US press: Putin used ruse when signing agreement on Karabakh

The fierce war in Nagorno-Karabakh has been replaced by a fragile ceasefire, overseen by well-armed Russian peacekeepers. Russia, which is a provocateur in the Caucasus, is trying on the role of a peacemaker for the first time, write Anton Troyanovsky and Carlotta Goll in an article for the American edition of The New York Times.


The Armenians returning to Nagorno-Karabakh pin their hopes on Russian President Putin, who, in their opinion, has managed to stop the war. However, according to the authors of the article, for the first time, Putin did not use the "iron fist" tactics that he previously used in Georgia and Ukraine, turning them into his implacable enemies.

The iron fist tactics that turned Georgia and Ukraine into bitter enemies of Russia are apparently no longer popular within the Kremlin, which analysts say is increasingly employing a more subtle mixture of soft and hard power.

- the authors say.

In negotiations designed to end the military conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, Putin relied on the threat of Russian military use. At the same time, he sought concessions from both sides of the conflict.

The Russian president used a trick, taking advantage of the moment when the Armenians had already lost most of the territory of Karabakh, and put forward an ultimatum to Aliyev, stating that he would use force if hostilities continued.

On the same night, the rocket - who launched it remained unknown - hit an open area in Azerbaijan, however, without hitting anyone (...) Some suspect that it was actually a signal from Russia

- the authors write.

In addition, the Azerbaijani military accidentally shot down a Russian helicopter, which gave Putin another lever of pressure on Baku. After that, the parties signed an agreement stopping hostilities and allowing the entry of Russian peacekeepers into the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Some experts believe that the conflict has not been resolved, but has been frozen for an indefinite period, at least as long as the Russian peacekeepers are there. On the other hand, the residents of Nagorno-Karabakh pin their hopes on Russia, which significantly strengthens Moscow's position in the Caucasus, which is what Putin was seeking.

    And who was in South Ossetia as peacekeepers?
    Have you already forgotten how the attack on Russian peacekeepers ends?

      What else to take from them? A nation of liars, thieves and robbers! The whole rabble of moral monsters of the West became the ancestor of the United States. What kind of honesty and justice can we expect from them? One can and should expect from them only a blow in the back. Well, all of their attacks have one specific goal - to demonize Russia in the eyes of their population. We have already gone through this.

            We sometimes wonder why the Western man is so stupid and hostile. And here is the usual, ordinary example of "western truth": a catchy Russophobic headline and a text consisting of the crudest and wildest heap of evil lies, in which only words Putin, Nagorno-Karabakh, Russia, the Caucasus, Georgia, Ukraine, the Kremlin, Azerbaijan, Aliyev. If constantly, process daily любые, even the smartest brains with a similar "truth" from all sides, then how much wiser you?

    Sherochka and Masherochka decided to conduct a "deep" analysis of Russia's actions in the Caucasus. They also remembered Georgia, which in 2008 received what it deserved and for some reason Ukraine. But the main thing is that the cunning VVP began to use new tactics. Now you have to adjust your plans. How not to remember the catch phrase from the movie "DMB": "While the enemy is studying the maps, we are changing landscapes."

    It makes no sense to find fault with the words and word formations of this custom opus. It makes sense to note the general trend:
    1. Simplification of the "political analysis" in the foreign press to the level of "white-black" confrontation with the appropriate color for the parties.
    2. Shifting all negative elements to the "black" side without analyzing the causal line, and therefore without looking for solutions, reducing everything to a single denominator "as evil is defeated, so everything will work out."
    3. Refusal of "long-term archiving" which is a direct continuation of item 2 and its immediate component, however, it has its own peculiarity - the need to maintain constant information pressure in relation to any attempts to reformat the current information image of our time and at least a relatively in-depth analysis of what is happening. That is, "what is that is and it has always been."
    In light of this:
    1. There is no effective tool for "soft" victory in this information confrontation due to the disproportionate propaganda apparatus.
    2. Interaction at the expert level is difficult due to the above-mentioned difficulties and the inevitable influence of the created information field on the residents of the expert dialogue. The difficulty is also in the decreasing number of independent experts and the general decline in the level of "interested education" among communities, and on both sides. On our part, however, due to a sound understanding of our potential and possible "crisis solutions", there is a strong desire for dialogue and the achievement of regulatory agreements.
    3. The inevitable intensification of "hysteria" in relation to "revisionist" regimes as violators of already allegedly established world relations (or rather their complete absence) due to the irreversible inertia of the information confrontation path chosen by the West.

    Thus:
    1. It is necessary to support the information display of your point of view and its argumentation (very important!) For the very fact of the possibility of referring to it.
    2. Liberalization of one's own information platform is one of the conditions for the effectiveness and sustainability of one's own information "citadels".
    3.Protection of the interests of the state, citizens, state institutions and corporate interests within our information cluster should not have a cruel suppressive nature, since it will lead to the scholasticization of our point of view, and due to the mismatch of resources of confrontation, to loss and the impossibility of paragraph 1 due to the acquisition of our the point of view of the signs of non-controversial antagonism.

    The iron fist tactics that turned Georgia and Ukraine into bitter enemies of Russia are apparently no longer popular within the Kremlin, which analysts say is increasingly employing a more subtle mixture of soft and hard power.

    - the authors say.

    Complete nonsense, because in Azerbaijan and Armenia there is an extremely small percentage of Russians and, in fact, they are mono-ethnic states, with extremely negative attitudes towards each other, and moreover, they do not love Russia very much. What is the point of Russia taking sides if there are no interests at all in relation to Russian compatriots, as was the case, for example, in Donbass or South Ossetia, where part of the Ossetians live, who were divided with their brothers in North Ossetia. In general, reading the texts of Western analysts, I am no longer surprised at their wretchedness, which is why you rarely see an objective analysis there, at least from the point of view of common sense.

    This is the second news about the American article about Karabakh. As the states burn, that everything ended there. They write that Putin stopped the war. And what else could Aliyev get by continuing to fight? He achieved everything (unless, of course, he planned to fight in Armenia as well). And so, instead of the Armenian partisans, he has Russian peacekeepers on his territory. Not a bad alternative, IMHO.
