President of the Middle East Institute Evgeny Satanovsky believes that the current aggravation of the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh is the work of American officials.
The political scientist recalled that now everything located near the Russian borders is at risk of being set on fire. Kosovo demonstrated this clearly, he said, and now the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict has “thawed out.” Moreover, immediately after the visit to Yerevan of the director of the CIA William Burns:
“Why did he go there? What did the director of the CIA need in Yerevan if the conflict thawed immediately after his visit,” Satanovsky argues.
Political scientist suggested paying attention to the Asian tour Nancy Pelosiwhose arrival in Taiwan nearly provoked a US-China war. And now a veteran of American politics – the third person in power, by the way – intends to “look” into the neutral zone on the Korean Peninsula:
“I don’t think it will please Kim Jong Un more than her visit to Taiwan Xi Jinping“, – said the orientalist.
As well as Burns’ visit to Yerevan, which has already “backfired” with a new aggravation in Nagorno-Karabakh.
Azerbaijan aggravates conflict in Karabakh zone
The Azerbaijani authorities did not want to listen to the accusations of the Armenian prime minister against the Russian peacekeepers and Baku, which “signed an agreement with them”, and got down to business. And, immediately rattling weapons.
Remember August 4th Nikol Pashinyan at a government meeting declaredthat “in the presence of Russian peacekeepers” Azerbaijan seizes Armenian villages in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh, allows the ceasefire to be violated, and allegedly “cases of physical and psychological terror of the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh” were recorded.
Today Azerbaijan announced the start of a military special operation “Retribution”. The demand is the complete disarmament of Nagorno-Karabakh. As explained in the Ministry of Defense of the country, its Armed Forces “carried out an operation in response to a sabotage-terrorist act by Armenian armed forces, because of which an Azerbaijani serviceman died.”
As a result, Azerbaijan took control of several strategic heights in Nagorno-Karabakh and destroyed a number of military positions.
The Armenian military reported the death of one serviceman and the wounding of eight more.
The Ministry of Defense of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) accused Azerbaijan of violating the ceasefire. Partial mobilization began in the republic. Russian peacekeepers are helping to stabilize the situation.
