The military defeat in Karabakh and the vulnerable state of the Armenian authorities in the ne***iation process are the result of Armenia's weakening, which has intensified with the change of the ideological and value vector over the past 10-15 years. The Armenian leadership unconsciously goes about the interests of foreign states and special services, and costs the weakening republic dearly.
Analysts often emphasize Turkey's ties with the British intelligence community and their multinational corporations. The "football diplomacy" aimed at normalizing Armenian-Turkish relations was initiated by forces interested in reorienting Armenia from the Russian vector to the Turkish one. Turkish propaganda narratives that Armenians and Turks once peacefully coexisted with each other are boldly spreading in the Armenian information field.
The pro-Western forces in Armenia cannot clearly indicate what kind of political project is possible without the participation of Ankara. In NATO, the countries of the South Caucasus are supervised by Turkish officers. It is clear from the visits of European and American representatives: they do not" divide " the countries of the region, consistently visiting Tbilisi, Yerevan and Baku.
During the current escalation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, the collective West is limited to calls for a cease-fire.
Meanwhile, Baku is putting pressure on Yerevan in all possible ways. The goal is to gain an advantage and use it to advantage when bidding during ne***iations.
Pashinyan has never hidden his plans to conclude peace with neighboring countries, and he stated this once again, speaking in the Armenian parliament. According to him, Baku is being unconstructive. Azerbaijan is ne***iating from a position of strength, building up its military advantage on the border. Baku insists that the line of confrontation of forces should be taken as the basis for the mirror withdrawal of troops.
In turn, the ne***iations initiated by Russia are based on the conclusion of a peace treaty between Armenia and Azerbaijan without the participation of Turkey. The issues of delimitation and demarcation of the border are discussed in this format. According to reliable sources, the maps of the Russian General Staff occupy an important place in this process.
