In this new podcast–the second in her series–Halyna Mokrushyna and Pietro Shakarian discuss the peace agreement on Nagorno-Karabakh that has put end to hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed region.
The agreement was mediated by the president of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and was co-signed by him, by the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and by the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan on November 9.
They discuss the terms of the agreement, what it means for all parties involved and who is the winner and who is the loser in the situation resulting from the agreement.
