Armenian cell on the "Great Chessboard"



In September, 1998, the measured silence of the world book market, blew up the publication of books under an extravagant title that speaks for itself. The “Great Chessboard”, the author of which is the unforgettable Zbigniew Brzezinski, became for the XXI century something of the memorable “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, which appeared a century earlier. In his work, former adviser to US President Jimmy Carter, whose pathological Russophobia is akin to Winston Churchill’s anti-Soviet, openly identified what was still hidden under a bushel — the ideological concept of American foreign policy for the next half century in its quest for world hegemony. And, in his deep conviction, “Eurasia, where 75% of the population lives and where three quarters of all world energy resources are located, is the key to world domination”.

IN ANTHROUGH ANCIENTS VENTURES

With the collapse of the USSR, the geopolitical struggle for sole dominance on the Eurasian continent entered a crucial phase. In the context of the “battle for Eurasia”, the actions of the United States are aimed primarily at strengthening its presence in its key regions, among which the South Caucasus is a priority. According to domestic political analysts, the American “hawks” view it as a geostrategic core connecting Europe and the Middle East with Central Asia and Afghanistan. At a time when, on one side of the Atlantic, Belovezhskaya “funeralists” hammered the last nail into the coffin of the late Soviet Union, on the other - in the depths of the leading US analytical centers, an ideological strategy was born to curb its main geopolitical competitors in the Eurasian space, called “Anaconda”.

One of its founding fathers, Colonel John Chicky, a US military officer, described this geo-strategic as a very effective way of compressing the geopolitical space by expanding the network of military bases and deploying a missile defense system. Why are the Americans not concealing their growing interest in the territories south of the Main Caucasian Range, which, according to the statements of their high-ranking visitors, are not only the main link in the light of Brzezinski's Eurasian reflections, but also a springboard for confronting with their main (which is no longer hidden) geopolitical the enemy is the Russian Federation.

The current contender for the presidency in the White House, Hillary Clinton, when she was secretary of state on the Financial Times pages in December 2012, clearly defined the vital priorities of the United States in this geo-strategic direction: “There is a movement towards re-Sovietisation of the region. It will not be called that way. It will be called the Customs Union, it will be called the Eurasian Union and everything like that. We will not be mistaken about this. We know what the goal was, and we are trying to develop effective ways to slow down or prevent it. ”

It is not surprising that, as the use of a springboard for compressing the vital space of the Russian Federation and Iran, the main competitors of the United States in the South Caucasus, the Anaconda strategy is coordinated with the plans of the State Department pointing, for example, to Armenia. On our partner in the CSTO and the Customs Union. It should be noted that the Russian Federation and the Republic of Armenia are also linked by a long-standing strategic partnership within the framework of the closest military cooperation in the form of a long-term presence in the territory of the last contingents of the Russian Armed Forces deployed at the 102 base in Gyumri. However, at the very beginning of the dashing 90s of the last century, Americans were the first to rush to officially recognize the independent existence of this Transcaucasian republic, opening the largest American embassy in Yerevan at that time (based on the number of staff at the then diplomatic mission).

In addition, after the establishment of bilateral relations in the US Congress, on the initiative of two congressmen, Democrat Frank Pallone and Republican Edward Porter, a group called “Armenian Cauccus” was founded, now uniting more than fifty influential American politicians. The initial phase of the US-Armenian state relations was to provide humanitarian and financial assistance to the latter-day public education and to the de facto recognition of the independence of the United States by Nagorno-Karabakh. For this, a whole series of legislative steps were taken in the citadel of world democracy.

Thus, in 1992, amendments to the “Act in support of freedom” came into effect, which categorically forbade any support for Azerbaijan and allowed to implement the resolution adopted at that time on rendering financial assistance to Nagorno-Karabakh. In November 1997 of the year, another similar legislation was enacted providing, among other things, additional financial assistance to the self-proclaimed Transcaucasian Republic in the amount of 12 million dollars. Thus, the US today, not recognizing de jure the right of the Karabakh Armenians to create their own independent state, in fact, it is the only country in the world that provides them with financial and humanitarian support at the level of interstate relations through the United States-Armenia line.

