Yerevan Maidan: who is shaking Armenia?

83
In recent days alarming news come from Armenia. This small Transcaucasian republic is rightly considered the only real ally of Russia in the region. Armenians simply have nowhere to go from the pro-Russian line - in the neighborhood is hostile Azerbaijan, a long-standing historical the adversary is Turkey, which is by no means a loyal Georgia ... For Armenia, Russia has always been a guardian angel, with its military power and political influence, it has warned neighboring states from committing undesirable mistakes in the form of aggression against Yerevan. However, the anti-Russian sentiment inspired by the United States and its satellites has reached Armenia. As in Ukraine, as in other states that have passed through the “copper pipes” of the “orange revolutions”, in Armenia, anti-Russian fire kindled by foreign agents is presented as a cleansing fire for the fight against corruption, with the lawlessness of those in power, and with poor police work.


Yerevan Maidan: who is shaking Armenia?


The reason for the protests, which began on June 19, was the decision of the Armenian government to raise current electricity tariffs. In principle, the people's anger is quite understandable. In poor Armenia, people are not spoiled by cheap prices anyway, but here is another increase in tariffs. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the Electric Networks of Armenia (ESA) company is controlled by Russia, which in the eyes of the ordinary man in the politics leads to the emergence of a chain: “Electricity networks raise prices - Electricity networks controlled by Russia mean Russia is to blame for the deterioration of the life of the Armenian population.” Mass protests on the streets of Yerevan, and then other cities of Armenia, began with speeches against tariff increases, but quickly acquired political content. It began with the fact that activists of opposition political parties joined the protesters. The oppositionists brought political slogans, first of all, the demands of the resignation of President Serzh Sargsyan, the government, the rejection of the “pro-Russian” policy. As the protest becomes “politicized”, the aggressiveness of the demonstrators who have gone out on the street is growing. 23 June authorities were forced to disperse the first rally. During clashes with the police, 14 demonstrators and 11 police officers were injured; 237 protesters were detained by police officers. The representative of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Armenia, Armen Malkhasyan, told media reporters that brass knuckles, clubs and knives had been found with the detainees. However, severe sanctions against the protesters did not follow. More than 200 people, detained by police, soon released. The next protest rally gathered thousands of people 10, and despite the absence of any “cannibalistic” measures from the administration and police forces, the situation began to heat up rapidly. As in a similar situation in Ukraine, provocateurs appeared in the ranks of the demonstrators, adding fuel to the fire, and anti-Russian slogans appeared.

Russophobia in Armenia

The Armenian people for the most part have never been characterized by anti-Russian sentiments. Armenians had to transfer too much from their neighbors, too much help from the Russian state, and then to oppose the Russian people, against Russia. But, as in other post-Soviet states, nationalist and anti-Russian sentiments also spread in Armenia, albeit at a much more limited level than in neighboring Georgia, or, especially, in the Baltic States and in Ukraine. The origins of Armenian Russophobia go back to the end of the XIX - early XX centuries, when the Armenian nationalist movement began to form in Transcaucasia and among the Armenian diaspora, which initially bore only anti-Turkish orientation, but later began to make claims to the Russian Empire, and then, in the post-revolutionary era, to Soviet Union. By the way, the creation of the First Armenian Republic, which existed in 1918-1920, showed that without support from the “third party” it was doomed to become a victim of the aggressive policy of neighboring Turkey. Armenian nationalists sought to enlist the patronage of Great Britain and the United States of America, but ultimately the Entente powers did not provide Armenia with proper assistance, and the country's further development over the course of seven decades took place as part of the Soviet state - in one spike with Russia and other once fraternal republics.

One must be fair - anti-Russian sentiments in Armenia have never taken such a zoological character as in Ukraine or the Baltic states. If Russophobia of Western Ukrainian and Baltic nationalists is of a racist and Nazi nature, then anti-Russian sentiments in Armenia are more likely to be directed against Russia as a state than against the Russian people. Indeed, in the history of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union there have been manifestations of Armenian terrorism in the form of terrorist acts committed, as a rule, against specific officials related to the “Armenian issue”. It is difficult to set Armenians against Russia, and during the twentieth century, really Russophobic sentiments among the Armenian people were ultimately failed to be achieved either by the nationalists of the beginning of the century, or by the British, or the Nazis. Today, the baton of the British and Nazis was replaced by the United States of America, whose agents of influence are glad of any opportunity to “prick” Russia.

Murder in Gyumri

The “black line” between Russia and a significant part of the country's population was laid after 12 in January 2015 in the city of Gyumri an Avetisyan Armenian family was killed - seven people, including children of two years and six months. A terrible tragedy occurred in the morning. The criminal shot six members of his family with a machine gun, and the seventh - six-month-old Sergei Avetisyan - stabbed him with a bayonet. Soon the suspect was detained. They turned out to be a serviceman of the 102-th Russian military base in Armenia, Valery Permyakov, who shortly before committing the crime, voluntarily left the location of the unit. According to the investigators, after having escaped from the military unit, Permyakov went out to residential buildings located on Myasnikyan Street. His attention was attracted by one of the common courtyards, where the criminal and entered, having seen several one-story houses in front of him. The criminal entered into one of them, breaking the glass part of the entrance door. The owner of 53-year-old Sergey Avetisyan and his 33-year-old son Armen Avetisyan jumped out at the sound of the broken glass. The criminal shot both of them with a machine gun, then shot the host's wife 51-year-old Hasmik Avetisyan and 35-year-old daughter of the host Aida, shot 24-year-old daughter-in-law Araksiya and two-year-old granddaughter Hasmik. A six-month-old Sergei, the criminal struck his chest with a bayonet seven times. Seven days later, the baby died in a hospital. Further, the criminal collected the things of those killed, threw the machine gun and disappeared. On the night of January 13, Russian border guards who are guarding the Armenian-Turkish border, in the Bayandur village, detained a Russian army officer Permyakov disguised as civilian clothes. The deserter tried to cross the border with Turkey. Valery Permyakov was detained and handed over to the command of the 102 military base. A little later, he confessed to the investigators of the military prosecutor's office in the murder of six people.



