Does Armenia have a chance to maintain its positions in Karabakh: current alignment and likely prospects

230

The armed conflict in Transcaucasia continues for over a month. At the moment, the Azerbaijani army has seriously advanced in the conflict zone. Does Armenia have a chance to retain its positions in Karabakh, or will it be taken by Azerbaijani troops?


By itself, the success of the Azerbaijani army, which was achieved not without direct military assistance to Turkey, is not yet a XNUMX% guarantee of a change in the real situation in Nagorno-Karabakh.

But the chances of the Armenian army to defend the region are rapidly decreasing. This is the situation today. The Azerbaijanis reached the strategically important city of Shusha (Shushi), the capture of which could mark the complete defeat of the Armenian troops. At least, this version is expressed by the former Minister of Defense of the Donetsk People's Republic Igor Strelkov (Girkin).

To date, the Armenian troops have lost dozens of settlements in the territories adjacent to the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. This and several cities, including Zangilan, Fizuli, Gubadli.

What about the prospects?


The offensive of the Azerbaijani army on the Lachin-Shusha highway will lead to the impossibility of supplying the belligerent units, and therefore to the retreat of the Armenian troops from Karabakh or their destruction by the advancing Azerbaijani troops. There is no doubt that the Armenians will fight to the last, but the forces are too unequal, and this is recognized by many military experts.

Now Armenia has two chances to get out of the conflict without losing Karabakh with a subsequent humanitarian disaster. The first chance is if a "miracle" happens, and Moscow nevertheless decides to openly intervene in the conflict in Transcaucasia, providing if not military support to Armenia, then at least sending a peacekeeping contingent to Karabakh. However, so far the Russian authorities have not made such a decision. Moreover, Vladimir Putin spoke about a compromise option and the possible transfer of 7 regions to Azerbaijan as a way to end the conflict, which is in line with the previously signed agreements between Yerevan and Baku.

The second chance is for Armenia to start an all-out war against Azerbaijan, including, among other things, strikes on the republic's oil facilities. But Armenia is unlikely to dare to such a scenario, and Nikol Pashinyan is not the leader who would make such decisions. In addition, Russia will in every possible way prevent the start of an even larger-scale war between Armenia and Azerbaijan and its exit from the borders of Karabakh. After all, the Armenian-Azerbaijani war outside of Karabakh is a guaranteed intervention by Turkey, the invasion of the troops of the Turkish-Azerbaijani coalition into Armenia itself, and then Russia will have to provide assistance to Yerevan as an ally in the CSTO.

No matter how high the fighting spirit of the Armenian people is, no matter how many recruits and volunteers are sent to the Karabakh front, the advantages in manpower and equipment are on the side of Azerbaijan. After all, now it is the Azerbaijani aviation dominates the airspace, and Turkish-made Bayraktar drones destroyed a significant part of Armenian military equipment.

The most impressive losses of the Armenian side in armored vehicles - destroyed, apparently, half of all Armenian tanks, half of self-propelled artillery installations, 67 multiple launch rocket systems. The losses of the Azerbaijani army in equipment and personnel are also very large, but inferior to the Armenian losses due to the dominance of Azerbaijan in the air.

If Azerbaijan seizes Karabakh, the existing balance of power in the region will seriously change. The role of Turkey in the Transcaucasian politics will become more significant, and at times, and the positions of Russia will weaken. But the saddest thing is what awaits the Armenian population of the region. It is unlikely that most of the Karabakh Armenians will want to live as part of Azerbaijan, and this only means that a guerrilla war, ethnic cleansing, an exodus of refugees will become inevitable - with the ensuing humanitarian problems for Yerevan and a desire for revenge.

    Without military assistance from outside, without additional equipment ranging from air defense to MLRS, without additional people, it will be problematic to keep it.

        If Armenia becomes an aggressor and strikes, for example, on the Azerbaijani oil infrastructure, Russia will not be obliged to help Armenia, because within the framework of the CSTO assistance is provided to victims of aggression, and not to the aggressors, who in this case will be Armenia. In any case, I am opposed to Russia fighting for Armenia, let them deal with Azerbaijan themselves, especially since the dispute is over territories that Armenia itself does not recognize as its land.

          Igor, you are well aware of the role of oil corporations and their influence on the political arena of the countries of the world. If the Armenians do such a stupid thing, which means flattery in the pockets of the oil companies and, most importantly, on BP, we will just have to sit and watch the show what Britain will do to the Armenians.

There is an agreement between the Russian Federation and Armenia on mutual military assistance until 2044, so that the CSTO did not surrender to the Armenians for nothing (you cannot take anything from it except for analyzes), Armenia will seek military assistance directly from the Russian Federation, within the framework of bilateral agreements .. ..

          Let's turn on the logic. Azerbaijani soldiers found two old men abandoned without food. Could finish off on the spot and ends in water. Who would prove what? But we are not barbarians, the soldiers dragged them on our backs to the car and handed them over to the Red Cross, which the grandmother handed over to the Armenians. The old man was not transportable and died in the hands of the Red Cross. Ask them. The poor Armenians pressed the old woman, so she is lying.
          It's funny, by God, any Armenian lie is taken on faith; Azerbaijanis have to prove all the time. But thanks for the science anyway,

      Once they did not want to live peacefully.
      When they declared Karabakh the territory of the Armenian SSR in 1989, expelled all Azerbaijanis from Armenia and began to form militant detachments, seizing weapons from militiamen, from DOSAF warehouses and attacking military units ... they proudly declared that the entire Armenian diaspora would support them, listed how many millionaires and billionaires Armenians live in the United States and France, counting on their help.
      Where is this help?
      When, back in 1985, in the squares of Yerevan, they publicly burned Soviet passports and were the first, together with the Baltic states, to shake the Union into disintegration ... When recently they came out with posters "Russian invaders get out of Armenia" ... They were so proud and self-confident. ..
      If they are so confident in themselves, if their diaspora is so rich and influential, if between peace and war they always choose war - Fight!
      It's your right .
      ... When in January 1990 the rebellion in Azerbaijan was suppressed (caused by the expulsion of Azerbaijanis from Armenia and the declared annexation of Karabakh), but at the same time Gorbachev with his camarilla did not touch his finger to pacify the enraged Armenia ... we are Soviet officers those serving in Azerbaijan were very much surprised at such selectivity ... After all, attacks on weapons depots, police departments and military units (usually separate small units) in Armenia began earlier than the mutiny with an attempted coup in Azerbaijan.
      As it turned out, Gracheva was simply bought.
      Those same Armenians from the Diaspora.
      And how decisively and quickly the rebellion was suppressed in Azerbaijan, just as decisively the Gorbachev government forgave ALL the antics of the enraged Dashnaks of Armenia.

