Russian border guards to be deployed on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border in Syunik region

39

The Ministry of Defense of Armenia reports on the agreements that have been reached with the Russian military department. We are talking about the situation around the provision of a corridor for Azerbaijan to move from the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic to another part of the country. This corridor, as follows from the trilateral agreements of November 9, must pass through the Syunik region of Armenia. In this regard, fears were expressed in the Republic of Armenia that the country could lose this region altogether.


It became known today that border guards of the Russian Federation will be deployed in the Syunik region of Armenia. The information was confirmed by the Armenian Minister of Defense Vagharshak Harutyunyan, who had a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Shoigu in Moscow.

The RA Ministry of Defense refutes earlier statements on the Internet that there is a certain "secret" agreement on the alleged demarcation of the border.

The Armenian department emphasizes that the minister does not have the right (due to his official duties) to sign demarcation agreements. Added that the appearance of Russian border guards on the Syunik section of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border will increase security.

Today it was reported about the visit to Yerevan of the Director of the FSB Alexander Bortnikov. Some Armenian sources reported that Bortnikov arrived at Pashinyan's request specifically to discuss issues related to the security of Armenia's borders. Recall that the border guards of the Russian Federation are part of the FSB of the Russian Federation.

It is known that after his visit to Yerevan, Alexander Bortnikov flew to Baku.

      Well, as an option, we have our influence, our interests in this place, so that all interested parties take these interests into account. This, in my opinion, is the simplest explanation ..

      For some reason it was necessary, already since 1993:
      According to the 1993 law, Russian border guards guard two of Armenia's four borders - the Armenian-Turkish and the Armenian-Iranian. A total of about 400 km (345 - with Turkey - the most important and tightly closed area)

      This is because they strenuously cut each other's heads. Literally. And the twenty-first century is in the yard. We save them from their barbarism. And at the same time we protect ourselves from their very irascible temperament.

        Demand from those who mined these sites. Not only this area, but the whole of Karabakh is mined by the Armenians. And the Azerbaijanis were planting tomatoes at that time. So it's better to step on tomatoes than a mine

        green is what should be transferred to Azerbaijan.
        For the upper green area there was already a conflict with the shooting, the Armenians were ousted from there, but about the lower green area, adjacent to the border of Armenia, something is not particularly heard.

      Or the Armenians were shot down, but Putin asked Aliyev to take it upon himself, so as not to aggravate the already precarious situation in Armenia. Since the West will immediately use this fact to escalate the situation. And Armenia, in turn, signed a surrender 3 hours later, as Putin said once our helicopter was shot down, now guard your border yourself.

        Some kind of outrageous HPP. Is there a point in bringing down the Armenians? Although the alternatively gifted with MANPADS will always be found in any army, this is a very difficult multi-move. Life is usually easier. I remember Stanislavsky.

          Everything happened that night too suspiciously. And when Putin and Aliyev talked on the air, both were too warm to each other. It is noticeable that Aliyev was confident in himself in this conversation, and Putin did not seem offended.

    And why do they have to travel from Nakhichevan to the rest of Azerbaijan through Armenia? There is a good road across Iran along the Araks, which cannot be said about the road on the territory of Armenia (if you do not pay attention to other aspects of relations between Armenians and Azerbaijanis).

      Because. Through Iran,
      1 times cross the border there and back
      2. The passport must be
      3. Various fees have to be paid.
      And through the corridor there will be free movement. No duties, international passports, etc. And the road can be built and a new one is not a problem

      There is one more nuance.
      Turkey has a common border only with Nakhichevan. And it was possible to get from there to the main part of Azerbaijan through Georgia or Iran. And now, actually, directly, because the corridor actually does not belong to Armenia.

        And now, in fact, directly, because the corridor does not actually belong to Armenia.

        Why not? The corridor belonged and will belong to Armenia. The Iranian-Armenian border is guarded by Russian border guards, who will also be responsible for the security of the corridor to Nakhichevan. The location of the corridor in the border zone will minimize the possibility of provocations.
        So getting from Turkey directly, bypassing the border guards of the Russian Federation, is unrealistic, which cannot be said about the route through Georgia.

          that is, Armenia cannot control or restrict traffic there - I meant it
          And Iran at any moment.

            And what about Iran, why did Armenia entrust the protection of the border to the Russians?
            that is, Armenia cannot control or restrict traffic there - I meant it

            Namely, it is problematic with available peaceful means: you cannot catch up a crowd of people in the border zone (controlled by the border guards of the Russian Federation), but not by peaceful means ... - well, you understand!

              There above it is about the fact that there is a corridor through Iran
              It is completely under the control of Iran
              And this corridor bash to bash with a corridor to Karabakh and the Armenians are not controlled

                The road through Iran is a road starting from the Azerbaijani Belyasuvar, through the Iranian Bilesovar along the border to the Iranian and Azerbaijani Julfa in the Nakhichevan Autonomy. Until now, Iran has not shown any inclination to block this route - being under tough sanctions, Iran is unlikely to risk the safety of the northern route, running through Azerbaijan.
                As for the road through Armenia: earlier, along the Iranian border, there was a railway to Nakhichevan with a branch to Iran. On both Azerbaijani sides, it has survived and is working, while the Armenians plundered their plot, including in the occupied territories adjacent to the Iranian border. So I do not think that Armenia will object if the owner of the Armenian railways (a daughter of Russian Railways) builds a new highway and keeps it under its control.

      Firstly:
      Restoration of old, damaged transport
      ties (peoples must get used to and learn to see their neighbors not only through the sight, but also on their own and their territory).
      Second:
      Relying on interdependence - those who risk cutting the communication routes for their neighbors are automatically deprived of their communication routes with their compatriots. Something like this !

    All this will lead to a single state. The end of the USSR began with Karabakh. And from him the reunion will begin. There will be something similar. It remains for Russia to deal with Ukraine and Georgia. It is the matter of time. Three five years.
