Arriving in Yerevan within the framework of the visit of the Russian interdepartmental delegation on the morning of November 21, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu left for Baku after meeting with the Armenian leadership and met with Ilham Aliyev.

In the context of Shoigu's visits to Yerevan and Baku, there is an episode that may seem trivial at first glance, but perhaps one of the details in which, according to the British, "there is a devil."

Shoigu was in civilian clothes during the meetings with the Prime Minister and the Minister of Defense of Armenia. Leaving for Baku in the afternoon, he was already in a military uniform at the meeting with Aliyev.

What is the reason for this "dress code" transformation of the Russian Defense Minister from Yerevan to Baku? Shoigu noted in Baku that peacekeepers are deployed, take full control of the region and the ceasefire is maintained, expressing hope that this will continue in the future.

After the November 9 agreement, there have been demonstrations and protests in Baku over the Russian military presence in Karabakh. Prior to Shoigu's visit, Russian President Vladimir Putin also spoke of the need to abide by the agreement, as its alternative is war. Following the example of Ossetia and Abkhazia, he hinted at what might happen if Russian peacekeepers came under fire.
