I do not want to repost the article, but a couple of comments (from the author himself) below the article are deserving of attention

I am already getting hate mail from pseudo-Christian imbeciles who think that this is an Islam vs Christianity issue. I can’t even begin to put in words how kind of pseudo-Christian nonsense depresses me – when faced with such pretend “Christians” (“Soros Christianity”, I suppose!) I really feel like throwing in the towel and giving up.
Frankly, I am ashamed and embarrassed by how terminally STUPID some (a lot>?!) of my “Christian” brothers are…
I wish they learned about how Saint Photios the Great deal with Islam and Muslim leaders…
You know what it feels to research a topic for HOURS and DAYS and then get that kind of illiterate and, frankly, bigoted crap as a reaction to that work? Just makes me feel like giving up and just live the rest of my days in peace.
(sorry, I had to get that off my chest)
But no, I won’t do that. Why? Because the truth is worth suffering for. It is really that simple. At least for me. Yeah, I am naive, romantic and Pollyannish. But that’s me. They can’t change me and I refuse to cave in.
My only loyalty is to Christ. Not to pretend “Christians”!
Screw them! I have NO desire to change or join the herd.
Hugs and cheers!

I wish there were decent and sane people in power in power Erevan. In fact, I am pretty sure that they WILL come to power. And I feel horrible for having to say a lot of very unpleasant truth to my Armenian friends! But, please, remember the utter disgrace, shame and, frankly, total dishonor of Russia during the Elstin years!
Pashinian and the rest of them Sorosites are just the (nominally) Armenian version of Eltsin and his gang of Semibankirshchina!
The truth is that I really wish Armenia and the Armenian people all the peace and prosperity they deserve. I wish that too to the beautiful and long suffering Ukrainian nation!
But it is PRECISELY because Russia suffered pure hell under Eltins that I know that as long as the people of Armenia and the Ukraine suffer under the yoke of terminal SOBs like “Ze” or Pashinian there is no hope for these nations. Is it not my moral duty as a friend of both the Ukraine and Armenia to say this openly? To call it as I see it?
Right now Pashinian and his Sorosites are doing what all “liberals” do: they blame the entire universe and declare themselves as innocent, pure, victims. And as “Christian martyrs” while they are at it!
These are all lies.
My advice to the next government of Armenia? Prove to Putin that you are even BETTER allies than the Azeris who, let’s just look reality in the eyes, superbly played their card and never gave Russia a reason to see them as enemies.
Maybe a return to power of Sarkisian is the solution?
I don’t know.
What I do know is this: most Russians love and respect Armenians! But we are not ideological enough to pretend not to understand that Pashinian is CIA/MI6, a clear and unequivocal prostitute to the Empire and a hypocritical enemy of Russia!
For Russia, this is not a Islam vs Christianity issue.
It is a credible allies vs Empire puppets.
You would do the same thing, if you were in our boots.
Still, Russia has, and will, guarantee the safety of all the Armenian people. Even if some Armenian politicians hate us, we will never allow the Turks to genocide you ever again. The CSTO (which many dismiss for no good reason) is a guarantor of that. And even without the CSTO, no Russian leader will EVER allow the Turks to mass murder the Christians of the Caucasus.
Right now the pain and humiliation of the defeat are understandably blinding the mental eyes of many Armenians, but I trust (I know!) that there are wise Armenians who will correctly understand the causes and consequences of this war, and they will do the right thing. Armenians did not survive in this very dangerous region by being fools!
God willing, the current outrage in Erevan will free Armenia from Soros’ and USA’s colonial domination! God willing, wise Armenian patriots will take power! And, God willing, we all, Russians, Armenians and Azeris will learn how to live in peace.
