Nagorno-Karabakh, or Artsakh in English, formally belongs to Azerbaijan. It is inhabited mainly by Armenians, it functions in fact as an independent state, but it is not recognized by any other country. This is the territory for which, after the collapse of the USSR, there is a struggle that is weakening and intensifying. The conflict has been going on since the late 1980s. The region is striving for unification with Armenia, Azerbaijan does not intend to allow it. These countries have already fought three wars over Nagorno-Karabakh, which have not brought a resolution. Thanks to Russian mediation, there is currently a more or less respected ceasefire, although there are flashpoints every now and then.