But at the same time, in the customary Anglo-Saxon tradition of double standards, Americans are in no hurry to recognize the genocide of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire during the First World War at the federal level. By the way, it is a very painful and burning question that concerns the Armenian diaspora all over the world. Currently it is recognized in 44 US states from 50 cash. But this is a poor consolation for those who think that Armenians are not tempted by free cheese from overseas mousetraps. This was especially evident during the recent aggravation of the Armenian-Azerbaijani relations around Nagorno-Karabakh, to which the Russian and Armenian blogosphere responded with recriminations. The characteristic claims of Russians were voiced by blogger Alexei Artsakhov in his article “It's Time for Armenians to Decide” posted on the Russian Spring Internet resource. While his correspondent opponent, one Tevos Arshakyan, called his “CSTO Allies betrayed Armenia” on the site of the Armenian Report. It is as if some conditional sections of public opinion of interested parties in the public opinion of both countries, not claiming the right to be the ultimate truth.

But for a more complete understanding of the situation, a slight digression should be made. Another Russian philosopher Vasily Rozanov wrote: "Without Russia, the peoples of the Caucasus switch to each other like chickens without a hen." In this case, one should keep in mind the Russian factor in the elimination of local contradictions in its traditional sense, and not something that was thoughtlessly put into practice at the local level in the Soviet period stories. And, of course, not the inconsistency and toothlessness of the Caucasian policy of the Russian Federation, or rather, its absence at all during the reign of Boris Yeltsin as its first president. Unfortunately, the relapses of that era have not been eradicated to this day. Although the awareness of the need for the military-political presence of the Russian Federation south of the Main Caucasus Range is finally being understood in the corridors of the Kremlin.

Therefore, the Armenian leadership can be understood. Being in a hostile environment and looking at how, in a relatively recent period, Russia's foreign policy doctrine was inconsistently and rashly lined up under the influence of the pro-Western lobby in its government, the political leadership in Yerevan begins to "mow a lilac eye" towards overseas partners. So, in July 2009, an impressive overseas delegation visited Armenia, which included representatives of the Pentagon and the command of all branches of the US troops in Europe and the National Guard of Kansas. They paid a visit to the Drastamat Kananyan Institute for Strategic Studies at the local Ministry of Defense. During the meeting of guests, the director of this venerable institution, Advisor to the Minister of Defense of Armenia, Major General Hayk Kotanjian, highly appreciated the active participation of American colleagues in the interdepartmental coordination of the development of the national security strategy of his country and attached great importance to the willingness of Americans to strengthen and deepen cooperation with Armenian security forces.

Thus, Armenia is balancing on the brink, maintaining a strategic partnership with the Russian Federation, and at the same time receiving support from the United States, participating in NATO peacekeeping programs. This may seem strange and even suspicious to some, but in the context of the unfolding “Battle of Eurasia”, official Yerevan’s desire to expand cooperation with the United States and the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance to prevent its traditional, sworn friends of Turkey and Azerbaijan from using NATO’s resources in contentious issues It looks quite logical. Meanwhile, such a development of events cannot but affect the further development of the strategic partnership between Armenia and the Russian Federation. Why should official Moscow clearly enough place its Transcaucasian foreign policy accents, preferably on a long-term basis, methodically and consistently promote its own projects at the local level, reflecting the fundamental provisions of mutually beneficial cooperation of both countries as guarantors of the peaceful development of the South Caucasus. The history of centuries-old Russian-Armenian relations speaks in favor of this statement.

NEW COURSE IN ACTION


Since the United States recognized the independence of Armenia 25 December 1991 of the year and established diplomatic relations with it 7 January 1992, not so many years have passed from the point of view of interstate relations of these two countries. If we take the number of visits of high-ranking officials of official Yerevan of the highest rank over the ocean during this period, then this figure is impressive. Almost every year, one of the top three leaders of the Armenian Republic — the president, the prime minister, or the head of the foreign affairs agency — visited the United States on an official visit.