      I hope this time the Karabakh issue will be closed.
      And finally closed.
      Just for the sake of historical justice.

    For five weeks, not even the army, but the "advanced" militia, is holding the army, which was taught by instructors from NATO, the operation was planned by Turkish generals, and supplied with quite modern and effective weapons and military equipment. And Aliyev's today's appeal to Russia means that the cost of this war has already exceeded all reasonable limits for Azerbaijan, and the end of the war is still far away.

              And at the same time, the guys will have to make a fire, which the drones will be very noticeable especially at night as the heat of bodies and the heat from the running or running engines - the drones will simply lower it lower or, for the most part, ordinary mini reconnaissance officers will start using the Harop type, it can be in the air for 6 hours and it is very problematic to shoot it down, just as they will notice, they will simply direct and process artillery at the detected positions and process square by square - for this, Azerbaijanis do not need to sit on bare rocks.

        The analyte brains turn into minced meat. No, not yours. And like Yurassuma or Podolyaki - these are Russian-patriotic ones. They broadcast about the capture of the Red Bazaar and Kubatly 10 days ago. But Krasny Bazar and Kubatly quietly fought back. And - silence.

          The fact that Azerbaijan Red Bazaar Shusha Stepanakert and all towns and villages as well as the whole of Karabakh will take over sooner or later, in the current situation, does not cause any doubts, and those who defend it will become the very minced meat that artillery and aviation will make of them - in view of imminent exhaustion all equipment from the Armenians. And at the expense of the recaptured Kubatls, you’re completely hungry, since the Armenians have nothing to beat back in fact today in a tank attack that was a pure suicide, tanks drones gouged and all this offensive was covered with a copper basin and such attacks in Karabakh will all end in the same way.

        If Azerbaijan wins a military victory over the militia, it will be a "Pyrrhic victory". The war will not end, it will pass into other forms. But why would Azerbaijan need a piece of land with destroyed villages, cities and infrastructure? Nobody wants to live there anyway.

          There is not a militia, but the NKR army, which is more than a quarter (!) Century. And the army of Armenia. Two armies of two states.
          ... When the Red Army was of this age, she beat the army of the Third Reich in the tail and in the mane. But then the Union would be a sensible PROLETARIAN state of the Russian (and other indigenous peoples, but without Russians - nowhere, they are a STATE FORMING nation ...) of the people, the state of the ,, red emperor ,, Stalin.
          Frivolous states cannot have a serious army! This is what the next war in the post-Soviet space is about once again, to r and h and t. ,, Soap bubbles ,,, ,, balloons ,,, not the state ... All these ,, PMRs ,,, ,, LDNRs ,, ,, ,, NKR ,, ... How can you be responsible for the state building of all, for example 5 years old? ONLY five years. What is this satanic nonsense? Who needs a family head FOR FIVE YEARS? Is it possible to steer the state for just five years? This nonsense is imposed on people by Satanists - ,, ordinary inhumans ,, (convenient and sensible in meaning - ,, ufo ,,). They don't care about the flag under which they are performing. They can be “red”, and “brown”, and “blue”, and “democrats”, and “conservatives” .. Servants of not mythical Darkness at all. Dreamers of world domination. Mediocre and dull, but cunning and aggressive.
          Armenia and Artsakh need a tsar, a real one, Khrist, and not a temporary worker - a "democrat", for an Armenian he should.
          “A large diaspora,” could seriously attend to this. Or else, let's play with life? Little did you sleep, little defeats, little nibble on the crown of the roast cock?
          If Russia, too, while ,, sleeps on the move ,, (there are such periods in its history, what can you do ...), then you need to move yourself, - to build your PRESENT state. Who will have a REAL army. There is no need to look back at the stupid West or the stupid East. Not for them (for now), but for you to look into the eyes of refugees, not for them, but for you to burn in tanks, not for them, but for you to hide in basements and dugouts

          The fact that they are allies in the CSTO is yes, but this does not mean that the Russian Federation should fight for the Armenians on foreign territory.
          For reference, Nagorno-Karabakh is not the territory of Armenia. Nagorno-Karabakh is not a recognized republic, even the Armenians did not recognize it.
          Nagorno-Karabakh is the territory of Azerbaijan.
          Apart from its army and navy, Russia has no friends, only partners.

              There is a video of the interrogation of two Syrians. Don't be lazy, everything is on the net.

    The policy is not so unambiguous under EBN. Yes, it was possible to bring peacekeepers to Abkhazia and South Ossetia. They supported the elder Aliyev when he overthrew the nationalists, but they did not go further, they were not particularly friendly. Azerbaijan kept Russia at a distance. Supported Shevardnadze, and he then The fig showed. Armenia, extorted funds for a military base in Armenia. They believed and still believe that Armenia is very necessary to Russia. Yes, what can I say. The Caucasus, wasted back in the 90s, but what is happening now. the consequences of those years that cannot be corrected. You cannot make a genius out of mediocrity.

      Nevertheless, the bottom line is that there will be no peace-gum now either with Armenia, or with Azerbaijan, or with Georgia. The entire Caucasus goes to the other side.

