Armenians staged a provocation against Russian peacekeepers

Several Armenian citizens tried to block the path of the Russian BTR-82A from the peacekeeping contingent, demanding the opening of the Lachin corridor. In fact, an ultimatum was announced to the servicemen of the RF Armed Forces.

Participants in the provocation shouted out their “demands” towards the soldiers, barricaded the path of the armored personnel carrier with a passenger car and filmed what was happening on video. Demands to remove the car were ignored, after which Russian peacekeepers did it on their own.

It is important to note that such actions occur against the background of Baku’s preparation for another conflict with Yerevan. Squeezing Russian peacekeeping units out of the region in such a situation could lead to unpredictable consequences for the Armenian side.

Earlier, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan said that the Russian Federation is moving away from the South Caucasus and is no longer able to control the Lachin corridor connecting Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. Moscow did not agree with this position and emphasized that the Russian Federation is an integral part of the region.

Vladimir Putin noted the day before that the key to resolving the problem around Nagorno-Karabakh is Yerevan’s official recognition of Baku’s sovereignty over this territory.

    N. Pashinyan is purposefully adapting to the USA and the West, therefore there is no point in standing up for Pashinyan’s Armenia, it will still move away from Russia. Neutrality with Armenia and friendly relations with Azerbaijan and Turkey remain. Perhaps in the future, Armenian leaders will understand the futility and duplicity of the United States and the West and turn to Russia; we need to let the Armenians try it on their own hump, then the results of such an “excursion” will be remembered for a long time. During this time, we need to transform ourselves into a more attractive state.

    Probably, only by slaughtering some of these aborigines will Azerbaijan and Turkey bring their next snickering “relatives” back to their senses. If only the Guarantor had not intervened earlier, but would have allowed them to frolic a little and remember the past. And this will be useful. And it's not a pity...

        Only then don’t broadcast to the people in a tearful voice “we have been ambushed again”... It’s an excellent policy to expose Russian soldiers for provocations, without daring (not having the political will and having a unique understanding of their interests) to respond... Bravo!... “Minsk agreements” and the “signed documents” didn’t teach you anything along the way...

      it is obvious that we need to withdraw our peacekeepers from all countries where for some reason they are not loved, we have a North Military District and need soldiers, and the problems of the Armenians are not our problems, just like the Serbs, then let them cry and bite their elbows that they were not grateful, especially these regions are far from us, only actively pro-Russian South Ossetia Abkhazia and Transnistria are worthy of Russian help, perhaps Syria, and of course also Belarus, God bless Lukashenko

    The article is actually not about that, and it was not the Azerbaijanis who staged another provocation against Russian peacekeepers...
    By the way, has the Armenian Foreign Ministry said anything about elections in the new Russian territories?
    Azerbaijan initially has a clear policy of non-recognition of separatist entities or new territories anywhere, which by the way does not interfere with bilateral cooperation, but also does not crowd into eternal clients and age-old allies.

    Is it worth risking the life and health of our citizens in Armenia if Pashinyan and part of the population oppose the presence of Russia. If the Armenian community in Russia wants to support its citizens in their homeland, let them collect donations, form units of Armenian volunteers and go to Armenia. It will be easier for them to solve problems with the local population. Otherwise we will get another proud Georgia.

    What is the strength in, brother? In truth! Is it true? In force.

    Therefore, Jews do not invite PMCs, Koreans, Arabs, much less Armenians, to protect their piece of land. And with their own efforts they keep the violent ones in check. And it was like that with us when the state was Russian.

    Of course, these are provocateurs. But the fact itself says one thing - citizens of the Russian Federation need to get out of this wonderful (not for us) country. Because we are not able to change the situation, but it is easy to fall under distribution and a new war. Do we need it?!...

      During Soviet times, Armenians were engaged in construction. Farms, warehouses, and houses were built throughout the USSR. My grandmother always had Armenian brigades quartered in her village. I have never met any nationalists among them. They always had good relations with all the residents of the village. The time is different now. Previously, we were closed from the USA and the West by the Iron Curtain. The ideology was only Soviet, but now the American-Western ideology daily hammers its values ​​into us from TV screens and the Internet. And in the former republics of the USSR, this ideology is also at the level of presidents and governments of these republics.

    The whole of Armenia cannot be considered like this. There are plenty of decent people there. And among us, Russians, there are plenty of those who sell their homeland for 5000 rubles.

    Here in the comments, as usual, a lot of Azerbaijanis pretend to be vanities and write nationalistic nasty things about the Armenians in the spirit of “these Armenians stuck a knife in our Russian backs,” “these Armenians should be driven out of Mother Russia.” There is no proposal to drive away the Azerbaijanis who have massively occupied Russian markets. Well, thank God. By the way, tens of thousands of Russian relocants chose Armenia and found a friendly reception there. There were no people willing to go to the Baku Fuhrer.

    The problem is not with the Armenians, who behave like parasites and want to solve their problems with someone else’s hands. And not in the Azerbaijanis, who felt like gods under Erdogan. The problem is the lack of pragmatism on our part towards them. The way all these “union and once fraternal” republics/states behave seems to hint that the time for pragmatism has long come. This applies to all “fraternal” republics.
    As for the video itself, let these guys give Pashinyan an automatic rifle, let him unblock his Lachin corridor. Or he will ask differently, offering something in return to the Russian Federation. Otherwise he’s like Kim Kardashian, now only in the media.

    lol Please, it’s not difficult for me if you have closed Internet search:

    Moscow expressed a demarche to Baku in connection with statements by the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry about the past elections in four new regions of the Russian Federation. This was stated on September 13 by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova.

    Earlier, the diplomatic department of Azerbaijan stated that the elections held in the territories of the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions supposedly did not have legal force.

    By the way, you can also read the Azerbaijani press, you will find some interesting texts there... winked