Naturally, the news of the bloody crime that the Russian soldier is accused of was immediately used by anti-Russian elements both in Armenia and abroad. For opponents of the Russian military and political presence in the Transcaucasus, there was a great opportunity to “warm up” public opinion and put forward the demand for the liquidation of the Russian military base. Moreover, Valery Permyakov, in accordance with the agreement of the Russian and Armenian sides, should be judged by a garrison military court, that is, the killer of Armenian citizens has not been extradited to the law enforcement bodies of Armenia, and will be judged by Russian laws and, most likely, will serve time in Russian prisons. The last fact was considered by many Armenian citizens as evidence of the dependence of the Armenian leadership on Russia, which does not even allow a criminal to kill a family of citizens of the country according to the laws of Armenia. This excited the opposition-minded part of the population, which was successfully warmed up with anti-Russian slogans. On January 13, a rally was held near the embassy of the Russian Federation in Yerevan, at which a demand was made to withdraw the Russian ambassador to Armenia and withdraw the Russian military base from the country’s territory. The next day, in Gyumri, thousands of protesters gathered at the gates of the Russian military base, and in Yerevan a protest rally was held near the residence of the head of state Serzh Sargsyan. On January 15, at the Russian Embassy in Yerevan, anti-Russian forces staged a brawl with the police, intending to burn the Russian flag. The enormity of the crime committed in Gyumri does not cancel the absurdity of the demands put forward by the protesters. The Russian military base in Armenia is beneficial not only and not so much to Russia, as to Yerevan itself, since the military presence of the Russian Federation in the region serves as a guarantee against possible manifestations of aggression from the same Azerbaijan. In conditions when militants of the “Islamic State” are operating in the territory of Syria and Iraq, not so far from Armenia, destroying the entire Christian population in the occupied lands and destroying all Christian shrines, only genuine can withdraw the Russian military base and break the relations with Russia the enemies of Armenia and the Armenian people. What are people who use the terrible tragedy and murder of children to achieve their political goals.

The crime in Gyumri ideally played into the hands of the anti-Russian forces in the South Caucasus and the United States behind them. After Georgia finally fell out with Russia, and Azerbaijan also demonstrates far from pro-Russian policy, Armenia remained the only country in the region that, due to historical ties and confessional affinity, supported the Kremlin’s foreign policy on most issues. Naturally, the anti-Russian forces didn’t like it, and they didn’t fail to take advantage of such a vivid reason to discredit the Russian influence in Armenia. However, by joint efforts of the Russian and Armenian leadership, the national outrage that followed the tragedy in Gyumri was somewhat mitigated. In particular, the command of the Russian armed forces promised in the foreseeable future to completely replace the recruits serving in the Russian military base with contract servicemen.

"Elektromaydan"

Now, the West seems to have thrown a new anti-Russian card on the table - the socio-economic problems that post-Soviet Armenia is facing throughout its entire sovereign existence. Of course, the economic situation in Armenia is far from calling it not only good, but even satisfactory. The level of corruption, arbitrariness on the part of the power structures and law enforcement agencies, the “oligarchization” of the state, as in other countries of the post-Soviet space, passes all conceivable and inconceivable boundaries. The electric power complex of the country belongs to the Russian business, which does not take into account the level of well-being of the Armenian people (as well as the Russian one) and builds its pricing policy based on its own ideas about material benefits. Finally, Russia is indeed friendly with Armenia, not only because of the presence of long-standing traditions of interaction, confessional and cultural affinity, but also for reasons of a military-political nature. But what can protesters in return offer? After all, less than two years ago, under the same beautiful anti-oligarchic slogans, Euromaidan began in Kiev. He turned into a bloody civil war, for nearly one and a half years shaking the once flourishing Donbass. The destruction of fraternal ties between nations and even between family members. Complete destabilization of the legal and political situation in Ukraine, economic collapse, destruction of infrastructure. And the very oligarchs against whom the Maidan rose, remained and became even richer, and the people even poorer and more deprived of rights. In no country in the world where the Orange Revolutions took place and American political or military intervention in internal affairs took place, the people did not improve their welfare, moreover - most often, the economic crisis only worsened, and in some cases the countries simply collapsed and turned into spaces of bloody chaos, as happened with Iraq or Libya.



In Yerevan, the situation is somewhat reminiscent of Kiev at the end of 2013. The people are annoyed by economic failures, which are successfully used by foreign “experts on the introduction of democracy” and their supporters from among the local “agents of influence”. Rising electricity prices - what is not a reason for popular revolt, for the next “social revolution” against “corrupt”? The one who is the true customer of the “Yerevan Maidan” testifies to the delight that gripped the Russophobic Ukrainian press after the start of speeches in the capital of Armenia. In which only colors do not the Ukrainian mass media describe street protests in Yerevan. And again the same thought slips in - “Russia is to blame for everything”, “in Armenia it is necessary to make a Maidan, like in Ukraine, and to stand against Russia”. Of course, the US embassy in Armenia was very interested in the unrest in Yerevan, which in such situations always takes on the role of one of the coordinators of protest actions. Pro-American forces in Armenia are calling to break with the “imperial past” and distance themselves from Russia, especially since cooperation with it has lately been increasingly fraught with complications in relations with Western countries. Local Russophobes see the future of Armenia in “integration into the European space”, and they only forget that for Western Europe, Armenia and Armenians will never be “their own”. In the eyes of the average European, Armenians are exotic Eastern people, and no German, French or Belgian will seriously consider integration into the “European space”. This is about the same thing as integrating Chinese, Indians or Bangladeshis into the European space. Another thing is that the European demagogy can be perfectly used for the cultivation of anti-Russian sentiments among the Armenian population, first of all among the intelligentsia and always maximalist and radically minded students.

