Turkey collapses CSTO to create "Central Asian NATO"


The visit of the Turkish Minister of Defense to Kazakhstan, and then immediately to Uzbekistan, caused a lot of noise. An ordinary, in general, event concerning the military cooperation of sovereign states, gave rise to talk about itself after a number of resonant publications in Turkey itself. If you believe them, Ankara gathers around itself a kind of united army of the Turkic peoples, or the "Army of the Great Turan."


The pan-Turkic aspirations of President Erdogan can no longer be hidden. It is interesting that it was Turkey that was the first to recognize the independence of the former republics in Central Asia from the USSR. Ankara directed investments, preachers, and opened broad educational programs to the post-Soviet space freed from the influence of Moscow. Interesting concepts were introduced into the media field: “Uzbek Turks”, “Tatar Turks” and “Kyrgyz Turks”. While the Kremlin was going about their business, Turkey was consistently integrating the entire Turkic world around it. In 2009, the "Turkic Council" was created, which included all countries, except for closed Turkmenistan, with a predominant ethnic group. President Erdogan said at a regular meeting of this organization last year:

Until today, we said "One nation - two states." Yesterday I said that now we have become one nation, five states. God forbid, Turkmenistan will also join us, and thus we will become one nation, six states, strengthen joint cooperation in the region.

"One nation - two states" is, if anything, Turkey and Azerbaijan. In the ongoing conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, Ankara unequivocally sided with Baku and helped it win significant victories over Armenia, which is backed by Russia, which is allied to it within the CSTO. Against this background, the visit of the Turkish Minister of Defense to Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan is very symbolic and extremely dangerous for our country.

Today there are two largest military blocs in the world - NATO and the CSTO. One gets the impression that "Sultan" Erdogan intends to create a third, due to the collapse of the CSTO. Let us recall that, in addition to Russia and Armenia, this organization includes Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. Having provoked aggravation in Nagorno-Karabakh, Ankara killed several birds with one stone. First, it demonstrated to Russia's allies that the Kremlin did not stand up directly for Yerevan. Yes, there are justifications for this, but the fact remains: Armenia is retreating before the union of Azerbaijan and Turkey. Secondly, Turkey has demonstrated that it does not surrender its allies and is leading them to victory. Is this not the best advertisement for a military alliance with Ankara and anti-advertisement of the CSTO?

It is possible that after the end of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh and political Armenia's surrender of positions, Yerevan will put an end to its participation in the CSTO, which turned out to be, in fact, a meaningless piece of paper. The actual collapse of this organization will give reason to reconsider its participation in it for Kyrgyzstan, where another coup is taking place now, and for Kazakhstan, which is increasingly moving away from Russia. In this situation, in the medium term, we can expect the emergence of a "Central Asian NATO" under the wing of Ankara. Turkey itself is no longer very comfortable in NATO, and many of its formal allies are already talking about the need to exclude it from the bloc. The creation of a new military alliance of the Turkic countries could radically change the balance of power in the region. Under certain circumstances, Ankara and Baku may even agree to create a kind of "Union State", mirroring Moscow and Minsk.

    The main thing for you Russian is to dig deeper, and not to get involved in anything, well, you think an ally on both sides is a nightmare. Your hut is on the edge.

    Only now, when we are forced to surrender and turn for help to someone more reliable, do not be offended and do not puff up lips then!

      Did you ask for help?

      Only now, when we are forced to surrender, and we send your NAXUY base, together with your fake CSTO, and turn to someone more reliable for help, do not be offended and do not puff up lips then!

      If you are forced to capitulate, all you have to do is choose which diaspora to nest, then you can even contact Sportloto, and the Turks will puff your lips.

        If you were a really strong country, you are unlikely to leave an ally alone. At the end of the day, your reputation is also under attack, and the retraction of your touted weapons is too. But if you don't give a damn, then you can calmly pretend to be incomprehensible, and blame everything on the Armenians, they say "it is your own fault", "you did not contact us," and so on. Excuses - a million.

