On November 21, a high-ranking Russian delegation visited the Armenian capital, Yerevan, to discuss the recent peace deal with Azerbaijan.

The Russian-brokered peace deal, which was announced on November 9, put an end to a fierce battle between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

The Russian delegation, which included Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Defense Minister Sergei Shoygu, met in Yerevan with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. The two sides discussed the implementation of the peace deal.

During the meeting, PM Pashinyan noted that Armenia ”has always felt the support of Russia” during the war, including the personal “support” of Russian President Vladimir Putin as well as the Russian government.

Defense Minister Shoygu briefed PM Pashinyan during the meeting on the deployment of Russian peacekeepers, who are tasked with monitoring the peace deal in Nagorno-Karabakh.

“A total of 23 [security] posts have been deployed,” Shoygu said. “We’re monitoring the road to Stepanakert [the capital of the disputed region].”

Shoygu added that Russian peacekeepers will be working to facilitate the return of refugees as well as to prevent bloodshed in the region.

“Until today, about 7,000 citizens have returned, and this work continues, and I am confident that everyone who wishes to return to Karabakh will be able to do so,” Shoygu told PM Pashinyan.

After meeting in Yerevan the high-ranking Russian delegation traveled to the Azerbaijani capital, Baku, for a meeting with top Azerbaijani officials, including President Ilham Aliyev.

During the meeting, the Azerbaijani President complained to the Russian delegation of what he called the extensive use of foreign mercenaries by Armenia.

“We have numerous photo and video documents. We have passports of foreign citizens, in particular, citizens of France, the USA, Lebanon, Canada, Georgia and other countries. Some of these people are of Armenian origin, some are not. This, however, does not change the essence of the issue because the participation of foreign mercenaries on the part of Armenia, of course, is unacceptable,” Azerbaijani president told the Russian delegation, according to Trend.az.

Many ethnic Armenians of different nationalists went to Nagorno-Karabakh to fight Azerbaijani forces in the early days of the battle. However, Azerbaijan, with the help of Turkey, recruited at least 2,000 Syrian mercenaries in its ranks.

Turkey, which supported Azerbaijan’s attack on Nagorno-Karabakh, is now making preparations to send its own troops to the region.

Defense Minister Hulusi Akar announced on November 21 that Turkish troops are ready to be deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh as soon as possible. The Turkish minister claimed that all the work needed to deploy troops in the region has been completed.

“Our preparations are completed. As a requirement of this resolution, Turkish soldiers will start their duty in Azerbaijan as soon as possible,” Akar said during his visit to the Turkish engine maker TUSAŞ premises in the capital Ankara, according to DuvaR English.

Russia is planning to deploy 1,960 peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh. Turkish troops will likely be technicians, who will be deployed in a joint observation center located in the Azerbaijani-held areas in the region.

      Just shows who the boss is.

    I respect Azerbaijan for going all the way and doing what they believe in no matter the cost, that is why they won the war. The day we Israelis decide to act the same way, our enemies will not dare to mess with us for the next 50 years.

    1. Get lost, this isn’t your war, how’s “israel”? You are scared that trump will leave so now you try to provoke one last war, but that will be your annihilation

      1. <> says:

        Which annihilation Kenny? where is your Hezbollah? we were already prepared to turn them into dust. The day an Israeli PM decides to use the full might of the IDF, is the day your terroristic friends will meet their God. Who knows? it might be sooner than you think.

        1. mhtsaropinigitakis says:

          Those Turko Azeris are with the palestinians and all they want is to see Israel destroyed..and u are with them?

          1. <> says:

            Azerbaijan doesn’t care about the Palis, same as Turkey. It’s a good excuse to turn the public opinion against Israel for domestic issues, but even Erdogan knows he should keep us as a friend and not as an enemy. The truth? the Palestinians have lost their credibility with their refusal to continue the peace talks, some Arab states have already understood it that is why the UAE, Bahrain and Sudan have normalized relations with us. The Palis need to know we can be their best friend in a peace deal, or we can be their worst nightmare if they try to hurt Israelis. It’s between us and them, the rest of the world can just keep talking.

