The Nagorno-Karabakh region is an entire mountainous region of about 4000 square kilometers. There is a war going on between the two countries over this area. Both countries were once part of the Soviet Union (USSR). As the Soviet Union began to collapse, the dispute between the two countries escalated. Earlier in 1991 also there was a war between the two countries.
There have been many wars between the two so far:
It is known that since 1991 there have been several wars between Armenia and Azerbaijan. After three years of conflict, Russia intervened. After this initiative of Russia, a ceasefire started between the two countries in 1994. However, even after this, the situation of confrontation always remained the same. Then in 2018, once again a war-like situation arose between the two countries. Both countries started deploying troops on their respective borders.
This issue also runs in the United Nations Security Council:
After this, Russian peacekeeping forces have been deployed in the area of Armenia where Azerbaijan was attacked. The issue of conflict between the two countries has also been raised in the United Nations Security Council. The matter first went to the United Nations Security Council in 1993. Four resolutions were also passed in this matter. However, none of his proposals have been implemented so far.
The fierce conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan:
Even before this, there was a fierce war between these two countries from October-November 2020. Then this war lasted only six weeks. But, in just 6 weeks, there was a stir in the whole world. At that time the US and Europe did not take this war seriously. The war was seen as a tension between India and Pakistan, although the latter result shook the world.
As is known, the Armenian army was considered a disciplined and well-organized army, consisting of a large number of very good tanks and vehicles. However, along with the oil revenue, Azerbaijan has meanwhile purchased a variety of drones from Turkey and Israel. These drones destroyed Armenian artillery, tanks, and military vehicles through their air strikes. It is said that Azerbaijan destroyed 175 Armenian tanks in the war. Turkey has deployed several of its F-16 fighter jets to Azerbaijan. Along with this, Russia gave 8 Sukhoi-30 fighter jets to Armenia.
