Why, instead of Azerbaijan, Armenia began to fight with the Russian language

The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan received an unexpected continuation. Yerevan dealt a crushing blow ... to the Russian language. The aim of the draft law "On Audiovisual Media" is to get rid of "foreign influence". By all appearances, “influence” refers to the work of the TV channels Russia, Channel One, Mir and Kultura. As a result, programs in Russian will completely disappear from the free broadcasting network.

In Armenia itself, this decision was commented as follows:

Foreign TV channels can broadcast either on the basis of interstate treaties, or if they are of public benefit, broadcast universal content and do not have political or the propaganda components of the agenda of the country from which they broadcast.

This attack on the side of the “great and mighty” looks very strange. Armenia is a member of the Eurasian Union and the CSTO; there is a Russian military base on its territory. By and large, it is our country that is the guarantor of security for Yerevan in its long-standing and bitter conflict with Baku. Now Turkey is ready to take the side of Azerbaijan, which has the second strongest army in NATO. The question remains, how timely and adequate are the actions of the Armenian Parliament? Is Yerevan really ready to meet the Azerbaijani and Turkish hordes alone, and does it absolutely not need peacekeeping assistance from Moscow?

The Russophobic actions of the Armenian authorities look harmful and dangerous primarily for Armenia itself. From the outside, it may seem strange, but, looking closely, you can really see a malicious external influence in them. But not from the Kremlin, but from the West.

If desired, the roots of this destructive policy can be seen in the results of the activities of the Open Society Armenia Foundation, otherwise known as the Soros Foundation. This NGO began operating in the Transcaucasian Republic in 1997. The ex-head of the National Security Service Artur Vanetsyan, who was removed from office by the new Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, recently announced that the Fund poses a danger to Armenia. What have the "Sorosets" been doing all these years?

At first, this Fund, as well as a number of other organizations funded from abroad, actively promoted liberal ideas, insisting on reducing the role of the state in the economy... Note that this creates the preconditions for privatization processes and the emergence, as a result, of a local oligarchy closely associated with large Western capital.

Secondly, there is a so-called "flashing" of values ​​among young people through educational programs. Under the influence of Soros's structure, military-patriotic circles were closed, and the question of removing the subject “History of the Armenian Church” from the school curriculum was raised.

ThirdlyAs a result of such “training”, a “new elite” of the country was formed, which got into the state authorities, capable of leaking the necessary information to the curators and promoting the agenda they need.

It is no secret that in modern Ukraine the tone is set precisely by the former "Soros", who defend the interests of anyone except their own country. It is very likely that now they have raised their heads in Armenia. The "expulsion" of the Russian language from television, if it hurts anyone, is first of all Yerevan itself.

    And what about the Russian language in Azerbaijan? The Russian government should help the country that is more loyal to the Russian language. For example, make it the language of international communication, or official.
    In general, Russia can extend a railway line through Azerbaijan to Iran and the Indian Ocean. And what can Russia reach through Armenia? It is necessary to help the one who is more beneficial for Russia.

In general, if geopolitics is not that important to you, then get ready for a war on your territory with your citizens. And even more so, Ukraine could not be given away with its nuclear power plants, if anything, the entire south of Russia would be unfit for life, so think about whether it is necessary to interfere in geopolitics or wait to sit.

And I am of the opinion that the Russian Federation needs to follow the example of Saudi Arabia in matters of citizenship and not distribute it to just anyone. Nuclear power plants in Ukraine are also on the border with Poland. If Ukraine begins to stir up trouble with nuclear weapons, dirty bombs, or something like that, the Russians will have to move beyond the Urals, and the UKROPS will have to die in their Chernobyl. And in general, what does it mean to give ?! Dill what - furniture ?! They themselves left, and not for the first time, they always rotted and betrayed, from Mazepa to Bandera and Kuchma with Kravchuk.

        The United States is carrying out in Armenia, as it once did in Georgia, an anti-Russian restructuring, in fact, a coup (a revolution in Prime Minister N. Pashinyan). Russia needs to show the Armenian government that it will not work to sit on two chairs and spit on Russia. Withdraw the troops from Gyumri, leaving the guards. In the CSTO, adopt a resolution on the non-application of protection to the aggressor members ... Armenia will be left alone with the impossibly bloated US diplomatic corps ... Further rapprochement with Azerbaijan and Turkey and the return of N. Karabakh to Azerbaijan - as a consequence of the US policy in Armenia ... Only real actions lead everyone to real thinking ...

