The war in Karabakh becomes protracted: nothing has changed strategically in five days of the conflict

For five days at the front in Nagorno-Karabakh, practically nothing has changed strategically. The conflict takes on the character of a "war of attrition", which means that sooner or later the parties will have to sit down again at the negotiating table.


Apparently, Armenia and Azerbaijan will not be able to resolve the long-standing territorial dispute by military means again. Despite the superiority in population, the number of various weapons, as well as a more favorable economic position, Azerbaijan still underestimates the enemy.

Armenia is a "tough nut to crack" with a well-motivated population, the support of the multi-million Armenian diaspora from all over the world - from Russia to the United States. And to defeat the Armenian army in Nagorno-Karabakh is a very difficult task. Interestingly, Azerbaijan prefers not to talk about its military losses, although the Armenian side publishes lists of dead servicemen and civilians.

In addition, one should not forget: the Armenians will fight in the NKR not for life, but to the death, because they perfectly understand that in the event of the occupation of its territory by Azerbaijani troops, this will mean an inevitable exodus of Armenians from Karabakh with huge casualties among the civilian population. There is practically no Azerbaijani population in Karabakh, and this circumstance makes the motivation of the Armenian and Azerbaijani military unequal.

On October 1, the Presidents of the United States, Russia and France Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and Emmanuel Macron appealed to the authorities of Armenia and Azerbaijan with an appeal to immediately stop hostilities and sit down at the negotiating table. According to the leaders of the powers, the solution to the Karabakh problem can be found exclusively through diplomatic means.

These words run counter to the position of Ilham Aliyev, who argued that Armenia must immediately liberate the occupied territories, otherwise Azerbaijan will take them by force. As a result, the Azerbaijani president turned out to be a hostage of his own words: if the Azerbaijani armed forces fail to occupy at least a significant part of the NKR territory, then image losses are inevitable.

Fighting with the Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh is not easy. After all, thirty years ago Azerbaijan was larger than Armenia in terms of population. However, they failed to defend the NKR. Now the situation seems to be repeating itself. Everything can change for the worse for Armenia and NKR only if Turkey openly intervenes in the conflict in Karabakh.

But while Ankara retains relative prudence: armed aggression against one of the CSTO members can lead to a very serious conflict in the region, with the participation of not only Armenia, NKR, Azerbaijan and Turkey, but also Russia, possibly some other CSTO members, as well as Iran. Recep Erdogan understands the sad prospects of Turkey in this case, so he refrains from open aggression against Armenia for now, although military-technical support is being provided to Azerbaijan and pro-Turkish mercenaries from Syria and Libya have already been deployed to the region.

The most likely outcome of the current events will be the further preservation of the previous status of the NKR and the continuation of negotiations between Armenia and Azerbaijan. At least, this is exactly what is expected in Moscow, Washington, Paris, Berlin. However, Recep Erdogan, with his inherent self-confidence, has already stated that the powers (USA, Russia and France) have lost the right to come up with peacekeeping initiatives.

It is sad that the price of the next surge in Turkey's ambitions is the human lives of both Armenian and Azerbaijani soldiers and civilians.

If we talk about Russian interests in Transcaucasia, then it is worth recalling: unlike Azerbaijan, Armenia is a member of the CSTO and a constant participant in all military maneuvers conducted by this organization. It is in Armenia that the Russian military base is located.

Strengthening the Azerbaijani positions in the Transcaucasus will definitely also strengthen Turkey's positions, which is not at all in Moscow's interests. Russia simply cannot allow Turkey's aggression against Armenia, otherwise it will be a grave geopolitical defeat for our country and a spit in the face of the current Russian government.

        There, everyone has their own truth, since there is no obvious military advantage - they will let off steam and will soon sit down at the negotiating table! Not one side cannot withstand a long conflict.

          What table?
          What kind of negotiations?
          This is bullshit.

