Soldiers of Nagorno-Karabakh Republic are engaged in defending their positions over the frontline, although in May 1994 an official ceasefire was signed. The ceasefire is regularly broken with casualties on both sides. The conflict started in 1988 and escalated into full-scale war when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. The conflict left 65,000 ethnic Armenians and 40,000 ethnic Azeris displaced.
The border territory is now full of military camps and bases. In the capital Stepanakert a military academy substituted the traditional high-school. Male and female teenagers aged 13-18 are learning maths, history and english after physical exercises and marches.
Nagorno-Karabakh lived for twenty five years in an in-between, neither in war nor in peace, between independence and nonrecognition. That forgotten war seems to be still not finished today.
