Of course he'd be worried. You can trace the Russian reluctance to even offer diplomatic support to Armenia outside of calls for ceasefire to Pashinyan's internal and external policy decisions. Unless he can deliver the required mea culpas and display concrete steps to accommodate Russian interests in Armenia just as Lukashenko in Belarus did that badly needed Russian help is not forthcoming. Let's hope he makes the right call, or Armenia could find another leader who can do so.Armenian wrote:Pashinyan just called all people served in army in the last year. He stated that it's not about NKR anymore and there is a real danger of a new Armenian genocide.
He seems quite worried to me. I think Putin made some kind of deal with Erdoğan and decided to sacrifice Armenians. Not that it makes any sense but Russia is clearly not willing to do anything to help Armenia. Azerbaijan on the other hand is trying to create narrative that missiles are fired from Armenia.
The purpose is clear. Attacking Armenia.
Some people here might find this exaggerated but I think we are really on our own against Turks. Land inversion to Armenia is real possibility.
Not only Russia but the whole world is watching Armenians to be massacred again. In the 21st century.
Nevertheless, its simply inconceivable for the Russians not to help. A lot of Russian influence in their near abroad is resting on what actions they will take in this conflict. If they let a nominal ally of theirs get torn to pieces by much weaker powers that simply signals weakness and invites further provocations. No, teaching the Armenians a lesson would have to take a backseat.