The overseas envoys of official Washington were represented by figures of the Secretary of State, often his deputies, and even assistants. US Secretary of State James Baker was the first foreign minister of the United States to visit Armenia on February 1992 in February. The current contender for a seat in the White House, Hillary Clinton, being the head of the foreign ministry twice, made a voyage to Yerevan in July 2010 and June 2012. Among US visitors, we will find US Undersecretary of State for Europe and Eurasia Victoria Nuland, who has already received worldwide fame on the events in Kiev’s Maidan, who appeared in Armenia 18 February 2015 of the year at the head of a representative delegation of the State Department.

All this time, the main driving force behind the development of bilateral Armenian-American relations has been and remains constantly increasing trade and economic ties. For this, the Americans abolished the corresponding Jackson – Vanik amendments, which prohibited the sale of high technologies and appropriated the status of “permanent normal trade relations” to Armenia in 2004. With the active mediation of the United States, a number of international financial institutions, primarily the IMF, carried out a complex of long-term credit and grant programs totaling about $ 1 billion. For such a small country in the territory and population of Armenia, this figure is quite solid, to say the least. .

The contractual and legal framework of the official relations between official Washington and Yerevan looks impressive. Armenia, as noted above, is increasingly cooperating with the United States and NATO in the sphere of defense and security - the main trump cards of the Americans, which they unsuccessfully play in almost all parts of the world they like. A relatively recent delegation of overseas visitors, led by Assistant US Deputy Secretary of Defense Evelyn Farkas, came to Yerevan in February 2015 relatively recently. During the meeting with Armenian Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan, it was stated that the Armenian-American cooperation in the military sphere is carried out and dynamically developed in an atmosphere of transparency and mutual trust. But such boasts of the overseas empire at their potential victims have not been news, but only a tribute to the military-diplomatic protocol, behind which the brutal grin of American neo-colonialism is peeped with the naked eye.

In turn, the leadership of our partner in the CSTO faithfully fulfills its obligations, imposed by contractual relations with overseas partners. First of all, in terms of holding “clean elections” and politically eliminating any influence on local authorities of the local oligarchic clans, especially those who have strong economic ties with the Russian Federation. In the local political jargon, such tactical tricks of the Armenian establishment were called the “new course”. But this does not at all relieve Armenians from accusations of “dishonest play” by the Americans due to the continuing cooperation of Armenia with the Russian Federation, including in the military sphere. It is no secret that 102-I base of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in Gyumri is like a bone in the throat for Americans. Therefore, using the tactics of multilateral binding, they try to implant their Armenian partners on a military-biological igloo. And many have succeeded in this.

ON THE WRAPPED DIAGRAM


In the biolaboratories that have survived from Soviet times in Armenia, they moved to work on American programs. Reuters Photos

The Government of Armenia, at its meeting on August 26 of 2010, approved the agreement “On cooperation in preventing the spread of production technologies, pathogens and biological testing weapons"Concluded between the Armenian Ministry of Emergency Situations and the Pentagon under the program" Reducing the biological threat. " A little earlier, the US Embassy in Armenia on this occasion distributed a lengthy press release stating: “The partnerships being established within the framework of the program are aimed at universal struggle to prevent the proliferation of biological weapons. In particular, the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Armenia and the US Department of Defense will cooperate in improving the systems and procedures of biological safety, safe and uniform collection and research of harmful pathogens, as well as detection, diagnosis, registration and response to epidemics. ”

As RA Emergency Situations Minister Armen Yeritsyan stated: “The American side proposed to conclude an agreement, taking into account natural and man-made risks, the geographical position of Armenia.” According to him, the US investment in this area will amount to 9 million dollars. Subsequently, in his detailed interview with Regnum news agency in 2014, he referred to the lack of funding as a strong motive that prompted Armenian partners to throw themselves into good Uncle Sam’s arms: “Finance is never enough, no matter how many. They are always small, they are always in short supply. ” His colleague and the subordinate director of the Emergency Rescue Service of Armenia, Major-General Sergei Azaryan, with soldierly directness, stated that the agreement provides for the introduction of electronic means of controlling infectious patients, as well as the improvement of diagnostic laboratories taking into account the latest achievements of science and technology in this area, which will contribute increase the professional skills of local professionals in the industry.

