We are going to talk about Nagorno-Karabakh, a region that’s been used to living in limbo. The territory is home to nearly a million people, and it’s internationally recognized as being part of Azerbaijan, one of the states of the former Soviet Union. But, in 1994, Armenians living in the region won a hard-fought victory and claimed the region to be autonomous. Soldiers from Armenia have been there to protect people in Karabakh, which doesn’t sit well with Azerbaijan and the state of Karabakh has been in flux since.
