Armenian opposition proposes to place a second Russian military base in the country

Russia may place a second military base on the territory of Armenia, which will be located near the border with Azerbaijan. The Armenian opposition made such a proposal.


According to the leader of the Enlightened Armenia party Edmond Marukyan, Armenia should sign a new security agreement with Russia, within the framework of which it will provide for the creation of a second Russian military base in the south of the country in the Syunik region, bordering with Azerbaijan. He stressed that negotiations on a new Russian base are "vital" for Armenia.

(...) we consider it vital to start urgent negotiations on the deployment of a new Russian military base in the Syunik region. The military base will, on the one hand, support the effective, dynamic activities of the Russian peacekeeping forces in Karabakh, on the other hand, the guarantor of long-term peace and security in the region

- said Marukyan.

The Armenian politician noted that Armenia already has a positive experience in the deployment of the 102nd Russian military base in Gyumri. This base has been the guarantor of the republic's security for decades and ensures the inviolability of the border from Turkey.

The 102nd Russian military base has been deployed in Gyumri since 1995. The total number of personnel is about 5 thousand people. The base also includes the Erebuni airfield in Yerevan. The airbase is armed with modernized MiG-29 fighters, Mi-24P attack helicopters and military transport Mi-8MT.

Initially, the period of stay of the Russian military on the territory of Armenia was 25 years, but in 2010 the document was amended, increasing the period from 25 to 49 years.

    Do the Armenians really want to tie the blood of the Russian Federation to their nationalist antics?

        Then there will be a second military base and camp sites and sanatoriums.

            You drew attention to the fact that the Armenians do not at all remember the time when they walked in crowds in Yerevan, burned Russian flags and shouted "Russians go home".
            Now they are asking Russia to save them from the Iizers by building ANOTHER base ...

            I think our military bases on the territories of neighboring states are much better than the NATO bases in the same place, this is clearly beneficial for us, but on what conditions they are located there is another question, the Americans take money for this, arguing that they are protecting them, it would be nice learn from experience, otherwise we are sponsoring more and more

            The fact of the matter is that if it were not for Russia's interests, let the "hot Caucasian guys" figure it out themselves. Only one conclusion can be drawn from the situation. Instead of intelligence, Armenians have only ambition, which, as recent events have shown, does not help.

        The later insight of the Armenian leadership is the quintessence of their former stupidity. It was necessary to shed a lot of blood, lose territory and only then guess about the obvious things! fool The Armenian people need to ask themselves the question, do they need such a stupid government?

                        This is legal casuistry behind which you hide the fact. Armenia actually controlled this territory and actually disposed of it as its own. Now she has lost it.

                        It doesn't matter that she temporarily controlled there. This does not mean that Karabakh is Armenian. Temporary control of a territory does not mean ownership of it with all that it implies.

                        Do not make me laugh. Only a few can afford the luxury of neglecting 'papers'. From among the geopolitical titans. To which the Armenians do not belong. They did not bother to acquire any legitimate leverage in relation to Karabakh.

    Armenian opposition proposes to place a second Russian military base in the country

    It's good that at least they began to understand that they cannot survive without Russia.

    They don't need a base, but a training center, or a training ground.

    Creating such a base would be a big mistake. That is why you do not need to be led to any of their calls, but simply force them to build a modern army for themselves for their own money. Then neither Azerbaijan nor Turkey will be afraid of them. And how to build in Yerevan the largest American intelligence center against Russia, here they do not take into account our opinion, they are too "proud". But as soon as we got snot from the Azerbaijanis, let the Russians go straight away, fight for us, save the Christians. Fig them - let them let the hat around the world, collect money, and we will supply them with weapons, and teach people at their expense.

    lost control of the disputed territories

    It was written above:
    Quote: Proxima
    It was necessary to shed a lot of blood, lose territory, and only then

    Control by control, but no своих Armenia did not lose territories. No semantics needed.

    Well, first of all, there are worse things than losing territory ... this is surrender or humiliate to ask for forgiveness and ask for help, and whoever betrayed, insulted, or did nothing, Armenia managed to do both that no other country in the world did, even with complete death existence ....
    and what would become of Armenia if Russia did not intervene?

    when you read the history of Russia in the Caucasus such a feeling Russian vassals of Armenians ... when they want and what they want the Armenians use them ... and in the end the Russians are to blame and were left alone with the problems ... ... I apologize if I offended the claw, but the point here is not about Russia, but about his cellmate ... People do not take offense at me, but believe me, neither friend nor ally or vassal will come out of them ... this is a snake warmed in his chest ... believe me. ... for them, betrayal or giving a word of which they are not going to keep a lie. will be exposed on the victory of another. delusion. theft from a neighbor ... this is a tactic for existence ... any Caucasian will tell you this and it has been tested for centuries ... yes there is good city, with understandings, but in general it is very difficult to shoot and dangerous ..

    If the opposition (that is, the minority) is for the Russian bases,
    then what does the majority want then?

    Oh! Is it possible to build a hospital instead of a base? Well, so that cataract surgery does not wait six months, but at least three months?
