Preview thumbnail of map of territorial control in Azerbaijan and Armenia, including the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region and the self-proclaimed Republic of Artsakh as well as clashes along the two countries' official border. Updated to October 2022, showing Azerbaijan's apparent territorial incursions into Armenia proper, as well as still-contested sites in Nagorno-Karabakh and the new location of the replacement for the Lachin corridor. Now includes terrain. Colorblind accessible.
Almost two years after the two countries' war ended in a ceasefire, continued clashes have seen Azerbaijan capture several areas apparently within Armenia, while the Russia-enforced corridor from Armenia to Nagorno-Karabakh has moved to a different location.
 
This subscriber-exclusive report goes in-depth on territorial issues and conflict-related developments since our previous Nagorno-Karabakh map report in early 2021, with increased focus on the contested border between Azerbaijan and Armenia proper.

Thumbnail previewing map of Russian-controlled territory in Ukraine on September 26, 2022. In addition to the Crimean peninsula, which Russia had already seized in 2014, and parts of the far eastern Donetsk and Luhansk provinces (the Donbass region) already controlled by Russia-backed separatist rebels (and declared independent as the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics), Russian forces now control a large strip of territory just north of Crimea, including Kherson city and parts of Mariupol, as well as all of Luhansk province and large additional areas of Donetsk provinces, but have lost most of their territory in Kharkiv province after a recent Ukrainian offensive. Map includes key locations from the news, such as Izium, Vysokopillia, Lyman, Pisky, Krasnohorivka, and many more. Colorblind accessible. Though slow Russian advances have continued in some areas, recent weeks have also seen a string of major Ukrainian victories, which have pushed Russian forces out of most of the areas they had controlled in Kharkiv province.

This article, originally written during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, has been revised and updated to for the passing of the throne to her son, King Charles III.

Which countries does King Charles reign over?

Those countries are together known as the "Commonwealth realms" - a smaller subset of the Commonwealth of Nations, which also includes many kingless republics.
