time of independence, there was no special friendship between the two countries 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 a part of Azerbaijan (Nagorno-Karabakh) to Armenia. It is also said that Joseph Stalin ceded the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh to make Armenia happy.
During the war that began in the late 1980s to the 1990s, more than 30 thousand people were killed and more than 1 million people were displaced. During that time, the separatist forces captured some areas of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Even after the ceasefire in 1994, the deadlock continues here. Often firing incidents occur in this area. But on Sunday, large-scale war situations are being seen. The forces on both sides are standing face to face.
