Military Review

Who are you, Nikol Pashinyan?

120

This article appeared as a continuation material about the war in Nagorno-Karabakh... It appeared simply because Armenia today is far from being the friendly state that many imagine it to be and what it was a couple of years ago. Armenia has become an excellent illustration of how easily and quickly it is possible to "turn" the country back. How one person and one party can change in a short time not only the vector of the country's development, but the fate of many good, smart, hard-working people.


I again have to compare the post-Soviet state, caught on the hook of Western (Soros) propaganda, with what they are trying to do with Belarus today. Armenia today is about the same as Ukraine, successfully changing not only the country, but the consciousness of people with the help of complex processing according to the scenarios of Western political strategists. It is no coincidence that a huge number of Armenians living in Russia are second-class people for Yerevan. Unworthy participation in the political life of Armenia.

How people seized power. Armenian variant


I will not start with the textbooks. The goal of any "velvet revolution", except for those that everyone is talking about and writing about, is to instill in the people in a short time hatred of Moscow and the Russians, pointing out them as the culprits of all troubles. This is done under the guise of a struggle for democracy and as if within the framework of the aspirations of the entire population of the country. The people sincerely believe that power will indeed pass into the hands of those who speak out for the people on social networks and at rallies.

But after a short time, it suddenly turns out that instead of a democratic state, the revolution creates an authoritarian state, with the rule of not the constitution and laws of the country, but the charter of some NGOs and political parties that clearly express the opinion of the minority. But hatred for Moscow is obscure, and even this fact is explained by the influence of the Kremlin, the actions of Russian agents and pro-Russian separatists. And the country thus finds itself in the zone of political interests of the West, in particular the United States, with the corresponding consequences for culture, education, economy, traditions, the army and others.

Pashinyan, the current prime minister, appears on the political arena of Armenia. not by chance. And the will of the people to call it somehow does not turn the tongue. The leader of the Elk party, which won 7-9% of the vote in the elections, but who became the leader of the protest in mid-April 2018, simply could not become the voice of the people. And the protests were organized by this particular party.

What happened, why did the Armenian people so easily surrendered power to the political "nobody" on April 19-20 and the prime minister on May 8, 2018? Such a metamorphosis is not uncommon for politicians. But like this: on April 22, after failed negotiations with President Sargsyan, Pashinyan and almost 250 of his supporters were arrested, and two weeks later ...

In fact, President Serzh Sargsyan, ousted by Pashinyan, was to blame for such a political takeoff. And it was Sargsyan who prepared the revolution. It was at his direction in the period from 2010-2017. Armenia gradually changed the vector of its movement. A huge number of Western NGOs, foundations, sects and other organizations and societies were allowed into the country, which gradually began to seize power in the country.

I will quote the opinion of the Armenian political scientist Suren Ionisyan from an article he published in 2019 in the "Independent Military Review":

“The foundation of the well-known expert in the destruction of states, George Soros,“ Open Society Armenia ”, as well as such sects as“ Jehovah's Witnesses ”,“ Word of Life Church ”, Mormons are working in Armenia. These sects have more than 200 thousand parishioners in Armenia, and this is with a total population of 2,5 million people. According to the available data, more than 3,5 thousand NGOs are registered and work in Armenia, most of which are financed by the governments of Western countries, mainly the USA, France, Great Britain. "


How Nikol Pashinyan unfolds the country


Strength of the Armenian people, the wisdom of the Armenian people, millennial история the Armenian people exist not only due to some innate genius of the Armenians or their ability to survive under constant pressure from neighbors. The Armenian spirit exists because any Armenian, in whatever country he lives, a citizen of whatever state he is, always remains an Armenian, always remembers Armenia and does everything for Armenia to flourish.

The largest Armenian diaspora in the world is the Russian diaspora. In some of the speeches of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the number sounded: about 3 million people! Can you imagine a diaspora that is larger than the population of Armenia? Moreover, this number includes not only Russian citizens of Armenian origin, but also citizens of Armenia temporarily residing in our country.

What is Nikol Pashinyan doing towards these people? He actually turns them into second-class Armenians. The "fake Armenians". He forms the opinion among the people of Armenia that those who for some reason live in Russia are no longer Armenians, but Russians. In order to prevent ordinary citizens of the country from being able to verify this information, the government closes the television and radio broadcasting of Russian channels in the country. Pretext? Possible violations of Armenian legislation by these channels!

Let me remind you that on July 18, in her Telegram channel, Margarita Simonyan wrote an appeal to the Armenian authorities.

“In response to the long-term goodness and protection that you received from Russia, you did not recognize Crimea. Because this is an internal affair of Armenia. You imprisoned Robert Kocharyan, a permanent ally of Russia solely out of political revenge ... You have flooded the country with anti-Russian NGOs that teach young people on your territory how to overthrow the government in Russia. You have become a springboard for anti-Russian forces in the Caucasus ",

She listed.

