More than a dozen planes carrying Russian peacekeepers headed for Nagorno-Karabakh on Nov. 10, hours after Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to halt fighting over the separatist region and amid signs this cease-fire would hold where others hadn't.
The truce came after significant advances by Azerbaijani forces that the Nagorno-Karabakh leader said made it impossible for their side to carry on-but angered many Armenians, who stormed government buildings overnight, demanding the Parliament invalidate the agreement. Dozens of protesters gathered again Tuesday morning in front of the parliament building in the Armenian capital of Yerevan.
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev referred to the agreement as a ‘glorious victory’ on Twitter, and Azerbaijanis flooded their capital city to celebrate.