He further shared the details that shed light on who is who in this project, noting the passive role of the Armenian side, while an office has been established at the US embassy to support the implementation of a program to reduce biological threats. “This once again proves how seriously the United States treat this program,” Azaryan said. “We need to understand that the program to reduce biological threats is the most important factor in raising the level of a country's national security.”

These words have more questions than answers. First of all, it concerns the passage of the chief rescuer of Armenia regarding the exclusively contemplative role of his compatriots in the matter of the material and technical support of biological security, which is actually at the mercy of American partners. However, nothing strange in this. This is exactly the way Americans behave in such cases in the entire post-Soviet space. Or did the first persons of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Armenia believe in their exclusiveness so much and think that the Yankees will act differently with them? How can you not remember the Russian folk tale about the man and the bear, who shared the tops and roots.

Americans inherited the Soviet biological objects inherited from the disintegrated USSR in the territory of Armenia since the middle of the 1990s. As usual, they are interested not only in these institutions, but also in the first place scientific research conducted in them. Here, the Yankees act in their usual manner, building interaction with local authorities on the thumbnail. They launched a number of programs that provide funding in the direction ensuring the technological safety of local bio-institutions, equipping them with high-tech equipment, safe storage of microorganism samples, consolidation of promising research programs and, of course, attracting specialists from the closed scientific community to collaborate in microbiology. Research Institute sunk into oblivion USSR.

The first sign in the sphere of interaction between the USA and Armenia on the issues of biological security was an agreement on combating the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, signed in 2000. Its actual and practical extension was the above-mentioned 2010 agreement of the year. The officially declared goal of bilateral cooperation in this area is to diagnose dangerous pathogens and create effective protection against them, to transform the state system of sanitary and epidemiological surveillance in order to minimize the risk of pandemic outbreaks. In general, everything is clear. If it were not for one "but." The main US player in the biological field of Armenia is the well-known American organization in the post-Soviet space - the Military Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).

The activities of this structural division of the Pentagon are primarily aimed at bringing the sanitary and epidemiological surveillance system of Armenia in line with American and international standards in the field of human body and animal protection, in particular with the requirements of the World Health Organization and the International Epizootic Bureau. The Agency pursues the same goal with the financing of local scientists conducting scientific studies of especially dangerous pathogens, engaged in training personnel with the aim of increasing their research level in the framework of American technological programs. This should include the supply of the latest diagnostic and other equipment, as well as ensuring its uninterrupted operation through the involvement of American experts, etc.

INSTEAD OF RECOGNITION OF ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

To implement their own programs under the 2010 US-Armenia agreement, DTRA officials have engaged the American company Black & Veatch since June 2011, whose activities in Ukraine were accompanied by a train of scandals extinguished due to the interference of US embassy officials in the internal affairs of our neighbor. This company began its work in Armenia with the fact that first of all it was engaged in the implementation at the local level of two systems for the detection, identification and elimination of biological threats: electronic complex sanitary and epidemiological surveillance of infectious diseases and control of pathogenic substances, as well as training employees of Armenian biological institutions in the correct handling with them.

At the same time, the staff of the aforementioned company provided the Republican Clinic "NORK" in Yerevan with the latest diagnostic equipment with the obligatory training of the local medical staff and the translation of technical documentation into Armenian. This was not the end. Pentagon contractors in 2015 put equipment for controlling the circulation of weapons of mass destruction and other similar threats when crossing the state border to the border service of Armenia. In the same year, the Emergencies Ministry of Armenia received special equipment from the United States in the event of a pandemic outbreak and preventing its spread. Similar resource preferences were also given to the local Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Agriculture. Officials of these departments have been trained on American standards to identify, diagnose and eliminate outbreaks of dangerous infectious diseases of natural and man-made origin.

While DTRA employees pumped the biomuscles of our CSTO ally, their colleagues from the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control of the US Department of Health put their biomostals under their full control, so to speak. It was this structure, which also settled locally in the middle of the dashing 90s of the last century, in fact filled with its content the functional responsibilities of the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the Ministry of Health of Armenia, having built at its discretion a system of sanitary and epidemiological surveillance of dangerous infectious diseases. But the main thing is not even that. The fact is that the exchange of various information between local central and regional bio-institutions, its processing took place through the Epi Info software developed and used in daily activities by the above-mentioned structure of the US Department of Health. And therefore, the whole Armenian bioprogram is under the vigilant control of Uncle Sam.

