原文:

Russia's Defense Ministry said that 15 planes carrying peacekeepers and military equipment departed for Nagorno-Karabakh on Nov. 10, 2020. A total of 1,960 Russian peacekeepers are to be deployed in the region under a five-year mandate.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who personally announced the agreement overnight, called the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh a truly great tragedy on Tuesday and expressed satisfaction over agreements reached to end the bloodshed.

The pact calls for Armenian forces to turn over control of some areas it held outside the borders of Nagorno-Karabakh, including the Lachin region, where the main road leading from Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia passes through. The agreement calls for the road, the so-called Lachin Corridor, to remain open and be protected by Russian peacekeepers.

中譯:

俄國國防部表示,15架搭載維和部隊及軍事裝備的飛機,於2020年11月10日起程前往納卡自治區,總計1960名官兵依令於該區實施為期5年的部署任務。

俄國總統蒲亭週二晚間宣布此停火協議,將納卡自治區的爭戰稱之為「一場十足的大悲劇」,並對能夠「達成協議、終止殺戮」表示欣慰。

該協議要求亞美尼亞部隊,交出其在納卡自治區邊界外部分地區的管理權,包括拉欽區,貫穿其間的主要道路,起自納卡自治區、通達亞美尼亞的「拉欽走廊」且須保持開放,並由俄國維和部隊負責保護。
