A piece of wall remained intact on a field near Khojaly city, Nagorno-Karabakh. Khojaly is a military base, situated near the border with Azerbaijan and 10 km Northeast of the capital Stepanakert. The city is known for the Khojaly Massacre committed on 25–26 February 1992 by the Armenian and, partially, by CIS armed forces (the Russian 366th Motor Rifle Regiment) during the Nagorno-Karabakh War. There is no official report of mines left unexploded, but is certain that Nagorno-Karabakh is one of the former Soviet Union territories with the greatest area of minefields. Khojaly, Nagorno-Karabakh, 19 September 2008.