And there is no need to sing songs about wolves looking into the forest. With Ukraine as a friendly state, many problems in Russia could simply have been avoided and "free" resources could have been used for other purposes.

      Of course, Biden and Nuland are not idiots. They went out to hand out cookies only when the area was under the full control of the US military. Not a single berkutov, not a single pravosek with brass knuckles. Only American soldiers in civilian clothes. Hence the success of the Maidan - the police and special forces of Ukraine opposed the American army, which completely controlled the neighborhoods around. And the shooting of Maidan was the work of Biden to speed up the process of transferring Ukraine to him on lease. Nobody asked Yanukovych and did not consider him a figure.

    I repeat for those in the tank. Pashinyan is a protege of Russia. Russia will never admit a pro-Western ruler to the helm of Armenia. And he will do the right thing. What are you? Naive .. Do you think who organized and why the terrorist attack in the Parliament of Armenia? It was then that there was a real threat to the drain of Armenia to the West.

    The name and surname are fake. I am an Armenian and an Armenian pro-Russian to the core. Although I have never been to Russia.

      You do not mislead, the revolution and the coup in Armenia was organized by the United States, brought its N. Pashinyan to power, about the Russian government was dispersed, the prime minister was arrested - do not lie so openly ... Perhaps you are from the US Embassy in Armenia, there for 1800 employees of this embassy, ​​when previously usually up to two dozen worked ... Armenia was sent along the path of Georgia, and N. Pashinyan, the second M. Saakashvili in Armenia ...

      A pro-Russian Armenian is like a "pro-Iranian Jew" today. Serzh Sargsyan gave up the steering wheel so easily because he was ordered to. The question is who ordered it. Russia? Funny !!!! State Department? Warmer, but not hot.
      But there is an Armenian lobby in the US Congress. The second most influential after the Israeli.
      This lobby, representing the interests of the entire American Armenians, approves all the top officials of Armenia. Both Sargsyan and Pashinyan.

    This military garbage, which has not been solved in any way for more than 30 years

    The British fought with the French for 100 years. Even the war was called the "Hundred Years War".
    The Spaniards believe that their Reconquista (at the beginning of which, in fact, there were no Spaniards yet) generally lasted 800 years. And you've only been fighting for 30 years :)))
    The problem is that it is impossible to solve your problem with your neighbors peacefully.
    Well, you won, taking advantage of the internal turmoil .. and the actual civil war in Azerbaijan 20% of their territory. Well, the Germans in 1942 also occupied about 15% of the territory of the USSR.
    So what? In your opinion, newspapers and other printed publications of the USSR, calling at that time to destroy the Germans like plague rats, sowed enmity and ethnic strife ???

    pro-Russian government dispersed

    God be with you, where does the "pro-Russian government" come from in Armenia ?? Where did you see him there? Take the same Serzh Sargsyan. Perhaps you did not know, but Serzhik is the first and so far the only of all foreign (for the United States) presidents to be awarded the Ellis Island Medal during his visit to the United States in 2011. Look on the Internet for what this medal is given.

    "Mr. President!", - the head of the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations of the United States (NECO) Nasser Casemini addressed Sargsyan, - "For everything that you have done for your country and Armenian-American relations, history will remember Respectfully yours. "

    Serzh Sargsyan thanked for the award and noted: “Today I accept this award with excitement and pride, including on behalf of the Armenians who passed through Ellis Island, their generation, I accept it as an assessment of the success of our people on these distant shores, as symbol of further development of the Armenian-American friendship and cooperation... I realize that I am the first non-American president to receive this award. ”

    Pashinyan, by the way, is unlikely to receive such a medal. For he does not know as well as Sargsyan (and the previous leaders of Armenia) to hide his true attitude towards Russia.

      The main thing is what is happening in Armenia with the people now, and there is a turn in politics, a departure from Russia and a turn to NATO and the West, a typical "Georgian history" according to the US templates ... Personalities are not even decisive here, too powerful forces are involved. It's like a front-line operation, when they throw all their forces into one sector and win. Today for the United States this area is Armenia.