Among other US tools in the implementation of the 2010 agreement of the year is the State Science-Controlled International Science and Technology Center (ISTC), which has its structural units in Yerevan. These units are used as control and auditing bodies coordinating scientific research on this topic within the framework of bilateral cooperation. In particular, ISTC has currently provided financial assistance for the logistics of several dozen projects implemented in a dozen research institutions, most of which are concentrated in the Armenian capital.

This spring, the reconstruction of the laboratory of the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the Ministry of Health of Armenia was completed in Ijevan. The opening ceremony of 6 in April was attended by US Ambassador Richard Mills and the representative of the Pentagon’s Military Threat Reduction Agency, Lance Brooks. According to the head of the US diplomatic mission, this event is the first sign in the series of central and regional biolaboratories to be modernized as part of a program of cooperation in the biological sphere. The training conducted by personnel engaged in research in the Ijevan laboratory will enable its employees to use the acquired skills and the latest equipment very effectively in their daily activities. The US Ambassador particularly noted in his speech that the program of biological cooperation implemented by the parties is one of the largest programs implemented by the US government in Armenia.

The construction process of the central reference laboratory in Yerevan will be completed shortly. Its opening is scheduled for July of this year. In the near future, research work in another three regional biolaboratories in Lori, Gegharkunik and Syunik regions will be closed to it. Their reconstruction should be completed in 2017 year. It should also include a similar facility in Gyumri, work on which is in the final stages, which may sound like an American warning to the Russian side. After all, the local laboratory, controlled by the Americans, can bring a lot of trouble to servicemen of the 102 military base of the Russian Armed Forces.

What and what will happen next, time will tell. It seems to me that the historical memory of the Armenian people at the genetic level will sooner or later say its weighty word. Yes, and many Armenians, both living in Armenia and living outside of its borders, have long been determined by who should be considered a true friend. The one who saved them from the entire Turkish massacre exactly a century ago, or one who across the ocean still stubbornly refuses to recognize the very fact of the Armenian Holocaust.

      I don’t understand what the author of the article is trying to do by publishing such articles. I don’t understand what the US-sponsored biological laboratory can interfere with with the 102 Russian base. If the author of the article is so concerned, then let Russia sponsor such laboratories, in any case, outbreaks of epidemics in Armenia is not registered for a long time.

      The main goals of the Pentagon in this area are: to establish comprehensive control over the state of the sanitary-epidemiological situation in the region and the content of ongoing work with pathogenic microorganisms; collection of relevant biomaterials along the borders of the Russian Federation (all of their samples are transferred to the USA); study of the susceptibility of residents of the post-Soviet space to various diseases and their treatment; testing innovative medicines on ethnically heterogeneous local populations; all this with the goal of creating new biological weapons!

      Part 1
      I liked the article - it honestly says that Armenia is very necessary for the Russian Federation. And this is very rare in our relations, usually iksperdy and officials of the Russian Federation proceed from the principle, which is practically always expressed - "where will you go in such an environment?"
      The author himself gave examples of how in several areas Armenians find where to go.
      These are all manifestations of one common problem with the active and educated part of the Armenian population for Russia - Armenia has a high and renewable engineering and scientific potential, which is in demandunfortunately rivals / enemies of the Russian Federation. The author’s sphere of software must be added to the examples of the author. In Armenia, there are a huge number of software firms operating in the US market, which does not isolate Armenia from itself, despite very strict legislative restrictions in connection with technology control. In particular, Synopsys and VMWare can be cited from world-famous companies.

      Today, the Russian Federation does not properly finance even its own science, to which the situation with the RAS is an example. And in Armenia, although they do not finance their own science, the Academy of Sciences is not being smashed, but has created an additional structure for managing and financing relevant scientific activities.

        Part 2.

        The problem of using the scientific and technical potential of Armenia is part of one common problem - the inability to control Armenia and Armenians by any external force, even in good intentions from her point of view.

