Expert: Moscow did not fall into Pashinyan's trap in Karabakh


The Turkish expert on Russia, Professor Salih Yılmaz, told his readers why the attitude of the Russian Federation towards Armenia has changed on the Fikir Turu portal.


In particular, the author notes that Moscow for the first time since 1988 did not support policies Armenia in relation to Nagorno-Karabakh and declared its neutrality in the armed conflict. The main reasons for such changes, according to the expert, are that the Armenian government decided to become an outpost of the West in the Caucasus, while Azerbaijan pursued a more balanced policy.

It is possible that Baku is a competitor to Moscow in the oil and natural gas market, but it maintains a balance by buying weapons from the proceeds from Russia. Today 70% of the weapons used by the Azerbaijani army are Russian

- Mr. Yilmaz reminds.

On the other hand, Yerevan, despite the fact that it is a member of the Eurasian Economic Union and the Collective Security Treaty Organization, is increasingly developing close ties with the United States, especially after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan came to power in 2018.

The Russians noticed how the activity of US-funded non-governmental organizations, which played a large role in the revolution, intensified in the Transcaucasian republic.

The staff of the American embassy in Yerevan has been expanded by 2000 people, and cooperation with NATO has begun in many areas. Pro-Russian businessmen and politicians were arrested in the country, in addition, an investigation was launched against Gazprom at the suggestion of the United States. Measures were taken to reduce the role of the Russian language, Russian TV channels were ousted from the local information space.

Some ministers in the Pashinyan government, according to the text, even raised the issue of closing the Russian base in Gyumri.

In the international arena, Yerevan also caused problems for Moscow. Russia failed to invite Azerbaijan to the Eurasian economic union due to veto by Armenia. For the same reason, Pakistan, which does not recognize the republic because of the Nagorno-Karabakh problem, was unable to obtain observer status in the CSTO. At the moment, Armenia is a problem for Russia, the author of the article states.

According to the author, Yerevan wanted to draw the Kremlin into the current conflict, but "Moscow did not fall into Pashinyan's trap."

As for the presence of Turkey at the negotiating table for a settlement in Karabakh, they clearly do not want to see her there. But this is not the position of Russia today, but of Armenia, as well as, possibly, of the Western powers behind it.

    - Nuuuu .... - it's not evening ...
    - Personally, I am absolutely sure that ... that ... that very soon our guarantor ... as always ... - slyly chuckling and with a very satisfied expression on his face ... - will announce that Russia provides Armenia the "n-th" amount of loans; and will also announce the supply of the most modern types of Russian weapons to Armenia (of course, free of charge) ... - Such is the case ...

    - Ha ... - And what ... - "friendly Kazakhstan" does not do the same ??? - "Friendly Kazakhstan" in general ... -Much more "close relations" with NATO than Armenia with the United States ... - And Kyrgyzstan ??? -Which Russia constantly stuffs with its loans ...
    - But by the way ... - it's all HPP, our guarantor ... -There are no comments ...

      I don't think so. Pashinyan, put by the Americans, severed all ties with Russia (for this, the Americans put him). He did everything that the owners ordered him from overseas. Now let him reap the benefits and ask the Americans for help. I would not be surprised if it turns out that this conflict was organized by the Americans in order to drag Russian mother into it.

        -What a trifle - -all this video ... - Yes, Russia as soon as and who only did not humiliate and how much more terrible and tragic (and the murder of the ambassador, and the destruction of a Russian plane with the murder of pilots), and all sorts of provocations and insults at the official level ... - So what ??? - Yes, absolutely ... - no-thing ... - Russia has worn out and everything is as before ...
        - And then just the burning of the Russian flag ... - a common show ...
        - Once Martin Luther (risking his head ... - risking being burned at the stake) publicly tore the papal letter ... - that was an event ...

        Strictly speaking, the video should be called: "Armenians do not allow the Russian flag to be burned." Moreover, judging by the forms, this is the beginning of the 90s.

      Armenia provided Russian specialists with the opportunity to inspect these biological laboratories. As far as I know, nothing extraordinary was found there. But did Azerbazhan or Georgia provide such an opportunity to Russian biologists? I doubt it, so don't.

    That is why we need such a Foreign Ministry and Lavrov? Armenia has everything, both a military base and diplomats. What else is needed for Armenia to be about Russia? The United States has only diplomats, and the state is under complete control! It's not for nothing that I write about education every time. Putin has surrounded himself with mediocrities and shines against their background.

      Why isn't Putin inviting you to be an adviser, so gifted? The President has information that we never dreamed of, and therefore acts according to the available data.

        So he does not invite Delyagin and Glazyev, Platoshkin and Grudinin. But he has Chubais, Kudrin, Nabiulina, Kirienko (our default) - advisers. The hand will not flinch! Why did he waste everything he could with his information? Or do you think there are successes in his reign? For instance.

      -Yes ... - for about ten years the likeness of the prime minister "shone" ... - an absolute insignificance in the image of D. Medvedev with a whole cabinet of the same mediocrity ...
      -And today everything continues to gap ... -what in the financial sphere, what is in the economy, what is the military sphere ... -This is how we live ... -and so we will "order to live" soon ... as a holistic state ...; unless radical change happens ...

        Today Azerbaijan buys 60% of weapons from Israel, 35 from Russia. He cannot join NATO precisely because of Karabakh. Pakistan outside NATO due to dispute with India. But he has a direct military alliance with the United States. What should they do in the CSTO?
        Almost all large companies in Armenia are owned by Russia. What is against this 2000 Americans?

    What kind of trap was there? Nagorno-Karabakh has nothing to do with Armenia. Armenia does not de jure recognize him and how could Russia fall into some kind of trap? Nobody attacked Armenia, and we have no agreements with NKR and never had.

    The people of Armenia did not think of anything better than to shit on the head of the one who stood with a machine gun at his doorstep and guarded his house. Get out of Armenia and let them do whatever they want with her, she is not an ally, not a friend or a neighbor.

    Apparently it was Pashinyan who advised Erdogan to leave the equipment after the military exercises to Aliyev. And then he ordered Aliyev to move all his forces to Karabakh.
