The National Geographic has published pictures of Nagorno-Karabakh on Instagram within the government's Birth Encouragement Program, an initiative that hoped to spark a baby boom in Nagorno-Karabakh.

One of the pictures depicts Ghazanchetsots Church in Shushi. “Maria Arustamyan is christened on her first birthday at Ghazanchetsots Church, Shushi, Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, July 19, 2011.

Her parents, Anush and Grigory, pictured with Maria’s godparents and grandmother, received a wedding and first baby payment of approximately 765 euros as part of the government's Birth Encouragement Program, an initiative that hoped to spark a baby boom there. Nagorno-Karabakh, a de facto independent republic, is internationally recognized as a part of Azerbaijan,” the National Geographic wrote on Instagram alongside a photo.