          2. Fog of War says:

            ” Palestinians have lost their credibility with their refusal to continue the peace talks, ”

            Peace talks that have been going on for decades because Israhell refuses to define its final, permanent borders. While also insisting that Palestinian lands remain an un-viable, dis-contiguous mess, without an Army and no control over its own borders. Some negotiations you have there.

            He is just a teenager and was taken off line for a while and now earns some shekels by posting usual nonsense.

            I don’t think he’s Hasbara. Hasbarats are more competent than this. Probably a twelve year old whom nobody will play with.

      What happened the last time you tried to invade Lebanon?

    4. Frank says:

      Frankly, you are a retarded child.

    1. Random Dude says:

      yeah sure, maybe 2months ago. but now things are moving in opposite direction.

    2. Frank says:

      All the banana republics of the Caucasus have no hope without Russia and they need to rejoin the motherland.

    TURKISH PIGS IN THE REGION BRINGS INSTABILITY ONLY, AND AT THE END OF THE DAY, BAKU WILL LOSE NAGORNO KARABAH FOREVER, WHILE RUSSIA WILL EXPAND. BLAME ERDOMUZDOGAN FOR THAT!

    1. JIMI JAMES says:

      Russia ain’t the problem dumocrat,maybe you ought see policys in greece under your lgbtq eu-epp 4th reicht tyranny sect,you fool not intellect nor real deal diligent christian peoples,
      save it for the new kweerbar the eu proposing over there,no wonder your democracys fooked!(a vre p00sti)

    2. Random Dude says:

      You are way too much emotionally invested in this conflict. Are you possibly not happy with the outcome?

  4. Fog of War says:

    ” Turkish troops will likely be technicians, who will be deployed in a joint observation center located in the Azerbaijani-held areas in the region. ”

    SF must be kidding. All technicians I’m sure, thousands of well armed technicians.

    1. Mark M. Nobelman says:

      SF is still in denial to the clear facts. Turkey can freely deploy to all Azerbaijani held territories with their invitation since they have defense treaty. Including Nagorno Karabakh. The minister said ”Soldiers” Not technicians. Aliyev asked for their deployment

    2. ΠΑΡΜΕΝΙΩΝ says:

      Exactly.!! They will be well-equipped troops that will have the role of “engineer”. But explain to me, WHY and HOW Russia changed its attitude, and from where Lavrov said no Turkish army in the NK … now they say about a Turkish engineer ?? What is responsible for the change of attitude of Russia ??? DOES ANYONE KNOW ??

      1. Mark M. Nobelman says:

        Lavrov meant on the Armenian side Not Nagorno Karabakh is what I understand. Turkey will deploy to Azeri regained territories in Nargorno Karabakh. Alot of thing has been lost in translation imo.

        The Russians are stationed in Armenian held Artsakh not Azerbaijani held Nagorno-Karabakh.

        Turkey will freely operate in Nagorno-Karabakh Azerbaijan held areas

        1. ΠΑΡΜΕΝΙΩΝ says:

          The point is that Turkey decides and does WHAT IT WANTS without even asking Russia. Turkey is NO LONGER CONTROLLED by Russia ...