          They themselves can only agree on another massacre.
          It must be admitted that they will not agree on anything on their own.

          Peace there is possible only under the cap of Russia.

          Otherwise, only temporary truce with the escalation of ethnic strife at the time of this truce.

            You will restrain your emotions, otherwise you will fall off the couch! What difference does it make with whose mediation they will agree and who will deal with the reconciliation? Direct parties to the conflict, Armenia and Azerbaijan, will be negotiating!
            Yes, even a temporary truce, a bad Peace - Better than a good War!

Harnessing for the Armenians - cutting off all ties with Azerbaijan (by the way, an excellent trading partner) is also not an option! Better to stay above the fray, at least for now!

                    Insurgent, there are prisoners in any military conflict! Believe me, either side. Even those with the highest motivation do not surrender - they can injure or concussion. In this conflict - Nobody! There are no shots of captured wounded Armenians or Azerbaijanis. Even from the videos you have shown, are you sure that everyone was mortally wounded?

                      Isn't the Armenian side interested in presenting such a "specimen" of the prisoner to the "world community"?
                      It just didn't work out ... War, and anything can happen there.

                      For example, I know examples when, in 14th, when I was drunk, with a fool, some individuals themselves went to the Ukrop positions and ended up in captivity ...

            Look at yourself from the outside. See what you are doing. How you behave. What kind of Armenians are you? " - turned to compatriots Simonyan. She recalled that Armenia, despite the kindness and protection it received from Russia, did not recognize Crimea as Russian. Also, the Armenian authorities imprisoned Robert Kocharian, who has always been an ally of Russia. “They planted them on purpose, defiantly, spitting right in the face of their“ Russian friends, ”” Simonyan said.

            Also, Yerevan flooded the republic with anti-Russian NGOs and became a springboard for anti-Russian forces in the North Caucasus. The Armenian authorities expelled Russian Armenian businessmen from the country and continue to water Russia with "slops". "You divided the unfortunate, already disappearing Armenian people into enemies - Russian Armenians - and" real "- those who support your momentary power," the editor-in-chief of RT believes. And he reminds that all this has always been based on the "internal affair" of Armenia.

            “And now, when there is a war on your border, when the very existence of your regime is under threat, when the Armenians of the whole world are already seeing the revived ghosts of janissaries with crooked knives with which they cut our ancestors, you have remembered that Russia must save you again,” sums up Simonyan ...

            Your glass is half empty wassat Azerbaijan inflicted losses and lost itself. Moreover, from a third to half of its potential. The numbers need to be clarified, the Armenians are not shooting from drones, but from positions, but since the attacking side cannot break through the front, it means that they leave equipment and bodies on the field. This is the law of war. The number of personnel from drones of Baku residents has decreased. Armenians learn to counteract by blood, so they will learn quickly. Only the CSTO stops Turkey, and everyone knows that. Therefore, the attempts of the Armenians to involve us in their fake actions. And military aid comes from Russia and only from Russia. Hot-tempered Azerbaijanis instantly turn from reports to pogroms. And try to stop. Also, the line of concealing losses is fraught. You need to bury heroes with fanfare, and not bury them silently or even throw them on the field. Whoever sees it on the front line wilts sharply. Because he understands that he will be lying around like that. The same Erdogan from the funeral puts on a show. And here ...

                There is a military logic. The advancing departing leaves a lot on the field. Therefore, the victorious reports of the Armenians are closer to the truth. And I saw how the Bakuvians demine the field ... with their tanks laughing But the Armenians publish losses, but the enemy does not. It evokes heroism and enthusiasm. And the suppression of losses leads to hopelessness. Now the AR army is kept on roller skates from drones. But some of the blows go to false plywood targets. Another would be for the Armenians to learn to scatter, and not to clump together when attacking. These are the properties of the mentality of both wassat stray into a flock, and at the moment of truth turning into a flock.

