They decided to include Armenia in the exercises of the Southern Military District of the Russian Federation amid the conflict with Baku


Amid complications with Azerbaijan, it was decided to include the Armenian military in the exercises of the Southern Military District of the Russian Armed Forces. This was announced during a briefing in Ijevan by the representative of the Armenian military department, coordinator of the crisis information center Artsrun Hovhannisyan.


The armed forces of Armenia, together with the army of Russia, in particular with the 102nd military base, within the framework of these exercises have joint activities both on the territory of Armenia and at other training grounds.

- stated Hovhannisyan.

Hovhannisyan said that given the conflict with Baku, significant forces will take part in the exercises from Yerevan. He explained that the total number of Armenian soldiers will be about one regiment. Tanks and artillery will be involved.

It should be noted that on July 17, 2020, the troops of the Southern Military District of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation were alerted as part of a sudden check of combat readiness. Located on the territory of Armenia, in Gyumri and Yerevan, the 102nd Order of Alexander Nevsky, the Russian military base (military unit 04436) is also part of the Southern Military District. The indicated base bears combat duty within the framework of the integrated air defense system of the CIS countries.

The base personnel is about 4 thousand military personnel (it is completed exclusively by contract soldiers). The base is armed with S-300V, Buk-M1-2 air defense systems, MiG-29 multi-functional fighters, Mi-24P attack helicopters and Mi-8MT military transport aircraft.

    Someone said that both states are brotherly for Russia and he is right! Alas and ah! You should not indulge in religious confessions here.

      That’s what the military provocation was intended for, to mischief the Azerbaijanis and hide behind the Russian back ... But so that no one would be offended, simultaneously with the exercises with the Azerbaijani regiment on the Azerbaijani territory near the borders of Armenia ... it would be fair ...

    - Yes, what exercises are there ... - Armenia will simply receive certain Russian weapons (and of course ... - free of charge) ... - Armenians will come to these exercises on ... on "donkeys" ...; but they will go back already: on MLRS, brand new armored personnel carriers; and new Russian artillery systems ... - The "Coalition" is unlikely to be given, but the "Msta-SM2" can be presented to the Armenians ... - well, and much more ...

      Where is there something new to come from? There, the armament is still inherited from the 127th MSD of the 7th OA SV SVKVO of the USSR, and the Russian 102nd WB was created on its basis .... (in fact, reinforced MSBr.) ...

    In vain. It is not known who provoked the conflict, and we are already starting to anger the neighbors of Armenia, with whom the latter has a bad relationship.
    Now these neighbors, even those who had not previously considered the threat from the Russian WB in Armenia, will try to stop it in the future ...
    By the way, during the war on 08.08.08/XNUMX/XNUMX, the indicated WB did not show any activity, I think it was not in vain done ....

      This base is still not showing any activity. Logistics issues have not been canceled. Has anyone heard of shipments to Syria through this base? Without unblocking the train via Azerbaijan, nothing from this base will come of it.
      As far as I understand, it is rather an air defense base.

        The most important step in the implementation of the UN Security Council resolution on the Karabakh settlement is the signing by the parties of the document adopted in April 2019 in Moscow
        ------
        "These documents imply progress in the settlement on the basis of a step-by-step approach. I believe, at the first stage, the solution of the most pressing problems, the liberation of a number of regions around Nagorno-Karabakh and the unblocking of transport, economic and other communications," Lavrov said.

        Interestingly, what exactly did Lavrov mean?

          Lavrov is a real surname since childhood Laverman, a Jew by his father, an Armenian by his mother, so you also need to make corrections for this ... similar, - the main advisers to the president, etc ...), because such political actions and consequences. (Israel is freely bombing in Syria, etc.) Therefore, the Russian Federation has no allies, because the interests of the leadership are somewhat different ...

            Lavrov is the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia. Regardless of the surname. If the Russian Foreign Minister defends the interests of another state, then a discussion is simply meaningless.
            Let me remind you that Catherine II, the very Great One, was German. And she even spoke and wrote poorly in Russian.
            -----
            Specifically on this issue and in connection with the base in Gyumri. Why for Russia (specifically for Russia, and not for Armenia or Israel) unblocking railway communication between Armenia and Azerbaijan looks like a priority task? By the way, this is not only Lavrov speaking. This is also stated in the link above, which was kindly provided by Sergey.

            due to the aforementioned geographical isolation in the event of war, the supply of 102nd base and the Armenian army from Russia is only possible in a roundabout way through the Caspian Sea and Iran, which is very long, expensive and not entirely reliable (both politically and purely militarily) ...

            In the opinion of the interlocutor of the edition, due to these circumstances, the 102nd military base is currently not so much military as political.