American diplomats issued a statement expressing "concern over reports of the unlawful use of force by the police during the dispersal of protesters." Who gave the right to the United States to determine the degree of competence of the actions of the police of a sovereign state does not interest anyone. After all, the opponents of the current Armenian president, and his supporters, and Russian, Ukrainian, European politicians watching the situation, understand that the unrest in Yerevan and other Armenian cities, if not directly inspired by the United States, is held with the direct support of Washington. It’s another thing that among these “understandings”, the part consciously supports the American policy, naively believing that “Uncle Sam” for dog loyalty will allow to take a million-dollar loan for “the development of civil society in Armenia”. In fact, the United States does not care about Armenia, moreover, the implementation of American plans to turn the Middle East into a burning cauldron of revolutions and civil wars directly threatens the sovereignty of Armenia, its national security and the direct physical survival of the country's inhabitants. Armenians, Assyrians, Kurds, Yezidis, Arabs, Greeks ... For American and European politicians, all these peoples are nothing more than names from textbooks on ethnography. Their prosperity, and even their existence, the Western world is of little interest. But the nationalist, religious-fundamentalist, right-radical and left-radical movements of the peoples of the Middle East, the Caucasus and Central Asia are good insofar as they contribute to the destabilization of the situation on the southern borders of Russia, destroy projects to create any integration spaces outside the field of American influence. If necessary - the United States will gladly provoke an Armenian-Azerbaijani, Armenian-Georgian, Armenian-Turkish and even Armenian-Russian conflict, if only to achieve the realization of its own political and economic goals. In the struggle, any means are good and ardent supporters of a market economy from Washington can, where necessary, advocate the nationalization of industry, demonstrate imaginary concern for the social well-being of the population, for the elimination of corruption and abuse of those in power.



It is impressive that the United States and the human rights organizations under its control, such as the Caucasian Center for Peacekeeping Initiatives, the branches of the Helsinki Citizens Assembly and the Soros Foundation Open Society, were supported precisely by the economic demands of the protesters for lowering electricity tariffs. In the mouth of the representatives of the “most capitalist” country in the world, social demands sound, to put it mildly, amazingly. Moreover, many protesters are demanding nationalization of the energy company - and yet the United States in most countries of the world was the most zealous opponent of nationalization - of course, when nationalization concerned American companies. By the way, the star of world show business, Serj Tankian, the leader of the “System of a Down” rock band, has publicly announced his support for the demands of the protesters to reduce tariffs and nationalize the country's electric power industry. However, in Kiev at the end of 2013, American diplomats and local "human rights activists" in every way speculated social problems of Ukrainian society, knowing full well that it was the "social worker", and not arguments about "civil society" and "human rights", that on the streets of the broad masses of the population. The “Kiev variant” is also seen in attracting world stars, “famous Armenians”, in order to give protest a more solid status, creating protesters the image of fighters for people's justice. World stars from the number of Armenians who had not lived in Armenia for a long time (and most often never lived there), but who are US citizens, should demonstrate in the eyes of the world community that the entire Armenian people and, above all, their cultural and intellectual elite , opposes the “Russian imperial influence” and opposes the current government and the president of the country.



Also recently, the trade of the Russian Federation with Azerbaijan, including the supply of Russian weapons to the Azerbaijani army, has been increasingly used as a pretext for provoking anti-Russian sentiments. Armenia regards Azerbaijan as a potential adversary and aggressor, attempting to violate the territorial integrity of the Armenian state. However, for the Russian Federation, Azerbaijan is only one among many post-Soviet republics, with which Russia, as with Armenia, is in a state of developed trade and economic relations. A large Azerbaijani diaspora lives in Russia, including places of compact residence of Azerbaijanis. There are no formal reasons to refuse to sell to Azerbaijan. weapons, especially since Russia sells weapons to Armenia, moreover at preferential prices. And it is Russia that ultimately acts as a counterweight, warning both countries against initiating hostilities against each other.

Behind the protesters - USA

In recent days, it was reported that the leadership of Armenia is considering the issue of a possible reduction in electricity tariffs. Of course, for the pro-American forces in the country this decision of the Armenian government would be very inappropriate, therefore the local opposition organizations moved to the second line of attack - now it’s not high electricity tariffs, but the general policy of the government and personally President Serzh Sargsyan is fiercely criticized for them . They say that he too closely cooperates with Russia, and is “corrupt” and “reminds the dictator”. In general, the usual story for countries that are outlined by the United States as an object for further expansion of the "orange revolutions". In Armenia, the United States can compete with Europe - after all, Armenia has strategic importance in the Middle East, that is, it is of direct interest in the context of further activating the pro-American forces of the region. The well-known Russian political scientist Yegor Kholmogorov even believes that in Armenia, at the origins of the riots, it is pro-American and not pro-European forces that stand and the United States can try to do without European integration slogans in Armenia. Of course, there are quite a few supporters of European integration among the Armenian opposition, but they are noticeably losing to the pro-American forces, which are supported by direct financial and organizational support from Washington. Egor Kholmogorov stresses that "revolution planners this time want to put a revolutionized country under the direct custody of the United States, bypassing the EU" (E. Kholmogorov, Krysolov revolutions // http://izvestia.ru/news/588084#ixzzNNXXeAWg3FFQ) ".

The only question is whether the United States will have enough forces and means to support hotbeds of destabilization in several regions of the planet simultaneously — in Ukraine, Syria and Iraq, now in Transcaucasia. Most likely, by stimulating the Orange Revolution in Armenia, the United States aims not only to get rid of the Russian presence in Transcaucasia, but also to weaken Russia's positions in Syria and New Russia, diverting the attention of Russian politicians to mass unrest in Yerevan and other Armenian cities. 25 June, the head of the Armenian government nevertheless stated that the prices for electricity will not fall, however, the Armenian government will start paying benefits to low-income families. According to the officials, these benefits are designed to help low-income citizens of Armenia with the payment of housing and communal services, first of all - electricity.



Much in this difficult situation depends on how the head of the Armenian state behaves. I would like the President of Armenia this time to have the courage and determination to prevent the country from sliding into the abyss of “Maidanism”. Moreover, Armenian President Sargsyan is a man with a military past. Serzh Sargsyan is 61 years old. In the past, a Komsomol worker, it was he who in the early 1990s. was one of the most visible leaders in the struggle for self-determination of Nagorno-Karabakh. In 1989-1993 Sargsyan led the committee of the self-defense forces of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, then he was the Minister of Defense of Armenia and the head of the Department of State Security of the Republic of Armenia, the Minister of National Security of Armenia, and headed the government. Serzh Sargsyan became the head of the Armenian state in 2008. A person with such a serious biography, who went through the Karabakh war, seemed to have to react in a different situation a little differently than Viktor Yanukovych, who dragged him to the last and turned out to be a hostage of the situation, and then a political refugee. Yanukovych’s homeland is shaking today aviation strikes and artillery fire, poured blood and civilians, and militias, and mobilized to fight "for the Ukrainian idea" of draftees from Galicia, Transcarpathia, Poltava. It is unlikely that Serzh Sargsyan wants such a terrible future for small Armenia, especially since, unlike Ukraine itself, Armenia is literally in a hostile environment.