      And ignoring the current situation only reinforces Russia as a weak side that does not solve anything, and contracts with it are dirty paper. Zugzwang.

          I will answer this question. In Russia, the birth rate is lower than the death rate, which means that you need migrant workers. We will end - the former republics, which you taught your language and culture for 200 years, there will be either a catastrophic shortage of workers, or the Chinese. The Russian government is well aware of this. When the outflow of migrants began with the pandemic, the Russian government announced the issuance of 1 million passports to migrants. This is a mutually beneficial process.

        Azerbaijan, at least, did not pretend to be a friend and ally, did not hang noodles on the ears of the Russian Federation, but built a balanced policy towards the Russian Federation, and they certainly do not consider us enemies.
        At least YET!
        State radio in Azerbaijan broadcasts 20 minutes a week in Talysh, Kurdish and Lezgin, about 40 minutes in Georgian and Armenian, and 15 hours a month in Russian.
        Teaching in Russian is conducted in 325 primary and secondary schools in the country, while the number of children studying Russian has increased by 2011% since 16, to 104. Another 288 university students study in Russian-language faculties. Teaching in the Georgian language is conducted in ten schools, although in 17 there were 000 such schools.

        I agree with you. Azerbaijan is pursuing quite an adequate policy towards Russia, in contrast to the Armenian leadership. I disagree on another point in another. The majority of Russians do not sympathize with Armenians. Especially after the next high-profile murder of a single father in Volgograd with an excessively hot hach_ik, who got mad at the instigation of his sister and wife, who were de-insulted in the parental chat. The correspondence is also published. Here is the most eloquent response to the publication: “The Armenians, if I were you, would have executed him themselves, you do not understand that after the incident when a special forces soldier (who fought, unlike you, who was fattening in Moscow) with ISIS in Syria, now it is-- and this is at the time when ISIS came to your land - do you think the Russians are now eager to defend Armenia and Karabakh? " I subscribe to every word.

I would say who you are, both Armenians and Azerbaijanis, in the words of Lavrov, will be banned. And in his words, it’s true. For 30 years your bourgeois governments have not agreed, nooo, not at the expense of Karabakh, but how to live together. Amicably, without wars. You are ready, each other, to gnaw each other's throats. Moreover, neither the Armenian and Azerbaijani billionaires and millionaires, but ordinary people on both sides.

          This is a key turning point in the history of both countries, which many have not yet realized. Russia and Turkey were historical enemies, but both countries have their own interests in the first place. And history should not be allowed to overshadow current interests. Bulgaria was a historical friend of Russia and how did it end? She fled at the first opportunity to Europe. And these interests dictate today the need to unite Turkey and Russia against the West. It is enough to listen to the speech of Mr. Putin at the meeting of the Valdai Club. And small Azerbaijan is a bridge in this union.

        Most do not care, we have a long-standing interethnic conflict between Armenians and Azerbaijanis and we Russians simply do not want to participate in it. And there are many reasons for this. The most frequent proposal in the virtual world is to send all Armenians and Azerbaijanis to Karabakh.

        So you don’t need to hug or kiss us, you and the Armenians arranged this with the collapse of the USSR for you and only for you to disentangle it.

    This is the first time I hear that the self-proclaimed and (!) Unrecognized territory of Karabakh is Russia's allies.
    According to all international standards, this is the territory of Azerbaijan.
    The Armenians of Karabakh and the Armenians of Armenia unleashed a war and seized these territories. These territories are now being returned to their legal jurisdiction by force of arms.
    Why by force of arms?
    Because 30 years of negotiations and admonitions did not help, and now armed impostors and guest performers from Armenia are asked to leave.
    Weapons.
    Armenia wanted a foreign land ... and now her sons are interfered with with this very land.

