GM: Active supply of Russian weapons to Armenia will have consequences


Against the background of the confrontation between Yerevan and Baku, the position of Moscow and its policy in the field of arms trade. Russia, as an ally of Armenia, supplies the latter with such types of weapons that Azerbaijan refuses to supply, including the Iskander-M mobile missile systems. The Canadian edition of Geopolitical Monitor (GM) has found out what consequences active supplies of Russian weapons to Armenia can have.


Russia has stepped up the sale of military equipment Armenia back in 2016. However, the Russian Federation supplied Azerbaijan with weapons even during the recent summer clashes on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. Nevertheless, there is a distinct tilt of Russian geopolitics towards Yerevan.

Armenia is a member of the Kremlin-led CSTO, on Armenian territory there is a Russian military contingent in the amount of about 3 thousand servicemen - they are included in the personnel of the military base in Gyumri and the air base near Yerevan. The Russian Federation is gradually integrating the Armenian Armed Forces into the structure of its Southern Military District, forming units of the joint ground forces. In August this year, on the eve of the escalation of violence in the Tovush region, Russia sent about seven trucks with weapons to help Armenia.

Geopolitical Monitor believes that Moscow's policy of recklessly arming Yerevan is fraught with the final withdrawal of Baku into the open arms of Ankara.

Russia underestimates the possible consequences of active arms supplies to Armenia, as well as its explicit support for Yerevan in the course of recent events. Moscow thus makes it clear to Azerbaijan that it can no longer count on the Russian Federation, and Ankara remains Baku's only ally in the region.

    GM: Active supply of Russian weapons to Armenia will have consequences

    - Yes, they will have "consequences" ... for the Russian taxpayer; since Armenia is absolutely NOT solvent; and Russia will supply Russian weapons ... - for nothing ...
    - And all these Armenian-Azerbaijani showdowns have been going on for more than 100 years and will continue as much ... - So Russia (Russian taxpayers) will have to fork out more than once ...

    The time has come to annex Nagorno-Karabakh to Russia, or to create an Independent Confederation of the unrecognized republics of the USSR, which will include Pridnestrovie, N. Karabakh, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, LDNR. It is even possible with the flag of the USSR. And help her in every possible way, up to the capture of the CSTO and Verazes. And then, possibly, to the Union State. In!

      Why are they needed ... - these "N. Karabakh, Abkhazia, South Ossetia" (they also forgot poverty-stricken Armenia) ...

    Russia's problem is that parasites and hucksters are in power. Therefore, they cannot think according to the state. In Armenia itself, open Russophobia is flourishing, but there are no demands to stop it. And I am against helping countries where there is even a hint of Russophobia!

    It is time for the Kremlin verbiage to decide how in a well-known anecdote - either take off the cross, or put on trousers. Or to be an Empire, or to sit quietly and do what they say from behind a puddle.

    Azerbaijan is not an ally of Russia and cannot be one because half of Dagestan is on their territory, where they have been forging them into Azerbaijanis since the times of the USSR, like other peoples in Stalin's Azerbaijan, they have always been facing the Turks, they just lived well in the USSR and they did not really twitch ... This Azerbaijan consists of the lands of Armenia, Iran, Dagestan and Georgia ..., they are only friends with the Turks precisely because!