However, we do not see any harsh actions on the part of Serzh Sargsyan. 24-25 June he was visiting Brussels. And these days in Yerevan, the confrontation of the police and the protesters continued. The Armenian society, of course, differs from the Ukrainian one. First of all, Armenia is a mono-ethnic country in which Armenians constitute the absolute majority of the population, and apart from them only completely complimentary Armenians live in Yezidis, Assyrians and Russian Molokans. Secondly, Armenia does not have a historical tradition of anti-Russian resistance, on the contrary - Russia has always provided assistance to the Armenian people, a very large Armenian diaspora and no less numerous groups of the Armenian population living in the Russian Federation who have long been indigenous in some districts of the Rostov region, Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories live in the Russian Federation . When Armenian politicians and publicists who adhere to pro-Western positions begin to argue about the presence of anti-Armenian sentiment in Russia, about the possible risk of “pogroms” by the Cossack population in the Krasnodar Territory, it looks at least ridiculous. In the South of Russia, Armenians have long been considered one of the indigenous peoples of the region, have good relations with other peoples and ethnic groups living in the region, and, above all, with the Russian and Cossack population. There are a large number of mixed families, not to mention the friendly and friendly relations between the representatives of the Armenian and other peoples of southern Russia. Therefore, among the Russian citizens of Armenian origin, the events taking place in their “historic homeland” are of great concern. First of all, by the fact that the coming to power in the country of anti-Russian forces may adversely affect the relations between Armenia and Russia. The Armenian population of Russia and Armenia has very close ties, often they are the same families, just someone lives in Armenia, and someone in Russia. The break in Russian-Armenian relations would be no less tragic than the break in Russian-Ukrainian relations, especially since for Armenia it will inevitably be aggravated by the immediate risk of threats from militant neighbors.

The likely consequences of "electric maid"

On the other hand, the “digging” under Serzh Sargsyan is fraught for Armenia with the resumption of the smoldering Karabakh conflict. After all, Serzh Sargsyan and many other prominent political figures of modern Armenia are representatives of the so-called. “Karabakh elite”, veterans of the Karabakh war. If pro-American forces come to power in Armenia, then sooner or later the Karabakh war will resume and, moreover, will entail another change of power in Armenia itself. After all, the pro-American government will not stand up for Karabakh, but the Armenians, as we noted above, are not Ukrainians. They have a very strong national feeling, a very strong national pride and they are unlikely to give up Karabakh. Accordingly, the Transcaucasus will be covered by another war that the United States needs - to destabilize the situation on the borders of Russia and Iran and the possible involvement of these states in the armed conflict, but neither Armenia nor Azerbaijan, nor even ordinary Armenians and Azerbaijanis at all.



One of the leaders of the Armenian opposition, the leader of the Heritage Party, Raffi Hovhannisyan, is the most convenient politician from the point of view of some political scientists. After all, he is a native of the United States of America, a Democrat, that is, an ideal conductor of American political influence. Hovhannisyan was not only born in America, he received higher education at the University of California and Taft, he defended his doctoral dissertation in jurisprudence at Georgetown University. It was in the United States that the first half of Raffi Hovhannisyan’s life took place, which only in 1990, at the age of thirty-one, first arrived in Armenia - “to its historic homeland”, where he immediately took the post of foreign minister (though the Armenian Foreign Ministry briefly headed in 1991-1992.). It is quite probable that it is the West that will put him in his desire to replace Sargsyan with a less obedient candidate who is less connected with Moscow. Raffi Hovhannisyan - for the United States is a real gift, or rather, it is rather the “American gift” of Armenia, the only question is what policy Hovhannisyan will lead in the event of coming to power. After all, even the Armenian opposition recognize the sovereignty of Nagorno-Karabakh, respectively, and if the opposition comes to power in Yerevan, the US will face a rather dubious prospect of choosing between two support objects - Baku (and Istanbul) on the one hand, Yerevan - on the other. Supporting Yerevan, will the United States not have to support Nagorno-Karabakh? But then how does the relationship between the United States and Turkey and Azerbaijan? Moreover, the United States has a 1.5 million Armenian diaspora, many of whose members have serious economic and political influence and can have a definite impact on the foreign policy of the United States towards Armenia.

Meanwhile, independent economists and political scientists are warning the Armenian people from repeating the mistakes of Ukraine. Renowned American economist Paul Craig Roberts says openly: “If Washington succeeds in making a coup in Armenia, like in Ukraine, the next step will be an attack on the Armenian family, legitimizing homosexuality, freeing children from parental control, rethinking relations between parents and children. Armenia will simply be destroyed and will become a vassal state of America. ” It is difficult to disagree with these words of an American economist, especially since they are confirmed by practice - recent events in Ukraine and in other countries where the “American model of democracy” has been approved or is happening. In fact, the United States is only interested in removing Russia from the Transcaucasus, which will ease the pressure on Syria and Iran. The future of Armenia as a sovereign state of American politicians is not interested, and it is possible that the country’s territory, in the event of a global “redrawing” of the political map of West Asia, can be divided between its larger and more interesting neighbors for the United States.



You should not dismiss Turkey as a member of NATO and the historical opponent of Armenia, Azerbaijan, which is also interesting to the United States as a state with significant fuel resources bordering Iran, Georgia is one of the pillars of Russophobic policy in the post-Soviet space, also having certain differences with neighboring Armenia and, finally, the political fate of the Kurdish people, who still do not have their own independent statehood. None of the Armenian politicians who adhere to a pro-American and anti-Russian orientation, once will not be able to answer the banal question, “Why, actually, is America Armenia?”. Indeed, except for the desire to confront Russia, it is not possible to explain the US interest in a distant and small mountainous country. As the Armenian author Artyom Khachaturian correctly emphasizes, “who is the recipient of dividends from Russophobia in Armenia? The answer is obvious: those who conceived the Eastern Partnership in order to curb the reintegration of the post-Soviet space, who are trying to destabilize the situation in the region, who are introducing controlled chaos around the world to maintain the dollar rate, that is, the United States of America ”(A. Khachaturian the successful spread of the epidemic Russophobia in Armenia // http://inosmi.ru/sngbaltia/20130621/210268101.html).