And I saw how the Bakuvians clear the field ... with their tanks. But the Armenians publish their losses, but the enemy does not. It evokes heroism and enthusiasm. And the suppression of losses leads to hopelessness.

        I apologize for interfering, but the actions of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces are reminiscent of the actions of the Red Army near Rzhev. Similar attacks on fortified points, regardless of losses, the main thing is to take at any cost, and then the political officers will inflate victory, and the "special officers" will control the joy.

Do you seriously think that an army of mercenaries is fighting with Armenia, who are being kicked into battle by officers? Armenia has less equipment, and it is still regularly knocked out by drones. They do not attack, they only defend themselves and still suffer heavy losses in technology. If you paid attention to Azerbaijan, at first there were videos with strikes on air defense, then on tanks, then on artillery, now they are beating on clusters of infantry ... What can this say? That there are no more worthy goals left? Hopefully not because of this. But how long will they last? Military transport workers from the Russian Federation cannot bring many tanks there

            You know, regarding the defeat of Armenian equipment, I now came across interesting information on one of the websites covering the conflict: it turns out that back in 2013, Armenia signed a contract with a Polish company specializing in the production of inflatable models of military equipment. Under the contract, a factory was built in Armenia and the production of such models began, so the author of the article expressed a restrained opinion about the large amount of destroyed equipment that maybe "everything is not so simple." And about the defense - the Red Army, too, first defended itself on the Kursk Bulge, then went on the offensive, and in the Armenian army there are enough officers who served in the SA and studied the tactics and strategy of the Second World War, and then I think the laurels of Marshal Baghramyan haunt some Khachikyan and he was tempted to arrange the Kursk Bulge. It is not the first year that Karabakh has been on the defensive, fortifications have been built, the advance lines have been shot at, the column has been stripped down as dashingly, and mostly with barrel artillery. So we'll see who has more reserves. Blitzkrieg did not come out, but in a trench war ...

    Azerbaijan inflicted losses and lost itself. Moreover, from a third to half of its potential. The numbers need to be clarified, the Armenians are not shooting from drones, but from positions, but since the attacking side cannot break through the front, it means that they leave equipment and bodies on the field. This is the law of war. The number of personnel from drones of Baku residents has decreased. Armenians learn to counteract by blood, so they will learn quickly.

    Since there are no critical changes in Karabakh, a war of attrition begins. But here Azerbaijan has more resources. And we all know very well that an economic defeat is sometimes worse than a military one.

      Everything indicates that the Azerbaijani - Turkish military staked on the defeat of the Armenian air defense and the maximum knockout of equipment (MBT and Artillery), and only after that they planned a total offensive with the support of aviation. .. these are assumptions .. of course.

      What should they talk about? Each side considers Karabakh its own, period. There can be no compromise here in principle - Armenians and Azerbaijanis will not get along together. No outside restraining force. IMHO - you have to wait for them to fight and not come to a final stalemate. Then a truce is possible. But not the world. Sooner or later, there will be a fight again. The only chance is for both countries to return to Russia. But why do we need it? We already have representatives of both peoples, your roofs ...

Remember the Chechen companies, remember the pogroms, after all, they are not our allies in anything. And at the household level, living and working here, they hate our people and country.

      You have a great chance to personally volunteer for Nagorno-Karabakh if ​​you really don't want to go to Donbass. No need to pay to Russian Power. She does everything just right. The Russian soldier must fight for the interests of Russia and not for the interests of the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh. This is not even the case for Armenia. There are 3 million Armenians in Armenia. There are 6 million of them in the world. So they have enough people. Their diaspora also has a lot of money. So there is no need to hide behind the back of the Russian Ivan. We chose Soros Pashinyan, well, then let them turn to the US and the EU .. So let's ourselves .. by ourselves.