              You naive person, of course, Laverman should work "correctly" for the Russian Federation, but "the devil is in the details." Yes, and Lavrov’s daughter lives with the ardent enemy of the Russian Federation in the USA, I wonder why this would happen in Switzerland or Germany ... According to history, Catherine 2 expanded the territory of Russia, but Russia itself, or rather, its people, was beaten into a hundred-year backwardness and enslavement , which is why for centuries it was only a buyer of everything in Europe, and even at the expense of Russia, Germany was elevated. An old saying - if the enemies praise (and E-2 all the enemies of Russia praise), it means the opposite for Russia. It is impossible to judge all Transcaucasian cases by obscure and fraudulent stuffing by the media, everything is more difficult with undercover games and unspoken agreements ...

                Oh well. You compare the personal data of politicians, and I, as a naive person, will look at their actions.
                The fact that children and capital over the hill is the biggest problem in Russia. But they are not in Azerbaijan or Armenia?

                    You might think that you personally receive the information directly from the General Staff of Azerbaijan, Armenia and Russia. And from all three at once.
                    Not a single person here has any information other than from the media.

                Just for my erudition - what ruler of Russia over the last 400 years (the Romanovs' rule) do you consider worthy?

                  The Romanov dynasty came to power by fraud. When choosing temporarily the first Romanov, Mikhail, to the kingdom, it was decided after two years of reign to elect a tsar in a new way (because there was a troubled time), but the Romanovs bribed the most influential and there were no elections. So, the Romanovs are not a legitimate royal dynasty, but a usurper. The Romanov dynasty brought only misfortune for the peoples of the Russian Empire. There were several with more successful rule, these were A-2 (Liberator), - serfdom was canceled, and A-3 (Peacemaker), - during which Russia did not wage a single war ... But still, Russia vegetated and rotted in backwardness in the autocratic reign of this dynasty ... It was not in vain that the people popularly rejoiced at the renunciation of N-2 ...

                    Alexandra and 2 and 3 were relatively better. But still, probably, the best was Alexei Mikhailovich. But this is a matter of taste.
                    So, in your opinion, all 400 years (from the accession of the Romanovs) Russia has "vegetated and rotted in backwardness." I am afraid that most of those present will not agree with you.

        This base is still not showing any activity.

        And what kind of activity in peacetime it should show, being on the territory of a foreign state ....?

        Nobody canceled the logistics issues. Has anyone heard of supplies to Syria through this base? Without unblocking the railway message via Azerbaijan, nothing from this base will come of

        L / s WB can be evacuated through Iran ....
        Why then do we keep our troops in the PMR, there are enemies everywhere and evacuation is impossible ...?
        In general, I did not find examples in world practice where the WB of a foreign state was located on the territory of another foreign state for its protection and surrounded by hostile states ....
        In fact, the 102nd WB of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in Armenia is a camp of armed prisoners of war ....

        As far as I understand, this is more of an air defense base.

        Judging by the type of weaponry and its number, you misunderstand ...
        The 988th anti-aircraft missile regiment located there is equipped with the S-300V air defense system (military air defense air defense system), its task is to cover troops, and not any industrial or other strategic military and civilian targets ....
        Air defense of the Russian Armed Forces in Armenia is represented by: 18 MiG-29 fighters of the 426th air group and the 700th air transport control center (locator system) located at the 3624th air base at Erebuni Airport ...
        So the 102nd WB of the RF Armed Forces (4 military units) cannot be called the Air Defense Base .... most of the WB is represented by the RF Armed Forces Ground Force, and the number of fighters has been increased relatively recently ...
        And finally:

        However, the ultimately, Armenians should be offended only by themselves. They were quite adult and conscientious people when they were at the forefront of the liquidation of the USSR.. Armenia behaved more civilly and correctly than a number of other former union republics, but to independence, it was extremely active and confident. Its citizens should have obviously been fully aware of what, to put it mildly, a very difficult geopolitical situation in independent Armenia. Here she was in it. It couldn't be otherwise.

          Let's first define the composition of the database.

          The base is equipped with S-300V anti-aircraft missile systems (988th anti-aircraft missile regiment), MiG-29 fighters, Mi-24P and Mi-8MT helicopters (part of the 3624th air base, Erebuni airfield near Yerevan). The number of personnel of the base is about 4 thousand people

          There were reports that they want to double the number. But I have not heard anything about the implementation of these plans. There is old data.

          The base fulfills the tasks of strategic deterrence, is involved in combat duty of air defense systems and assists the border detachments of the regional border department of the FSB of Russia in the Republic of Armenia.

          https://www.kavkaz-uzel.eu/articles/152315/

          Three SMEs are a division, as I understand it. But in terms of numbers, rather, a reinforced regiment with air defense systems. The main purpose is precisely air defense. Since Armenia takes over the protection of the border. In any case, two years ago there was such information.