To express her position, as the editor-in-chief of RT wrote, she was forced by the "Internet troops" of the Armenian authorities.

"After everything you've done, Russia has every moral right to spit on you and rub you."

Remember what Margarita Pashinyan answered in an interview with RBC?

“Russia should understand that Russia's ally in Armenia is not Pashinyan, not Petrosyan, not Poghosyan, not Sargsyan, not Kocharyan, the ally and partner is the Armenian people. This is a very important nuance. "

About NGOs in Armenia:

“They were created at a time when no one in Russia doubted the pro-Russian aspirations of the Armenian government. All these organizations were created during the time of Robert Kocharian, the time of Serzh Sargsyan. If they were so pro-Russian, why didn't they close these organizations? "

Beautiful words about their own innocence to what is happening in Armenia. And the cover of their own policy in the name of the people. But, as it seems to me, this is a denial of the “Armenianness” of the same Simonyan. She seems to be no longer a real Armenian. As well as those who today see where they are pushing Armenia. Probably, this can explain the ban on including "Russian Armenians" in the Armenian government. Infected with "pro-Russian" Armenians in the modern political culture of Armenia are "unformat".

About the Russian military base in Armenia


As the main oppositionist in Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan actively opposed the presence of the Russian army on Armenian soil. But after some time, the Prime Minister of Armenia somehow began to hush up this topic. True, there were some hints in interviews as to why the question of the base is not yet acute. The military base was and is one of the arguments that plays an important role in gas prices and other economic disputes.

But if we proceed from the fact that Nikol Pashinyan's government practically fell under American influence, as I wrote about above, then the Russian military base should be withdrawn from Armenia. Russia's influence in the South Caucasus must be completely eliminated, which will destabilize the region and ultimately bring it under American control.

What are these statements based on? The usual analysis of what is in Armenia today. Armenia is so huge that the US Embassy in this country is the second largest! Let me remind you that the first one is in Iraq. About 2500 people work daily for the benefit of the United States in this country. Moreover, according to Armenian journalists, from 1200 to 1400 employees of the embassy are representatives of the US special services and special forces.

Why do Americans need such a powerful military fist in Yerevan? Maybe in order to protect the three secret biological laboratories, which were built with the money of the Pentagon, but supposedly belong to Armenia? Or maybe in order to serve the new center for training peacekeepers, the agreement on the construction of which was signed between Yerevan and the Pentagon last year? So there will be its own builders and military personnel who will deal only with this center. Let's just call a spade a spade: the new US military base.

Why didn't the war in Karabakh come as a surprise to most of the leading countries of the world today? Simply because the USA needed it. Note, not Turkey, Azerbaijan or Armenia, but the United States. And the goal, the global goal of this policy, is not Russia, but Iran. In the Caucasus, a cordon sanitaire has practically been created, which separates Russia from this region. Only one link is missing - Armenia.

And the fate of Karabakh? Alas, the Armenian or Azerbaijani people will not see him (according to American plans) as their ears. The Americans need a foothold to deploy their forces in the region. Karabakh is an ideal springboard. And the "sanitary belt" and ally Turkey is an equipped transport corridor.

We often talk about the incomprehensible actions of Armenia at the sites of the CSTO, the CIS, the EAEU. We are surprised at the counterproductive and sometimes hostile actions of Nikol Pashinyan's government. And why? All according to plan! NGOs work in Armenia. I will again quote from last year's article by Suren Ionesyan:

“The current government of Armenia employs employees of Western NGOs: Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia Tigran Avinyan, Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructures Suren Papikyan, Minister of High-Tech Industry Hakob Arshakyan, Minister of Health Arsen Torosyan, Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports Arayik Harutyunyan (LGBT lobbyist community in Armenia), Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Earuhi Batoyan, Minister of Justice Rustam Badasyan, Minister of Environment Eric Grigoryan, Chief of Staff of the Government of Armenia Eduard Aghajanyan, Secretary of the Security Council of Armenia Armen Grigoryan, Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Ararat Mirzoyan, Vice-Speaker of Parliament Alen Simonyan , Deputy Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Lena Nazaryan, Head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Armenian Parliament Ruben Rubinyan and many others.

Today Moscow is outplaying the Americans, and therefore Pashinyan, in the situation of the war in Karabakh. Instead of causing the hatred of the Armenian people by their participation or non-participation in this war, the Russian military today became the guarantor of the preservation of peace on the territory of Armenia. The guarantor of the preservation of the Armenian state as such.

Pashinyan's actions, which I mentioned in passing in my analysis of the war, fit perfectly into the American concept of the future structure of the region. Armenia will deplete its human and material resources. Ultimately, he will end the war on the terms of the enemy. The economy will be undermined for many years. The fact that Russia will undertake the restoration of the country under the Pashinyan regime is rather doubtful.