Russian politicians still prefer to maintain the position of “polite neutrality”, preferring not to voice their true opinion regarding the events in Yerevan. However, in reality, everything is already clear - the situation in Armenia is fueled by foreign agents. If now the protesters succeed in moving from meetings with economic slogans to political unrest, then there is a certain possibility of repeating the Euromaidan scenario. The overthrow of Sargsyan will entail the final loss of the Russian positions in Transcaucasia, will create a lot of problems not only for Russia, but also for Syria and Iran, as well, and, perhaps, first of all, for Armenia itself. Unfortunately, what is happening now in Armenia, there is an obvious fault of Russian diplomacy, which underestimates the scale of threats to Russian interests in the former republics of the Soviet Union. In fact, Russia has withdrawn from strengthening its positions in Armenia, including through the development of friendly relations between the two peoples. The fact that anti-Russian sentiments in modern Armenia still remain the lot of the minority of the country's population is explained by the excellent historical memory of the Armenian people, but by no means the specific merits of Russian politicians and diplomats. Therefore, the Russian state should also remember that the historical ties and political interests of Russia in the South Caucasus are much more important than obtaining greater material benefits from the increase in electricity tariffs.

        Yerevan Maidan: who is shaking Armenia?

        I remembered - recently akhejaknulo.
        On Thursday, on the Dozhd TV channel, actress Lia Akhedzhakova, invited to the TV show, apologized to the people of Armenia for the Russian occupation.

        "It's a terrible thing what is happening in Armenia now. The head is like that!" - Lia Akhedzhakova shares with the audience, - "And again it repeats, as it was in Crimea, there are so-called" polite "people already, occupation again. I would like to apologize to the people of Armenia for the Russian aggression and occupation," the opposition actress concluded.

          For Armenians, suicide gives up friendship with Russia. Azerbaijanis will tear them apart immediately and without options for the Armenians. Their army against the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan has nothing to catch.

            However, how arrogant you are ...
            In the years 92-94, was this the Russian army who fought and won in Karabakh? At the beginning of the war, did you fight with Basayev’s gang, with Afghan spirits, Turkish instructors and the regular army of Azerbaijan?
            Do not be afraid, officer (hopefully). And wasted words scatter you, too, does not suit.

            Even if we assume the worst option for Armenia ... and it does not exist, are you sure that Russia will not suffer the same fate? If you yourself can’t analyze it, read Russian analysts, there are a lot of them on the Internet.

            What is this hysteria, paranoia "maydanuty"?
            Does anyone get you with the Russian “temple-maidan”?
            http://www.ridus.ru/news/189463

            Is it so vital for you that the Armenian people be obedient, quiet and meek? So that embezzlers had them and the people were glad of this?
            Some kind of perversion.

            People have the right to defend their point of view and their civic position.

              Stop it. mattress makers have calculated everything in advance and are playing (using) tariff increases. And if it's even simpler, then the people of Armenia are simply "bred". People came out to defend their rights, it seems to them, but in fact they just have them. And the saddest thing is you know what? That in Ukraine after the Maidan, outspoken fascists and thieves steeper than Yanukovych came to power. Although the Ukrainians themselves dreamed that ordinary people would be able to rule the country and thieves, oligarchs and other evil spirits would disappear from them.

              Today, on June 29, a picket is being held in the capital of Kyrgyzstan near the building of the Government House against an increase in tariffs for natural gas. According to the Evening Bishkek newspaper, members of the Zhany Muun (New Generation) social movement take part in the protest. According to the picketers, the action is unlimited, and therefore the government is obliged to respond to their demands.

              One of the organizers of the rally, opposition politician Adil Turdukulov, noted that gas tariffs should not rise, as residents of Kyrgyzstan are in a difficult social situation. “Almazbek Atambayev promised that there would be no increase in prices for blue fuel and sold“ Kyrgyzgaz ”, and now the increase in prices could go,” he said.

              The protesters also demanded that the country's leadership refuse to introduce amendments to the Water Code regarding the implementation by strategic enterprises of work in the immediate vicinity of glaciers, writes “Kant.kg”. “Glaciers should remain intact, they were created by the Almighty, and not by the government or deputies, and not for them to destroy it all. The future generation will not forgive officials for the destruction of glaciers and rising gas prices, ”the opposition said.

                    I am already beginning to not understand our dear members of the forum, firstly, I am not happy and do not think that this notorious "Maidan" is possible in Kyrgyzstan and I put this smiley face to show that I am joking wink . In Kyrgyzstan, they overthrew the presidents twice (I apologize to Akayev, but I don’t remember the name of the second ousted president, maybe Bakiev). So, after all these revolutions, Kyrgyzstan did not take an anti-Russian position, entered the Customs Union, but there are such publications that are now in The Russian press didn’t have any meetings about the rallies in Armenia then. I explain this by the fact that there was no Ukrainian Maidan, there wasn’t so much blood and hatred. Russia became too suspicious of any manifestations of discontent in the states close to it, but I wrote on the forum a few days ago that the presidents come and go, and the Russian and Armenian people remain, do not be so suspicious of the protests if this ill-fated energy company was not Russian, but, for example, an American one, I’m sure that the same statements would be made or even worse. Two years ago in Armenia there were exactly the same performances against the rise in price of tickets for passenger trucking.

              I have always wondered how easy it is to deceive the common people, playing on their national trust. The reference point to the United States has been "swinging" almost since 47, when the first American Armenians arrived in Armenia.
              And at 90 - "America will support us" in Yerevan could be heard at every step. And in what support? Leaving the USSR. Russians, like many others, are colonialists, robbing the Armenian people. It is possible that today Armenia is really being "robbed", because the American principle - nothing personal, only business, has become the basis of Russian capital as well. Now there is someone to compare with and with something, but there are few left who remember history as their own "bumps". "We do not store what we have, and when we lose, we cry." If you wanted capitalism - get "man to man - a wolf". Take this as an appendage from which you can't get away.
              Capitalism is cruel and does not know mercy for the weak. The Americans have long grown together with an animal mask, and the Russians still have this same mask, but there is still a chance that it will fall off, watching the suffering of the former fraternal peoples. Unless, of course, the natural animal nature defeats human sensitivity.

