After seceding from the Soviet Union in 1990, Armenia went through economic and political turmoil during armed conflicts that lasted until 1994. Today Armenia is recovering from the devastation, and is and is limited in many resources as most goods are shipped in via rail. Although the conflicts with Azerbaijan are still currently at a cease-fire, separatist groups still exist and many territories are still run by them. Evacuation and kidnap insurance should be essential while traveling in Armenia.
