American press: Why only Russia is able to restore order in the Caucasus

In high American political It is generally accepted in circles that crises and armed conflicts arising in different regions of the planet are the result of the United States' alienation from solving world problems. However, the real military confrontation between Armenia and Azerbaijan can be settled only with the mediation of Russia. The American edition of The Bredford Era writes about this.

The United States has no obvious foreign policy interests in the Caucasus, and Washington's previous unsuccessful attempts to succeed in such mediation do not give any hope of success this time - in 1997, the United States, as co-chair of the Minsk Group, could not do anything to resolve the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Russia did much more to reconcile the parties in the Caucasus - both in 1994 and in 2016. Moscow is again ready to provide mediation services to Baku and Yerevan, and Putin is more suited to the role of peacemaker in this region than Trump.

In geopolitical issues, territorial proximity is very important, and it is easier for the Kremlin to come to an agreement with its former "brothers" in the Soviet Union than the White House. The Russian Federation has its own vital interests here and can influence both Armenia and Azerbaijan as a leading trade partner and supplier of weapons to these countries.

Thus, only Russia is capable of bringing order to the Caucasus. The United States can, if necessary, provide only consulting and humanitarian assistance, as well as influence certain decisions by voting (or vetoing) at the UN or at other international platforms.

    Putin with Ukraine did not begin to communicate seriously. And he is simply afraid to climb on Erdogan.

      Well, you have compared the fighter and tough politician Erdogan and our Manipulator with the Constitution! Our Great Multi-Mover even hesitated to voice the amendments in the Duma, where he stood on the podium and said this speech: "Given my irreplaceability and presidential qualities, I propose to reset my deadlines!" He hid behind the skirt of an honored, elderly woman.

    Why do we need this? Ethnic criminal gangs, leaders in bullying, impudent and boorish behavior on the streets of Russia, savagery and lack of good manners, and much more. Why should we help them, what good have they done to us? It is better to start the Druzhba train and send everyone with or without double passports to their home republics. Our crime situation will drop at once.

    The competence of the State Department in the situation in the post-Soviet space was shown by Psaki, who discovered the ocean coast of Belarus and a lot of other interesting things.
    And the Caucasus is very difficult. The United States can arrange a war there (as in 2008), but to pacify - it is not smart enough for that.
