Russian military in Armenia reinforce areas near Azeri border- agencies

Russia’s military set up two new military sites in the south of Armenia near the Azeri border as an «additional security guarantee» following last year’s conflict, Russian news agencies reported, citing Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. Russia is a close ally of Armenia, an impoverished former Soviet republic of less than 3 million people, and has a military base in the northwest of the country. Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces fought a six-week war over Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding areas last year until the conflict was halted by a Russia-brokered deal in November, locking in territorial gains for Azerbaijan and establishing presence of Russian peacekeepers in the conflict zone.