Why - I ask why Should Russia help Armenia? On what basis? So from old memory? So no, the Armenians betrayed us by choosing Pashinyan, who is a completely pro-Western politician from Soros's nest. As did his entire team. CSTO, you say? So it does not apply to NK. I am not for Azerbaijan and not for Armenians - they are completely indifferent to me. They are brave and proud only in the markets .. Let them figure it out themselves and we'll see how they do it.

          Turkey's position in Azerbaijan has been strong since the 90s. Since then, Turkey's positions in Azerbaijan have been strengthening, and are by an order of magnitude superior to those of Russia.

        As long as the Turks do not cross the Armenian border, they have the legal right to intervene in the Karabakh conflict, Prigozhin said in an interview with Aydinlik newspaper. - Armenia and Azerbaijan found an opportunity to stop the clashes in Nagorno-Karabakh for many years, Russia put them at the negotiating table. After the Orange Revolution of 2018, that is, after Pashinyan came to power in Armenia, many American non-governmental organizations appeared in the country. This is the crux of the problem. Conflict provoked by Americans

        Amers have a cooperative of the former NATO "top" commanders. For inexpensive plans for local wars they cook and sell ... Last time they vparili such a plan to Saakashvili, which led to the war of three eights

    "And to defeat the Armenian army in Nagorno-Karabakh is a very difficult task."
    There is one serious point here.
    In particular, not only Karabakh is being stormed, but also other territories seized earlier by Armenia.
    In general, a wonderful situation.
    Armenia has seized territories.
    The UN and Russia, among other things, recognize the belonging of these territories to Azerbaijan.
    At the same time, attempts to liberate these territories are strongly condemned.
    Moreover, the rapprochement of Azerbaijan with Turkey is condemned, when no other choice was left to Azerbaijan.
    And in what, in fact, has Azerbaijan been so guilty before everyone?
    It can kick Armenia's ass with the whole world, tie Azerbaijan hand and foot and introduce a peacekeeping contingent.
    Not fair?

      So Armenia is not opposed to the return of these territories, the security belt, in exchange for a referendum on the independence of the former NPO and ties with the mainland, indicated in terms of time (although there was a referendum there 25 years ago, as recently in Crimea).

        Azerbaijan, in 16 year, ceased hostilities under the promises of Armenia and the guarantors to return these territories.
        However, Armenia not only did not liberate these territories, but also declared in the person of Pashinyan that Karabakh is definitely Armenia.
        Doesn't the position and policy of Armenia seem to be similar to the policy of Israel regarding the Golan Heights?
        They state the same.
        We would like to give, but Syria is to blame.
        The situation is very similar with Kosovo.
        The Albanians simply wrested the territory from Serbia.

        Why doesn't Armenia withdraw its troops from territories that are not part of Karabakh?
        How to deal with the Azerbaijanis expelled from the territory of Karabakh.
        They are not eligible to participate in the referendum?
        There are a lot of questions.

            And about other territories seized by Armenia.
            Why not just return them?
            The first step towards real dialogue.
            Then you can talk about the referendum.
            After all, the referendum refers only to the status of Karabakh, not these territories.
            At the moment, it is Armenia that acts as a pure occupier, both de jure and de facto.

      While the Azerbaijan SSR and the Armenian SSR existed within the framework of the Union, the internal borders of the republics were conditional and the issue of compact residence of the Armenian population in those territories from which they are now trying to oust them did not cause tension. Plus, Big Brother put out such conflicts in the bud. After gaining sovereignty, the conditional internal borders turned into external ones, and Azerbaijan had a desire to formally clear its territory of Armenians. Then the Armenians who lived in these places from time immemorial were outraged, and began to defend their right to live with the help of weapons and achieved their goal.
      Thus, the statement that the current actions of Azerbaijan are 100% legitimate is not entirely correct.

      Many things are recognized or not by the UN, Russia and others. Crimea is not recognized by the UN and 90% of the world, but this does not bother you, because this territory is yours, plus your population. And who recognizes Donbass? Northern Cyprus will be recognized as occupied by Turkey, so what?

