Wrong Mapping of Azerbaijan Republic territory

Did you see https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?pid=783309#p783309
Perhaps it also applies here.

Furthermore, this is not the best place to tell people that things are wrong on the map.
You can better create a note on the map, or create an account and update the data yourself.

To add to what escada said, there’s actually no guarantee that the language used in the “name” tags in OSM (which is what you highlighted in https://ibb.co/xfh6MnL) would necessarily match the most-used language in any particular country. Many countries have people speaking different languages. To take just one example, my own country (the UK) has people speaking many languages, with about 4 or 5 having some sort of “official” status, and when I create a map for it I split the country into 4 “language areas” that determine what name to show. That’s impractical to do across the world, and so the “standard” map tiles you see at OpenStreetMap.org will show just “what’s in the name tag” - which tends to be what the people speak locally at this moment in time. As https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/w/images/d/d8/DisputedTerritoriesInformation.pdf says:

However, as that PDF also says, if you’re creating a map or an app you’re perfectly free to use whatever name you like, and many people do.

The area that you have highlighted is further complicated because it’s in the self-declared https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_Artsakh. There https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_Artsakh#Demographics suggests an Armenian-speaking majority. If you have evidence that contradicts this (for example, street signs in a dfferent language) please let us at the DWG know via data@osmfoundation.org.
