The Republic of Azerbaijan, popularly known as Azerbaijan is a country located at the boundary of Eastern Europe and West Asia. The country boasts of a population of over 10 million residents as of 2022 and shares a northern border with Russia.
After years of unrest in the surrounding region, Azerbaijan recently launched a military invasion to seize power from the Republic of Artsakh’s breakaway faction, leading to the migration of thousands of residents to nearby Armenia.
The Republic of Armenia, commonly referred to as Armenia, is a country located in the Armenian Highlands of Asia. The country is bordered by Turkey to the west, Georgia to the north, Azerbaijan to the east, and Iran to the south. During World War I, over 1 million Armenians were murdered in what is termed the ‘Armenian Genocide’.
According to recent reports, a gas station explosion in Nagorno-Karabakh has killed at least 20 people and injured over 290 others as residents of the area flee to Armenia. Nagorno-Karabakh is a disputed territory in the Azerbaijan State, controlled by the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR), also known as the Republic of Artsakh.
