Turkish expert: Ankara unexpectedly fell into dependence on Moscow in Karabakh

Having made the decision to introduce peacekeeping forces into the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, Russia is so firmly strengthening its influence in the South Caucasus region that Turkey unexpectedly becomes dependent on Moscow. This opinion was expressed by the head of the Turkish Studies Program at the Institute of Middle East policy Washington Soner Chagaptai.

Chagaptai believes that Putin, who brings peacekeepers into the NKR, "is killing seven with one blow." Such a move by the Russian president further alienates Turkey from the United States, returns Armenia to a regime of complete dependence on Russia, and expands the direct military presence of the Russian Federation in the region. However, it is not known what this may turn out to be for Turkey - it will probably fall into a certain dependence on the Kremlin, which is now capable of influencing relations between Ankara and Baku.

Turkey becomes more dependent and forced to rely more on Russia

- the Turkish expert believes, while complaining about the unfavorable economic position within Turkey. This further complicates Ankara's ability to manage the situation.

The transport arteries in the Karabakh region, which it has now decided to unblock, will be controlled by Russia, which in turn becomes a likely point of Moscow's pressure on Ankara if the situation in Syria does not go according to the Kremlin's scenario.

To strengthen its influence and ensure the balance of power, Russia supports Azerbaijan, but at the same time plays into the hands of Armenia, whose return “to the empire” has already been realized despite the fact that Nikol Pashinyan is the least pro-Russian leader in Yerevan.

    Turkish expert: Ankara unexpectedly fell into dependence on Moscow in Karabakh

    - What kind of addiction ??? - And who got into it ???
    - Russia airlifted the units of the 31st separate airborne assault brigade ... - 1960 servicemen and 470 pieces of equipment ... - It practically turns out a whole division ... - This is all needed in Belarus ... or in Syria. ... - Why is it in Karabakh ???
    - And everything lands in a poor mountainous area ... - But this is not a mountain rifle division ... - It's kind of strange ...
    - And how to supply this army there ??? - Throw everything through the air, or what ??? - Monstrous expenses for Russia ...
    - It is necessary to build barracks for the troops; boxes and military parks for equipment; warehouses and storage facilities for fuels and lubricants ... - building materials, construction equipment are needed ... - And the supply ??? - To deliver by air, or through the territory of Azerbaijan, or what ... -and so ... every time ???
    - It turns out that ... that ... that our military suppliers will buy all this from Azerbaijan: - food, gasoline, diesel fuel, fuel and lubricants, and construction materials ...
    - Azerbaijan will shave off all its stale cereals, flour, canned food, pasta and other unclaimed food products of our army; and even at exorbitant prices ... - And our supply-intendants will then send the bill for all this to our guarantor; and then there ... - our Russian taxpayers ... - Azerbaijan was lucky ...
    - But our soldiers will be hard enough ... - They can easily be fired at from anything, place mines, etc. ... - even Armenians, even Azerbaijanis, even Turkish saboteurs, even mercenaries from Syria ... - And what can you do here ??? - Only - as always ... - "Eternal memory" and "a feeling of deep concern" ... and nothing else ... - Where to our people and who to shoot ??? -All these scoundrels will only deny and provocatively transfer arrows to each other - And is it even possible for our soldiers to shoot at all ??? - As always, only "in case of emergency" ... - And how do our soldiers differ from the same Karabakh Armenian soldiers there in Karabakh ??? - Practically, ours are as vulnerable ... as the Armenians-Karabakhis ... - Well, the enemy saboteur UAVs will hang in the same way; will have all the data on the location and movement of our troops ... - and ... and ... and will also ... - periodically strike at our soldiers ... - What's the difference ???
    - Turkey and Azerbaijan have benefited from all this ... - Russia took upon itself all the colossal monstrous burdens and colossal expenses to establish peace in this non-peaceful and dangerous region ... - this is a thankless task ...

      There is such a book by Yuri Bondarev called Hot Snow. I recommend reading (not reading). There answers to 99% of the answers to your questions.

    Judging by the actions of the Turks and those who grunt about their presence in Karabakh, everything is just beginning, the main thing is that the sun-faced person does not back down, otherwise it will not be a camilfo at all

    Yes, I agree, if there is no common border, there will be problems. If the Azerbaijanis continue to struggle, there will be only the compulsion to peace according to the Georgian version with a walk to Baku. I hope that the supply of troops has been agreed through the territory of Azerbaijan. In general, politics should be built in the American way - to buy or put your presidents (no matter in what way, democracy aside). It would be cheaper that way. And not try to please the people, who will turn their backs anyway