        By all international standards, we are citizens of the Soviet Union, which to this day is the founder (co-founder) of the UN. Ukraine has NOT DEMORCED ITS BORDERS, it is generally de jure a state without borders, which means this is the territory of Russia - as the legal successor of the Soviet Union and RI. Historically, no Ukraine existed. Donetsk and Lugansk regions are generally the historical lands of the Great Don Army. The entire Southeast of the so-called. Ukraine is the historical Novorossia, we have all Russian toponyms - Novomoskovsk, Old Rus, Yekaterinoslav (Dnepropetrovsk), Pavlograd (not at all in honor of the "Cossack PavlA"). And these lands are inhabited almost without exception by immigrants from central Russia - from near Kursk, Orel, Moscow, inhabited empty lands after the annexation. And they never spoke Ukrainian here, except that surzhik and that for charm, in the Kuban, for example, in general, surzhik is scratched - it's just a South Russian dialect.
        And certainly not any jealousy of Karabakh.
        I served in Azerbaijan in my last officer's life - in 1988 - 1991. , so I just caught the beginning of this conflict and remember everything VERY well. Who started, who expelled Azerbaijanis from Armenia - 150 thousand were expelled by the end of 1989, although they mentioned the figure and 200 thousand, but I knew about 150 thousand refugees, the last in winter, through the mountain passes. Many died. Then, at the end of 1989, Armenia announced that henceforth Nagorno-Karabakh was the territory of Armenia and included it in the economic development plan for 1990.
        At the same time, the formation of armed detachments of the Dashnaks began, the seizure of weapons, attacks on military units ... and the Kremlin with Gorbachev at its head did not react to this in any way, on the contrary, it condoned in every possible way.
        And then Azerbaijan exploded. A mutiny began, the first secretary fled to Moscow, on January 11, the rebels seized power in Astara (a city on the border with Iran), on January 13, Baku was captured by the rebels, pogroms of Armenians began, with murders, sometimes just brutal - the crowd is terrible when it goes berserk. This continued until January 20, 1990.
        And at dawn on January 20, an operation to restore constitutional order began. It was headed by Yazov personally. On the same day, Baku was liberated and the establishment of order in the republic began. Tough, well-coordinated, promptly.
        Yes, since January 13, martial law has been declared in Azerbaijan.
        Order was put in place by several airborne divisions, formations of internal troops and even a number of urgently called up reservists. For their operational transfer across Azerbaijan, as well as for organizing the evacuation of the families of military personnel and the Armenian population, 17 (!) Helicopter regiments (42 - 46 helicopters in each) were transferred to Azerbaijan, I personally accompanied these 17 regiments.
        Yes, I served at the RIC (intelligence and information center) of the air defense unit, so I was very well informed about the events that took place.
        And one of my friends for preventing the seizure of weapons in one of our units (a separate radar company in Karabakh - Gindarkh), shown courage, heroism and resourcefulness, was awarded the Order of Courage at number 5.
        I have enough claims to Azerbaijanis for those events. We sheltered Armenian families in our military camps and organized their subsequent evacuation, we slept dressed and with weapons for almost two months, dispersed crowds with anti-aircraft searchlights, incited by provocateurs to seize the weapons depots of the mob-reserve ... I almost took prisoner "the Minister of Defense of the Popular Front of Azerbaijan "and they flew away from us as if with full pants ... under the aim of anti-aircraft searchlights ... my soldiers will not forget this ... We took under the protection of the homes and families of the Russians who lived in Azerbaijan, in order to prevent something bad and their address ...
        There is a lot to remember ...
        And order was restored in the republic.
        And the locals thanked for this, because they themselves had endured a mess ...
        But at the same time, seizure of weapons, arming militants continued in Armenia, they also acquired foreign weapons - Uzi machine guns, plastids, foreign detonators, equipment (they were transferred the day before under the guise of humanitarian aid after the earthquake in Spitak) ... armed gangs appeared and in Karabakh (this is why the Azerbaijanis rushed to arm themselves, at least with hunting rifles) ... And there was no reaction from Moscow, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the KGB ... The Armenians were given complete carte blanche. After putting things in order in Azerbaijan, we intercepted a sabotage group of terrorists who were trying to blow up the oil and gas pipeline going from Azerbaijan to Armenia. Undoubtedly for provocative purposes for further incitement. And this happened already in March.
        And this group of diversionists flew in from Armenia (!) On two Mi-8 helicopters (!!!), which we intercepted with our two Mi-24 duty officers. The detonation was disrupted (they managed to tie the pipes with explosives, but did not manage to connect the detonators, a backpack with detonators was lying around), but the saboteurs managed to retreat to Stepanakert, sat down on the square and fled. It was on my watch and I took part in it.
        And a day later we were ordered ... to forget about this incident ...
        This is how the frenzy of Armenian separatism was nurtured and fed.
        Gorbachev and his camarilla.
        In raging Armenia, no one put things in order.
        ... And in 1994, these Dashnaks captured 7 more districts in addition to the N. Karabakh region ... And they were very proud of their victories ...
        True, Armenia itself after that fell into a blockade from its neighbors, subsidies from the Center stopped long ago, poverty, hunger and cold ... and the Armenians began to scatter rapidly in all directions.
        I know families of such refugees in Donetsk.
        After victories, life was uncomfortable for them at home ...

        And we have a war of a completely different nature.

I will not forget Yazov's report to Gorbachev in the morning of January 20, 1990 (the call was through our communication center and, as everything was recorded) about the "restoration of Soviet Power in Baku) ... and the next day this Judas told reporters from the screen that he "was not even aware of what the Army had done there, I say, I did not give an order and generally was on a trip abroad ..." ... We were just furious with such a hypercynical lie, especially after he had already done a similar thing after the Tbilisi events, blaming everything on General Rodionov ... The record immediately after Yazov's report was ordered to be destroyed, but the person on duty before that had time to play it for us several times.

            So the traitors kindled ethnic conflicts throughout the country, adding kerosene wherever they did. And the Armenians in that process were one of their main instruments, on a par with, and even ahead of the Balts.

          I'm just shocked at your honesty. You're right. It was all that way. I can only add that many Azerbaijanis also hid and took Armenians to the airport. My husband took the neighbors to the airport, and my neighbor bought the Armenian neighbors' apartment and brought it in full in cash to Moscow.

I was worried that my parents would be worried after learning about our events ... and upon arriving on vacation I found out that they did not even suspect what was happening with us ... Despite the fact that my mother was visiting me since 1 until January 5, 1990 and saw the newly burnt Armenian church on Azneft ... In the information space of the Union, there was a complete blockade of all events from the Transcaucasus ... Therefore, people did not remember it.

              And my father and I (was the head of the air defense division in the Salyan barracks) on January 14 went to the cinema in the city center. Near the Baksovet we met a lone explosive patrol in helmets, bulletproof vests and with batons. No weapons. And at home they learned from TV that there were pogroms in the city. Although in the center where we were, nothing said about it.
              It seems to me that the church was set on fire at the end of December 1989, because that day my classmates and I went to the center, we had a Criminal Procedure Code nearby.
              A large crowd surrounded the church. But there was no open fire to be seen. Some smoke poured from the broken windows. The temple itself was outwardly intact.
              On the night of January 19-20, watching the shooting in the Krasny Vostok area, I saw the reflections of searchlights, maybe this is what you were talking about.

