Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev have agreed to a Kremlin-brokered truce in the contested Nagorno-Karabakh region that includes the deployment of almost 2,000 Russian peacekeepers. Prime Minister Pashinyan says he accepted the settlement after repeated pleas from his military high command, arguing that Armenia had no alternative but to agree to the terms. In a national address, President Aliyev described the truce as Armenia’s military surrender. The Kremlin, meanwhile, has defended the settlement as “a victory for the peoples of two countries, Azerbaijan and Armenia.” Immediately after the truce was announced, celebrations broke out in Azerbaijan, while an angry mob stormed the House of Government in Yerevan and demanded Pashinyan’s resignation.
