Recall that Ukraine does not recognize Nagorno-Karabakh and welcomes the same position of Azerbaijan on Crimea.

Nagorno-Karabakh, inhabited mainly by Armenians declared secession from Azerbaijan in 1991, This led to armed conflict, during which Azerbaijan lost control over the territory, killed about 30 thousand people. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict escalated into a full-scale military clashes in 1991-1994 In Baku said territory, who are engaged in the NKR is occupied.

Now force composed of ethnic Armenians control not only the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, but also the commanding heights around the region. Thus, Azerbaijan has no actual power over approximately one fifth of the territory that belongs to the state legally. The frozen conflict has flashed with new force in April 2016 and the Armenian and Azerbaijani sides have accused each other in the attack with heavy weapons.
