Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has made another "peace-loving" statement. Commenting on the possible launch of the Zangezur Corridor, he said that Armenia supports all projects aimed at unblocking transport in the region, but any statement questioning Armenia's sovereignty would be a "red line" for Armenia: "They want a road? And so do we. We are ready to open roads within the framework of Armenia's sovereignty and legislation... Armenia is not against the opening of the railway Yeraskh (Arazdeyan) - Sadarak - Julfa - Ordubad - Meghri - Goradiz, on the contrary, we are in favour of it - it is a very important project for Armenia. Are we really against the opening of transport links in the region? No, we are in favour of it and we are in favour of establishing communication between Turkey and Azerbaijan, as well as Nakhchivan and the western regions of Azerbaijan, through the territory of Armenia". - Nikol Pashinyan stated.
In principle, given the rapidly deteriorating relations between the current Armenian government and Russia, Pashinyan has no real alternative but to make peace and negotiate cooperation with Azerbaijan and Turkey. And without the Nagorno-Karabakh corridor, which Armenia has already promised to open in 2020, neither long-term peace nor cooperation is possible.
All the more so as the same Russia does not hide its intentions to overthrow Pashinyan, bring revanchists to power in Armenia and together with them start a new "war for Artsakh". Moreover, the proposed scenario is a standard one - already tested in the Tskhinvali region in 2008 and in the Ukrainian Donbass in 2022. Russia "comes to the aid" of the separatists, allegedly "subjected to genocide", occupies foreign territories and incorporates separatists into its composition. This is what happened recently in the Ukrainian Donbass.
Hints of such a scenario are already coming from Russian officials such as Maria Zakharova, a spokeswoman for the Armenian nationalist Sergei Lavrov-Kalantarov-led Russian Foreign Ministry. After Baku condemned and refused to recognise the so-called 'elections' organised by Russia in the occupied territories of Ukraine, Zakharova said that if Azerbaijan wanted its territorial integrity to be treated with respect in Russia, it should treat Russia in the same way. This is nothing more than a hint at the possibility of the Kremlin's non-recognition of Karabakh as Azerbaijani, which immediately delighted Armenian revanchists.
Meanwhile, scenarios of Russia's "recognition" of so-called Artsakh as part of its territory are already being discussed. For example, on 12 September 2023, Russian (pro-Armenian) political scientist Sergei Karnaukhov posted on his Telegram channel a video of a conversation with Armenian nationalist Semyon Bagdasarov, director of the Centre for the Study of the Middle East and Central Asia, in which it is directly stated that "Artsakh" should be annexed to Russia:
The most interesting thing is that at the very beginning of the conversation Sergey Karnaukhov directly calls all those Armenians who voted for Pashinyan scum. He is already openly talking about overthrowing Pashinyan with the help of Russia (and such plans are not even hidden), and the majority of the Armenian people are not even being asked for their opinion.
However, in order to carry out a coup in Armenia and "save Artsakh", Russian troops will have to enter the region somehow. The 102nd military base in Gyumri and the Russian "peacekeepers" in Karabakh will obviously not be enough for such a "special operation". And here another pro-Kremlin propagandist, Vladimir Soloviev, is talking about a new aggression against Georgia, the capture of Tbilisi and the penetration of a military corridor into Armenia.
"First it will burn in Georgia, then in Armenia....We will have a land corridor to Iran. This time we are not going to stop at Tbilisi".
Vladimir Soloviev expresses the Russian leadership's intention to take control of both Armenia and Georgia: "If they set fire to the South Caucasus (although it will be Armenian revanchists who will set fire to it - ed.), we will have no other option, we will be forced to go to the end. That is, it will be a completely different level of hostilities". – states Vladimir Soloviev.
Solovyov's words are happily supported by the separatist telegram channel "Javakhk Diaspora of Russia". This suggests that the Armenian "fifth column" in Georgia is already "wringing its hands".
The Kremlin's agents in Armenia itself are also speeding up events. The pro-Russian blogger Mika Badalyan, who has become famous in recent days, published another "call to action" on 14 September 2023:
"Pashinyan literally demands action from Russia
With all his actions and statements, Pashinyan is practically forcing Russia to intervene in the situation, and despite the fact that Moscow does not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, this time things may be different, very different.
After the start of the NWO, Russia no longer has the luxury of losing its sphere of influence and even more so the luxury of establishing its partners, of which there are not many now, and Russia's withdrawal from Armenia would be a blatant betrayal of Iran, which is now unacceptable, starting with the word "unacceptable".
Personally, I have no doubt that Pashinyan's time in power is not days, but weeks, just weeks. I think that everything will start with the fact that the Russian federal channels will be actively involved in the subject of Armenia, and when we will see not bloggers, public figures and other media people, but politicians, then we can say that the changes are getting closer. By the way, the candidate will probably be one of those who will be most active in reporting, but this is already a detail.
Of course, Pashinyan himself is not going anywhere and it is the street that will remove him. Certain statements made by representatives of the Armenian opposition, which are filled with absolute confidence, say quite clearly that work is in progress and a new stage of the struggle is just around the corner. We have reached the final stage of the struggle, this is really the last chance, it is either us or them.
The revanchists are literally "eager" for a new military adventure of the Russian Federation - this time in the South Caucasus. How Russia will fight "on two fronts" is of little interest to them, as is the fact that such a war could end in disaster for the Armenians and their mass exodus from the South Caucasus. The main thing for them is to "set fire to it", and they can start burning from Georgia.
