Administrative DivisionsMain article: Administrative divisions of Nagorno-Karabakh Republic
The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic has eight administrative divisions. Their territories include the five districts of the former Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast (NKAO), the Shahumian district in the Azerbaijan SSR which is currently under Azerbaijani control, and the seven rayons around the former NKAO that are under the control of the NKR forces.
Following the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic's declaration of independence, the Azerbaijani government abolished the NKAO and created Azerbaijani rayons in its place. As a result, some of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic's divisions correspond with the Azerbaijani rayons, while others have different borders. A comparative table of the current divisions of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and the corresponding rayons of Azerbaijan follows:
|#||Division||Rayon(s)||Sahar (city)||Former NKAO|
|3||Askeran||Khojali, portion of Agdam||Askeran||Yes|
|5||Hadrut||Southern Khojavend, Jabrayil, portion of Fizuli||Hadrut||Partially|
|2||Martakert||Eastern Kalbajar, Western Tartar, portion of Agdam||Martakert||Partially|
|4||Martuni||Northern Khojavend, portion of Agdam||Martuni||Partially|
|7||Qashatagh||Lachin, Qubadli, Zangilan||Berdzor||No|
|1||Shahumian||Southern Goranboy, Western Kalbajar||Kalbajar (formerly Shahumian)||No|
The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic claims Shahumian, which was not part of the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast. Representatives from Shahumian declared independence along with Nagorno-Karabakh, and the proclamation of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic includes the Shahumian region within its borders. Unlike the rest of Nagorno-Karabakh, Shahumian remains under Azerbaijani control.