                My mother flew to me on January 1 and I decided to show her the city right away, went along Azneft, reached the church, it seemed whole, but went in ... everything was burnt inside, frescoes with black scales, in the middle of the haram (right under the chandelier) a lot of human feces and flocks of Azerbaijani children are scurrying inside ... and a few adults - also to see. We were taken aback then - it looks like everything is whole, and the gate too ...
                In general, I showed my mother Baku.
                And the case with anti-aircraft searchlights was in a different place - 90 km. to the south, there provocateurs led by the "Minister of Defense of the Popular Front of Azerbaijan" came to "negotiate" the transfer of weapons to them from the warehouses of artillery equipment of the mob-reserve ... but the negotiations did not go well and then they drove the entire population of the village with the aim of throwing it into an assault ...
                At our unit there was an airfield of "school aviation" from the Armavir School, to ensure night flights there were anti-aircraft searchlights to illuminate the strip ... It was with these projectors that we dispersed that crowd, in a minute the square was empty, and of course "everyone in rifle "... The provocateurs in five cars rushed to run ... but there the steppe is as flat as a table ... So they took them into the" cross "with two searchlights and led them for five kilometers. The power of the searchlights is brutal, I myself almost went blind - I didn't have time to turn away, but in the dark ... for 10-15 minutes I didn't see anything at all, I thought I was blind, but nothing let go.
                It was then that I almost took this "Minister of Defense" prisoner. When they arrived, I was at the checkpoint and was the first to negotiate with them, well, and then I sent them to the command for negotiations ... But I gave special instructions to the fighters sent with them to escort ... And when they moved away from the checkpoint to 100 meters, behind them the bolt suddenly snapped reliably and the voice of the escorts became harsh and imperious, like a convoy before being shot. And they were delivered to the headquarters in a prepared, psychologically, form ... Well, and only then, when they were sent to the headquarters, they moved to start the crowd.
                And while they were being taken to the headquarters, I was near his armed retinue to control the situation ...
                Fear then my soldiers caught up with the "minister" and his partner ... I specially sent two of the most arrogant ... to bring down arrogance.
                The fighters then, from their reaction to the clang of the shutter, rolled with laughter (but not with them - discipline).

                And the fact that you saw the reflections of the searchlights is most likely the searchlights, or the searchlights on the armored personnel carrier, because the "assault on the city" at dawn began.
                ... Our searchlights WHERE were more powerful.

    Why do you repeat yourself as Armenians, once you write, write the entire list. Thanks not only to Turkish drones, but also to Israeli technology. Also, the Russian MSTA and tanks and Sushki and MLRS Smerch, as well as Iranian shells that Azerbaijan buys. It's not worth adding everything for the good of Turkey.

    Second chance for Armenia to start an all-out war against Azerbaijan

    Than? By whom? How? For slaughter?

    The role of Turkey in the Transcaucasian politics will become more significant, and at times, and the positions of Russia will weaken.

    The author, in my opinion, does not vkurse that Erdogan is constantly in contact with Putin. The author, if you don't know, even Iran has merged Armenia.

      The Armenians are doing very badly.

      So the USSR at 41, too, was not doing very well, and in the first war at the beginning Armenia was losing. I honestly do not know how really important Karabakh is for an ordinary Armenian, if they are all ready to die for it, then there will inevitably be a revenge and retreat of Azerbaijan. Even now, Azerbaijan, with all its weapons and superiority, has lost at least a thousand people, plus the barmaley imported from Syria. The Turkish lira is now making the same steep dive as the ruble and Erdagan's problems are not excluded, and without his support, the situation will be completely different in Karabakh. In terms of moral and strong-willed qualities, the Armenians look stronger than the Azerbaijanis.

      Plus, here Aliyev not so long ago stated that Yerevan is the historical territory of Azerbaijanis and his goal is to take it back, so the little Fuhrer may go too far, according to the good old tradition, to arrange ethnic cleansing.

The Syrian barmaley have already been identified and there is a statement from the heads of the intelligence services of Russia, the United States and a number of European countries.
          Ethnic cleansing, so recently there were Armenian pogroms in Baku and perhaps even those who took part in them or even now participate in hostilities are still alive. But by the way, I think that Karabakh is your Azerbaijani territory, but the reality is that Armenia also considers it its own.
          The fact that the Armenians are stronger as a war is obvious, by the way they still hold on, remove the support of Turkey and Azerbaijan will be forced to retreat.

                And how to call Aliyev a dictator-usurper who, at the suggestion of Erdogan, is waging a war in Karabakh using barmalev from Syria, I have no sympathy for him. By the way, I do not feel any warm feelings for the Armenian side either, the guys were engaged in a Russophobic policy. But if it were a showdown between Armenia and Azerbaijan, then everything would be fine for me in general, but realizing that Erdogan is behind Aliyev's back, I do not exclude further provocations on the Armenian border, strengthening of fundamentalism in Azerbaijan itself, and as a result it will be possible to get a gadyushnik like Idlib, but already close to Russia.

If Azerbaijan takes Karabakh, then in Armenia there will most likely be a change of power, politicians will come, who declare their goal to return Karabakh, they will also invest in the army, modernization, brainwashing of young people about the historicity of Karabakh. This is an endless swing until someone cuts someone to zero or an external force resolves this conflict.

            And in a wonderful future, Armenia will declare war on Azerbaijan? Not sure. I will tell you what will happen to Armenia in the coming years. After the lost war, when refugees rush through them in transit to Russia, the attitude towards Armenians in Russia will worsen even more. The fact that their propaganda programs on Russian TV are already annoying is a fact.
            Armenia is one of the poorest countries in the post-Soviet space. And most of its "modern" weapons were received from Russia either on credit, or for beautiful eyes.
            I don’t think that Armenia will ever rise from its knees, unless, of course, it opens wide the doors of the United States or Russia. But Pashinyan's policy of surrendering Karabakh is precisely designed to make Russia even more hated inside Armenia and the country would have an open road to the EU. For God's sake. Who believes that Russia will lose from this? Russia does not even have common borders with Armenia. The 102nd military unit can be moved to Dagestan.
            But who will lose is Armenia itself. As soon as the last Russian soldier crosses its border in the opposite direction, Armenia will simply be devoured by Turkey, or driven to extreme poverty. And the West will not help anything. As I understand it, Erdogan does not care at all about someone else's opinion.
            And we will somehow live here without a base in Armenia.
            I want to say that there are enough Armenians here in Ufa too. They are not only in Sochi or Krasnodar. As far as I know, there are three times less Azerbaijanis in Bashkortostan. In the South Market near my house, mostly Armenians, by the way, of military age, trade.

