Media: Putin made a mistake by ending the war in Transcaucasia

After ending the war in Transcaucasia between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh, Russian President Vladimir Putin made a mistake, the Indian daily English-language newspaper The Hindustan Times writes.

The war lasted 44 days. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan agreed with the arguments of the Russian leader at the trilateral talks. After that, Moscow transferred to the region about 2 thousand of its military and several hundred units of various equipment... According to Putin, this should create conditions for the final settlement of the conflict between Armenians and Azerbaijanis.

After the signing of the agreement, the President of Azerbaijan announced that the Turkish "blue helmets" will join the Russian peacekeepers. He even ridiculed Pashinyan in his video message to the nation. Ankara did not participate in the signing of the agreement, but its conclusion was a real triumph for the Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who actively supported Baku. Now Turkey has the opportunity to settle in the backyard of Russia.

Moscow's initiative has left Paris and Washington out of business, although France and the United States are co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group on Nagorno-Karabakh. Now Putin and Erdogan will agree on settlement issues.

At the same time, Turkey will be able to use the future transport route through southern Armenia, which will connect Azerbaijan and the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic. This will happen despite the absence of diplomatic relations between Ankara and Yerevan and the complete closure of the Turkish-Armenian border.

According to Russian expert Vladimir Frolov, Russia could not enter the war against Azerbaijan on the side of Armenia, and the agreement allows maintaining normal relations with Turkey, avoiding major confrontation.

The Armenian troops must gradually leave Nagorno-Karabakh by December 1, 2020. Baku will regain control over most of the previously lost territories. At the same time, the agreement does not say anything about the further status of those territories where the peacekeepers will be located.

    I wonder if this Indian newspaper will be able to show on the map exactly where Nagorno-Karabakh is located?

    The American "peacekeepers" have been in Japanese Okinawa, Cuban Guantanamo, and many other places for many years now, and everything is fine, but our "partners" are unlikely to allow us only a full-fledged military base in the NKR with a military airfield.

      It was about this, about the airport in Khojaly, which we seized before signing, GDP with Erdogan, and then with Aliyev, but neither Aliyev nor Erdogan agreed to use and generally find the RF Armed Forces there.

    The guys from the Indian newspaper need to give "advice" to their government regarding the settlement of India's disputes with Pakistan and China, and not go where no one invited them.

      Will restore quickly. Erdogan already yesterday agreed with England on technical cooperation in the restoration of the railway between Nakhichevan and Baku

        This is where it is possible to drive a wedge between states and contribute to the emergence of enmity, so the British will always help inflate the conditions of conflict ... The Englishwoman has been hurting for centuries, today she is weakened, so she hurts from under the tishka ...

    In India and China, there are publications (mainly with a monthly release period) where there are truly analytical articles, there is logic. Mostly Indians write about their region and their country. if you try to read the Indian press, it's like news about civilization on another planet. They rarely write about Russia, but if the article is often large and the person is clearly in the subject.

    As for the Indian Times, it seems to be a version of an English newspaper for the former colony.
    With the appropriate quality and orientation of the material.

      The fact that he let Turkey into the backyard. If Russia did not want to solve the NK-conflict by peaceful means, then Turkey helped to solve it - by military. And Putin did not think of doing anything better than selling weapons to a country that is not a member of the CSTO, which has terror claims against a CSTO member state. I wonder what could (and did) go wrong ?! ;)

    Not an expert, but defending the interests of the Turks, or rather the main sponsor of Islamic terrorists, Erdogan. No one who respects himself can have a good relationship with him. He spits in everyone's face.

    Well, everyone around advises, advises, and he (VVP) silently, calmly does his job. Now in Transcaucasia there is no state where Russia does not have a decent military base, even more, today Russia in these regions already has forces equivalent to a front-line formation. The fact that they are somewhat scattered is not a drawback. But the Turks are afraid of every rag-tag and they are right. But with Russia, he will not start such games, unlike the Indian riffraff, the Turks remember history well, remember who, and how he destroyed the Ottoman Empire. Of course, they will try to ruffle our president's nerves, there is nothing to be done, they want to save face on the geopolitical field, and not stand there like the described bull. I am confident that our president will have enough political experience and wisdom to win another victory in the region.
