Seeking to fragment any possible source of resistance to Moscow's
authority, Stalin split the Armenian nation between Armenia and
Azerbaijan. When the USSR fell apart, the outlook seemed bleak for
the Nagorno-Karabagh Armenians locked uncomfortably into
Azerbaijan. Random pogroms were followed by systematic ethnic
cleansing. And armed resistance.
Oil-rich Azerbaijan cracked down and a bloody conflict ensued in
which elements of the old Soviet military machine were put to the
test in unexpected ways. Afghan Mujahidin, Chechen terrorists and
missing nuclear weapons all played roles in Nagorno-Karabagh's
struggle to survive.
