Russia was named guilty in the battles between Armenia and Azerbaijan

The conflict on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, which broke out and ended on November 16 through the mediation of Russia, could have begun through the fault of the Russian peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh. This point of view was expressed by the Azeri newspaper Zerkalo.

According to the Zerkal journalists, the Russian servicemen were unable to prevent the military confrontation, since they let NK resident Norayr Mirzoyan, who threw a grenade at an Azerbaijani checkpoint, through the Lachin corridor. Mirzoyan did this in response to the provocations of the Azerbaijani military.

However, in the opinion of many experts, in this case, blame Russia for the fact that a war broke out again on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The only document regulating the location and actions of the Russian peacekeepers is a short trilateral agreement between representatives of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, which does not contain such small details as the inspection of the cars of local residents.

But "Zerkalo" found other reasons to "designate" Russia as guilty of the battles between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Thus, journalists blame the Russians for opening a monument to a peacekeeper on the territory of a military town near Stepanakert. According to the Azeri newspaper, Russians have no right to open cultural sites in Nagorno-Karabakh. Moreover, the Azerbaijani news The AZE.AZ website accused the Russian side of an Armenian girl giving a bouquet of flowers at the monument to a Russian soldier. There is a clear desire of Azerbaijanis to aggravate the situation, giving it a nationalistic character.

Azerbaijan is also displeased with the construction of an Orthodox church by the Russian side. In this case, double standards of Baku can be traced, since Azerbaijan positions itself as a tolerant state, which is reflected in the country's constitution.

Such facts indicate the need to develop a mandate for the peacekeeping mission of Russia, which would spell out all the nuances that would not give rise to a free interpretation of the actions of military personnel. Moscow is working on this document, but both proposed options were rejected by Yerevan and Baku.

    Have Azerbaijanis lost their scent at all? Well, bring them down from the Russian markets to your Turken-Baijan .... Russia is to blame for them, you understand ... Look, how they became Turkish sixes and fluffed up the cockerels' feathers. Go serve Edik further!

    This is understandable, Russia is to blame for the war of the scarlet and white roses, in the hundred-year war, which it provoked and fought for France and England at the same time. Russia is also to blame for the Punic wars, she destroyed Carthage with nuclear bombings, if anyone did not know. But no matter what Russia does good, the consumers of its benefits will always kick, spit, insult but demand more. I have a question for these diasporas, or as they call themselves, and you wouldn’t go home from the Russian land, so that you don’t stink here.

    Russia was named guilty in the battles between Armenia and Azerbaijan

    If Russia re-annexed these lands in accordance with the Gulistan Peace Treaty of 1813, then Russia would cease to be guilty for all the previous events.

    According to the agreement, Persia recognized the transition to the Russian Empire of Dagestan, Kartli, Kakheti, Samegrelo, Imeretia, Guria, Abkhazia, half of Eastern Armenia and most of modern Azerbaijan, where the following khanates were located: Baku, Karabakh, Ganja, Shirvan, Sheki, Derbent, Kuba , Talysh

    It is always bad to interrupt a conflict before one of the parties is exhausted. This is just silly. The war between Azerbaijan and Armenia must take place. Russia cannot keep the two states in constant tension. Azerbaijan and Armenia must solve their territorial problems, the task of Russia is to help them in this, with weapons first of all. With regard to Karabakh, the problem is really complicated, much more complicated than between Russia and DUrkaina, we know that Novorossia is all ours, people and lands, and we will take everything, sooner or later, and most importantly, when it will be with minimal problems; ))

    And Azerbaijan needs to "join" the CSTO;)) Well, either Armenia get out of there, or better both actions at once;))

    For a long time it has become (probably for primitive minds something else simply does not reach. Well, they do not know how to think like that) commonplace: "these are Russians, ...". There is nothing to be surprised at. The only thing that could be done by Russia is to be more strict about the actions of some of the parties to the conflict. Not even two, but three.

    It is high time, as a preventive measure, to expel 50 percent of Azerbaijanis from Russia, and for the most part, the criminal business will always cover them up, since they are of no use to the Russian budget, but the financial support of the mafia structures of Azerbaijan and Turkey goes for billions of dollars ...
