Protesters demanding the resignation of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan gathered together to block traffic and cause disruption on multiple central streets in Yerevan, including Mesrop Mashtots Avenue, on Tuesday.

The footage shows several demonstrators with Armenian flags and a loudspeaker climbing on a trolleybus roof, while other protesters stood in line with flares while chanting slogans.

"All our friends and soldiers died for a political game played by the man who is currently the Prime Minister of Armenia," said protester Vardan Papikyan.

During the protest, policemen pushed demonstrators off the streets, so rally participants went to the government building on Republic square, where they faced a cordon set up by local law enforcement officers.

According to local media reports, 35 people were detained during the protest.

Following more than six weeks of hostilities, Armenia and Azerbaijan signed a Russian-brokered deal to end the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh on November 9th.

Under the terms of the deal, 1,960 Russian peacekeepers will be deployed in the region to monitor the ceasefire.