Pashinyan has become a threat to Armenia


I am sincerely sorry for the Armenian prime minister. The head of state, who is entangled in his own intrigues and is now afraid of everyone around, really deserves pity. But, on the other hand, I remember the beginning of the work of the winners of the "revolution of reconciliation" in 2018.

Remember the wave of repression that swept the country after Pashinyan came to power? Do you remember how they dealt with those who opposed LGBT people and spoke about the traditional values ​​of the Armenian people? How did they deal with those who advocated the pro-Russian vector of foreign policy? How was the second President of Armenia Robert Kocharian, mentioned by Margarita Simonyan, repressed?

And why does it not threaten Pashinyan now? Didn't he allow pressure on the judicial system of Armenia? Was it not at his behest that the power structures switched to rather legally dubious actions to fabricate criminal cases and forceful actions in relation to political opponents?

Today few people remember the famous case of the Amulsar gold deposit. The development of this field threatened an ecological disaster for the whole of Armenia. And the decision to shut down the enterprise was made. What about today? Nikol Pashinyan gives permission for the reactivation of the field by a representative of companies associated with the same George Soros. Will Western developers pay more attention to environmental safety issues than local residents? ..

Echoes of War


I thought for a long time about whether it is worth remembering the recent embarrassment associated with the Great Patriotic War and Prime Minister Pashinyan. I had doubts about whether I would offend the memory of those almost 600 thousand Armenians who left to fight for the Soviet Motherland and every second did not return home from the battlefield? Will I not insult the memory of those four marshals and an admiral, about sixty generals, who were born on the Armenian land? 103 heroes of the Soviet Union that Armenia raised, 70 thousand awarded fighters?

But then I remembered about the other side of the war. About the Armenian Legion of the Wehrmacht, numbering up to 30 thousand people, which was led by General Dro, more precisely, Drastamat Kanayan, and which was trained by the SS troops. There is a monument in Yerevan to the Nazi henchman Garegin Nzhdeh (Garegin Yeghishevich Ter-Harutyunyan). Since 1940, he helped the Wehrmacht to form the Armenian battalions. Then he entered the Armenian National Council, formed in Berlin. As a result, he was arrested and ended his days in the Vladimir prison.

On May 8 this year, Nikol Pashinyan posted a photo of his grandfather Nikol Pashinyan on his Facebook page with the signature that he served in the 554th regiment of the 138th rifle division and died as a hero in 1943. But soon, comments began to appear under this photo, the authors of which claimed that Nikol Pashinyan voluntarily served in the SS legion.

The authors referred to the Armenian resource iravunk.com. In turn, the resource referred to the Russian "Memorial" of the RF Ministry of Defense. There, as evidence of Pashinyan's service in the SS Legion, not only archival information is cited, but also photographs of documents from the German card index, confirming that Pashinyan's grandfather was an SS legionnaire.

They tried to hush up the scandal. A version was put forward that two Pashinyans went to the front at once, who died in 1943. But one was a Soviet soldier, the other a traitor. I don't want to stir up the past. I think that the grandson is not responsible for his grandfather. But according to materials stored in the archives of the Ijevan district military registration and enlistment office, at that time only one Pashinyan lived in Yenokovan (Nikol Pashinyan's small homeland) - Nikolai Vartanovich, an accomplice of Nazi Germany.

Conclusion


About how Armenia is turning into a completely unknown country for us, how Armenia is going the same path that Ukraine went through, we can talk for a long time and give a lot of examples from modern life. Sometimes it seems to me that if today we swap Nikol Pashinyan and Vladimir Zelensky, neither Armenians nor Ukrainians will notice the substitution. Exactly the same eccentric antics! Do you remember the demand of the Ukrainian president to fire the heads of four customs offices? This famous monologue:

“It seems to me, men, we speak like men, right? Please tell me if you can't stop the smuggling, why don't you quit? I just have this question. I'm not saying that you take bribes. You are decent honest people, I guess I think so. Ay Hope, as they say. If you can't stop it, why are you working there? "

After all, something similar happened in Yerevan. Remember the Prime Minister's anger when he saw the dirty flag at customs?

"Fire everyone who is here (in this room)."

To quote radio Azattyk from April 12 last year:

"If it seems to someone that the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia should not defend the flag of the Republic of Armenia, then we have a different understanding of statehood," Pashinyan told reporters at the end of his visit to the Noragavit customs. "

All these movements look pretty disgusting. I have always believed that when a danger arises for the Motherland, people should forget their personal ambitions, self-interest, anger at the country and other personal emotions. You just need to start doing what will save the country. Alas, it turns out this is not the case. One's own shirt is closer to the body ... And for some, personal care is more important than state affairs, than love for one's own Motherland.

