The war between Armenia and Azerbaijan has been a long one. The troubles started in 1988, escalating into a full-scale war when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. It left 65,000 ethnic Armenians and 40,000 ethnic Azeris displaced. The International Crisis Group pointed out how the two countries are closer to war in Nagorno-Karabakh’s enclave than in any time since 1994. My project focuses on the young Artsakh citizens who are forced to become soldiers. Between the ages of 13-18, they wear uniforms and train in a military academy.
