How fragile is the ceasefire between Armenia and Azerbaijan?

Armenia has called on Russia to deploy troops along its border with Azerbaijan to prevent further violence.

The region of Nagorno-Karabakh has been disputed between Azerbaijan and Armenia for many years.

It’s led to several incidents of violence – including last year’s conflict that killed thousands of people.

That’s despite international efforts to bring peace to the region.

Armenia is now asking Russia to deploy troops along its border with Azerbaijan.

Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan says it’s the only solution to allow border demarcation without further violence.

But will Moscow send soldiers?