So who are you, Nikol Pashinyan? ..

    Always here I am terribly interested, and when there were in power like "pro-Russian" rulers, they did not see the activities of these NGOs and could not slam them, as they did in Hungary ?! Or do they have a type of power like ours, the right hand does not know what the left is doing (economic, financial and social blocs) ?!

      The author is trying to do exactly the same - to find someone to blame for all the troubles, our troubles .. the cold war is over (well, the first one for sure), but the clichés remained ... and Armenia is far from the first and not the most striking example of how a change of power entails a change in vector politics, in relation to our country in particular according to the article .. one can recall the change in US policy and the attitude of their population after the death of one disabled person in the mid-40s of the last century ...
      But the change in mood is primarily associated not with all sorts of demons from America and NGOs, but primarily with our policy ... when the government does nothing to create pro-Russian blocs and parties in the former USSR, but shows its own attitude towards ordinary citizens, when the government supports itself similar to itself. Is it any wonder that people willingly go for cookies to ambassadors from Western countries? To funded or parties, NGOs? They can give at least visa-free travel to the same Ukrainians, but what can we give?

            Many others, who hated the government, could have done so. But the absolute majority went to fight against the fascists. And we won.
            Now there is also a war, but what is called a hybrid. And here, too, a lot depends on whether people will resist or, because of their dissatisfaction with the authorities, they will overstep into the camp of the enemy and become traitors.

              And also braces, braces, and once again, braces will save us ... And just such a pretentious attitude to victory in the Great Patriotic War is one of the braces ... Memory is good, reverence for heroes too ... But not when this is done for a show (and nothing else comes to mind) when you see how models, singers, non-politicians and other celestials find places on the podium near the mausoleum, but there are no participants in those distant and terrible events ...
              Any system always has its minuses and problems ... There are always pluses and positives ... The first must be eliminated, the second must be developed, and not just rebel, I agree here ... but the common people are not given any of this, even to rebel. ... You know, from the United States we took as a carbon copy not the political system with its counterbalances, not taxation, but stupid broadcasts on TV and the Unified State Exam, from Europe we took not an attitude towards the individual and good roads, but used foreign cars and nuclear waste for processing ....

                My opinion is quite simple. Each nation is worthy of its power.
                A true patriot is one who brings up his children correctly. So that they are well educated and when they come to power do not steal, but really live and act for the good of the people.
                And any revolution, roughly speaking, is a change of some freaks for even worse freaks.

                  And revolutions are different, and when they are led by ideological and well-educated people there is a chance to build a new and worthy society, the main thing is that these leaders should be replaced by people of this very new system on time ...

              I am familiar and very well with the taxation system of Western countries, and the United States in particular ... yes, a person in the United States pays a lot of taxes, but he pays depending on his income! Moreover, the presence of a mortgage, children and much more reduces (!) The amount of taxes paid! Well, the cherry on the cake - Americans directly submit tax returns themselves, which allows the state (in such cases as a pandemic) to provide direct assistance to those in need! There is also no VAT in the states (there is a similar tax, but its size depends on the product) ... you can generally list it for a very long time, but the result is one - the main tax burden on wealthy citizens and business! And yes, ordinary Americans often pay in total less than we do, but get more ... the only "plus" of our taxation system is that you don't need to do anything, they will count what you need and write off ...

        But the change in mood is primarily associated not with all sorts of demons from America and NGOs, but primarily with our policy ... when the government does nothing to create pro-Russian blocs and parties in the former USSR, but shows its own attitude towards ordinary citizens, when the government supports itself similar to itself. Is it any wonder that people willingly go for cookies to ambassadors from Western countries? To funded or parties, NGOs? They can give at least visa-free travel to the same Ukrainians, but what can we give?

        But seriously, the Russian leadership is doing everything as it should. And has a large set of waiting for the collection and analysis of situations.

      There have not been any pro-Russian ones since the collapse of the USSR. Since that time, all the governments of the republics have one goal - to fill their pockets and for this to stay in power for a longer time, and to call their political opponents pro-Russian.

    What does Pashinyan have to do with it? All small countries always choose a suzerain from whom they feed and receive protection. At this stage, Russia, as a suzerain, is not in demand. And this is the result of what the "effective managers" have done to her under the guidance of the "multi-way". So, the emergence of Western-oriented "Pashinyans" in countries that used to follow the mainstream of Russian policy is a completely natural and normal process.

