Nagorno Karabakh, Shusha (27 photos)

Shusha is a town in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. The town fell under occupation of the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic since its capture by Armenia in 1992, during the Nagorno-Karabakh War.

Shusha is a de jure part of the Republic of Azerbaijan, with the status of an administrative division of the surrounding Shusha Rayon. Situated at an altitude of 1400–1800 metres (4,600-5,900 ft) in the picturesque Karabakh mountains, Shusha was a popular mountain recreation resort in the Soviet era.

The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan started in 1988, after Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan for Nagorno-Karabakh region. As a result of the war, Armenian armed forces occupied about 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

The countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994, however the situation on the frontlines remain tense since then. Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council’s resolutions on leaving Nagorno-Karabakh and other surrounding regions.

ANS PRESS released some photos of Shusha, without mentioning the original source. The photos  were allegedly shot in 2013.
