Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a Russia-brokered ceasefire on Nov. 10 that halted six weeks of clashes in the mountain enclave, which is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, but is mainly populated by ethnic Armenians. Around 2000 Russian peacekeepers have been deployed in the enclave under the ceasefire deal, which locked in Azeri advances.