        I will not talk about historical examples of this problem even for the Byzantine Empire, which was the most developed and cultural country of its time, in the image and likeness of which the USA was created - VI is part of the Republic of Ingushetia, its eastern part, and always called itself simply Romans - Byzantines it is a term coined a few centuries after the extinction of the easternmost Roman Empire.
        In VI, the Armenian potential was actively used in the army and in politics - a lot (from 30% to 40%) of the Byzantine emperors were of Armenian ethnic origin, this is a well-known scientific fact. But at the same time, the VI destroyed the internal structure of Armenian society, because it continuously generated an elite that fought with Byzantine control over the country. As a result, the VI weakened the resistance of the Armenians, and the Seljuks who came in small in comparison with the local settled population did not leave anywhere else, unlike the Arabs, whom the Armenians escorted after 100-200 years.

        Such an inveterate enemy as Lawrence of Arabia spoke about the impossibility of controlling the Armenians, publicly justifying the need for the complete destruction of the Armenians in the article "These Impossible Armenians"

        The inability to control the Armenians leads to concrete and non-disappearing geopolitical problems in the Armenian-Russian relations. Trying to take control of Armenian society, in the beginning of the 20th century, RI tried to destroy the AAC, and only total civil rejection through civil disobedience in this part led to the end of this attempt. But such attempts are completely atypical for Russian diplomacy / domestic policy.


        Well, the last, extremely pragmatic argument to illustrate this impossibility to control the Armenians is that most of the Armenians, as a result of the genocide, live outside the borders of Armenia + the Russian Federation, and the size of the Armenian-controlled economy in the world is approximately equal to the size of the Turkish economy, with all the approximation of such estimates, it is indicative.

        All Armenians had and will have relatives abroad, thanks to which Armenians are very mobile in their lives - they can live 10 years in the USA, return to Armenia, and then live a couple of years in Russia. It is impossible to change this structure and mobility of the Armenian population in modern world conditions, and this mobility and globality makes it impossible to take any effective control over the Armenian society.

    This should also include a similar facility in Gyumri, the work on which is in its final stages, which may sound like an American warning to the Russian side. After all the American-controlled laboratory there can bring a lot of trouble to the military personnel of the 102nd military base of the Armed forces of the Russian Federation.
    What troubles can this laboratory bring? It will let anthrax into our base? No, but really, what could this laboratory be dangerous for our military contingent?

    Perhaps the author wanted to convey to the reader about the Armenian program for the implementation of biological safety, but somehow he got stuck in this and came to the conclusion about the Armenian genocide.
    What and what will happen next, time will tell. It seems to me that the historical memory of the Armenian people at the genetic level will sooner or later say its weighty word. Yes, and many Armenians, both living in Armenia and living outside of its borders, have long been determined by who should be considered a true friend. The one who saved them from the entire Turkish massacre exactly a century ago, or one who across the ocean still stubbornly refuses to recognize the very fact of the Armenian Holocaust.

    Oleg may seem wild and painful to you by ear, but the Armenians don’t consider us friends, they’re just a geopolitical advantageous cooperation, except for a strong Christian Russia, there’s no one else to protect them in this world and they are well aware of it, but they have a profit for the Russians and profitable business no personal sympathy NO.

          What happened in those years, you ask? There was a war in Karabakh, there was an economic blockade of Armenia, in Georgia there was a civil war between supporters of the first president of Georgia Gamsakhurdia and the irregular detachments rebelled against him under the command of Kitovani and Ioseliani. The Abkhazian railway was cut off, Abkhazia was separated from Georgia, only diplomatic relations were with Iran since there was no bridge over the Araks River, it was built later, in short, there was real hunger, cold and war in Armenia. Your relatives probably have bad memories of those times, I have the same not the best ones, but the Armenians especially who were not prejudiced, just time was perilous, a huge country fell into pieces.

      but the Armenians don’t consider us friends, it’s just just a geopolitical profitable cooperation, but they have NO personal sympathies for Russians besides profit and profitable business.

      But Russia can be thought of, it’s not thinking of its own benefit, but only out of purely friendly motives does it maintain its base in Armenia. And we have such a direct sympathy for Armenians (especially for people like you) that tears are welling up.

