With Pro-Russia leadership the game wouldn't have been rigged because the game would not have been played at all
Turks didn't just decide suddenly to make their move out of the blue, Armenia made that decision for them when they discarded protection that Russia was providing for the past 30 years
They saw the opportunity that Armenia offered to them and they took it
Russia itself IGNORED the preparations for war.
The contracts for the LORA systems date from 2017. The Israelis literally tripled their sales to AZ from 2016 to 2019.
Turkey made that decision because of Russian developpments in Syria, Libya and in the Caucasus.
The fact that Turkey is taking half the gas it was supposed to take, that it is going towards an AZ/RU swap for its TAP strategy. The fact it decided to push back in Idlib and the fact it is going deep in Ukraine have NOTHING TO DO with Armenia. Nor did Turkey provoke the mess with Georgia. Turkey is trying to get as much from Russia as possible knowing that they are living on borrowed time.
This is the grand game. Turkey is maximalizing the lack of operational flexibility from Russia. While it knows it cannot do much vs Russia is the Russians move on AZ and ARM and Georgia, it can provoke a situation in a legalese situation to which no one can oppose, unless too late.
Now the French are basically waking the fuck up, but Italy, Spain and the Germans are pushing for non-meddling. The US is all stupid and paradoxal. On one side they slap pseudo-sanctions and put pressure on Erdogan on the other they're too happy to see the Turks pull shit vs Russia. This is going to cost them a further intervention to stop Russia from bashing Turkey to the curb in the future because an official Turkish base in AZ is non-negotiable.
God help the Azeris when Russia will come for them/
