The official language of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is Armenian. Ethnic Armenians make up roughly 95% of the population. There are also minority groups of Russians, Assyrians, Kurds, Jews and Greeks.[1] Prior to the Nagorno-Karabakh War the former Ethnic Azeri population was much higher, with about 528,000 persons displaced from the area during and after the war,[2] thus reducing the percentage of Azeri language speakers in Nagorno-Karabakh.