    Less than 10% of all Armenians live in Armenia. The rest are all over the world and in Russia. Most of all, it is supported by Russian Armenians who have not lost touch with their homeland. Armenia is a member of the CSTO. And they perfectly understand that without Russia a relapse of the 1915 genocide is possible. But someone stubbornly needs to escalate the perception of Armenia, almost as a traitor to Russia. It will not work, gentlemen, and do not be found!

      The Armenians are unwillingly allies to us. They use their lobby in Russia to resolve their issues. You can write and say anything; and about mixed marriages and about the Christian faith and about a common culture, etc. etc. But this is the only republic where the number of Russians has decreased 4 times. But we did not fight with Armenia, moreover, the Armenian diaspora has grown in number in Russia. In Armenia, there are no Russians in power structures, even at the village level, and in Russia, Armenians in all power structures. Our Foreign Ministry is headed by Tbilisi Armenian Lavrov, a good minister, president of the Association of Armenian Banks, etc. These guys take their seats everywhere and I think that if the Turks and Azerbaijanis put pressure on them. then we will have to shed the blood of Russian soldiers, for a state that is forced to be friends with us.

            Yes, this is all nonsense, I don't even worry. It's just that I just can't understand what kind of contingent prevails here. For example, I am a typical "Moscow Armenian", and in real life, in real Moscow, in real Russia, I feel like "one of my own" well, practically like Garik Martirosyan in the Comedy Club or Evgeny Petrosyan in the "Crooked Mirror". ..
            Yes, I have a Russian wife, and my sons, one is Karen, and the second is called Ivan. Yes, not a single Russian told me anything about Armenia but good ...
            And then ... Such an Armenianphobia that I am already starting to think that there are half of the Turks disguised as people, or just some kind of phantoms.

    Wait in 2018, some Hovhannisyan will win their elections there, and we will see that it turns out that Armenia was part of the Republic of Ingushetia and the USSR, it was an occupation. If there are people from Armenia on this forum, let them tell you which embassy the Russian Federation has and which the US has. So that no one would have any illusions about fraternal Armenia. And yes, I agree that only the Russian Federation is to blame for the failure of Russia's foreign policy in the CIS.

    All the same. While we are arguing whether we are friends with Armenians, relatives or simply partners, the Americans are gradually but steadily doing their job. When the time is right from their point of view, a "cognac" revolution will take place in Armenia, a pro-American government will become the head of the country, the whole world is ecstatic about this, as well as the deployment of American bases on Armenian territory, and ours will once again begin a showdown on the topic, how did this happen and who is to blame for this, only it will be too late to rush about .. Our country needs a concept, an action plan for at least a hundred years, otherwise our whole policy is reduced to responding to American actions, but we need to react much earlier, then and there will be no unnecessary actions for us.

      Finish, well done, that raised this topic. I raised it several times, got a lot of cones, but still did not get a clear answer:
      "Why is it not shameful for Mannerheim to erect a monument in St. Petersburg and to coincide its opening with the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, but Armenians should not erect a monument to Nzhdeh? Moreover, in Armenia, in their homeland. It comes out, or our hero did not come out with a snout, or the Armenians themselves are not the allies with whom one should "stand on ceremony".
      For Russia, an ally means Finland, whose national hero is erected in Russia. If this is so, then the applicant directly and demand the fulfillment of the allied duty from the Finns, and not from the Armenians.

    I can’t understand what is the meaning of this article. In fact, the author, complaining to us that the Americans are so mean, are trying to lure our ally. You see, they cooperate, they come, they help, and the Armenians are not so reliable, you look and buy American handouts, but they are stupid they don’t understand that the Americans are doing all this against Russia, and not for the sake of Armenia itself. And the Armenians should stand up proudly, spit in the vile American face, and say ... NO! We don’t need anything from you, we are only with Russia and no one else.

      Chisayna, follow each other smile .I'm in Kaliningrad "shoes with pointe shoes" winkI was not going to "sew", I now have a completely different business, I have long been tied up with shoes. But my brother has one of the businesses connected with the shoe business, he employs more than a hundred people, and he is the only Armenian among them. It's bad that Russians earn big money from an Armenian and support their families. Well, if he leaves Russia, that won't make the Russians any better.
