An obsidian carved ledger with a picture of an Armenian war hero dressed in his military uniform is seen on a gravestone in the War Memorial cemetery in Stepanakert, the capital of Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. With a population of 140.000, the majority being Armenians, Nagorno Karabakh Republic aims to achieve political and economical stability. The high unemployment rate, low salaries and the lack of opportunities for the youngsters make the unrecognized republic to be a hard place to live. Stepanakert, Nagorno-Karabakh, 20 September 2008.
