Nagonyi-Karabakh (Nagorno-Karabakh)
In the Soviet Area, the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region, of which the population was predominantly ethnic Armenian, within Azerbaijan in the early 1920s. Ethnic Armenian-Azeri frictions exploded into furious violence in the late 1980s and the ethnic Azeri population fled Karabakh and Armenia while ethnic Armenians fled the rest of Azerbaijan. With the break-up of the Soviet Union, in late 1991, Karabakh declared itself an independent republic under the name of Artsakh after a referendum. That de facto status remains unrecognised elsewhere
