Global News published this video item, entitled “Azerbaijan’s president says Armenia leaving disputed region is only way for peace amid conflict” – below is their description.
Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev said on Sept. 30 that peace can only be achieved if Armenian forces leave the disputed region. Aliyev, together with his wife his Mehriban visited a military hospital in Baku, where soldiers wounded during the clashes with Armenia are treated. Dozens have been reported killed and hundreds wounded in fighting since Sept. 27 that has spread far beyond the enclave’s borders, threatening to spill over into all-out war between the former Soviet republics of Azerbaijan and Armenia. The Defence Ministry of Azerbaijan released footage showing artillery performing strikes on Sept. 30. Another video released by the ministry showed military hardware located in the direction of the Jabrayil district was destroyed on Sept. 29. Azerbaijan and the ethnic Armenian enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh said there were attacks from both sides at several directions along the line of contact that divides them. Fighting between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces entered a fourth day on Wednesday in the biggest eruption of their decades-old conflict since a 1994 ceasefire. The re-eruption of one of the “frozen conflicts” from the collapse of the Soviet Union has raised concerns about stability in the South Caucasus, a corridor for pipelines carrying oil and gas to world markets and raised fears that regional powers Russia and Turkey could be drawn in.

In This Story: Soviet Union
The Soviet Union, officially the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), was a federal socialist state in Northern Eurasia that existed from 1922 to 1991. Nominally a union of multiple national Soviet republics, it was a one-party state (until 1990) governed by the Communist Party, with Moscow as its capital in its largest republic, the Russian SFSR.
The Soviet Union had its roots in the October Revolution of 1917 when the Bolsheviks, headed by Vladimir Lenin, overthrew the Provisional Government that had earlier replaced the monarchy of the Russian Empire.
On 25 December 1991, Gorbachev resigned and the remaining twelve constituent republics emerged from the dissolution of the Soviet Union as independent post-Soviet states. The Russian Federation (formerly the Russian SFSR) assumed the Soviet Union’s rights and obligations and is recognized as its continued legal personality.
