Armenia officially asked Russia for help in the war with Azerbaijan

On October 30, 2020, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan sent an official letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin asking for assistance to his country in the war with Azerbaijan. The Armenian Foreign Ministry informed the public about this.

The communiqué of the Armenian Foreign Ministry says that since the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh have approached the immediate borders of Armenia and we are already talking about encroachment on its territory, Yerevan asks Moscow to immediately start negotiations to work out "the form and degree of support for ensuring security." In the letter, the head of the Armenian government described the situation in the region. He noted the transfer of foreign mercenaries to Nagorno-Karabakh and reminded the Russian leadership of Article 2 of the Agreement on Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance of August 29, 1997.

We remind you that the deputy head of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs Konstantin Zatulin has made several statements recently, having shown activity in issues related to the situation around the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. On October 23, he announced on the air Sputnik Armenia, commenting on the threat of Ankara to send its troops to Nagorno-Karabakh, that an increase in the military presence of Russia in Armenia would be a response to the belligerent gestures of Turkey.

In his opinion, if Yerevan is sure that the moment has come to turn to Moscow for military assistance, then such a decision should be made. In addition, the deputy explained that the experience of "our operations" in Syria and a number of other countries indicates the existence of a real threat of the spread of terrorism.

Then you need to be tough. There is a serious problem in the region related to the blockade not even of Karabakh, but of the Republic of Armenia. And along with it, our military base in Gyumri, which should receive supplies

- he added.

Before that, Zatulin говорилthat if Armenia officially turns to the CSTO for help, then Russia can make a "demonstrative strengthening" of the military potential on its territory. At the same time, Moscow will have to "clearly explain" to Tbilisi that it should not interfere with the Russian military aviation in the airspace of Georgia.

Note that Zatulin's statements were made after Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay in an interview with CNN Turk сказалthat Ankara will send its army to the region if Baku officially requests help.

    And how this aid should look like, Aliyev has not yet touched the territory of Armenia, and even Yerevan has not recognized NKR as independent. The weed shed is getting dark again.

      This is the case when "allies" are worse than enemies! Armenia is waging a war on the territory of Azerbaijan and asks for help in the absence of a threat to its territory! I'm shocked by the Armenians! More and more my sympathies are on the side of Azerbaijanis! They fight well, regardless of losses and do not howl or groan! It commands respect, especially since they liberate OWN territories!

    Official response of the Russian Foreign Ministry

    In accordance with the Treaty, Russia will provide Yerevan with all the necessary assistance, if the clashes will be transferred directly to the territory of Armenia.

    Soros-PashenYan is trying to denigrate Russia by allegedly not wanting to defend an ally, deliberately distorting the meaning of the treaty. Any method is good if it involves Russia in the war.

      Yesterday, a letter from Pashinyan to NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg appeared on the Internet. Dated May 13, 2020. It refers to the measures taken to withdraw Armenia from the CSTO and to move under the wing of NATO.
      I don't know if it's fake or not. So far, I have not seen a refutation.

        Today's actions of the little weed confirm that it is not a fake. How to get out of the CSTO? - only by showing that Russia does not protect and the union is not reliable. At the same time, pull apart and destroy the union, urging others to follow his example.

    Azerbaijan will never be the first to start hostilities on the territory of Armenia, because Aliyev knows very well what consequences this will lead to, because Armenia is a member of the CSTO, although two years ago it tried to destroy this organization, and at the same time, Pashinyan, on In the wake of the election campaign of the Prime Minister of Armenia, he then demanded that Russia remove our base from Gyumri, while the Yerevan Maidan chanted at that time that the Russian invaders should get out of Armenia, and now that Putin has forgotten about it? Azerbaijan liberated its lands around the borders of Karabakh, which the Armenians occupied back in 1994, and now it claims its own lands of Karabakh, which legally belong to it, and our guys have nothing to die there for the Russophobe Pashinyan, whose head is not all right ...

      What if Russia creates a base in Karabakh? To guarantee the safety of the Armenians who remained in Nagorno-Karabakh. I think I. Aliyev will agree to this. It will not be a small base in Gyumri, which is difficult to supply, but a full-fledged base on the territory of Azerbaijan. In the very center of the South Caucasus. From where you can easily control a huge chunk of the Middle East.
      True, Azerbaijan basically does not want to have any foreign bases on its territory. They brought out the radar station in Gabala. But here the situation is a little different. Determination of the status of Nagorno-Karabakh as an administrative unit of Azerbaijan and Russian peacekeepers as guarantors of the security of the Armenian population.
      I think this can be discussed during negotiations between Moscow and Baku.

        Aliyev has already said in his interview that he is not against the Russian peacekeepers in N. Karabakh, and the bloodshed will stop, but Pashinyan has already "bit the bit", and how he will look at leaving five settlements within the borders of Karabakh to Azerbaijan, although he already has There is nowhere to go, but he will continue to blackmail Russia by all means available to him, as we have seen for almost three years of his rule in Armenia.

          Yes, he did. On certain conditions. Most of these conditions were fulfilled by the Azerbaijani army. It seems to me that it will be much easier for Aliev and Putin to come to an agreement than for Putin and Pashinyan.

              Yes, I already gave a link to the Russian Foreign Ministry at the very beginning. The provocation is already being prepared. Phosphorus ammunition was brought to Khojavend. And shelling of Azerbaijan continues from the territory of Armenia. Azerbaijan is forced to destroy art batteries and MLRS on the territory of Armenia. But the Azerbaijani troops do not cross the border itself.

                The President of Azerbaijan gave instructions to prepare a plan for the restoration of the liberated territories. A mobile network is already being created in the liberated territories. We have already started creating power grids and rebuilding roads. There will be funds for restoration. This is not the problem.

          Well, as if because it is better to defend your borders away from the borders themselves. The President of the Russian Federation said that in Syria he protects Russia from terrorists. And in the South Caucasus, a NATO base is being drawn in the future. It seems to me that this is worse than the barmaley.
          Well, then. If the base is in Karabakh (and demilitarization is planned there beforehand) then there is no risk as such.
          But this is already Russia's business. There will be Russian peacekeepers - good. It won't - so be it ...

        It seems to me that such a step will be negatively perceived in Ankara, and Turkey is a close and loyal ally of Azerbaijan.

          The most important thing is that this step is received positively in Baku. I. Aliyev agreed in principle to the deployment of Russian peacekeepers in Karabakh.
