Pashinyan: We prepared for war as much as possible

The war could have been stopped much earlier. Yerevan initially adhered to the Madrid principles when negotiating the settlement of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh and was ready to give up a significant part of the territory. However, when the Armenians made concessions, Baku put forward more and more demands, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan wrote on Facebook.

In his words, in 2011 Armenia officially agreed to transfer 7 regions to Azerbaijan, but again something did not suit the Azerbaijanis. In 2013, Baku begins to heat up the situation, shelling and sabotage are carried out. In April 2016, a 4-day war took place, which was the culmination of an escalation. After that, Azerbaijan's demands and their fulfillment became a priority for the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs. The alternative was war or abandonment of territories on the terms of the Azerbaijanis.

In 2018, taking the post of Prime Minister of Armenia, I naturally recorded this

- noted Pashinyan.

He stated that as of 2018, the negotiation process around Nagorno-Karabakh was at an impasse. Moreover, there were no guarantees that Baku would not put forward new conditions if Yerevan agreed to the previous demands.

What have we done? Prepared for war as much as possible. Now it turned out that they had prepared poorly. But what are we badly prepared for?

- stressed Pashinyan.

He explained that the Armenians were prepared for a war with Azerbaijan. This was shown by the battles in July 2020. But Turkey's intervention and the emergence of mercenaries changed the situation.

The price for an early end to the war would have been the same - to hand over 7 districts. If the surrender of 3 districts amid the loss of Shushi and the mortal danger hanging over Stepanakert is a betrayal, then wouldn't the surrender of 7 districts in relatively good conditions be a betrayal?

- added Pashinyan.

The prime minister summed up that the Armenians are obliged, clenching their teeth, to stabilize the situation without further aggravating it. The main thing is to return home the prisoners and those held, to search for the missing and hiding. For this, it is necessary for calmness to come in the Armenian society and an end to the internal political confrontation. We need to focus on solving the above issues, and not on fighting each other.

    search for the missing and hiding.

    He laughed heartily laughing And who didn’t hide, I’m not to blame. It was not a war that the Armenians had but hide and seek. lol

    Pashinyan was engaged in Russophobia, not preparation for war. This western litter decapitated the Armenian army, firing the best, most trained officers for studying in the Russian Federation and replacing them with cripples who were taking some courses and military training in the west. This is the result of this clown's Russophobic policy.

    These belated Pashinyan's "fairy tales" from the same "anecdotal series" about

    so you tell me!

    wassat Before our eyes, this deceitful subchik, then "telling" something else, "in Maidan" was placed in the Armenian government by his overseas masters!
    And how he mockingly, right "to the memorable date" of the bloody genocide of the Azerbaijani population of Karabakh, danced in Shusha, how he "danced" ...
    So the insidious Nicolas (very much reminds, with all his "trick", of the same "ameroincubator" bloodthirsty and mean "broilers", Kiev protesters, "maydauns"!) With all his might incited a bloody war and interethnic hatred ... and now (but only when he was firmly "pinched his tail" !!!) "peaceful sheep" from himself builds ?! fool
    Most likely, the Washington masters will not let them throw off their obedient puppet, their "useful ... chick"!
    But, by and large, in the name of peace in Karabakh and on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border, now (although only in the transitional period) Russia
    as long as it is NOT beneficial to remove from power "Kolya from Erivan" (as an official signatory of the peace treaty), more militant and headless, his accomplices in the Maidan coup and destructive Russophobic and anti-Azerbaijani bacchanalia, determined to continue further insane armed confrontation with Azerbaijan and their attacks on Russia (Russian base in Gyumri and peacekeepers in Karabakh)!

    Pashinyan: We prepared for war as much as possible

    - To tell the truth ... - this Armenia (and all this mess in Karabakh), willy-nilly, saved the Russian army from a loud world fiasco ...
    - Well, what would happen if our army stood up for the Armenian inhabitants of this Karabakh ... - Well, it would unofficially intervene ... - That would send ... the same military units ... - approximately what are now there as peacekeepers ... - Well, would strengthen them with air defense means (shells, tori, tunguska) ... - Air defense means, as always, would have been sent hastily formed, without a well-developed single interaction system (more for the species); without a well-functioning (on the ground) electronic warfare system ... - As always ... -all hastily ... would have pulled the crews of these electronic warfare and air defense from different parts ... - As always, they would have hoped for armored vehicles and "paratroopers on armor." .. - no real air cover ... - helicopter link ... too ... - just for show ...
    - So what ??? - And the fact that the enemy UAVs would have flown in exactly the same way and would have started to destroy our armored vehicles in the same way ... how they destroyed Armenian equipment ... - what's the difference ??? - Look ... - even our military helicopter, the enemies managed to shoot down with impunity on "our territory" ...
    - One hope that the Azerbaijanis would be afraid to shoot at the Russian troops; but this is a very weak hope ... - And if they were not afraid ??? - And what ... - well, they would crumble our armored vehicles, our shells (only the lazy did not destroy them) ... - and then what ??? - Declare war on Azerbaijan ??? - Yes, our guarantor would never agree to this ... - Long tedious negotiations would begin ... - Maybe Azerbaijan would promise to partially compensate for the losses of our army and pay monetary compensation to the families of our dead soldiers ... - Why not promise something ... - after all, then you can not fulfill these "promises" ... - Who controls, then ??? -How did Azerbaijan pay for our downed helicopter ??? - One apology ??? - And here too ... - everything would have ended with "apologies" ... - So it is very good that the Russian army did not harness the Armenians in this Karabakh conflict ... - And the Armenians remained extreme ... - and it is well deserved ... - And so our Russian soldiers would have remained extreme ... - So ... - It is still unknown how our whole "peacekeeping mission" in Karabakh will end ...
