The agreement, which is intended to end the conflict between the two nations, was signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. Several ceasefire agreements have been signed between the two sides since the conflict began in September, but none have been reached so far. The deal confirmed the influence of Russia and Turkey in the region and digested the Western powers. Russia on Tuesday denied that Turkish peacekeepers were likely to be sent to Nagorno-Karabakh, described by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev. “Personally, I made a very difficult decision for myself and for all of us,” Pashinyan said in a statement posted online, describing the ceasefire conditions as “incredibly painful for me and for our people.” In a video speech, Aliyev Pashinjan mocaled himself and said he signed the agreement because of his “iron fist”. But the deal sparked outrage in Armenia when angry protesters broke into the government headquarters in the capital, Yerevan, where they searched offices and smashed windows. In addition, under this agreement, all military operations will be suspended and Russian peacekeeping forces will be deployed along the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh and along the Lachin corridor linking the region to Armenia. These Russian peacekeeping forces, with a force of about 2,000 people, will be deployed in the region for a period of five years. A Kremlin spokesman said there had been no agreement on sending Turkish peacekeeping forces to the controversial region, but that the Turkish military would help occupy a joint observation center with Russian forces. Aliyev also claimed that Turkish peacekeepers would be used as part of the deal, although no details have been released. In the Armenian capital, Yerevan, according to local media, a large crowd gathered to protest the deal.
They broke into Parliament and government buildings and shouted, “We will not give up.” In October of this period, the two countries agreed on a ceasefire agreement, also brokered by Russia, but which did not succeed. .