      A little later. It was Georgia that joined in 1801, and only its central part (not only without Abkhazia and Ossetia, but also without the present western and eastern parts). Several years before the annexation of Tbilisi, the Turks and Persians sequentially burned. The Georgians have forgotten about it. We are now occupiers. With Armenia - well, exactly the same story. There are fewer claims to Azerbaijan in this regard. There were formally independent khanates dependent on Persia, which at first passed under the protectorate of Russia. Not without military action. But also - the Azerbaijanis lived better under the Russians than under the Persians - a fact. Well, they seem to remember this a little better than the Armenians and Georgians, that the Russians saved them from complete extermination. It's sickening to even think about all this.

          There was a little confusion of this kind. They meant the events of the late 1801th - early XNUMXth centuries. Armenia had already been almost completely captured by Turkey, the Armenians in Turkey were subjected to strong oppression. In Persia, as far as I can judge, there were relatively few Armenians at that time. And the Turks pressed on Georgia from the west, the Persians from the east. It was the Persians who burned Tbilisi last, as far as I remember. In general, it was more convenient for them to invade central Georgia along the Kura valley than for the Turks, who, however, had by that time captured all of western Georgia, including Racha. Lermontov wrote on fresh tracks about this: "... About the glory of the past, and how depressed by his crown, such and such a tsar, in such and such a year handed over to Russia his people" - an inscription on the wall of the monastery. The Tsar, as far as I remember, Heraclius, although I may be wrong, the year is XNUMX. The events of the XNUMXth century are a completely different story. As for the Azerbaijani origin of Mohammed Reza Pahlavi - thank you, I did not know. I know, of course, that many Azerbaijanis live in northern Iran, and for example, in Tabriz (Tabriz) - again, if I am not mistaken, there are many Azerbaijanis.

        Of course, you didn’t say anything about the complete extermination of Azerbaijanis by the Persians. The Azerbaijanis, like the Persians, the Shiites, did not rebel against Iran. And the Armenians and Georgians rebelled against, respectively, Iran and Turkey, for which they received from the central government. There are 30 million Azerbaijanis living in Iran now. But the fact that the transition to Russia from Iran as a much more developed and progressive country was a boon for the current country of Azerbaijan, I agree as an Azerbaijani

          If this is the answer to me, then there is some mistake. The Persians did not exterminate Azerbaijanis. I didn't write that. As for the central government, Georgia did not completely lose its independence. Territories only. And now - and look Batumi will be given to the Turks. Well, so they are longing. There was the Georgian kingdom, and the Tiflis province became, then the Georgian SSR ... And the Armenians in general have long been a people without a state. Now too lazy to specify exactly when. It was Russia that ultimately granted statehood to the Armenians. The gratitude goes off scale. As for the khanates on the territory of modern Azerbaijan, of course, they were mainly inhabited by Azerbaijanis, but the Persian influence was great. I will repeat for clarity - I did not say a word about the extermination of Azerbaijanis by the Persians. Because he never existed.

      The Holy Scripture says: ".... where your treasure will be, there your heart will also be ..." And where does the Kremlin keep its "treasures"? In Western banks. There, according to Kudrin, they are slowly "growing" and they are "more convenient to use", and if they are stored in Russia, then all these "advantages" are allegedly lost. Moreover, the Central Bank refused to disclose where, in fact, all this is stored and refused to provide documents, according to which it would be clear how much and where and on what conditions is stored from the gold reserves of Russia, citing "state secrets." But this is a secret only from the people of Russia, those who are supposed to in the West know very well how much, where and what and how is kept by Russia. Therefore, they behave so impudently in relation to our country .. If you look at the "state" "wealth". And if you take the "private" - those in power, legislators, high-ranking officials and entrepreneurs from Russia .... then there will be a completely dreary picture ... dreary for ordinary people .... completely depriving any sensible person in Russia of optimism about the "independence" of his country and its "bright" future ... request

      You are asking very correct questions, and Russia has made quite a few mistakes in foreign policy. And this is most likely due to the Western orientation of our elite, i.e. they thought that they had their own for the EU, they had connections there, acquaintances in Germany, France, Italy, real estate ... children study again and then it turned out that those people who manage global processes do not care about the opinion or desires of our elite, for them Russia is an enemy and since 2014 the West has clearly shown its face, they do not care what we do and how, they have a setting and they work according to it. And it is a pity that those people in our leadership did not understand the seriousness of the situation and continued the same policy ... in general, conclusions could already be drawn in 2007 after Putin's speech at the Munich conference, but alas, even the same Peskov calmly drives to rest in the West with my family, I don't understand this) Returning to the situation in Armenia, I agree with you that we do not need to get in there (militarily), because an open war with Azerbaijan and Turkey is not in our interests + the position of the United States in this issue, and whether they are behind Turkey's actions in the region ... if this is so then the goal may not even be NK, but we, i.e. to weaken us with the hands of Turkey + so that we spoil relations with Azerbaijan and many other Muslim countries, so here it is impossible to cut from the shoulder + the situation in the world is now very shaky, everyone is preparing for a big war, and if it starts, it will not start from Nagorno-Karabakh but from Taiwan, so resources are still worth saving.

