The course of the Turkish military provocation in Nagorno-Karabakh is described in detail

The escalation of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh was deliberately provoked by Ankara. In the summer of 2020, Turkey actively influenced Azerbaijan to increase tensions in the region, and in the fall, Ankara pushed Baku to launch a "counteroffensive" operation.

Turks promised Azerbaijanis political, informational, diplomatic, military and intelligence support. The edition writes about it Kommersant, referring to his sources in the military and diplomatic circles, who described in detail the course of the Turkish provocation in the region.

Sources told the publication that after the end of the Turkish-Azerbaijani military exercises, which took place in July-August in Azerbaijan, a significant contingent of the Turkish Armed Forces remained on the territory of this country. Ankara "forgot" 600 of its military personnel (drone operators, instructors and advisers, as well as flight technicians) and a number of different equipment (18 BMPs, 1 MLRS, 10 trucks, 6 aircraft, 8 helicopters and 20 drones). These forces were supposed to help Baku with the "counter-offensive" operation in Nagorno-Karabakh.

In September-October, the number of Turkish BTA flights to Azerbaijan through the Georgian airspace increased sharply. Moreover, on September 28-30, the commander of the ground forces of Turkey Umit Dundar and the Turkish Minister of Defense Hulusi Akar flew to Azerbaijan, who on the spot were in charge of the "counter-offensive" operation in Nagorno-Karabakh.

In addition, the Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MİT), with the support of the Turkish Ministry of Defense, is actively recruiting mercenaries in different countries to participate in hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh on the side of Baku. According to available data, in the first week of October alone, about 1,3 thousand mercenaries from Syria and 150 of their colleagues from Libya were sent to the zone of this conflict.

The private military company SADAT is directly recruiting militants in Syria with the assistance of the leadership of the pro-Turkish Syrian National Army. The main recruiting centers are located in the cities of Afrin, El-Bab, Ras al-Ain and Tel Abyad. The mercenaries are promised a "lifting allowance" in the amount of $ 1,5 thousand and a monthly salary of up to $ 2 thousand, as well as large monetary compensation to relatives in case of death.

Moreover, the first mercenaries from Syria materialized on the territory of Azerbaijan on September 22, i.e. five days before the start of the "counter-offensive" operation. At the same time, the leadership of Azerbaijan, represented by President Ilham Aliyev, stubbornly denies the presence of mercenaries in the country.

    in the person of President Ilham Aliyev, stubbornly denies the presence of mercenaries in the country.

    Or maybe they just didn't tell him? Have the generals decided to earn extra money at their level?

    NATO member Turkey revives the Armenian henchmen of the West, and makes it clear their place in the world, that Russia is in the hands ... If Armenia had not reoriented to the West through a "revolution" organized (up to two thousand) American specialists from the Embassy in Yerevan , so Russia did not allow such an extensive war in Karabakh. Now everyone gets what they deserve ... And if Karabakh returns to Azerbaijan, such an outcome is also favorable, for Armenia, in fact, is already in Russia's enemies.

    You guys from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltic states got it in August 1991, who is the so-called independence, who is "independent" from Russia, which in the days of the USSR was your mother to all of you, and now you blame her, call it an occupier, an invader and the primary enemy, you wanted to be independent, and dreamed of living in your fabulously rich countries, some as hetmans, some as beys, and some as county princes, but only without Russia, but you got what you got - death, blood, grief, destruction, and even at the beginning of your flight from our common country of the USSR, our Russian predictor Vladimir Volfovich clearly said that if all these republics get their hands on weapons, then they will shoot each other ... If we, Russia and its people, are considered occupiers and invaders for you, why are you asking now, when you are deadly hot, our help, you, Mr. Pashinyan, over the two years of your rule by Armenia, poured so much dirt on Russia, demanding to remove from its territory Russiana military base, and tried to create, like Ukraine and Georgia, a museum of the occupation of your country by the USSR, so reap what you yourself have sown.