      The question is different - you either let the Turks into your garden or not. There is no time for the Armenians and Pashinyans, etc. Basurmane swung at your influence and that's it. Nothing new - this was the case under the RI and the USSR.

And what do we get as a result, all the Transcaucasia is either under the NATO countries, or in NATO itself .... But what to do to avoid such a scenario is the question.

          No, it's just that the Armenians do not use air defense against the UAV, so that the Turkish AWACS aircraft could not reveal the location of the deployed air defense systems. They are waiting for larger birds ... Before the first attack, the Turkish RTR, of course, revealed the work of the radar and UAV on duty on them and on the models .... The Azerbaijanis early switched to striking artillery and buried tanks, as well as their dummies. And now the Armenian air defense is gradually landing their drones.

    Maybe it's enough to scare the Turkish bases? The Turks will not get into this slaughter at all, they do not need it. Do the American or NATO bases in Georgia bother you?
    To drag Russia into this conflict is the greatest folly. Both Azerbaijan and Turkey understand that to seriously attack a country that is a member of the CSTO is to make trouble for themselves. But when it comes to the territories of several regions of Azerbaijan seized by Armenia (Karabakh) or the NKR itself, no CSTO will help. Officially, these are the territories of Azerbaijan and no one will accuse them of aggression if they try to return them.
    And Nakhchivan. Already 30 years ago, it was proposed to resolve this conflict by exchanging territories. And the best thing is to implement the Kazan decisions, leaving the NKR problem "for later"

    Manufactured under license from Israeli UAVs Oribiter -1, -1K, -2, -2K (known as "Orlan" for Russians). Once again, for the Herspects, there are HUNDREDS of them in service.
    Azerbaijan is INDEPENDENT from the supply of weapons, and even more so from Turkey, whose defense industry produces products of NATO standards and calibers.

    The Azerbaijani Armed Forces are moving forward, there was no surprise factor, etc., the enemy himself provoked strikes. The nature of the terrain determines the nature of the action. The task is to liberate the territories, and not to please the sher-aspects who were broadcasting about the "blitzkrieg" and other nonsense. The troops are successfully coping with the task, significant territories have already been liberated.

    It's only the first week of fighting.

    How can you offend me? Russian citizen. Russia did not have a systemic enemy. The army is a system, it is not an illegal armed group. And in the battles with illegal armed groups, not everything was as smooth as one would like to think.
    In addition, one should never judge the army by commercials or the actions of special forces, especially since the latter lose most of their advantages in a combined arms battle.

    Quote: Olezhek
    And in general, I would not compare the army of Russia and Azerbaijan (qualitatively)
    Why not? As in my opinion so in vain ...
    Let me try.
    So, at the moment X, on the one hand, we have Russia, rounded from 140 million. population, on the other hand Azerbaijan, rounded 8 million. population. The difference in population is 17,5 times, the difference in area is 197,4 times. Armed forces including border troops and stationary (internal) troops Russia - 1,34 million people, Azerbaijan 0,12 million. man. One serviceman for the number of citizens, Russia 1/105, Azerbaijan 1/67.
    At the time of X - the high level of oil prices, the difference in per capita income from oil exports was 2,7 times in favor of Russia, while Russia still has many income items from the export of raw materials from ore to timber, and weapons that Azerbaijan does not have ...
    Plus, Azerbaijan has almost 1 million. refugees, that is, 1/8 of the population, if applied to Russia, it would amount to 17,5 million. man - think about it ...
    What we have in Russia we see everything, and now what we have in Azerbaijan:
    - production of UAVs, started earlier by Russia, some of the types Russia is not in service and does not produce until now;
    - production of ammunition, explosives and powder, and related products - created from scratch;
    - production of small arms - created from scratch;
    - production of mortars, grenade launchers - created from scratch;
    - production of light armored vehicles - created from scratch;
    - production of communications equipment - created from scratch;
    - production of sights and observation equipment - created from scratch;
    - production of equipment and uniforms - created from scratch;
    - a shipyard for the construction and assembly of boats and corvettes - created from scratch;
    - repair of armored vehicles - created from scratch;
    - repair and assembly of the Su-25 - created on the basis of an aircraft repair plant;
    - military academy, school of border troops, faculties - from scratch;
    etc.
    - in the end, a constellation of dual-purpose communication and surveillance satellites - from scratch.

