Does a country conquer territory from another country or should some other preposition be used? Am I supposed to use some other verb ('win', 'reclaim')?

The Russian Empire conquered the territory from the Ottoman Empire in the late 17th century.

    Yes, conquered from is fine. – Kate Bunting Sep 11 '20 at 7:24

Yes, as Kate Bunting commented, 'from' is fine.

As for the verbs, 'win' and 'reclaim' do not quite mean the same as 'conquer'.

You may want to consider 'annex'.