    Why didn't the war in Karabakh come as a surprise to most of the leading countries of the world today? Simply because the USA needed it. Note, not Turkey, Azerbaijan or Armenia, but the United States. And the goal, the global goal of this policy, is not Russia, but Iran. In the Caucasus, a cordon sanitaire has practically been created, which separates Russia from this region. Only one link is missing - Armenia.


    They constantly say that the American intelligence center in Yerevan is directed against Iran.
    I strongly doubt it. Iran is already sufficiently surrounded by US allies or partners.

    Amenia has always sought to satisfy its interests at the expense of a third party. In this she has experience of thousands of years. Just like the Jews. The Russians, having annexed the land of the Armenians, created a problem for themselves. They did not want to integrate into Russia. They created their own way. In opposition to the tsarist and Soviet government. and having received independence, they do not feel special gratitude. After all, the Russians did not liberate all of Armenia ... and provided little material benefits ... for nothing ...

      Here, far from the whole truth of Russian-Armenian relations is voiced, well, for example, for some reason they “gently bypass” the main reason for the discontent of the Armenians with Russia. Its not unfortunate base in Armenia is the main annoying factor, the Armenians gnash their teeth as soon as they remember how Lenin gave Ataturk large territories of Armenia and in particular the main shrine of Armenia, Mount Arrat ...

        And now a serious analysis instead of the propaganda of the Armenian agitprop.
        1. Did Lenin give Ararat to Turkey? And remind me when Lenin captured Ararat in order to dispose of it
        2. Lenin did not help the Armenians to seize Ararat, as they dreamed, that's another story. Could he? No. And what did the Armenians get for their dreams? That's right, the deportation of the Armenian population from the regions bordering on Russia. There was no deportation in other regions, and then now there are about 50 Armenian schools in Turkey.
        3. Lenin helped Ataturk. It's right. For beautiful eyes? Of course not. Lenin himself needed both weapons and gold, which he gave to Ataturk. This means that Lenin saved something that was very valuable to him. I wonder what? Not Armenia for sure. And what was there next to it interesting?
        4. Nearby were the Baku oil fields, from which the British troops left in March 1920 before the arrival of the Soviet troops at the end of May. If the British and company had quickly defeated Turkey, they would have easily returned to Baku. But this did not happen, because the British troops were killed at Chanakhkala.
        5. What is Baku in 1917? This is 85% of the oil in the USSR (during the war, and even more in 1917.

          The Turks then exchanged interests. They gave Transcaucasia to the Bolsheviks. On April 27, 1920, the 11th Red Army crossed the border of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic, ostensibly to help our fraternal Turkey and then sharply displaced the Musavatists.

    When you read Mr. Staver's articles, you wait at the end of an unusual and strong ending, where a message will be generated, an appeal, or something.
    You wait, you wait, and you can't wait.
    For Staver does not want to formulate this message.

    First of all, it is necessary to understand one, the main question - who needs and needs whom more?
    Either Armenia is vital for Russia, or Russia is necessary for Armenia.
    Is Russia's desire (satisfied) in the form of a military base in Armenia fulfilled? Yes.
    Are our videoconferencing systems present there? Yes.
    Who wanted it? Russia.
    What else did our country want from Armenia?
    So that schools are in Russian language of instruction.
    For the theater to stage performances by Russian and Russian writers.
    For the peoples of the two countries to draw closer and closer. Up to a brotherly embrace.
    But who is interested in this?
    Armenians or Russians?
    I get the impression that no one is asking me or an Armenian in Armenia about this.
    Deciding Yeltsins, Putin, Kocharyans, Pashayans.
    But Staver asks a question and it must be answered.
    Armenia and the Armenian people (if you do not take into account the fact that the current government of Armenia expresses the will of a small share of the Armenian people) today relations with Russia are not a priority.
    Although the largest diaspora lives in Russia, this does not make Russia what it could be - a country that determines the vector of development and movement of that very historical Motherland - Armenia.
    Why doesn't Staver say that ethnic Armenians living in Russia do nothing to stop the drift of Armenia away from Russia?
    We will not consider the barking and squealing of Simonyan, for this lady is subsidized.
    But what have those 3 million Armenians done to cement relations between Russia and Armenia?
    Apart from billions of dollars sent from Russia, nothing else happens.

    But the most important and most important question sounds differently.
    What did the Russian authorities do to change the situation in the opposite direction?
    Absolutely NOTHING!