    Many drew attention to the fact that Azerbaijan made a stake, for example, on a UAV and made it before Russia, and having fewer resources and capabilities, are the Azerbaijani officers responsible for planning and construction so narrow-minded? As a result, the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan have more modern types of them, if relatively more than Russia, and until recently had and generally more than the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, some types in the Russian army still do not ...
    You can compare relatively (I mean the number) qualitative superiority in many weapons. Judge for yourself, Russia has supplied Azerbaijan with 100 T-90S units. With the number of all tanks about 400 units, the most modern ones make up 25%, what is our indicator? Remember the modernized T-72, do not forget that the T-72 was modernized in the Azerbaijani Armed Forces much earlier, and taking into account our lag in the development of modern sights, rangefinders and the fact that Azerbaijan has modernized the forces of Israeli specialists, and Israel produces more modern devices and sights, then ...
    Another example. Taking advantage of the discord between Russia and Georgia after 08.08.08. purchased from Georgia not only kits for the final assembly from Russia, purchasing engines for the Su-25 from Russia, and also purchased all the documentation and equipment. Azerbaijan assembles the Su-25 at once in the "Scorpion" version, which, to put it mildly, is not inferior to the Su-25SM of various stages. When I saw the Garmin household navigator in the cockpit of the latter as standard equipment of a modern and modernized aircraft ...

    So compare - feed the refugees, improve the country, create a modern army, create a modern military-industrial complex practically from scratch.
    Others should not be underestimated, and even more so, one should not be condescending and biased. The train left a long time ago, the USSR collapsed 30 years ago, a lot has changed, it was the Soviet Union, the Ukraine, Belarus, and others who did not have it. The Armed Forces of Azerbaijan have long grown, formed and strengthened, acquired their own traditions. If the top officers are not the weakest cadres of the Soviet Army, no worse than ours, but the younger generation of officers, this is a separate topic of conversation.

    I was at the jubilee of my unit, 25 years old, before that I also visited, I didn't like something, now I envy the young officers of my unit for good. Before that I served in the RF Armed Forces, so life has developed, so I saw both armies at different stages and now I have the opportunity to see from the inside, compare, see strengths and weaknesses. You may not take my word for it, but the RF Armed Forces do not have a significant qualitative superiority over the Azerbaijan Armed Forces, relative or proportionally.

    About the Armed Forces of Armenia, this is an army of the Soviet model and not its best times, but this is an army, not a rabble of bearded men. To understand the other, it is often worth putting yourself in his place, so put the Russian army in the same conditions as the Azerbaijani one. The Russian army is advancing and is conducting a general military battle, what would happen there in 4-5 days?

    Quote: Olezhek
    You know, I will say this: until the Armenian defense collapsed
    There is no blitzkrieg in the mountains.
    Let's see, of course, but the complete victory of Azerbaijan is very unlikely ...
    Let's see how quickly the offensive fizzles out.
    War, planning of actions are determined not only by the conditions of the relief, the quality and quantity of weapons and personnel. A war in the mountains against a systemic enemy and illegal armed groups is not the same thing. The army is a system, the system has advantages, but also disadvantages, in the mountains, for example, the army is more constrained than illegal armed groups, for example, not having the flexibility and mobility of the latter. For what kind of war Azerbaijan was preparing and how events will develop in the future, it is not difficult to make assumptions, knowing the composition of its Armed Forces, the types and number of acquired weapons and systems, the established production facilities for the production of ammunition and weapons.
    Everything that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces are doing now, they are doing the right thing, you just need to think for yourself, not to accept other people's thoughts without considering and criticizing them.
    .
    And by the way, many systems in service with the Azerbaijani Armed Forces are more modern than systems not only of their counterparts in Russia, but also in Turkey.