After all, we will not intimidate Turkey with one single base. And in the event of a mess with the Turks, the fighters from it will not capture half of Turkey. It seems that we need it not so much for us as for the Armenians themselves, so that the Turks do not come and finally cut out the Armenians, not wanting to butt with Russia. And taking into account the fact that after the war in Karabakh (I think who will be the winner there is already obvious), the power and influence of Turkey in Transcaucasia will be undeniable. In any case, much more powerful than Russian influence.
              This is where the question arises - if we are no longer able to keep Transcaucasia in the sphere of our orbit, then is there any point in holding on to this base. Maybe, indeed, transfer it to the territory of the Russian Federation. Moreover, the Armenians want it so much. And let them then themselves there with the Turks and Azerbaijanis ramming until they lose their pulse.

                That's a very good question. It is obvious that the base in Gyumri DOES NOT PROTECT anything, but itself is an object that requires protection, which is extremely problematic for Russia to provide. The Caucasus was lost for Russia in the 1990s, and there is no need to pass off wishful thinking. In other words, decisions about "leveling the front" were also made in less tragic situations. The meaning is bases - just to shine in front of the Turks. In military terms, this is a weak and far advanced outpost, doomed to be cut out with serious intentions of the enemy. In addition, the Armenians themselves dragged the slogans "go home".

      Transcaucasia generally does not deserve any mediocre or any particularly gifted "Russian policy". The policy should be cold, calculating, and only in the interests of Russia. All the republics of Transcaucasia happily ran out of the USSR, which means that they did not want to have anything to do with Russia, as the basis of the Soviet Union (the fact that the basis for the creation of the union was the RSFSR, I hope, there is no need to remind). Azerbaijan found itself a "Turkish husband", Armenia - an "American boyfriend". Everybody's Free! Cooperation, mutually beneficial - yes. But no more gingerbreads at the expense of the dead Russian non-black earth, as in the union. Basta. Business relationship only.

    There was no local population left there, and so before the war there lived only 50 thousand people, the population of a small microdistrict in the Russian Federation, and now, in general, everyone has left, there are soldiers from Armenia itself from abroad (Lebanon, Syria, etc.).

    Having received guarantees from Russia to defend their own territory, the Armenians concentrated two army corps in the composition of 4 divisions. It is their artillery units that are shelling the corps, which is searching in the direction of Berdzor. The double task of covering the border with Armenia and searching for Berdzor does not allow this corps group to organize a full-fledged offensive. Therefore, she is constantly being derailed to strengthen the military group operating against Shushi. After the capture of Gadrut and Fizuli, the second corps of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces launched actions against Martuni and Shushi. Will this "hodgepodge" team take Shusha? Not sure.
    In the north, the 10th Guards Rifle Division of the NKR is successfully defending - a normal, full-blooded division. As I said, Azebaydjan's lack of Guderians and Ribentropov did not allow to develop an offensive along the border, and the loss of tempo and striking force of the corps in aimless strikes in diverging directions does not allow strikes to be delivered to the required operational depth.
    Taking into account that the Armenians continue to strike at the rear of the Azerbaijani group, I expect a crisis in the offensive operation of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces within the next 10 days. If they fail to take Shusha, then after the expiry of the above-mentioned period, the parties will switch to positional battles. After that, the Armenians tried to perform the maneuver with two corps.

      It is not clear what are the prospects of the Armenians in the defense of Karabakh. So far, the domination of drones has not gone anywhere, on the contrary, more and more examples of the defeat of Armenian equipment and manpower. They seem to have 2 outputs left. The first is to accept the loss of Karabakh. The second is to strike at the dam, oil and gas fields and their structure. This option will lead to an escalation of the conflict with many casualties, but with at least some prospect of more energetic intervention by the United States or Russia. But it can also lead to the capture of Yerevan by Turkish-Azerbaijani troops. I have no doubt that they will choose the first option. Life is more precious. And the blame for the loss of honor can be attributed to others. Russia is the only candidate.

In the murky schemes of Chernomyrdin and Kuchma, who entered the European gas market liberalized by Enron. As soon as Enron went bankrupt (2001), Gazprom immediately started having problems with the Ukrainian transit problems, which resulted in the proposal of Naftogaz (March 2005) to abandon the soviet barter schemes and switch to direct cash settlements.

      Is it okay that the Azerbaijanis are obviously conducting military operations with the condition of squeezing the Armenians out of the occupied territories? “They simply don’t need Armenians there, none of them. This is not about a hasty seizure with the receipt of an occupied population. It's about stripping, albeit by such methods. Therefore, Aliyev does not need any "breakthroughs". Will grind NCR into flour, slowly and surely. And not Guderians in the mountains are required. Essentially, a driven hunt.

        And what is happening at Berdzor - Lachin now? Wasn't it a breakthrough in the south? Compare, please, with the actions of "Swift Heinz" in the Polish company. One to one. Only there Guderian's tanks broke through to the Soviet - Polish border. And with the USSR, Germany had a non-aggression pact - the Ribentrop-Molotov Pact. That is why I write that Azerbaijan does not have its own Guderians and Ribentrop.
        An attempt to block communications in the north (Murovdag) and in the south (Berdzor) suggests that an encirclement operation was envisaged, and not squeezing out the population into Armenia.

I still remember the salaries with chickens and bricks. When we became mature, the Chechen wars broke out, which did not pass by my generation either. In anticipation of an economic miracle, we lived for several more years and waited for our pensions to be postponed for another five years. And it seems like the sixth decade, you can quietly sit at home and babysit your grandchildren - but no, pandemic, damn it.