    And I don’t want to list by me the respected names of representatives of the military professions, and the creative intelligentsia, and scientists, and politicians belonging to the Armenian ethnic group, so as not to stain their bright names and belittle their services both to the Russian Empire and to the USSR.
    I want to conclude my comment with what Staver ended his article with:

    ".... I have always believed that when a danger arises for the Motherland, people should forget personal ambitions, self-interest, anger at the country and other personal emotions. You just need to start doing what will save the country. Alas, it turns out that this is not so. Your shirt closer to the body ... And for some, personal care is more important than state affairs, than love for their own Motherland.

    So who are you, Vladimir Putin? .. "

    This is how the article should have ended, dear administrator.
    Otherwise, everyone is to blame, but you didn't say the main thing.
    You didn’t say that it was Russia who didn’t put her finger on her so that the people in Armenia knew and understood that Russia is a mother who will always feed, warm, save and protect. But she will not forgive betrayal.
    And with this thought, an Armenian child must begin to live, and with this thought any Armenian must leave for another world.
    Until this happens (and this, I'm afraid, will never happen), we will continue to receive spits and kicks from those whom we, Russians, saved with our lives and our blood.

        Your link to the multi-headed dragon reminded me of an anegdote about our home-grown Serpent-Gorynych.
        The second head of this monster wakes up after a cruel drunkenness.
        My head is cracking, there is dry forest and stench in my mouth!
        With longing the head speaks out loud - oh, now to get drunk!
        Then the fourth wakes up and declares that she does not mind, but a third is needed.
        The awakened seventh is ready to become the third.
        But then the first one intervenes in their conversation and says:
        "That's always the way! How to drink, so three of us. And how, then all together!"

        So I'm not entirely sure that multi-headedness is better than single-headedness.
        The responsibility for making a decision should always rest with the individual character.
        The collegiality in working out this or that decision led our country to collapse.
        Nobody was responsible for anything, personally.
        Although...
        Victory has many fathers! Defeat is an orphan!
        Therefore, we live like this.

    Gentlemen, we are again being carried away from our own borders and territories that work for us. Should we take responsibility and spend money on a state that is trying to crawl away from us - stupidly because of one military base on its territory? The guys are doing what we don't like, this is not the first presidency - that kind of hints that Soros has nothing to do with it - this is a CONSCIOUS NATIONALIST LINE aimed at exploiting the contradictions between us and the West, with the extraction of a POSITIVE profit. In other words, they try to drink milk and lick the foam. And we are happy to harness them for the sake of some ostentatious state in our associations and a semblance of foreign policy gloss.
    The author praises about 3 million Armenians on the territory of the Russian Federation - and what is there to be happy about? We have a huge diaspora of people who stand up for their own national state, which is increasingly moving away from us, but at the same time participate in transactions to this state, not being the conductors of our political line. Is it okay now?

    I suspect that we are vainly resisting the natural processes of leaving a number of states in our sphere of influence:
    1) firstly, the benefits of these states from the point of view of our real security are doubtful. Their Armed Forces are often unable to defend their own borders, and the peculiarities of the politicum do not allow us to unequivocally assert that the allied obligations will remain in the period necessary for the US (or will be fulfilled at all)
    2) Over the years, a number of states have become addicted to playing on our line of confrontation with the West, deriving personal benefits and flexibly bypassing what is important to us.
    3) Economically, we could not / did not want to rigidly crush the markets of these states, using strong political levers (while we had them). We deliberately gave them too much freedom, which predictably led to nationalism and the fall of our influence in their markets in a competitive struggle (often supported by the enemy lobby).

    The subordination of the surrounding states - regardless of what we LIKE to call them (fraternal, allied, etc.) - is a matter of tough and growing economic ties. First comes the economy - then security, then culture, and only then politics. We have mixed everything upside down, and we are surprised now that our structures are fragile and economically weak, that all these revolutions happen and we are "thrown".
    The reasons are not in Soros - the reasons are in the absence of sober pragmatism and a tough, practical plan in our foreign policy.

      It is doubtful, but the problem here is not even in Russia. And the fact that the elites of now independent states do not want to lose power and look more at the West or the East, depending on who offers more ... the elites have no interest in strengthening integration processes with Russia, and in general, relations between Russia I would not call the CIS countries healthy friendly, i.e. they are built like this: you (Russia) give us cheap discounts, benefits, loans + energy resources at low prices, and we, in return, will keep good relations with you. If you don’t, then everything will go to the EU or to China.

    It's already tiresome, after all. They remembered the "kind and wise Armenian people", etc. etc. Why is this again? We've got capitalism here! What does Russia offer to the Armenian elites (who alone have a real voice in the political process)? Plunder your people under the guise of democracy. As everybody. As is customary under capitalism. What does Soros and America offer? Yes, the same!
    That's just, as a CIA agent said in one of the Bond films - I'm not poor. And not greedy. That is, it is more profitable to rob your people in the company of soros and Americans specifically! More convenient! This topic does not arise about the "good people" to whom someone owes something!
    Russians! You, who have already ceased to call themselves Russians, camouflaged as "dear Russians", you yourself offered us all this and sniffed it, without asking us! The "post-Soviet space" tells us quite logically. What are you whining now? It is much more profitable to deal with America in terms of plundering your people and selling your country to the Americans! What did you want that ?! We are being abandoned because we ourselves have created this situation by abandoning our path. Of course, everyone turned their backs on us, nothing else can be.

