The war between Armenia and Azerbaijan has ended in the Southern Caucasus, but unrest continues to roil Armenia. Read more about the war and its resolution here.

Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian has warned of a possible coup attempt by the military. Yesterday, protestors broke their way into a government building, demanding his resignation.

Eric Mock of the Slavic Gospel Association explains the discontent: “A peace accord, a cessation of hostilities was announced. But that also resulted in previously Armenian land being given back to Azerbaijan. This didn’t sit well with the people of Armenia, and they were very upset with their prime minister. What we’re seeing now is a conflict with a high number of people in the population and the military against the leaders that negotiated this ceasefire.”