            In June 2005, Electric Networks of Armenia CJSC came under the control of INTER RAO UES Group. Only then, INTER RAO UES itself was 60% owned by RAO UES of Russia (Chubais-Voloshin) and 40% by Rosenergoatom (Kirienko).

            In 2006, INTER RAO UES transferred the Electric Networks of Armenia CJSC to its offshore company Interenergo BV, located in the Netherlands.

            RAO UES of Russia was liquidated in 2008. In the spring of 2008, as part of the electric power industry reform, INTER RAO UES was transformed into an open joint stock company and conducted a public offering of its shares on the MICEX and RTS stock exchanges. The company is run by Sechin and Kovalchuk.

            However, Electric Networks of Armenia CJSC is still owned by the Dutch company Interenergo BV, a daughter of INTER RAO UES. But with the owners of the daughter is a big mystery: 59,8 percent of the shares of "Interenergo" belong to "unknown persons."

                      Nagorno-Karabakh only wanted to reunite with its historical homeland, having before its own eyes the example of Nakhichevan, when during the formation of the Nakhichevan Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic there were half the population there, and in 1988, that is, at the beginning of the movement for the reunification of Karabakh with Armenia, there was only one small Armenian village.

And the Nakhchivan Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic was formed exclusively for the destruction of the Armenian people. This is precisely what terry nationalism is called, from which National Socialism is within reach.

                      But I strongly disagree with your conclusions about Karabakh.
                      This is a difficult topic and I do not want polemics, especially within the framework of this forum.
                      Karabakh for the Armenians ... well, without exaggeration ... about like Crimea for the Russians. Well oh well about that ...
                      The Union didn’t overwhelm Karabakh. The Karabakh issue, like Transnistria, etc. could be solved without collapse. You yourself know that there are a lot of factors. Here the West also had a hand in doubt, and the rotten domestic nomenclature (for example, represented by Yakovlev) and the inept economic policy under Gorbachev ... etc. etc.
                      But now wave your fists. We should all keep at least what is left. Save and develop.
                      You must admit that there are still many pitfalls ahead of us.
                      Agree that a lot depends now on the internal politics of the CIS, primarily on the “first violin” - Russia.
                      Corruption is gnawing at the foundations not only of the Russian state, but of all the other former allies. And it needs to be eliminated.
                      Economic and cultural ties need to be strengthened.
                      In a word, it is not necessary to destroy the remnants of what we inherited.

                        Is it nothing that Armenia already since 1991 is an independent state and this alliance of precisely independent states? Maybe you’ll sort out your domestic politics yourself? It’s enough from Russia that within the framework of the Collective Security Treaty Organization they have signed up to harness for Armenia in the case of EXTERNAL aggression, do not propose fighting in Karabakh, since Armenia itself does not consider it to be de jure. If anyone is the same Azerbaijanis, they will bomb Yerevan, then yes .

                        Not really. To date, your comparison of Karabakh and Crimea probably has a right to exist, but at that time, I recall, we lived in one Soviet country. If we had lived in it further, Crimea as a part of Ukraine would not have been satisfied only with obvious scumbags. As for the Union, naturally I do not consider Karabakh to be the main cause, it is rather a consequence.

                      That is, in your words, the Armenians should have turned the head against the defenders of the Armenian people in Karabakh from aggression of the Azerbaijani armed forces, riot police, and militarized gangs? What a twist!
                      You should teach the history of the division of Armenia, Karabakh and Nakhichevan, what remains of the latter, what was done by the Soviet Azerbaijani rulers in Karabakh, how quite legally the Armenians repeatedly appealed to the Moscow capital of the USSR, where these appeals were sent, etc.
                      Be patient, the Armenian people, squeezing out of their native land, otherwise the Union will fall apart through YOUR fault. And today - be patient, the Armenian people, all the increases, the entire dictatorship of the monopolists, otherwise something else will happen through your fault. Cute.

    The “black line” between Russia and a significant part of the country's population went after the Armenian family of Avetisyan, seven people, including children of two years and six months, was killed in Gyumri on January 12, 2015. A terrifying tragedy occurred in the morning.


    Something the author observes .... we also have a fact on July 13, 2003, when the KAMAZ driver knew which ethnicity intentionally killed 18 of our old men, women and men, and 60 people were injured and from this inflate the ethnic conflict as well as in GYUMRE. ... crime .... specific people should be held accountable for their crimes.

    As for the electric Maidan, we must first figure out who owns the electricity generating capacities of ARMENIA, which set electricity prices.

    the whole insanity of the situation lies in the fact that the rebellious oni-maydauns of the Khachikyan people: they are going to protest in Yerevan against rising tariffs and waving EU flags at the same time - the rebels of Moishe Khachikyan, Michel Khachikyan, Hans Khachikyan and Johnny with Giovanni Khachikyan .. who are in exile abroad West (Israel) 80% of power generation


    20 percent of the electricity generating capacity belongs to Russian companies .... so it’s clear where the wind is blowing.

      The driver of KamAZ didn’t intentionally kill 18 people, the brakes didn’t fail at the car, he was not a military man, at the time of the collision the driver dumped KamAZ on his side to avoid a collision, if he hadn’t done this, there could be more victims, I offer my condolences to the relatives of the victims, but no one in Armenia is fanning an ethnic conflict over a psycho soldier, it’s just that people then demanded that the soldier be judged in Armenia by the Armenian judiciary, but I have a slightly different opinion that the soldier Permyakov in Armenia will be tried and whether, for example, in Perm, he would still be given a life sentence in both cases, and he would not be able to return the dead.