    Armenia was slowly but surely moving towards its multi-vector approach, or rather, moving away from Russia, from the CSTO. Why Armenia decided that the West will help in securing the occupied lands of Azerbaijan for it is a miscalculation, beyond the hope of its diasporas in the West and that the West badly needs Armenia as an ally. Constant territorial claims of Armenians at the level of diasporas in Georgia, Azerbaijan, claims of Armenia itself against Turkey, not quite empty statement about squeezing Russians out of Krasnodar, Stavropol Territories and Rostov Oblast strains the authorities of these countries.
    And the burning of Russian flags, Russian slogans - the occupiers are already crossing the red line. Russia just needs to reduce the influence of the Armenian diaspora in the economy, politics, the media and in the power structures, they practically do not assimilate and are pursuing a policy of destroying Russia.

He actively rages on the streets, while the silent majority, which voted and considers the deal done at home, watches TV. And on a wave of buza, the crowd puts their chieftain instead of the constitutionally winning candidate. Among them is the Armenian Pashinyan.

    “Russia should understand that Russia's ally in Armenia is not Pashinyan, not Petrosyan, not Poghosyan, not Sargsyan, not Kocharyan, the ally and partner is the Armenian people. This is a very important nuance. "

    That is, logically speaking, the following shit comes out: The enemies of Russia are Pashinyan, Petrosyan, Poghosyan, Sargsyan, Kocharyan. I will not say about Petrosyan, he works there in his wives and property first, but Pashinyan should not have been mixed with shit. Today it stinks from him.

    An ordinary sorovskaya abomination. And even a portrait resemblance.

    The consequences of all the zakordonny troubles of Russia have one essential and incomprehensible to the people result: the inner unbalanced structure of life for themselves. And here is a bold question: what is it for, why is this motive ??? If the output is one hemorrhoids! Each victory should bring joy and pride in any form! And not just cripples, widows and street children.

    The most paradoxical thing is that Armenia will not benefit from a turn to the West (from the word at all), as, for example, Ukraine did not win. A very serious conflict with the Russians is needed and the Armenians become the spearhead of the struggle! And from this falls the economy, social, the well-being of everyone. For Armenia, a campaign to the West means a country ravaged by conflict (internal, external, military, internal political).

    Reduce the Armenian diaspora by any means three or four times. To persecute Armenian businesses, including those registered with dummies. Prohibit money transfers in any direction. Make people invest in Russia. Prohibit granting Russian citizenship, including to newborns. For any violation of the law: suitcase, train station, historical homeland. These rhinos only understand strength.

    And where did the author get the idea that Pashinyan is an anti-Russian politician? Closed Russian channels? And in Russia, who looks at them? Guano is guano. Pashinyan is a real-life politician, it was necessary to work with him, and not to get into trouble ... His predecessor was absolutely no better! The main and only fault of Pashinyan is that he, a slave and a cattle, dared to overthrow the local celestial! This is not forgiven. And now a war broke out in the Caucasus, which in any case bears damage to Russia, and which we could have prevented. Well, we taught the Armenians a lesson, because they overthrew their corrupt official, they will no longer love us, it's just that both Armenia and Azerbaijan turned their backs on us forever.

    Good article, I also think that every nation is worthy of its "leader", and he was chosen by the street. You can't shed the blood of our children for those who betrayed us, God will not forgive. Armenians need to cleanse themselves of the euphoria of Armenia’s vilikoderznosti, and think about how to survive and not die from wounds, diseases and hunger.

    Pashinyan, pashinyan. Pashinyan is not a reason, it is a consequence. The consequence of the fact that the majority, which is already sick at the word democracy, remains in passive. With words, we do not have time to express our will, we work, they thereby allow a minority-asset, to control their opinion. They, this liabilities, allow their kids, who haven’t done a damn thing in life, haven’t paid a penny of taxes, to shake (this is a quote) power, to hold a meeting, to protest. Let our juvenile bums protest, we are working. And then, only later, after the flourishing of democracy, the establishment of the power of freedom, after fair elections, groans begin: We were deceived! We thought that it would be good, but it became not good. So who's to blame? Youthful sluts who, instead of studying (for which they don't pay, for a minute), dedicated themselves to protests, or their dad and mom, who let them do it?

    "Who are you, Nikol Pashinyan?"
    Who are you, Vafler Pashinyan? Selling your country to Soros?