        I will support the previous commentator. To understand the question, you need to look at the historical retrospective. The peak of "Armenian dominance" in Russia is the end of the reign of Alexander II the Liberator. The Prime Minister of the Empire was then Loris-Melikov. He pursued his policy earlier. At the end of the Caucasian War, the emissaries of the then not yet prime minister, but already quite influential Loris-Melikov, went to Turkey to agitate Turkish Armenians to move to Russia. The number of Armenians wishing to move to Russia was negligible. But according to reports, it turned out that a lot. For potential settlers, they began to liberate the land, evicting the Circassians to Turkey. Then Loris-Melikov, already in the post of prime minister, neglecting his duty to protect the Emperor, began to compose a "liberal constitution" for Russia. That in it one could only guess. But Alexander II the Liberator was blown up and the new Emperor Alexander III the Peacemaker expelled Loris-Melikov and almost all other Armenians from the civil service. Left only Delyanov. By whose hands he banned the Armenian parish schools. Then Nicholas II carried out the secularization of land and real estate belonging to the Gregorian Church. All this infuriated the Armenian politicians of those years. As a result, a decision was made. First, with the help of Russia, which needs to be drawn into the war with Turkey, bite off a piece of Turkey. To do this, you need to present Turkey as a kind of "bloody sultanism". Then, with the help of the United States and Western democracies, to force "bloody tsarism" to give up those territories of the Russian Empire that the Armenians considered "theirs." As if with a wave of one conductor's baton, Jewish pogroms began in Russia, then, taking into account the Russian experience, Armenian pogroms began in Turkey. Newspapers of the West were full of notes and caricatures of "Bloody Tsarism" and "Bloody Sultanism". Everything went according to plan. The war began. Our victories began on the Caucasian front and our failures on the German. But an unforeseen factor intervened. Revolutions in Russia and Turkey. But while Armenia was independent, in 1920 the Armenian delegation to the Paris Peace Conference went out of their way to force US President Wilson to take Armenia under the US mandate. Wilson promised. But the issue had to be coordinated with the US Congress. But the US Congress for some reason refused. The Armenians drew the proper conclusions from this breakdown. And by the time the USSR collapsed in the US Congress, the Armenian lobby was firmly entrenched in the second position, after the Israeli one. After the USSR collapsed, the lobby demanded that the US Presidential Administration ensure the security of Armenia, and then the State Department began to scratch their turnips. You cannot refuse the Armenian lobby. But Armenia cannot be admitted to NATO either, since Armenia itself does not want to give up territorial claims to the old NATO member Turkey. It is possible to create a US base in Armenia. But this step will not be understood not only by Turkey, but also by American taxpayers. As a result, the State Department gave "valuable advice." Let Armenia turn to Russia for help, and the State Department will instruct Kozyrev to satisfy all the requests of the Armenian side. Organize a base in Armenia and accept Armenia into the CSTO. Since then, Armenia has been playing this game: "Armenia is Russia's best friend." For almost 30 years, all the top officials of Armenia have successfully played this game.

        Shorter again.
        So, for almost 30 years, all the top officials of Armenia have been playing the game that the Armenian lobby in the US Congress instructed them to play. Namely, the game: "Armenia is Russia's best friend and ally."

        Sargsyan was a particularly good player. For his professionalism, he became the first (and so far the only) foreign president (for the United States) to be awarded the special Ellis Island Medal in the United States for his enormous contribution to the development of Armenian-American friendship and cooperation.

        And this US award winner (that is, a person who is oriented towards the USA) Sargsyan was overthrown by the even more USA-oriented Pashinyan.

        And the United States is still in a stupor. They don't really understand what to do. For 30 years everything has been fine-tuned. Armenian top officials sing songs about the great love of the Armenian people for the great Russian people, and in return they receive our Russian roof. And the United States is standing on the sidelines and rubbing its hands.

        And then suddenly an even more pro-American person came to power, who for some reason does not really want to continue singing these songs.

        In Romania, on the eve of the Great Patriotic War, there was a similar situation. But there the process took a different path. So before the war, Romania was led in principle by a very pro-Hitler-minded Great Conductor Antonescu.

        But in Romania there was an even more pro-Hitler party of Horia Sima, the Iron Guard. So this Sima wanted to overthrow Antonescu. And luck could well smile at him. Since Sima had an excellent relationship with Himmler.

        But Hitler considered that they were not looking for good from good and gave the order to assist Antonescu, and not Sime.

        I have the impression that two stupid State Department buffets stupidly failed to agree on Armenia in the State Department. Or, more precisely, the GosDepovskiy buffet did not agree with the GosDepovskiy toilet bowl. The sideboard supported Sargsyan, and the toilet took and drained him. In favor of Pashinyan.