    "An agreement on the sale and purchase of an energy facility was concluded in January 2014 in Yerevan between the government of Armenia, Vorotan Hydroelectric Power Plant Complex, American companies ContourGlobal Hidrocaskade and CG Solutions Global Holding) ...
    ... The amended and supplemented agreement on the sale and purchase of the property of the "Vorotan Cascade HPP" company was signed on June 8 in Yerevan ... "

    But what kind of protest is there, what clashes? After the seated were dispersed by water cannons, everything calmed down, only the media was being pumped up. Nobody is building a barricade there (garbage cans are symbolic), they don’t plant vegetables on the lawns, they don’t put up tents, they don’t burn bonfires. People from both the protesters and the police calmly move through the cordon back and forth and communicate peacefully with each other and journalists. All this is more reminiscent of festivities, rather than protests. This is Armenia, not Hohland.

    Here is the broadcast from Marshal Baghramyan, in total, 50-300 people will be drawn up by the protesters, depending on the time of day:

    In 2016, the operation of a nuclear plant in Armenia may cease, and it produced almost a third of the electricity. Apparently, the Armenian authorities are trying to take some measures to modernize the hydropower industry in order to somehow compensate for the decrease in electricity output. Probably it was necessary to carry out explanatory work more understandable for the people. But nevertheless, to do it again at the expense of Russia. Themselves should take care of their energy.

        As for the leave, is it you joking, or from ignorance of how to hurt write, or what? laughing Forgive me, but "yours" here are "like mud", and there is still a rod, and there are a lot of arrogant visitors from Kavakaz, which is already beginning to strain us locals a little bit. And no one from the Russian Federation is going to leave them, you can't knock out a gun! So tell these tales to someone else. lol
        And finally ... if really we Russians are to blame for everything bad there, and you there, in Armenia, can still drive a wedge between our people and the Armenians (which I personally don’t believe in), then it’s quite possible will cause a quite adequate response from the Russians, Russians, then hold on! bully The Ukrainians, too, do not believe that they will regurgitate it, but it is already burping. For the time being, they are not being slaughtered in the doorways for their filthy mova, but quite so soon they may start slaughtering like pigs! Do you want Armenians from Russia to be driven home to Armenia for hungry bread, so what? fellow Then you’ll bite your elbows if the taoke happens, but it will be too late, dear.
        In general, it should be embarrassing to write such a thing that you are deducing here, after all that Russia has given you, the Armenians, for all the history of our offices. relationship made. We wouldn’t, if there wouldn’t be such a people as the Armenians now, only in the books of history would there be a mention, or single copies where they remained, as, for example, today the representatives of the Indian tribe Novaho in North America.

          I'm sorry, but you're delusional. Where did I write about this? The aggressive tone in this forum does not come from the "Armenian flag" badge.

There are a large number of mixed families, not to mention the friendly and friendly relations between representatives of the Armenian and other peoples of the South of Russia.

    Economically, the situation is as follows:

    The profit growth of Inter RAO in the Armenia segment for the first quarter of 2015 amounted to 2,3 billion rubles (65,3%), up to 5,7 billion rubles. This “success” is explained by an increase in the electricity tariff in Armenia in August 2014, according to the decision of the tariff regulator, as well as an increase in the exchange rate of the Armenian dram against the ruble.

    For comparison:

    The increase in revenue in the Turkey segment by 2,4 billion rubles (60,1%), to 6,4 billion rubles, was due to the growth of the US dollar against the ruble. At the same time, the volume of output remained unchanged, and the selling price for consumers decreased under the influence of the fuel component.

    A slight increase in technological fuel costs by 0,5 billion rubles (1,3%), to 40,0 billion rubles, is due to a combination of multidirectional factors. In particular, the significantly increased fuel costs at the Trakya stations in Turkey and Mtkvari Energy in Georgia due to the growth of the US dollar, in which gas supply contracts are nominated, to the ruble. At the same time, fuel consumption by Russian power plants decreased due to a 2% decrease in branches of OJSC Inter RAO - Electric Power Plants and BGK LLC by 4,5% compared to the same period last year, as well as due to the redistribution of the load in favor of the most effective stations.

    Foreign assets showed EBITDA growth of 1,5 billion rubles (2,5 times), up to 2,5 billion rubles. In particular, the EBITDA of the Armenia segment increased due to a decrease in the costs of purchased Electric Networks of Armenia CJSC, and the Turkey segment due to a decrease in the cost of fuel consumed while the output was constant and due to compensation by the state of the unclaimed power of the station.

    Note that costs rose in Turkey and Georgia, while tariffs rose in Armenia.

    http://www.interrao.ru/press-center/news/?ELEMENT_ID=4502

    Doubts about the activity of the Energy Systems of Armenia did not appear now.

    - In 2012, an audit of this company was conducted, and by the results it was clear that the enterprise was unhealthy, that it needed reforms. We held parliamentary hearings on this subject. But the enterprise did not go for reforms. They raised tariffs last year, this year they decided to increase again, and if everything remains the same, then next year they will increase prices again.

    Within a month after it became known about the plans of the monopolist, this topic was exaggerated in the Armenian press. The cited data is that the monopolist has spent "over the past 4 years huge funds for renting expensive mansions and apartments in Yerevan", half a million dollars last year went only to "communication services", half a million dollars a month were paid for renting 21 cars.

    “The company complains about huge debts, but at the same time rents limousines, mansions at prices that are much higher than the average market,” adds Hayk Khalatyan. - Moreover, it leases from some strange one-day firms.

    When the government nevertheless announced that electricity prices would rise again, people could not stand it and went out into the street.

    “Everyone understands that rising electricity prices are rising prices for everything else,” the journalist says. - Naturally, everyone is outraged: why should we pay for the inefficiency of the company? Maybe for Russia these are the usual work schemes, and the Russians are ready to endure. But the standard of living in Russia is much higher than in Armenia, and much can be endured. And in Armenia, it hits the majority of the population very much.

    Well, what can I say, all that is happening in Armenia now, is the test of the Papuans Armenians or not. If they support the Maidan and once again buy jeans and tsoka-tsolu - there is nothing to help. Let's leave Armenia and all. Yes, Russia will have a hard time in this case - we will not be able to influence Syria and the Kurdish militia in the Middle East, but staying in a hostile country is more expensive, throwing beads in front of pigs in front of pigs. Let them live as they want, now, over the years of Yanukovych’s reign in Ukraine, they are considered the most bread-groomed among the Ukrainians, for 1 year they’ve so come to us that now, it takes 20 years to recover to the level of welfare under the reign of Yanukovych. Well and everywhere where the Maidan won, and this is Georgia, and Kyrgyzstan, and Moldova, and finally, Ukraine - everywhere in these countries, simple hard workers did not live better.

