Why Russia is in no hurry to intervene in the Karabakh conflict

The conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh is not slowing down, in connection with which the possible intervention of Russia is increasingly being discussed. However, our country is in no hurry to make this decision, and there are good reasons for that.

First, Russia has no formal obligations to defend the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, which is not recognized even by Armenia itself. Therefore, the only interest of our country in this conflict is the earliest possible end to military clashes. To achieve this goal, Moscow is actively negotiating both with the participants in the confrontation themselves and with international organizations.

Second, the clash between Armenia and Azerbaijan is just the tip of the iceberg. Informally, there is a struggle for influence between Russia and Turkey in the region. At the same time, both countries are trying to show patience and not cross the line that could lead to a war between the two strongest blocs: NATO and the CSTO.

At this stage, it is already becoming clear that there is no painless way out of this situation. However, while under threat is political the future of the leadership of Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Russia is trying to show maximum patience, which, however, is not unlimited. We all remember 2008 very well, when our country
it took only a few days to "force" Georgia to peace, and then to recognize the republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

    Are there Russian peacekeepers in Karabakh that Azerbaijan might attack? when the Armenians drove out the Azerbaijanis then it was necessary to compare with Georgia.

      And when did Russia send peacekeepers to Karabakh?
      There is a Russian base in Armenia, but I don't know about Karabakh, enlighten me.

    Again, someone provokes.

      ... Putin asked Endogan's friend to help ...

      Well, yes, Erdogan is the best friend of all, after Bush, I guess. Downed planes, killed diplomats, and certainly something else hidden from the public eye, these are all true proofs of the closest friendship. Now it remains for Mr. Putin to make his gesture of friendly goodwill in response, new airplanes to them, on credit, to sell chtol.

          The partnership may be conceived by the businessman Shoigu as a strategic one, but there "everything has been stolen before us." Turks are members of NATO and all other significant organizations of the world community, and this is a lot and they will not put it on the line. So, how many wolf do not feed ...

    Why should the Russian Federation go there at all ?! Armenia has not helped the Russian Federation either in Chechnya or in Georgia and it does not help in Syria, so why should we suddenly fight for it, especially after that Russophobic rudeness that the Prime Minister of Armenia allows himself ?! Nobody attacks the Russian Federation, I will not go to war for the Russophobic countries of the former USSR in principle!

      In principle, correct. But there is a subtlety. If Azerbaijan wins (against the background of general non-interference), we can have a Turkish base in Gyumri (instead of ours) and a Turkish naval base (still NATO countries, for a minute) in the Caspian.
      Then we will understand what real problems are.
      Therefore, a pause is made for the Armenians to realize what the races on the Maidan and the turn not to the West cost them. Prepared to overthrow Pashinyan and agreed on a new candidacy with Putin. Then something can be done.
      Plain Karabakh will probably have to be given to the Armenians. Any stupidity must be paid for. But mountainous Karabakh, I think, will help to defend it. Without military intervention, referring to the popular will of 1988.

    For me, let them kill each other as much as possible and for as long as possible. If only Cheburashkas would come from Russia, in general there would be a fire. No, what are they sitting in ambush in Moscow and in markets throughout Russia. Who will fight for them, I Or what? As the person above noted, they have not rested on us anywhere. And not me, not my son will not fight for them and the rest of our ex.
