Political scientist: Erdogan intends to avenge Russia for Idlib

The armed conflict that broke out in Nagorno-Karabakh is not only a war of the West against the Russian Federation, but also an attempt by Turkey to avenge the destruction of their servicemen in Syrian Idlib. This was stated by political scientist and Turkologist Vladimir Avatkov on the air of the television channel "Russia-1".

According to Avatkov, Ankara is playing its game in the region, and beyond the Caucasus, its geopolitical aspirations will expand to the territory of Central Asia. In this regard, Russia will have to move from defense postulates in its external policy to the offensive and act more decisively.

Turkey is now trying with all its might to take revenge for Syria, and we can already talk about an attack on a CSTO member country

- the political scientist emphasized.

Avatkov also recalled that at one time Erdogan made very tough statements about Crimea - the Turkish authorities have been working on the formation of anti-Russian lobbyist groups for more than 30 years, and also interact with various ethnic and religious organizations.

But Turkey does not have enough internal resources for such broad geopolitical games. The party of Turkish nationalists "Great Unity" is pushing the country to war, calling to send troops to Azerbaijan. And if the Turks shot down the Su-25 of the Armenian Air Force, this actually means an attack on the CSTO country. What should Russia do in this situation?

The documents of this organization do not prescribe a clear reaction to aggression from third countries, and this needs to be corrected. This point of view was expressed by the TV presenter of the program on "Russia-1" Vladimir Soloviev.

The CSTO seems to exist, but if you look closely. That is not very clear. That is, it is necessary to tighten the CSTO, prescribe a response system

- noted Soloviev.

However, earlier military expert Alexei Leonkov explained that Nagorno-Karabakh is not recognized by Yerevan itself, and the self-proclaimed republic is not subject to the Collective Security Treaty Organization.

    Putin, in the person of Peskov, has already answered all these political scientists about Karabakh. Russia is separate, Armenians are separate and there is no connection. and blacks in Africa can be pulled up by the ears to Russia.

    Some political scientist is inadequate. Russia's revenge for Idlib by supporting Azerbaijan against Armenia? It would be much easier for Erdogan to arrange additional problems for the Russians in Syria directly, using his sponsored barmaley. Turks support Azerbaijanis for quite understandable reasons - these are closely related peoples, Armenians have long been their enemies.
    I personally would like that there would not be a lot of bloodshed there - there are friends among Armenians and Azerbaijanis, and I just happened to communicate with very worthy representatives of these peoples. Alas, the conflict will not go away by itself ...

    It became interesting how Karabakh attracts all kinds of Erdogans. It turned out to be a very attractive area ...

    According to the expedition conducted by Azerbaijan during the Soviet years, the following reserves of metal ores are available in the Shahumyan and Kashatagh regions of Karabakh: gold - 1250 tons, silver - 4550 tons, copper - 1840 thousand tons, lead - 660 thousand tons, zinc - 775 thousand tons, cobalt - 150 thousand tons, chromium - 2250 thousand tons. There are also significant reserves of aluminum raw materials (up to 120 million tons) and iron ores with an iron content of up to 45 - 55%. [2]

    This means that the United States will also get in there, as well as in Kosovo.
