- The Lachin corridor is a mountain road that links Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh.
- Being the only road between these two territories, it is considered a humanitarian corridor or “lifeline” to the Armenian population of Nagorno-Karabakh.
- The corridor is in the Lachin District of Azerbaijan, but is ostensibly under the control of a Russian peacekeeping force as provided for in the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh armistice agreement.
- It has been blocked by Azerbaijani protesters related to the issue of illegal mining of natural resources in Nagorno-Karabakh.
- It supports movement of people and essential goods like- food, fuel, and medical supplies in or out of the enclave.