      Relations between Russia and Armenia are held together by MUTUAL INTERESTS.
      And there are no other arguments. Everything else is derivative.
      Just look through the history ... starting from campaigns in this region of the Russian army since the time of Peter I.
      It is not a matter of sympathy, but of the historically worked out geopolitical “scales” / interests. And the point.
      As for the current protest in Armenia ...
      In the interests of Russia is a stable political, social life in Armenia. No shakes are beneficial to anyone. Even our current power. After all, Russia does not have small assets, a military base, a military training ground, etc. etc.
      The problem is the greed of local corrupt officials, "singing in unison" with the owners of large enterprises. It doesn’t matter, a Russian company or, say, a French one. And also in mediocre management. Just promote this topic - you’ll figure it out yourself.
      At the moment there is a backstage bargaining - to whom to sell “Electric Networks of Armenia” CJSC
      for how much and what is the rollback (naturally).
      What kind of "maidan" (!), A change in geopolitical course are we talking about? The ordinary division of the dough.
      And the people ... - he is the people. As always in Pahat .. and as always in the cold.
      So ... those who are now protesting there ... they are defending the rights of the taxpayer, both Armenian and Russian.
      See the root, as advised by Kozma Prutkov and BDI!

        Do you need to be commander in chief? And didn’t go out of nowhere? The feeling is that we’ll kind of do what we want, and you (why? And why?) So all this is necessary that in any way you will not leave. Let's leave - as an option - everything can easily be.
        “Let's leave, do it this way, do it like that -“ and if they don’t take it, we will turn off the gas! ”Well, what’s not serious? Relations between Russia and Armenia are sealed by MUTUAL INTERESTS.
        And there are no other arguments. Everything else is derivative. Just look through the history ... starting from campaigns in this region of the Russian army since the time of Peter I. The case is not in sympathy, but historically worked out geopolitical "scales" / interests. And the point.
        As for the current protest in Armenia ... It is in Russia's interests to have a stable political, social life in Armenia. No shaking is beneficial to anyone. Even our current government. After all, Russia has many assets here, a military base, a military training ground, etc. etc."
        And now we are changing Armenia to Ukraine and what is the difference? And where is MUTUAL INTEREST now? And arguments appeared, which no one expected. And we are leafing through history ... Oh, no, we are already rewriting ... And a stable and contented "brother" -neighbor is needed ... That's where the money was thrown in ... And what? Yes, on x ... "bro" is on the geopolitical scales. He rides. He has no time to think. And where is everything now?
        But with the second part - I agree. It.
        "Behold, as Kozma Prutkov and BDI advised!"
        Look here. That’s all if ... then maybe ... And so .. And the root is too painfully branchy. You’ll understand where the hell is growing.
        I would like you guys on Baghramyan to really be VACIOUS, and not turn everything into horse racing. Good luck.

    Yerevan Maidan: who is shaking Armenia?
    Maybe you should ask the Armenians?

      That's what men are. I can add that after an increase in electricity ... they will instantly raise literally everything. Robbery.

          Restless what
          We have electricity prices, after the announced increase may become higher than in Moscow.
          Nobody tells anyone what the price of electricity should be. People seek civil rights, consumer rights in this country, and not abroad.

            Moscow is far from the highest prices .... (we have more than Moscow .... PFD) export prices should be higher inside Russia - and rightly so!

              You are off topic here ... trying to set fire. Armenia itself is an exporter of electricity, not an importer.
              Do you have a higher education? Or will it be soon?

          Should not.

          However, the whole joke is that not in Armenia the prices are lower than adequate, but that in Russia it is higher.

              The fact that in Russia prices higher is certainly to blame for Russia (in the sense of a capitalist state, and not in the sense of a country).

    Events on Baghramyan are developing rapidly, but theatrical smoke is gradually dissipating. Yes, in some places this is a high-quality, but very risky statement with the holy goal for the Armenians - to milk Russia and squeeze out “Electric Networks”.
    The “No to Robbery” activists who escaped the President’s whistle from Baghramyan to continue the social revolution on Freedom Square are professional animators who organize mass protests by non-violent seizure of power. The USA really liked the idea, it was they who trained the animators, which is why all the NGOs, the media, organizations and race parties funded by them competed in throwing dirt into a “hated rashka”. By the way, did anyone see who is sitting in the ambulance and where are the activist leader Vaginak Shushanyan constantly taken to?
    There are also flaws. Well, first of all, the methods of “color” revolutions are so effective, and the people are so trusting that everything, as it were, could end up completely disastrous. It’s just that the level of the protest potential of the Armenian society is not fully understood in the Sargsyan’s administration. Secondly, friendship with the West is like a deal with the devil. Well, about the Vorotan hydroelectric power station sold to Americans and the three-fold increase in the price of electricity generated by it, it was somehow at the wrong time that some remembered. How amusing the US ambassador babbled and twisted about the cascade (the keys weren’t given yet, not to do with us, but a three-fold increase is not considered without keys).
    I really like unexpected endings in films and I really do not like when those in power think that they can even outsmart the Lord.
    Moscow, wake up! Save your property! Redirect the 150-million loan allocated to the Armenian NPP for its own asset. Investigate. Bibina to Moscow and let him hand over all the Armenian bureaucrats who videotaped the company for the past year and a half. As they say, regardless of ranks and titles. So that the list of all non-paying companies (and to whom they belong) does not seem enough. And vice versa, who forced small hydropower plants to buy electricity at inflated prices (surname). Create a powerful security service, combine it with SCR and Gazprom, so that not one reptile crawls. Open your own media in Armenia to cover Armenian corruption. As it turned out, tens of millions in fixed assets are of no interest to anyone, everyone lives in a virtual world formed by controlled media (this, by the way, is much cheaper).
    And money can be given to Armenians only after conducting a polygraph survey of Shushanyan and his cheerful team.

    In general, with respect to the protest, the Armenians were great, they could not stand it. Nefig let the oligarch capitalists take the last penny from the people. And the fact that enemies are trying to take advantage of the trouble, read the USA, is a completely different issue.





    No need to bring people to the handle!
