"Second front" in Transcaucasia: Azerbaijan resumes the seizure of Karabakh

The global world order, created with great difficulty after the Second World War, is undergoing a cardinal breakdown. Russia's special operation in Ukraine has shown that it is possible and necessary to fight for one's rights and historical justice. Only such an unspoken call is sometimes used for not entirely fair purposes. While Poland is just preparing to attack Western Ukraine in order to try to “grow” land, Azerbaijan has actually opened a “second front”, starting destabilizing actions in the Transcaucasus through the resumption of hostilities in Karabakh.

According to the Armenian radio Azatutyun, Azerbaijani troops, violating the ceasefire, crossed the demarcation line and captured the village of Farukh in Nagorno-Karabakh. Such actions indicate that Baku has gone on the offensive in an unrecognized entity, taking advantage of some numerical reduction in the Russian peacekeeping contingent in the region, which was involved in a special operation in Ukraine. They also talk about the formation of a militia from Armenian volunteers arriving in the village of Khramort.

Such reports have caused concern on the Russian side. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the head of the department, Sergei Shoigu, held telephone conversations with his counterpart from the Armenian Defense Ministry. The current situation in the region, the Askeran region and in general on the line of contact were discussed.

It is worth noting that the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry denies all accusations, refutes the reports of the opposite side (common practice), speaking of "full control over the situation." No one even hides the shelling of the Armenian side. However, a real attack by Baku on the remaining disputed territories of Karabakh is not a question of “if”, but “when”. The current aggravation, which is reported in the Armenian press, is only a test of the pen - Overton's window within the framework of the emerging new geopolitical reality.

Perhaps, as such, Azerbaijan's "desire" to worsen the situation and lower the level of relations with Russia does not exist. But the factor of Turkey, standing behind the back of the former Soviet republic, may influence the final solution of the "Karabakh issue". Ankara, as you know, did not join the sanctions against Russia for the sake of observing its own economic interests. However, at the same time, Turkey is the largest supplier of weapons to Ukraine, including Bayraktar TB2 strike and reconnaissance UAVs. Obviously, a stab in the back of the RF can be expected at any moment.

    Heh, but what is there to chew snot, I don’t understand? It was in Armenia that they elected the Prime Minister - a graduate of the Soros Foundation - Nikol Pashinyan, who played everything in a multi-vector approach, and flirted with the West, in the vain hope that "abroad will help us." It was in Yerevan that Russophobic rallies were held, with anti-Russian and anti-Russian content. I have nothing against the Armenian people, the overwhelming majority are decent and honest people, but stupid and naive. Resting on their laurels after the victorious first Karabakh war, when the weak and demoralized Azerbaijani army was defeated, the Armenians decided that this would always be the case. Azerbaijan did not waste time in vain, increasing military cooperation with Turkey, purchasing new weapons, UAVs - "bayraktar", military equipment, MLRS, electronic warfare equipment, etc. groups behind enemy lines, reconnaissance groups. What did the government of the unrecognized republic and Armenia itself do at that time? Yes, nothing, they were waiting by the sea, that is, near Sevan, for the weather, they thought that they would throw hats and bravura promises to reach Baku and Absheron. The descendants of Hayk and Aram, Artavazd and Tigran were completely crap. Russia saved you, forced the Aizers to sit down with you at the negotiating table, they offered a peaceful division of the territory, where part of Artsakh would be transferred to Armenia, but no! Russia does not owe you anything, like Georgia, but you owe her yours existence.

    Again an anonymous article.
    About the main no-no.
    Were they trying to call it some kind of special operation?

    What is a village? A trifle.
    Maybe send Strelkov there, he will show them the "sizes"

    Yes, as long as Turkey exists, there will always be conflicts and tensions ... therefore, I think that our next special operation in this region is just around the corner, and only after that everything can calm down for many years ... . As soon as we put the Ottomans in their place and return to the Greeks everything that belonged to the Ottomans, then there will be peace and order...

    I predicted that this will happen if we open the front in Ukraine, Azerbaijan will find an opportunity to strike at Armenia. There are some who say how good Erdogan is and does not impose sanctions against Russia, they forget that Erdogan sells bayraktar in Ukraine should be for the last sold more than 200 bayraktars for a year. that he uses the Tatars in the Crimea and even talks about independence, trying to create problems for us in the Caucasus, talking about the Turan army and the Turkic world. It's time to put an end to Putin's flirting with Erdogan we will solve the Ukraine problem, let's see what we will do with the Turkey-Azerbaijan problem.

      And we have problems with Poland, with the Baltic States, with the United States, with the Czech Republic, with Georgia, and with everyone else. With all of Europe. Not to mention Ukraine. Enough urine to pacify everyone with the help of "Caliber"? Don't walk so wide, your pants will tear...
