The exercises will be held in the area of ​​the city of Kars, which previously belonged to the Russian Empire, and today is located 80 kilometers from the border with Armenia.

The Turkish Ministry of National Defense issued an appeal to the Azerbaijani army, which arrived for the maneuvers.

It is with great pride that we say "Welcome" to our brothers, who won a great victory over the Armenian army in Karabakh. We will continue to work as "one heart, one wrist, one fist" with our understanding of "one nation, two states!"

- says the appeal.

    "Near the borders of Armenia" - it is said too much.
    For small states, 80 km is a very decent distance.
    Demonstration? Yes, absolutely.
    But within acceptable limits.

        Rather, the wounds of Armenia ... The short-lived independent Armenia was unable to keep Kars, the Turks captured it ... And the Bolsheviks did not want to harness themselves to a part of the former empire, they almost managed to squeeze Batumi from the Turks, and in favor of Georgia ... now Turkish business is not bad crushed this very Batumi ...

            By and large, Kars belonged to the Russian Empire, let's say - three Turkish silts: Kars, Ardahan and Erzurum ... yes, the revolution did its vile deed ...
            According to the census of the Russian Empire at the end of the 1897th century (20.805), the population of the city was 10.305 people. Of these, 50 (almost 27%) are Armenians, about 5% are Russians, 3,5% are Poles, 3,7% are Greeks and others, and only XNUMX% are Turks.
            According to the Brest-Litovsk Peace Treaty on March 3, 1918, Kars, together with the districts of Batum and Ardahan, went to Turkey, most of the city's population was killed or forced to leave their homes.

            After the defeat in the First World War, the Turks left Kars, and the British troops entered the city. Kars was transferred to the Republic of Armenia, and a significant number of Armenian families returned to their hometown. In 1920, Kars was again occupied by Turkish troops and, according to the Treaty of Kars of 1921, became part of Turkey. Here's a story ...

      The Azerbaijani Armed Forces regularly conduct joint planned military exercises, according to a previously developed scenario. There is no need to look for subtext.

      But the length from west to east is more than 1,6 thousand km - a lot.

      ..with our understanding “one nation, two states..

      This is a successful concept for us. It actually works.
      It seems that Russia was unlucky in this matter. They had some unreliable brothers. Everyone is staring at the West. Here Pashik, for example, is holding on to power with all his might. Stubbornly waiting for Biden))

        Nikol Pashinyan and the anti-Russian team were not too lazy to throw a stone into the Russian vegetable garden. Arpine Hovhannisyan, head of the “Legal Education and Control” public organization, ex-Minister of Justice of Armenia, said this in an interview with Armenian News NEWS.am.
        According to her, it is symbolic that yesterday, on the day of Joe Biden's inauguration in the Armenian parliament, Pashinyan organized his next “parade of lies”. “He and his anti-Russian team were not too lazy to throw a stone into the garden of Russia, answering the question about the agreement on Karabakh with more acceptable conditions for Armenia, which the Russian president spoke about, he began to indirectly deny what Vladimir Putin said,” she said, recalling that Putin said earlier that on October 19 there was an opportunity to sign a document under which the city of Shushi remained Armenian, provided that refugees from Azerbaijan returned there.
        Pashinyan began to refute this again, moreover, he called Shushi an Azerbaijani city, in this way he “put the cherry on the cake”. Well, a traitor, he is a traitor ...
        In turn, Hovhannes Igityan, another anti-Russian figure who once voted against Russia in PACE, said that resolving the issue of prisoners is just one call from Putin. Thus, once again pointing to Russia. This is a misunderstanding and the “team of idiots” cannot explain in any way why we pay taxes, why they receive salaries and bonuses, if Russia decides all issues.

      "Lay softly, sleep hard." Until the Turks put the Azerbaijani army and the Ministry of Internal Affairs under full control, they will pour out these "rivers of oil". And when they understand that "the deed is done", they, suddenly, "remember" that the Azerbaijanis, in fact, are Shiites, and in order to become real "brothers" of the Ottomans, they need to change their religion. In the event of Sunitization, the Azeris will completely lose their national identity and become Turks, albeit second-rate. In case of refusal from Sunitization, the "brothers" will calmly cut out the disaffected. In principle, both scenarios will suit the unfinished Sultan. But there is one point: the rakhbar of Iran is an ethnic Azeri, and there are more Azeris in Iran than there are Azeris in Azerbaijan itself, and this entire public will not calmly look at the religious renegade of brothers from the North or their extermination by the Turks. This is where it starts ...

    No really .. Be careful .. Kars under the agreement STAYED with Turkey.
    [/ quote] Treaty of San Stefano recognized the independence of Serbia, Montenegro and Romania, and their territory increased. Bosnia and Herzegovina was to form an autonomous region. A new autonomous Slavic principality was created in the Balkans - Bulgaria, which included ethnic Bulgarian territories in Moesia, Thrace and Macedonia. Bulgaria stretched from the Danube to the Aegean Sea, from the Black Sea to Lake Ohrid and had to be under Russian rule for two years, after which it received full autonomy, paying Turkey a nominal tribute.

    Turkey pledged to pay 1,410 billion rubles. indemnities, of which 1,1 billion were paid off due to territorial concessions - Ardahan, Kars, Batum, Bayazet in Asia; Dobrudzha, Danube Delta Island and Snake Island in Europe. As a reward for returning the southern part of Bessarabia to Russia, the territories ceded by the Turks in Europe were transferred to Romania (that is, Northern Dobrudzha).

    Turkey pledged comply exactly with the restrictive regulations of 1868 in relation to Crete, introduce the administration in Thessaly and Albania on a similar principle and carry out reforms in Armenia. [quote]

    As Aralov himself later recalled, Lenin told him in his parting speech: “The Turks are fighting for their national liberation. Therefore, the Central Committee sends you there - as someone who knows military affairs. "
    Aralov traveled with Mustafa Ataturk to the front and shared with him the experience gained during the Civil War. In the summer of 1922, he helped the Turkish command to prepare a general counteroffensive.