    Well, actually, Ribbentrop was a diplomat, Foreign Minister) Well, Heinz Guderian was a tank genius, a master of lightning-fast flank raids, one of the authors and a brilliant performer of the German blitzkrieg. He was called "Fast Heinz") True, only at the end of the war did he become chief of the general staff of the ground forces, in a defensive war his genius remained unclaimed, and it was too late. Germany did not have enough resources even for a full-fledged defense.
    What are the fast flanking raids on the Karabakh theater of operations? The Azerbaijani Armed Forces, under constant fire from the territory of Armenia, have to break through to the Lachin corridor along the entire Armenian border. To be honest, the actions are usually regarded as unfeasible due to the impossibility of retaliatory fire (the CSTO factor) to neutralize the firing points of the Armenian Armed Forces located on the territory of Armenia proper. The Azerbaijani Armed Forces are breaking through to Lachin under the hurricane fire of Armenians from the territory of Armenia in an extremely difficult situation, the Armenians can as much as they want, as they want, from where they want to attack the Azerbaijani troops from the territory of Armenia, strike them with art, MLRS and aviation, make raid passes to the territory of Azerbaijan from any point of the border. Or in general, to attack with large forces from its territory possible gaps in the Azerbaijani defense, starting from Zangelan. The Azerbaijani Armed Forces are even theoretically deprived of this opportunity, since they immediately see the Russian flags appearing from nowhere in front of them. This is some kind of duel between two boxers, where one of them is forced to box with one hand, forcing the other hand to be held behind his back. Armenia's behavior is a blatant abuse of membership in the CSTO and Russia's military umbrella. And you say Guderian or Ribbentrop ...

      Excuse me, you didn't know about this when planning the operation? And I didn't write to you about this in September? Now I can give more details - they won't consider it a disclosure. The Armenians had 2 divisions in Karabakh. One 10th mountain rifle, which is now defended in the north, and the 18th motorized rifle - "cropped", of which the 9th MRR was more or less efficient. All the equipment, which was leaning, was withdrawn to Armenia. Otherwise, Pashinyan would not have sat in Yerevan. All your success in the south is due to the fact that 1 division and 1 regiment have dropped against you! The columns destroyed by your UAVs are an attempt to replenish the 18th Mechanized Infantry Division. And an unsuccessful attack by a tank battalion - the introduction of units into battle ... Therefore, there is no camouflage in the 18th, no normal platoon and company commanders, since no one was involved in training and coordination!
      Therefore, I do not really believe in your cartoons, because I know that the equipment of the 18th mechanized infantry division is not there.

The Armenians had 2 divisions in Karabakh. One 10th mountain rifle, which is now defended in the north, and the 18th motorized rifle - "cropped", of which the 9th MRR was more or less efficient. All the equipment, which was leaning, was withdrawn to Armenia. Otherwise, Pashinyan would not have sat in Yerevan. All your success in the south is due to the fact that 1 division and 1 regiment have dropped against you! The columns destroyed by your UAVs are an attempt to replenish the 18th Mechanized Infantry Division. And an unsuccessful attack by a tank battalion - the introduction of units into battle ... Therefore, there is no camouflage in the 18th, no normal platoon and company commanders, since no one was involved in training and coordination!
    Therefore, I do not really believe in your cartoons, because I know that the equipment of the 18th mechanized infantry division is not there.
    Sincerely

    I do not plan operations) Operations are planned by the Azerbaijani General Staff perfectly, everything possible is being done to achieve tangible results even in such seemingly unbearable conditions. We have to fight in conditions that are not dependent on the Azerbaijani Armed Forces. This reality, there is simply nothing else to do. Greenhouse conditions are created for Armenians by their guardians. The task of the Az.VS is to liberate the territories from the occupiers, which they carry out, even despite unequal conditions and all the advantages of the relief, echeloned fortifications created for years, and free weapons. What is also important are the opportunities that the Armenians received using the help of their allies to close the border with Azerbaijan to release all forces from the borders and redirect them to the combat zone in Karabakh, as well as along the entire border from Lachin to Zangelan.

      bayard confused. Azerbaijan voluntarily left the CSTO on the same day as Georgia. The point is that Armenia blocked from 2015 to 2017. Azerbaijan's entry into EurAsEC, in economic cooperation.

    Armenians have zero chances to keep Karabakh:
    - total technical superiority of the enemy;
    - complete domination of the enemy in the air;
    - shooting, as in a shooting range, of any types of ground targets of Armenians;
    - the reluctance of Armenians to start producing air defense systems, KAZ, UAVs and BBs with a video guidance channel themselves.

    The first chance is if a "miracle" happens, and Moscow nevertheless decides to openly intervene in the conflict in Transcaucasia, providing if not military support to Armenia, then at least sending a peacekeeping contingent to Karabakh.

    I propose to send not a peacekeeping contingent to Karabakh, but Girkin himself. The knight's move from Shushi will be ensured and the end of the war.

    The question is not about the peoples. The question is who is the owner of these lands? We can say that these are the peoples who live there. And according to (humanly) it can and will be (right). But you need to know the history. And there will be the answer. 40 Turkish schools in Georgia. Turkish business arrives. There is no point in writing about Baku. Here comes another owner. If the old one did not suit. And everything else is a shake of the air. Not many people know about the Turkish views in the Caucasian republics. There is a slow pace of policy implementation. Young people are invited to work and study. This is not a question of Karabakh or even Armenia. These are far-reaching plans.

    In the 90s, under the "weak" Yeltsin, Russia was ready to defend its interests in Yugoslavia, and in 2020, after 20 years of getting up from its knees and under the "strong leader" Putin, it sluggishly mumbles excuses when one of its last allies is hammered.

    Here's the alignment. There is something to think about.

    In the 90s we were "plugged into every hole." Imperial thinking was still beating over the edge. Now smarter. Now it is already clear that when someone is squeezed, they immediately remember brotherly friendship, good neighborliness and so on. But when they, in their opinion, feel good, they are rushing to Russophobia and such individuals appear as in the photographs with posters "Russia is an occupier, out of (hereinafter is the name of the state)
    Therefore, now we first of all "knock out" the grandmother, how and who treats us, and only then we begin to help ...

