What, precisely, is controversial about Putin’s Nagorno Karabakh policy? I’m honestly getting sick of A&A’s take on this issue. Yerevan was full of Armenian men from Nagorno karabakh, who escaped conscription, instead of defending their homes, and we are told Putin should have done more. Armenia itself didn’t send in a single soldier to protect its own people; why, then should Russia have done any more than it did?

Just another “swing and a miss” by a British Greek, lol… the game is still Britain against Russia, as it has been for the past 500 years, or so…

Brits are so suicidal. A dead empire latching on to a dying empire.

What’s controversial? Saakashvili was NOT invited to join the new Armenian administration. That’s clearly unacceptable.

“We are all Armenians today.”

No wait……..

“We are all Azerbaijanis today.”

The Duran is owned by Greeks so we can understand the interpretation.

The Greeks and the Turks do not get along.

The RF is in a completely different position and they are not looking for trouble.

Another viewpoint, readers should not accept the Duran’s viewpoint without further investigation:

Of course we are looking at EURASIA so this view is interesting:

I must say the Duran appears to be unaware of the geopolitics of the region.

Remarkable.

Don’t need to read The Saker. It’s clear what’s next on the agenda. US will work some rapprochement with Turkey to needle its way into Azeri politics and then work to undermine Armenian/Russian cooperation by fueling further conflict.

Plan B of course (running simultaneously no doubt) is to fund Armenians angry over capitulation along with some well-chosen thugs as provocateurs to stir up more trouble. It worked in ’53 in Iran and 2014 in Ukraine and dozens of times in between, so if the technique ain’t broke, no need to fix it.

They’ll simultaneously line the pockets of Armenians angry over the capitulations, and those in power.

Russian interest in Turkey can only be fully understood by:
1.Realisng that under a Biden administration that Nord Stream 2 completion may be frozen well into the future.
2.Understanding that TurkStream is going to be a needed alternative in the interim (likely supplying through Southern Europe) and something which could put pressure on EU to resist US and allow NS2 completion.

Of course Russian will continue to expand gas/oil pipeline exports to China as well as increasing LNG exports by sea. However, Turkstream is vital in terms of lowering transit through Ukraine and getting a further pipeline into Europe.

If I were at the helm in Russia, I’d consider using western tactics (esp. the Brits) and send in some folks to blow up the Ukrainian pipeline, preceded by some internet activity resurrecting Ukie-nazi Yarosh’s threats to do exactly that. Just as a reminder to the EU of how thoroughly unstable Ukie transit really is.

Good strategy. Russia could do with such tactics in a number of theatres.