          Turkey, which deployed hundreds of Syrian mercenaries to fight on the front lines for Karabakh, is now alleged to be sending Syrian families in territories it occupies to go join them as settlers, reports Sky News Arabia.

          https://www.skynewsarabia.com/world/1394132-%D8%AE%D8%B7%D9%88%D8%A7%D8%AA-%D8%AA%D8%B1%D9%83%D9%8A%D8%A9-%D9%85%D8%B1%D9%8A%D8%A8%D8%A9-%D9%83%D8%A7%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%A8%D8%A7%D8%AE-%D8%B3%D9%88%D8%B1%D9%8A%D9%88%D9%86-%D9%83%D8%B1%D8%AF%D8%B3%D8%AA%D8%A7%D9%86-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AD%D9%85%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%A1

          1. Mark M. Nobelman says:

            This is just poorly executed propaganda. Nobody has intention of resettling anyone. It’s an Azeri land

          2. ΠΑΡΜΕΝΙΩΝ says:

            Was it also propaganda that Turkey brought jihadists from Syria ??? Was it also propaganda that in occupied Cyprus Turkey brought settlers from the depths of Turkey, whom even the Turkish Cypriots do not want ???

            FACTS always show what is happening. In a little while you will see that I am right.

          3. ΠΑΡΜΕΝΙΩΝ says:

            It is much more honest to tell me that you are pro-Turkish, than to say that everything is propaganda. Are you pro-Turkish yes or no ??

  5. Fog of War says:

    ” Shoygu added that Russian peacekeepers will be working to facilitate the return of refugees as well as to prevent bloodshed in the region. ”

    Blood shed caused by whom ? It wont be from the Azeri side, so who are these troops really aimed at ?

    1. Random Dude says:

      Its about gradual handover of all territories to Azerbaijan, and Russian peacekeepers will stick around for a while to make sure the transition is smooth

      1. Frank says:

        Russia is a permanent presence in NK and the region. Don’t fool yourself. Just rules, just one phone call warning to Aliyev ended the war.

        1. Porc Halal says:

          absolutely

          1. Porc Halal says:

            Ps… that’s how I see things on this issue

        2. Random Dude says:

          What I post are facts, what you post is your personal opinion what you think might or might not happen in future.
          http://en.kremlin.ru/acts/news/64384 Check point number 4.

  6. Random Dude says:

    Usually in other conflict agreements peacekeepers deployment is automatically renewed unless both conflict parties consent to removal.
    In this conflict, peacekeepers are there for 5 years, unless before the end of term only one party files for removal.
    Just a statement for thought. Bygones be bygones.

  7. Ashok Varma says:

    Russia now has regained control over the Caucasus and Turkey has been sidelined. Russian border guards will control NK and Azerbaijan has basically been rendered toothless.

    1. BMWA1 says:

      Unfortunately, Georgia sans ABKAZIA-OSSETIA still possible weak point. Anti-terror ops still active by Ru military…friend in Russian Army got a service Medal… Active service, three years ago…but no big successful attacks by NATO and Sandi funded tenor forces there…so maybe improving?

      1. Frank says:

        Russia has shown the Turkeys who is the boss.

    2. Mark M. Nobelman says:

      Hulusi Akar the Turkish minister never said technicians but Turkish soldiers. The editor is still trolling his audience and lying to them and I don’t understand why.

      Turkey has defense treaty with Azerbaijan they can deploy as much troops as they like in Azeri held NK.

      On the contrary Turkey is not sideline. Azerbaijan is Turkey and Turkey is Azerbaijan. It is the same entity

  8. Porc Halal says:

    As I mentioned many times before, no turdish soldier will participate in the so called peace keeping task force…there is no evidence of that, not a single one, there is no russian statement or any other side involved except the lies of the turdish side to support such stupid claim…even the turdish prime miniSSter faild to provide a deployment date of its jihadi janissaries, I quote “Our preparations are completed. As a requirement of this resolution, Turkish soldiers will start their duty in Azerbaijan as soon as possible,” …well in this case, ie N-K peace keeping task force participation, “as soon as possible” means “never”…

    1. Frank says:

      Turkey has been sidelined finally put in a box. The Russians have had enough of the Anatolian mongol upstarts.

      1. Porc Halal says:

        I agree

  9. Frank says:

    Frankly, Turkey has come out looking like Turkey and a Russian cuckold. The Russian Federation is the boss of the region.
