Two strong points of the Russian military base created in the south of Armenia

24

Two strong points of the 102nd Russian base have been established in the south of Armenia in the Syunik region. This was announced by the acting. Prime Minister of the Republic Nikol Pashinyan.


Thus, the previously announced information about the expansion of the Russian military base in Armenia was confirmed. True, initially there was talk about the creation of one strong point in the Syunik region, and not two, and the redeployment of a part of the Russian military personnel there. The ongoing negotiations between the Ministry of Defense of Russia and Armenia were reported in mid-April this year.

According to Pashinyan, the deployment of the Russian military on the border with Azerbaijan and Iran will serve as an additional guarantee of security not only for the Syunik region, but for the whole of Armenia.

Earlier, the Armenian opposition announced the need to open a second Russian military base on the territory of Armenia, but the Ministry of Defense of the republic rejected this proposal, stating that the agreement between the countries provides for the deployment of only one. Therefore, it was proposed to expand the capabilities of the 102nd military base in Gyumri with the redeployment of part of the military personnel to the Syunik region.

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.

    Successful service to all military personnel! The situation is complicated there, precisely by the disposition of political forces in Armenia itself.

        The base was created in order to guard the corridor to Nakhichevan. There will be a railway and a main line. It was an agreement signed after the end of the war. This was one of the conditions of Azerbaijan. So 2 bases are still not enough. It should be around the entire perimeter. The Russian FSB is responsible for the security of this corridor.

        Right. In the 90s, the Armenians gave 10 hours for the Azerbaijanis to leave Karabakh and 7 regions, and Azerbaijan gave them 1 month, only unlike the Azerbaijanis, the Armenians killed the civilian population, deceiving the Azerbaijanis. We watch the video and if we have honor and conscience, we will understand who is a good neighbor in quotes



        PS "Good Neighbors" have never assigned ALL neighbors to the land.

          In his book "Campaigns and Horses" Lieutenant Mamontov clearly describes how the Armenian heroes fought in the civil war. Nothing changes.

          This is how you "pinned" the Turks, am I right? ) We climbed into Transcaucasia, into Syria, into Libya. They are salivating on Iran. Cyprus does not want peace. They will gradually burrow into the Balkan countries.

          These are not so washed by skating. They climbed into Azerbaijan in sheep's clothing, putting, in fact, the country under external control. For the return of several regions, Azerbaijan risks paying off with the loss of statehood as such. A good "interest" on the loan, there is nothing to say.

            You could just as well indicate Russia. From Transnistria to Georgia. And if we speak in honor and conscience, then Turkomans live on the territory of Syria ... and the Russian Air Force destroys them. Why are you silent about this?

            Don't you really think without Turkey, Azerbaijan should have forgotten about Karabakh? Further, he did not fit in but supported the fraternal people. Alas, the Russian side is at war with the brothers, and with the other, it is a milk war, then a meat war, for this you do not understand this.

      Good tidings.
      And it will have a good effect on the alignment of political forces in Armenia.

        Remember, without the permission of the Kremlin, no one, niiiiikto, will ever attack Armenia. Never and nobody. It doesn't affect anything. A corridor to Nakhichevan will be laid in the south. This corridor will be guarded by Russian troops from the FSB. This was signed last year and who is in the subject and who is not a sofa expert understands why this database was created !!!! Taking into account his debt and taking into account what they lost and how they lost, Armenia will not be well influenced by anything for a long time. Moreover, they compare the Russian army with galoshes at the state level (video posted here below) in parliament.

        Will you be wearing pink glasses for a long time?

          Don't make people laugh. Without the permission of the Kremlin, they overcame Karabakh, shot down a VKS helicopter. Or with permission?)

            100% with the permission of the Kremlin, the war began. Putin showed the Armenians what happens to them when you spit in a well from where you drink water. Therefore, almost until the end of the war, the Kremlin gentlemen were silent. Forgot? Azerbaijan took as much as it was allowed to take. So take off your rose-colored glasses. There is no need to diminish the importance of the Kremlin in the Caucasian zone.

              I believe you are right. Tacit consent is the most accurate way. And Pashinyan's panic, his rushing to Moscow, the fact that he did not dare to order the Armenian Armed Forces to fight, actually leaving Karabakh, confirm this. He was probably given to understand that Moscow would stand aside.
              It is difficult to assert, but I think that in Baku from the very beginning they knew about the position of the Kremlin. Otherwise, it would have been a gamble on the part of Azerbaijan with an unknown result. After all, Moscow could easily "create" a pretext for the defense of Armenia, if it were in its interests.

            The sofa expert is immediately visible. This topic is wiped out. Already 1000 times they said they were wrong. At night, a combat helicopter flies at the border of the warring countries at low altitudes without identification signs at night. What had to be done? If the Azerbaijani side has wines for 100, then for 1000 those who drew this route.

          It depends on which side to look at this situation. Armenia's debt to Russia is off scale. Russia after the last war finally takes Armenia. It's a good news. There is no superfluous land, especially since the time of tsarist Russia Russian soldiers shed their blood and gave their lives there. We look.



          on the other hand, there is no oil, no gas, but there are ungrateful people who constantly know that they offend Russia. A rhetorical question ........... is there an need for an ally who, like a pendulum, sometimes thanks to Russia, or the West, or to offend Russia and compare the army and armament of Armenia with galoshes? Despite the fact that the Russian army saved them from complete defeat. Hypocrites.



          Not only did they erect a monument to the fascist in Yerevan, they also managed to do it in Kabakh. And now, on May 9, Russian peacekeepers will march across Karabakh and walk along the square where there is a monument to the fascist. Nonsense isn't it? Here is your ally

    All this suggests that there is no independent Armenia. There is an outpost of Russia called Armenia. Even without shame and conscience, they say that their "ancient spirit" is invincible. So that's it.

    Some kind of strong point, unlucky ... crossed the hostel and the stationary traffic police post ...
    At the strong points should be deployed units of the VP and PV of the FSB of the Russian Federation, and not combined arms units ...
    Under these strongholds, the 102nd WB can be strengthened by transferring the Air Force company, AA and UAV units and units of the RF FSB, strengthening our grouping of RF troops in the RA, the Azerbaijanis and Turks will not mind, if only the corridor to Nakhichevan would work faster and become part of the logistics route from Turkey to Azerbaijan and back ...

      Believe me, there is no need for a stronghold there, it is enough just to put the flag of Russia and the hostel, no one will dare to attack, they will answer dearly. This is more than enough. Azerbaijanis are just waiting for the corridor to work.

        This mythical "corridor" has really got out! Wandering from site to site!
        There is a plundered one-track railway in the Senyuk region of Armenia, 90 km, on the left bank of the Araks.
        Not a single tie has been laid there in six months !!!
