This is a pretty complex situation, where the good old uncle Stalin contributed to the creation of hostile republics.
.
Applying the concept of “divide and rule” - from the Latin: divide te impera - Stalin, maybe deliberately, drew the borders between Azerbaijan and Armenia so that a big region inhabited by Armenians, Nagorno Karabakh (or Artsakh) would be fully part of Azerbaijan. Some speculate that this policy had been put in place to make Soviet Republics hate each other, so that they would fight one another instead of fighting the central power of USSR.
.
Under the USSR the conflict was prevented by the system, but as soon as the Soviet Union collapsed, the hatred broke into open hostility between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
