Pashinyan's stones thrown at Ter-Petrosyan's words

Pashinyan's stones thrown at Ter-Petrosyan's words
03 November 2020

Pashinyan turned out to be not only a weak journalist and an ordinary politician, devoid of an analytical mindset. The head of the Armenian government, to whom fate once smiled at the crossroads of the clash of two modern civilisations, neglects not so much political experience as the deep mind of one of the major politicians of modern Armenia. We are talking about the alternative leader of Armenia, to whom all political forces of the country, without exception, turned to in the moments of danger hanging over the country. Of course, we are talking about the hermit of Matenadaran - Levon Ter-Petrosyan. But more on that later.

Reasons for Azerbaijan gaining military superiority on the battlefield

Reasons for Azerbaijan gaining military superiority on the battlefield
08 October 2020

The success of our diplomacy can be noticed in the military operations that started on September 27. Turkish officials unequivocally voiced their support for Azerbaijan and welcomed military assistance to our country. Russia has promised that it will not interfere in the internal affairs of its neighbours, while Iran has said it supports Azerbaijan's territorial integrity. As for the forces outside the region, such as the United States and France, their influence on the processes in the region is insignificant. The military-political situation in the South Caucasus is in favour of our state, and at this point, we must make more opportunities to ensure the sovereignty of our country in the occupied territories.

Azerbaijan-Turkey strategic alliance deepens amid recent conflicts
24 September 2020

The relationship between Azerbaijan and Turkey has been on a developing course since the very beginning of the former's post-Soviet independence, and has now arguably reached its hitherto peak. The unequivocal support by Turkish leaders to Azerbaijan amidst the escalation of its conflict with Armenia, the subsequent joint exercises and drills between their armed forces, and frequent mutual visits of high-ranking officials regardless of the pandemic are some of the highlights in the bilateral relations of the two countries in recent months. While the ethnic kinship and cultural proximity constitute the cornerstone of these bonds, these are common interests and security threats that lead the two brotherly nations toward building a strategic alliance.

Russia Versus Turkey: Drone Battles and Gas Disputes

Russia Versus Turkey: Drone Battles and Gas Disputes
18 September 2020

Russia's and Turkey's leaders have a lot in common as politicians. Both harbor grudges against their Western counterparts and are busy fostering their respective country's defiant stance in international relations. Both Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan have gotten rid of all political competition and developed their own brands of conservatism. Putin and Erdoğan would make great allies, but the two happen to be adversaries on too many fronts. Russia and Turkey are actively engaged on opposite sides of the civil wars in Syria and Libya. The South Caucasus may now become a new zone of Russian-Turkish rivalry as border tensions between Armenian and Azerbaijani started to escalate in mid-July.