    The same insinuations were under Kocharyan and under Sarkisian. Now everyone is blaming Pashinyan. Someone really wants to embroil Russia with Armenia. So they come up with messages sucked out of the finger. Here, of course, the Turks and Azerbaijanis put their hand, bribed, paid. So the corrupt "militants" of the information front come up with all sorts of fables taken from the ceiling. Not without it. Armenia will never buy American gingerbread. And don't dream. Armenians speak Russian much better than others. You are trying in vain, the Armenian-Russian friendship has been tested for centuries and the pitiful inclinations of any enemies will not shake the fraternal relations.
    1. Sergey Petrovich (Sergei) 27 August 2020 16: 08
      What are you talking about ? What kind of "Armenian-Russian friendship", and even "tested for centuries" ??? What centuries? Where is this "friendship"?
      Is this how our “Armenian brothers” allegedly helped us? Let's finally learn how to separate flies from cutlets and start judging not by words, but by deeds. In the history of Russia, there were not many cases when we really needed help.
      Well, for example, 1380, Kulikovo Field. The huge army of Khan Mamai is against us. Where are the "Armenian volunteers"? With us? No, they are against us as part of the army of Khan Mamai.
      1612, Poles in the Kremlin. The Tatars came to the aid of the Militia of Minin and Pozharsky, the Bashkirs came, even some Siberian princes came. At least one Armenian came from the Caucasus near Moscow to help us liberate Moscow from the Poles? No, he didn't come !!!
      1709, Poltava. We are against the Swedes. Has at least one detachment of volunteers from Armenia come to our aid near Poltava? No, he didn't come.
      1711, Prut campaign. Our army is surrounded by the Turks! Where are the Armenian volunteers? Where are the Armenian uprisings in the rear of the Turks? There are no volunteers, no uprisings.
      1812, Borodino. What, maybe at least one detachment of Armenian volunteers came near Borodino? No, he didn't come. Although they say that on the Don, the Armenians tried to gather some kind of detachment - but where it went, no one knows. The money was collected for it - the detachment disappeared.

      1853-1855 years. Crimean War. Against us are England, France, Turkey and Sardinia, which has joined them. Have Armenians raised at least one uprising in Turkey? No, they didn't.
      So when did the Armenians "help" us? When did we not need help?
      It's like, "What are you doing, eat candy? Give it to me, I'm your ally, I'll help you eat your candy."
      Here our troops stood in Gyumri (Alexandropol) in 1813. They stood up to protect the Armenians from Turkey and Persia. So to speak, they covered the front. And what did the Armenians do at this time in our rear, in the North Caucasus.

      The slave trade, practiced in the region for centuries, caused the emergence of intermediaries in the person of merchants, who turned the slave trade into a special craft. In the Accident, some of the slaves were sold to eastern merchants through buyers in Derbent, Tarki, Aksai ... According to the testimony of pre-revolutionary authors, “... This kind of trade was intensively engaged in by the Armenians, who did not abandon this craft even with the appearance of the Russians in the Caucasus. Taking advantage of their position, they helped the highlanders to steal people within our borders, receiving an appropriate reward from the highlanders for this, and then helped the Russian Government in negotiations with the highlanders on the ransom of the same prisoners - also not without compensation, or they themselves ransomed them in order to resell them to the Russians ...

      An article from the late 19th century. Maybe this is an accident? Here's another reference.

      A.A. Novoselsky. The struggle of the Moscow state with the Tatars in the first half of the 1948th century. M.-L., 208.S. XNUMX.

      On July 10 [1631], the Moscow envoys in the Crimea, Voeikov and Zverev, learned that a Russian was brought to Bakhchisarai to be sold overseas. The interpreter and the clerk brought to the camp Andrei Lazarev, a stanitsa Cossack from Ryazhsk, who said that he had been taken full of Tatars (there were 500 Nogai and 80 Crimeans) in Petrovskaya Sloboda; all full - 75 people; of this number, the Crimeans got 25 people. Five people chose “head duties” for the tsar: the boyar's son, two village Cossacks and two wives. They brought them to Bakhchisarai and set them before the king; the tsar questioned them and chose the little duck-haired woman Lyubavka for his yard, and gave the rest to the Armenians for sale overseas. However, the envoys defended A. Lazarev, despite the demands of the Armenians, and took him with them to Russia.
