Selin ATAY-TDO- After the Nagorno-Karabakh agreement brokered by Russia, there was a political crisis in Armenia. Armenia's administration has increased its post-crisis measures.
Armenia's Defense Ministry has declared a no-fly zone in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, excluding military aircraft.
Calling the Nagorno-Karabakh agreement a defeat and calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, thousands of people held demonstrations in front of the parliament building in the capital Yerevan. During the demonstrations, 10 leading opposition figures protesting the peace deal, which Moscow has brokered, were arrested by police forces.
The detained dissidents could face up to 10 years in prison for their role in the "unlawful violent mass turmoil," prosecutors said in a statement.
Armenia announced that more than 2,300 Armenian soldiers were killed in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, which began in September. "At this time, the funerals of 2,317 soldiers, including unidentified bodies, have been delivered to the Medical Center," Alina Nikoghosian, a spokeswoman for the Armenian Justice Ministry, said via Facebook.
Another entity, Azerbaijan, said 93 civilians were killed in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, but did not give any number of military casualties.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that more than 4 thousand people were killed and more than 8 thousand were injured in the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.
The peace agreement signed between Azerbaijan and Armenia under the supervision of Russia entered into force on November 10. According to the agreement, Armenia will end its occupation of the territory surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh. Armenia's surrender of the Lands of Agdam, Lachin and Kerbajer to Azerbaijan is also involved in the capture of the agreement. In addition, civilians who have left their places will return to their homes under the supervision of the United Nations, and funerals with prisoners will be exchanged mutually.
