'''Karabakh''' (Armenian: Ղարաբաղ; Azerbaijani: Qarabağ) also known as '''Nagorno-Karabakh''' (Armenian: Լեռնային Ղարաբաղ; Azerbaijani: Dağlıq Qarabağ) or '''Artsakh''' (Armenian: Արցախ) is a region in [[Transcaucasia]] with an area of 4400 km².  As of [[1990]] it had a population of 192,000. The population at that time was mainly Armenian (76%) and [[Azeris|Azeri]] (23%), with [[Russia]]n and [[Kurds|Kurdish]] minorities. The capital is ''[[Stepanakert]]'' (Ստեփանակերտ) in Armenian, ''Khankendi'' (''Xankəndi'') in Azeri. The other major city is [[Shushi]] (Շուշի), parts of which today lie in ruins due to the [[Karabakh War]].
