Some historical context. Of course, these videos are likely to be biased towards one of the sides in this conflict, so be careful in making conclusions. 

2015 report from the Deutsche Welle in Nagorno Karabakh.


This is a Georgian documentary from 2004, subtitled in English. They claim to be "Georgian and Abkhazian" reporteds, so I imagine they might be backed by Russia, which as far as I know tends to be on the side of Armenia.


Recent conflict started before even the USSR had dissolved, in 1988. That year saw the Sumgait pogrom, violent riots that targeted and killed Armenians in the Soviet Azerbaijan Republic. Armenians living in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Azeri republic, claimed the right to self-determination, starting a war that lasted until 1994 (Nagorno-Karabakh War).

This documentary says the US, Turkey and Afghanistan supported Azerbaijan in the resulting conflict.
