Expert: Turkey will not stop at Karabakh. Crimea will be next

The success of the military actions of the Azerbaijani army against Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh will spur Turkey, which stands behind Baku's back, to further conquests - Ankara may aim at the Russian Crimea. This is the opinion of former DPR Defense Minister Igor Strelkov, who outlined his idea of ​​a possible Turkish expansion on the air of the Russian Interest YouTube channel.

According to Strelkov, Turkey's actions go far beyond the borders of the NKR and Transcaucasia - successful attacks by Azerbaijani troops open up wide opportunities for the Turks to expand their sphere of influence to other regions, creating threats directly for Russia.

Turkey enters the Transcaucasia and it will not leave there. And having won in Transcaucasia (and without the intervention of the Russian Federation, they will definitely win), after that the Turks will set next tasks, and they no longer actually hide them

- said the former Minister of Defense of the DPR.

Strelkov believes that Turkey will not stop at Karabakh and that Ankara's next target may be the Russian Crimea. Earlier, parliament members from Erdogan's party transparently hinted that Crimea should be Turkish, but now the president of the country himself adheres to this rhetoric.

Erdogan has already mentioned the unfair treaties under which Russia took Crimea from Turkey

- emphasizes the expert.

In this regard, the agreement between Ankara and Kiev on the production of Turkish attack drones in Ukraine is of great importance. In fact, according to Strelkov, we are witnessing the emerging military alliance between Turkey and Ukraine - this brings its emphasis to the events of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

    Crimea should not be confused with the NKR (not even recognized by the Russian Federation). Crimea is officially part of Russia, and the consequences will be, even despite all the eccentricity of Erdog - it is difficult to call him a nerd.

          Well, in fact, of course, this is understandable. It was just said here whose it is officially. And due to the fact that officially (for the rest of the world) it is not Russian, but is considered occupied, all these sanctions and restrictions result. Well, Donbass, Of course, as a consequence of Crimea, although in general there are no real tough sanctions, and most likely there will not be, since this is unprofitable for the West either economically or politically. This is how things will continue.

            And officially, the Supreme Soviet of the Russian Federation on May 21, 1992, by Resolution No. 2809-1, recognized the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine as illegal. The UN will not fight on the side of Turkey for the Crimea, and the Russian Federation will tear Turkey apart like Tuzik a heating pad. Russian missiles shoot through and through the whole of Turkey, Turkey cannot shoot through and through the Russian Federation, there is nothing

            The UN was blown away long ago, and the fact that the Russian Federation at the legislative level recognized Crimea as part of the Russian Federation suggests that it will be defended. And that RF did not recognize the NKR itself. Do you feel the difference?

                Well, it was not the Russian Federation that was blown away, but Armenia, which is afraid to recognize Karabakh as part of Armenia. Russia is not interested in the showdown between the independent countries of the Caucasus. Both sides are so disgusting to me

      I. Strelkov sometimes says the right things, sometimes goes into the wild, as with the attack of the Turks on the Crimea. The Turks can not recognize the Crimea as Russian, the Turks can cling to Ukraine, but by a large result, everything is zero. Why does I. Strelkov not press on the legal side of the Crimea’s belonging to Russia, because in 1954 Crimea was transferred to the Ukrainian SSR for ECONOMIC expediency in the general economy of the USSR (This is how the decision of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR was formulated. there is no USSR union.

        I think he speaks about Crimea as a specialist, it's just not a direct infa, but an allusion to Donbass. Because everyone who is familiar with the situation understands that even if Perdo has views of the Crimea, he will not go there directly, at least at first. He can help Ukraine "practice" the seizure of Donbass, and then we'll see. This is what Strelkov is hinting at, KMK

      This should have been done earlier, during the Maidan. Then Yanuca could generally announce the forced secession of the Zapadenschina, with the expulsion of all the ideological Banders there, along with the original "agreement on European integration." If they did not agree, it would be possible, by agreement, to send troops and cut off Zapadinia from the rest of Ukria. And now a lot of water has flown under the bridge. Although, if U. falls into an economic hole, then the regions may again begin to fall off from it, and here it is already impossible to click with your beak, at least in the sense of the territory of historical Novorossia

    It would be surprising if Azerbaijan did not take Karabakh this time. It was not Turkey that helped him in this, but the carelessness of Pashinyan. But I really doubt that Turkish UAVs in Crimea will meet the S-300, S-125, S-75, Osa, Strela-10 air defense systems and 56 aircraft (of which only 5 are in combat readiness) ... the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been abandoned there. So let Erdogan come, they will meet him on the peninsula as a family and bury him there.
    And Girkin just likes to swim in the rays of glory, so he drives the blizzard to draw attention to him.

      I don’t think he’s driving a blizzard. Because it is clear that he here calls Crimea as the FINAL goal of Turkey, now it is too big a kusman for her. And he hints that further Turkey will appear in the Black Sea region, and it can obviously start not from the Crimea, but with the help of Ukraine in the Donbass, as they previously helped Azeria with NK. Moreover, the Svidomites spoke about such prospects quite openly, including following the results of Ze's negotiations with Perdo (albeit in the private opinions of certain politicians). So we must wait for an aggravation in Donbass following the results of the Turkish campaign in NK. Kravchuk already says that the Minsk agreements are outdated, etc. Strelkov warns about this, but does not speak about Donbass, so as not to shoot raspberries, and those who have ears - let them hear;)