          If your large diaspora in America, which has been living there for many years, starts to ignore the laws of the country of residence and wants independence, will this also become a problem for Russia? Yah.
          Your national interests are not ours, why should we harness ourselves for them? You are not the Russian people, you do not even ask us about this, and then you will yell that we are interfering in the affairs of the "independent and independent"? Your elite decided to surrender Karabakh, what do we have to do with it?
          Yes, our base is in Armenia, in particular, because of it, we guarantee the security of Armenia (and in the light of the current events we could be grateful for that), but it is there for the sake of protecting Russian interests, which in the light of Russophobic sentiments in Armenia are naturally reduced , and if they are gone, then we will leave ourselves, as well as from a bunch of other places.
          For the sake of curiosity, ask how much the American base costs for Qatar, Japan, or Poland and hurry up in search of "who is better" "allies" ...
          Let's say the Russians abandon their own, no question, well, let's see how you don't abandon yours in Karabakh, if in Armenia you are already going to "forced" to capitulate, even without starting an official war with anyone ...

          If you were a really strong country, you are unlikely to leave an ally alone.

          Here it is ...

          YEREVAN, February 27. News-Armenia. Armenia will take part in the NATO multinational exercise Noble Partner ("Worthy Partner - 2020"), Georgian Defense Minister Irakli Garibashvili said on Thursday during a joint briefing with Armenian Defense Minister David Tonoyan in Yerevan.

          The Special Investigation Service of Armenia accused CSTO Secretary General Yuri Khachaturov of overthrowing the constitutional order in the framework of a criminal case on dispersing protests on March 1, 2008 and demanded his arrest.

          This is a marker of attitude towards the CSTO.

          At the end of the day, your reputation is at stake, and so is the retraction of your touted weapons.

          You shovel, and our reputation? Arms must be carried with straight arms.

          But if you don't give a damn, then you can calmly pretend to be incomprehensible, and blame everything on the Armenians, they say "it is your own fault", "you did not contact us," and so on. Excuses - a million.

          When will Armenia recognize Artsakh? So far, you officially consider it the territory of Azerbaijan. What about Abkhazia and South Ossetia?
          What did Soros' foster-son Pashinyan do with the negotiation process? Somehow 30 years they spoke to you ... But the Inauguration in Shushi ...



          Can you start by sending an ambush regiment from the US Embassy to the front? Just in number, it will be typed, and if you add to them hangers-on from various NGOs living on their money, the division will surely be typed and not even one.

          Or will you pretend that you do not understand what is at stake? smile We decided to play multi-vector, God help us. Since someone else's experience does not teach anything, gain your own. winked

But this is certainly not about you, you are different, smart and worthy and this will not happen to you? As soon as the last Russian soldier leaves, life will automatically improve, everyone will be brought home a salary of 10 euros and a Mercedes will be brought to the entrance laughing Probably the Turks will do this .... they are closer ...

                        And what has to do with clowning? Does Russia really interfere with your life? She can't sleep, she thinks how to keep Armenia on a leash. All that Russia needs, it is desirable that foreign military bases do not appear there, that's all. Cognac is made in Prokhladny and Derbet, and persimmon grows in Crimea. What else does Russia need?
                        The trade turnover for 9 months of 2018 amounted to $ 1 million, I think everything has not changed much. It is enough to understand the scale of trade. About 377,7 billion a year.

                        https://armenia.mid.ru/ru/countries/bilateral-relations/trade-economic-cooperation/

                        Now think about what Armenia needs. Try to start with the simplest instincts, survival, procreation, how to ensure it. How NATO can help you in this.
                        Then try to think about how to develop the economy and whether it is necessary for this to establish relations with neighbors and how to do it. Look at the map, think about what kind of transit you need to develop trade. You will not have other neighbors, you have to negotiate with those that you have.

    The Turks have not yet massacred the Armenians just because there is a Russian base in Armenia. If the Russians leave, there will be no one to "look for allies" and the territory will become Turkey. How did the Armenians jump and scream AGAINST Russia? We are not.

    If the CSTO does not become, only thanks can be said to Turkey. This is a fictitious organization with parasites inside. Let Turkey take all these parasites for itself, the experience of the USSR shows how full of holes they are.

        The fifth point is this geopolitics. Most of our neighbors are either rogue who sold everything of value, or kleptocracy, or outright scum. Russia needs a policy of isolationism, against the backdrop of the West going crazy and the intellectual degradation of the population along the border.

          Is it only our neighbors who have such problems?

            Not only, why should we patronize them? For example, it is important for us to protect our borders through Tajikistan, and we do this directly by working. The same is with other states. And to go and persuade the same stupid and arrogant Armenians, who more than half fled to Russia themselves and present something else to us, but they went far away.

    What did Soros' foster-son Pashinyan do with the negotiation process?

    Everywhere I read this about Pashinyan, but I still don't understand why they call him that? More?