    The offensive has not fizzled out, continues and will not stop.

      Well, believe me, the RF Armed Forces are already “slightly” different, and the weapons and technologies that the RF have in Azerbaijan will never appear from “zero” or from any other figure. How today the Russian Federation opposes the so-called illegal armed groups can be seen in the example of Syria (there are so many beards that it is better not to count), and it is worth noting that not all of the arsenal and means are used there. So your comparison of the two armies, to put it mildly, is not correct.

    Armed aggression against one of the CSTO members ... on the territory of Azerbaijan. I have a purely medical, clinical interest as a psychological anomaly. Let me be curious, what is the CSTO doing on the territory of Azerbaijan, what would Azerbaijan not be doing, except for an attack on the territory of a CSTO member country? Are you out of your mind Polonsky? In general, Azerbaijan is liberating its territory, and is not fighting on the territory of Armenia. That is, the CSTO will defend Armenia on the territory of ... Azerbaijan, in your opinion? And what if it occurs to Armenia to "liberate" allegedly "their" lands in Turkey or Iran, then it turns out that these countries cannot defend themselves with the help of their allies? The CSTO will upset. For information, Armenia is located on the territory of Azerbaijan, right in the middle of the country, in the Fizuli region (before the occupation, populated exclusively by Azerbaijanis), is this kind of normal, in the order of things ?. This is where the battles are going now. And to drive them out of there, even if suddenly with someone else's help (theoretically), then this is already casus belli. Did you get drunk with Armenian brandy there? That is, Azerbaijan has no right to fight back, even theoretically, with someone else's help? But what about Article 51 of the UN Charter on the exercise of the right to self-defense, individual or COLLECTIVE attention? Or are international laws more criminal concepts for you? As I want, I understand.
    It turns out that Syria had no right to call on Russia and a whole bunch of countries and organizations such as the IRGC, Hezbollah, Fatimiyun, etc., to fight off an attack from outside? But what about the thesis that foreign armed forces fighting in favor of the Syrian government are and are fighting legally at the official invitation of the legitimate government of Syria?

    The RF Armed Forces are not the Lord God to believe without seeing, I see every day, you can say from the window.
    Azerbaijan simply does not need many systems that the Russian Federation has, it is necessary to proceed from the probable threats and their assessment. In the north is Russia, a nuclear country with a population of more than 140 million and an army of one million; in the south, Iran, with an 80 million population, a missile program and nuclear ambitions; in the west, Turkey, a NATO country, with the second largest army of this bloc.
    Any enemy should not be underestimated, but the war with Armenia is not something on which to build strategic plans for a long-term period.
    For example, now Azerbaijan is at war, but keeps forces in the south and especially in the north, how and how can Azerbaijan, if not stop Russia, then detain or, under the threat of large losses, not go into a direct armed clash like with Georgia? Again, to understand the other, put yourself in his place, see what and how he has already done, what plans you know and understand what to expect, well, returning to our topic, what weapons systems and how much they are needed. War is also an economy, opportunities and the smartest one who with the least cost ensures the greatest damage to the enemy and the solution of the set costs.

    For example, how much does an attack drone cost? And how much does the tank, infantry fighting vehicle, armored personnel carrier, air defense system, etc., destroyed by him cost? In the end, how much is an enemy squad or platoon destroyed in a dugout? ...

    Azerbaijan in the same Karabakh faced a number of tasks and I believe that the leadership of Azerbaijan and the army found the correct and most effective solutions in their situation from all points of view.
