'Republic' of Nagorno-Karabakh officially dissolved | DW News

The self-proclaimed republic of Nagorno-Karabakh has ceased to exist as of January 1st and is now fully under Azerbaijani governance. The Armenian majority territory was located in Azerbaijan, which never recognized the breakaway region and defeated its military in a one-day war last September. The subsequent takeover caused about a hundred thousand people to flee the region and the self-styled republic’s leader signed an agreement to dissolve Nagorno-Karabakh. He recently backtracked on that decision, but Azerbaijan absorbed the territory nonetheless.
