Armenian Hardliners Protest Against Russia-Brokered Nagorno-Karabakh Armistice
Thousands in Yerevan call for PM to quit after he signed a deal to end the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh.

Yerevan, SAEDNEWS, Nov. 11: Protests are growing in Armenia, with demonstrators in Yerevan calling for Prime Minister’s Nikol Pashinyan. Many feel betrayed after he signed a deal to end the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh.

Meanwhile, the Russian Ministry of Defence has released footage of Russian peacekeepers and military vehicles at Erebuni airport in Armenia, where Moscow has a military base.

According to the ministry, 20 planes and 400 personnel, as well as military vehicles, have arrived. The first set of Russian troops were deployed to Nagorno-Karabakh on Tuesday under the deal that halted six weeks of fighting between Azeri and ethnic-Armenian forces.

The agreement ended military action and restored relative calm to the breakaway territory, internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan but populated and, until recently, fully controlled by ethnic Armenians (Source: AlJazeera).
