Military Review

Assumptions were made about the reason for the change of the commander of the Armenian Border Troops

60

Against the backdrop of ongoing fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenian President Armen Sargsyan dismissed the commander of the country's border troops, Vaghinak Sargsyan. The press service of the President of Armenia reports that instead of Vaghinak Sargsyan, the post of commander of the Border Troops, structurally part of the National Security Service of Armenia, was taken by Arman Malalchyan.


For reference: Vaghinak Sargsyan was the commander of the Border Troops since June 11, 2018. Previously, he worked as a military attaché in the Armenian embassies in China and Russia, then served as the head of the intelligence department of the General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces. From 2017 to June 2018, he commanded a peacekeeping brigade.

An assumption is made about the reasons for the change of command of the Border Troops. Experts suggest that the Armenian president could have taken this step due to the fact that the Azerbaijani troops took control of the border with Iran - in the southern direction of the conflict.

Against this background, it became known about telephone negotiations between the Secretaries of the Security Council of Armenia and Russia. It is noted that during the talks Armen Grigoryan discussed with Nikolai Patrushev the situation on the border of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and Azerbaijan, as well as the destabilizing factor on the part of Turkey.

From the report:

The Secretary of the Security Council of the Republic of Armenia highly appreciated the role of Russia in the settlement of the conflict.

It should be reminded that President Ilham Aliyev recognized the presence of F-16 fighters of the Turkish Air Force in Azerbaijan. Earlier, Aliyev stated that there are no Turkish F-16s in Azerbaijan. According to Aliyev, expressed today, the F-16s were left in Azerbaijan by "Turkish brothers as a moral support" after the joint exercises.


Meanwhile, reports of heavy fighting in the southwestern direction are coming from the NKR.


According to some reports, the Azerbaijani army was able to advance deep into the defense of the Artsakh Armed Forces, approaching the village of Chanakchi, which is just a few kilometers from Shushi.

    the president of Armenia could go due to the fact that the troops of Azerbaijan took control of the border with Iran - in the southern direction of the conflict.
    Yes, Sargsyan had to die, but not let the Azeris go to the border. fool

      Obviously, Pashinyan found a "scapegoat" and a "scapegoat" to hide his own mistakes and inaction in building a modern army on new principles, before he started up in the "interwar period."
      With modern organization and weapons.

      After all, objectively, the border guards of Armenia, even they show miracles of fortitude and heroism, could not resist the attacks of the drones of Azerbaijan, which at a certain moment began to hunt even small groups of infantrymen ...

        And that the Armenian border guards guarding the border of Armenia and Azerbaijan were subjected to fire contact and when drones hunted them?
        If all these are fantasies, then about what staunchness of the Armenian border guards are you writing here?

        on the other hand, we are talking about the border of Azerbaijan and Iran, which was guarded by Armenian border guards for ten years.
        In general, the Azerbaijanis could pay money to the Armenian border guards for this. winked

In general, I did not read the article, I went to read the comments and thought from the photograph that the Azerbaijani general was being discussed, but I looked at you write about the Armenian, and I began to think - what is the difference between some from others?

      Maybe Arayik Harutyunyan (NKR President) or Nikol Pashinyan (Prime Minister of Armenia) And who is Sargsyan now? He holds a purely nominal position.
      Against the backdrop of ongoing fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenian President Armen Sargsyan dismissed Vaghinak Sargsyan, commander of the country's border troops.

      Maybe the name didn't like it. It's too defiant. laughing

        It is very strange, well, very strange - Serzh Sargsyan is a Karabakh activist, who during the union times (being the secretary of NKAO) was not afraid of the party punishment, took an active part in the separation of Karabakh from Azerbaijan. Those. not a timid man.
        Suddenly I gave up in front of some Pashinyan !!!
        The reason?
        Obviously not in Pashinyan and not even in the US Embassy ... most likely in the pressure on him from the Armenian diaspora in the United States, the very same diaspora that provoked the war in Karabakh in the late 80s.
        It was they (who seem to have carried out the order of their American masters) who brought Pashinyan to the prime minister of Armenia.

        While the elite of Armenia will bend in front of their American relatives (who run under the American special services), they will quickly merge this Karabakh.

    I wonder how the Border Guards could hold back the large-scale offensive of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces? No, they certainly could have died there (and most of them most likely died), but they could not stop. Hold up, yes. And then, only in certain areas and for a short time.
    I think it's about intelligence. They blame the lack of data on the concentration and concentration of forces in the border zone.

      It was clear to me then. The Armenian generals understood only now. They shouldn't have hired me as an advisor. It certainly wouldn't have been worse. I wouldn't take it dearly. No more than the cost of 100 tanks and one S-300.

      Stas, you carefully read the article, did you pay attention to what positions he held before becoming the main border guard of Armenia. They took them off for the fact that a person received a salary and the result was soldier's blood.

    The border troops have a slightly different task, and not combined-arms operations - obviously Pashanyan finds the guilty in the wrong place.

    The Armenians are engaged in nonsense in the information space. At first, Harutyunyan, under the cameras, drank coffee from glamorous cups in positions. Then they began to raise their generals in ranks in order to raise the spirit of the army. Pashinyan, who had not yet begun the offensive, proclaimed mega-victorious. Then, in the public domain, the names of the awardees began to be posted. Now the general has been removed, but the border guard! As if it was he who was to blame for the rout in South Karabakh. Posturing is continuous. Azerbaijanis dryly lay out videos from the battles, but announce the occupation of new territories.

    This is again an assumption, but maybe Pashinyan selects people in a more pro-Western vector? Well, the reason is not good luck at the front, that's understandable.
