Canadian press: Putin has mastered military conflict resolution

In the first half of the last century, Transcaucasia became part of the Soviet Union, and three Transcaucasian republics were formed - Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. Nagorno-Karabakh was transferred by Stalin to Azerbaijan on the terms of autonomy, despite the protests of the Armenian population. This smoldering conflict took on new shapes during the years of perestroika and continued once again at the end of 2020.

According to experts from the Canadian analytical resource Global Research, military conflicts in the Caucasus at the beginning of the new millennium are resolved with the direct participation of Russian President Vladimir Putin, in which he has been very successful.

With the collapse of the USSR, the conflicts that had died out were flared up with renewed vigor, which was reflected in Ossetia, Nagorno-Karabakh and Chechnya. Separatist tendencies in both Europe and the Caucasus are supported by the West, which is fanning ethnic tensions between different peoples of this difficult region. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who is trying to sign documents on association with the EU, is also under the influence of Western sponsors, but Armenia's loss in the NKR led to massive discontent with him. policies.

The current war in Karabakh took place with the direct participation of Turkey, whose militants fought for the interests of Baku. Erdogan's help can be seen as a manifestation of his expansionist aspirations and desire to establish control over the South Caucasus, pushing Russia out. Ankara's participation risks turning this regional conflict into a global one, with the intervention of the Russian Federation, the United States, Israel, Iran and other countries.

Given the chill between Turkey and the United States and the pro-Western orientation of a number of politicians in Yerevan, it might seem that the Kremlin benefits from Azerbaijan's victory. However, adherents of this point of view underestimate the historical ties of Armenia with Russia, which defended Orthodox Christians from the Ottoman Muslims. But it is not profitable for Russia to support any one side of the confrontation, and Moscow's only desire is to play a mediating role and eliminate the danger of new wars encouraged from Ankara and Washington. And here the Kremlin has some success.

Vladimir Putin has mastered the negotiation of compromise in national conflicts

- say Canadian experts, noting at the same time the short-term nature of any truce in Karabakh as long as the former regions of the USSR are under the rule of world imperialism.

    After the destruction of the USSR, the Civil War continues on its outskirts. This is a natural process. It has always been that way. On the ruins of the Roman Empire in Western Europe, wars between the remnants of the empire did not subside for a long time. If the people want to avoid war and live peacefully, then it is better for them to build an empire again, entering it with their territory. This applies to Azerbaijan, Armenia, and many other republics.

      Undoubtedly, the creation of a new "Empire" within the borders of the former USSR would be a boon for all, without exception, the peoples living on this territory. The only question is that the current RF cannot serve as a point of attraction for peoples, since it has nothing to attract its neighbors with except a degrading economy and total corruption. Without fundamental political changes in Russia, all dreams of building a new Empire will be utopia. Moreover, if the existing regime in the Russian Federation is preserved, the disintegration of Russia itself is very likely.

        ... the creation of a new "Empire" within the borders of the former USSR would be a blessing for all peoples living on this territory without exception.

        For "all without exception"?
        Yes, yes, except for the Russian, who dragged on his shoulders "sisters" -darm-eaters, the "camp of socialism" and "progressive humanity" in the form of Vietnam, Cuba and other Congo-Mozambics.
        The past 30 years have shown that almost all "sister republics" have returned to their primitive state. So you can do without a new empire and live on the transfers of your guest workers.

          Are you in favor of Russia, consisting exclusively of purely Russian regions? Can you mark it on the map? At least approximately ...

            ... within the borders of the former USSR ..

            ... you are for Russia ...

            At first it was about the USSR. Then you jumped "to Russia". Such a strange "confusion of consciousness".

              1) Do you not understand my question?
              2) Do you think that "purely Russian regions" are equal in area to the USSR?

      After the destruction of the USSR, it continues ...

      Consolidation of the results achieved by the collapse under the heading "cunning plan". Boris Nikolaich left only after he was convinced of the irreversibility of the processes he had started, and he chose his replacement in advance and with the consent of the President, to whom he had previously reported on the successful collapse of the union he hated.

      ... it's better to build an empire again by entering it with your territory. This applies to both Azerbaijan and Armenia ...

      Azerbaijan has already completely decided which empire it wants to enter and there the state language will not be Russian at all. The Armenians are still "stuck", let's see what the new year will bring.

    Putin is a master in many things and, above all, a world-class politician, geopolitician. Well, what is "famous for your Canadian chief? He" became famous "only for wearing stupid colored socks. What is called - feel the difference.

      Judging by the "deeds", Yeltsin could not find a more limited (to put it mildly), deceitful, cowardly and corrupt subject than the current Kremlin guest. Chubais and Kudrin helped:

    I haven't heard the phrase * world imperialism * for a very long time :)
    And only Canadian experts have it somehow preserved in their memory.
