Armenia and Azerbaijan signed a ceasefire over the weekend, but it has failed to stop the violence between the two countries over the Nagorno-Karabakh region in the Southern Caucasus.

Eric Mock of Slavic Gospel Association says, “There were recent talks in Moscow where they had brokered a ceasefire. But really, it was kind of in paper, not in the application as the fighting continues.”

This conflict has seen the widespread use of unmanned aerial vehicles, making combat more deadly as a result. Bomb-laden drones hover over the battlefield before diving towards targets and exploding.
