Sotk: A Mining Village Divided Between Armenia and Azerbaijan

The village of Sotk, located in the Gegharkunik region, is in the heart of a mining area. It is famous for holding the country’s largest gold deposits. Prior to the recent Karabakh war, the region bordered Karabakh. But that area has been handed to Azerbaijan per the end of war agreement signed in November 2020. For the residents, it has been a difficult pill to swallow.
