Pashinyan’s interview to Russian RBK media / AM-RU relations / Margo Simonyan & Aliyev
the pricey chief
Aliyev’s rhetoric acquired militaristic months earlier than the clashes, and every week earlier, he threatened to exit peace talks, saying that the world as a complete has moved to make use of pressure to unravel issues.
You gotta ax your self, why did Aliyev assault Armenia and never Artsakh?
Per week earlier than the assault, AZ army admitted that they cannot assault Karabakh as a result of Armenians put in night-vision and different cameras throughout the border [with the help of U.S. diaspora, as stated by Zakir Hasanov]. Plus there are lots of Azeri villages close to the Karabakh border. It was arduous to assault Karabakh.
So that they selected the Armenian border with “fewer cameras” and fewer Azeri villages on the border.
gotta show it
For years, Aliyev promised Azeri residents to unravel the Karabakh battle with struggle. After spending billions of $ on the army, he needed to show it wasn’t all in useless.
I’ve mentioned this earlier than: do not use the language of threats in opposition to Armenia. However they stored insisting they’ve a superior military and may take Karabakh in 24 hours.
They created this fable for 15 years. Now the parable is gone, so that they’re livid. The parable is gone as a result of the Armenian military dealt a heavy blow, one thing that not even sure circles inside Armenia thought could be attainable.
The army modernizations of the previous 2 years have paid off.
Turkey vs Russia
Turkey has a purpose to manage the South Caucasus. They’re pouring gasoline on the fireplace. Russia performed a key function to stabilize the area.
Many Armenians surprise why Turkey overtly helps Azerbaijan, whereas Russia – a army companion of Armenia – does not do the identical for Armenia. Right here now we have to do not forget that Russia is an OSCE member.
Russia continues to be on this area for geopolitical causes.
Indignant Մարգո տոտա
Q: some folks in Russia (RT propagandist Margarita Simonyan) say that Russia may need supplied extra assist if Armenia acknowledged Crimea as a part of Russia.
Pashinyan: first time I hear that. No such discussions in official or non-official boards. Armenia hasn’t even acknowledged the independence of Karabakh. It is inappropriate to carry up Crimea.
the place does Robik slot in all this?
Q: Margo Simonyan complains that you simply arrested Russia’s ally Robert Kocharyan.
Pashinyan: Russia has to appreciate that Russia’s allies aren’t Kocharyans, Pashinyans, or different people or clans, however fairly the Armenian folks.
Each rumor that Armenia would abandon Russia post-revolution turned out to be false.
The “anti-Russian” NGOs that function in Armenia that Margo Tota complaints about, have additionally operated below the RoboSerj administrations which have been thought-about “pro-Russian”. Why have been they allowed to function?
CSTO was balanced in its rhetoric. We did not petition for army support. We knowledgeable them about clashes.
ethnic clashes in Moscow
Armenians did not begin it. It began when the Azeri market banned Armenians, adopted by bodily clashes, that are a results of 15-year-long hateful rhetoric in Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan needs to destabilize Russia.
Karabakh’s function in negotiations
If Ilham does not need Karabakh to be a part of negotiations and needs Armenia to symbolize Karabakh, which means he accepts that Karabakh is a part of Armenia (4D mind-chess proper right here, of us).
I am not gonna speak to Ilham till the tensions ease.
BTW, Armenians and Azeris ought to cease combating on the web.

Diaspora Committee chief Zareh Sinanyan: the civilian assaults have been sponsored by Turkey and carried out by Azerbaijan. Each nation handles these crimes in a different way. The U.S. is investigating the college incident as an remoted assault, whereas the work achieved by Russian authorities is broader. Issues look like below management.
There was baseless criticism that our workplace did not do sufficient to unite the diaspora in the course of the assaults. Individuals might not be knowledgeable about what we do. When issues occur in different nations, our actions on their land should be rigorously thought-out.
