US congressmen call for the creation of a UN peacekeeping mission “to protect Armenians in Karabakh”

The situation in Nagorno-Karabakh, after the recent escalation, is gradually moving towards a peaceful direction. Yesterday, after negotiations between representatives of Stepanakert and Baku through the mediation of Russian peacekeepers, the parties agreed on a ceasefire.

Today, the Azerbaijani authorities plan to hold a meeting with the Armenian population of Karabakh in Yevlakh. The key topic of the negotiations will be the discussion of the rights of Armenians living in the region that has recognized the authority of Baku.

At the same time, the Armenian Caucus of the US Congress previously called on the Biden administration to initiate a peacekeeping mission in Nagorno-Karabakh at the next meeting of the UN Security Council, which will take place today. This measure is supposedly necessary to protect the 120 Armenians living in the region from genocide in Azerbaijan.

According to the Armenian National Committee of America, more than 40 congressmen, including both Democrats and Republicans, joined the above-mentioned call today. Lawmakers condemn the genocidal blockade and large-scale attack by the Azerbaijani army on the civilian population of Karabakh, which they wrote in a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken and US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield.

Moreover, in addition to protecting Armenians living in Nagorno-Karabakh at the level of UN peacekeepers, congressmen are demanding that the Biden administration impose sanctions against Azerbaijani officials and enforce Section 907 restrictions on American military and security assistance to Azerbaijan.

In turn, while the world community “demonstrates activity” in the issue of protecting the Armenian population of Artsakh, official Yerevan decided to distance itself from this problem, shifting responsibility for its fellow citizens to Russian peacekeepers.

Thus, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan stated that his country did not participate in the preparation of the agreement between Baku and Stepanakert. At the same time, Russia was the initiator of the truce, which means that Moscow took upon itself the obligation to ensure the rights of Armenians in the region.

Meanwhile, the Armenians of Artsakh find refuge at the base of Russian peacekeepers. To date, more than 5000 people have moved there.

      American congressmen did not call for the protection of the rights of Russians and Russian-speaking people in Crimea and Donbass in 2014... Oh, those double, triple standards...
      Well, how we surprised the whole West,
      When did Crimea return to Russia!!!
      I hope we surprise you more than once,
      When Kharkov and Donbass return,
      Well, then Kherson and Nikolaev...
      We wish them to return to their homeland!!!

        There are Armenian and Jewish lobbies in the US Congress
        There is no Russian lobby there.
        That's the only difference.
        By the way, when was bribery elevated to (I quote) “an important element of the democratic process and allowing the authorities and the public to represent the interests of people,” in the 19th or still the 20th century?

      In Karabakh, at the time to defend themselves from the Armenians, they created armed gangs and wanted to legitimize their thieves’ power (there was no work), but Aliyev showed who’s boss. The attack on the Russian MS is undoubtedly their business, Azerbaijan took its course and there is no need for them to conflict, the car had all the identifying marks, and besides, it was an ordinary army UAZ, but for the Armenians this provocation was beneficial from all sides, either to draw Russia in or force them to leave completely Armenia, they have already agreed with France and the United States, and now they are dragging them away.

        However, Azerbaijan has already admitted that it was their military that fired. Aliyev apologized, fired the commander of the brigade in which these soldiers serve, offered compensation to the families of the victims, and a joint investigation with Russia is underway.

        Look wider and deeper, the long-term goal is that the United States and France (at least) are trying to enter and gain a foothold in Armenia, then everything is according to the Ukrainian scenario, only in an accelerated version, but Aliyev, a smart politician, calculates all the moves (Soviet KGB school), the Turkish Gambit is being played out there - 2. Nobody will be bored for sure. I even assume a conflict within NATO (from Turkey)

    Did the UN blue helmets decide anything? Azerbaijan keeps its gold and foreign currency reserves at home, otherwise the American Armenians can sell sanctions in Congress.

        Why do you need peacekeepers? Constitutional order was restored in 48 hours, and there are internal troops and police against the Armenian organized crime groups. I don’t think that Aliyev is more stupid than his self-propelled grandfather and granddaughter, and will never allow them to rule his territory.

          Why do you need peacekeepers?

          Russians are needed. When Azerbaijanis settle in Karabakh, peacekeepers are needed so that there is no massacre there. The Armenians cannot live without provocations, but ours will not waste time on trifles.

      These devils are definitely not needed in Russia. Close the borders tightly for Armenians!
      And let the refugees from the self-proclaimed “Artsakh” in Armenia demolish Pashinyan and hang him from a lantern in gratitude. And let the “native stones” settle down.

    What about the sanctions and trade blockade of Azerbaijan? After all, he staged direct aggression with the occupation of territories? How will the EU refuse their oil? Or is it something else and only Russia is to blame for everything?

      Pashinyan officially renounced territorial claims to Azerbaijan and stated that there are no Armenian troops in Karabakh!!! What aggression and occupation are you writing about? In its purest form, a police operation ON MY territory, I am not defending Azerbaijan, I am simply interpreting international law.

      Do you think that Pashinyan will be given the right to make an independent decision? He is just an ordinary figure in solving the problem of strengthening Armenia’s dependence on the United States.

    It’s too late to drink Borjomi when the kidneys have fallen off. Somehow they didn’t rush to the aid of Karabakh. And Pashinyan, like a skunk, continues to stink towards Russia, whose peacekeepers are helping the Armenians of Artsakh.

    Even the multi-move of the Anglo-Saxons did not go according to their scenario. Now they are sitting, thinking about how to rectify the situation......

    In general, it looks like they (the Anglo-Saxons) will try with all their might to start a war - carry out political provocations, jump around with pots on their heads, send drg, shoot at Azerbaijanis, Armenians and Russians......

    It all happened too quickly and relatively bloodlessly - no arms supplies to you, no source of instability in Transcaucasia near the borders of the Russian Federation and Iran, and most importantly, neither the Russian Federation nor Iran bear any costs, the costs were borne by the Anglo-Saxons and the Orman Soros

    There is no need to create anything there. The Armenian diaspora in Karabakh is about 60 thousand people. If the Armenian issue is so important to the West, take them to you, for the EU this is not a question, several million keglov were accepted, but here there are only 60 thousand, however, if such a rigmarole goes on, I believe that the population of Karabakh can sharply increase in a week to 1 million people, with official registration and a stamp in their passport.

      If only there was a million. In a week, all of Armenia and a quarter of Moscow will hold a referendum and join Karabakh. laughing