    By itself, the success of the Azerbaijani army, which was achieved not without direct military assistance to Turkey, is not yet a XNUMX% guarantee of a change in the real situation in Nagorno-Karabakh.
    DIRECT MILITARY ASSISTANCE would mean the participation of the Turkish army in battles on the side of Azerbaijan and in Karabakh, which is not.
    I read a lot of pro-Azeobaydzhan and pro-Armenian posts, each had different arguments, a lot of information. In fact, neither we, nor Turkey, nor Israel, nor even more so Ukraine and Belarus, and these are the main suppliers of weapons did not give them to Azerbaijan, for everything really paid with hard currency. We, Russia, have delivered more weapons and for large sums than anyone else, the Turks, Turkey, are not even in second place.
    From here:
    The role of Turkey in the Transcaucasian politics will become more significant, and at times, and the positions of Russia will weaken.
    The role of Turkey will not become more significant than it already is in Georgia, and will not become more significant in Azerbaijan than it already is today or yesterday. Our positions will be strengthened if the war in Karabakh leads to a change of power in Armenia and the departure of pro-Western liberals and nationalists from the power structures.
    We also have the opportunity to further improve and strengthen relations with Azerbaijan, if we can still win tenders for the supply of arms after the war. First of all, this concerns the renewal of the Azerbaijani Air Force fleet, the modernization and restoration of some of the equipment.
    But the saddest thing is what awaits the Armenian population of the region. It is unlikely that most of the Karabakh Armenians will want to live as part of Azerbaijan, which only means that a guerrilla war, ethnic cleansing, and an exodus of refugees will become inevitable - with the ensuing humanitarian problems for Yerevan and a desire for revenge.
    There is no and there cannot be any sorrow about this. Let them disperse, the Azerbaijanis left Armenia in due time and not of their own free will, it would be better if the Armenians also leave Azerbaijan for now. So they will sooner eventually come to terms and begin to learn to live together anew, to build business and human relations, and in this for them, one of the help will be the relationship between them in us, in Russia.

    There is no ground for a guerrilla war, even if a part of the Armenian population of Karabakh remains to live in the territory of Azerbaijan.

    The problem of refugees from Karabakh for Yerevan is incomparably smaller in scale than the problem of Baku with refugees from Armenia, Karabakh and the occupied regions around it.

    For revenge, Armenia will simply not have resources, either material or human, for the next quarter of a century. The end of the war will be accompanied by a crisis and an additional outflow of the population, plus losses in the war, and they are already very significant, so Armenia will not have time for revenge in the near future, and it will be better if, including with our participation and support, they demarcate borders with Azerbaijan and will gradually begin to be involved in joint projects, including by us.

    The end of hostilities in Karabakh will not lead to a decrease in tension along the Azerbaijani-Armenian borders, which Azerbaijan can still somehow overcome, but for Armenia this is simply unaffordable and threatens with even greater risks and aggravation of the post-war crisis. you just need to understand the axiom, even if the impossible happens, and Armenia, having changed the course of the war, will again regain all its positions, for example, in 2016 SHE LOST, Armenia has no victory in any outcome. Here we have a huge trump card and leverage. Let me explain.
    At the moment, our border troops are guarding the Armenian-Turkish and Armenian-Iranian borders. We can also take under protection the Azerbaijani-Armenian border with both main Azerbaijan and its exclave Nakhichevan. At the same time, having put pressure on both Azerbaijan and Armenia in order to demarcate the borders, how will the war between these states finally end, but on condition that Azerbaijan opens the transit of goods to Armenia in both directions, first of all, we are talking about railway transport, opening of transit by Armenia cargoes to Nakhichevan also by rail and possibly we will attract Turkey, to open borders with Armenia also from its side. thus, Armenia will be able to receive goods from the Black Sea through Georgia, and from Russia and Central Asia through the territory of Azerbaijan.
    Only the solution of the issue of isolation of Armenia will allow it to get out of the crisis much faster, as well as allow the states, Azerbaijan and Armenia, to start everything by and large from scratch, step by step.

    That is, we have more options than anyone else in the region, and neither Turkey, nor the US, nor the EU have our capabilities. But this is all possible only with a change of power in Armenia and the arrival of constructive forces, otherwise, the maximum of our support is to ensure protection from external aggression.

    Well, in case of pressure on us by non-constructive forces about, for example, the withdrawal of our base, in the absence of border demarcation and constant skirmishes along them, we can agree with Azerbaijan so that our base remains on its territory, as before in the city of Gyumri, to the base. in Armenian Los Armenias, sorry in Los Angeles, we do not pretend. A joke, but there is a hint in it.

    To spit on the front and the situation on it, without solving the blockade issue, almost the entire population will scatter from Armenia, regardless of the outcome of the war, he meant it. So the loss is somewhere in the hands of the Armenians, if the authorities think more pragmatically.

    what Britain will do to the Armenians.


    Britain will arrange genocide more abruptly than the Turks. In terms of cruelty, only the Israelis can compare with the British.
    Armenians, Azerbaijanis need to stop looking back at the opinion of international institutions. Strikes on the capitals, Yerevan and Baku, will turn the tide of the war.
    If thousands of civilians die, the regimes of these countries will have no problems. The main thing is that oil is produced without interruption.
    But apparently both of them have a "guts" to wage total war.
    In any case, one of these weaklings will end his career behind a high fence, on the Rublevo-Uspenskoe highway, like Yanukovych, who refused, on the advice of his older brother, to drown the Maydaun rebels in blood.

    - It is worth considering whether the retention of Karabakh by Armenia will lead to a final solution to the problem, or will it generate new ones?
    - And if the decision has not happened in the past, it will not be in the future ...
    - There are many such conflicts ... Turks and Kurds, Indian-Pakistani-Chinese, Indians and Tamils ​​- nowhere and no one came to peace ... In spite of everything!
    - Whichever side wins, the hot spot remains!
    - And it is also good if one of the parties to the conflict wins, and not the third, but extremely interested, and does not turn Karabakh into an eastern likeness of the former Yugoslavia ...
