Those kind of lies do not last enough
#Armenia's PM Pashinyan says he was badly informed on Iskander missiles, they have not been used by the Armenian army during the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.Pashinyan said that he was misinformed about the "Iskanders".https://twitter.com/Russ_Warrior/status/1366456935130742800
when just in your territory there is a military detachement of the nation maker of those systems and any launch toward or outside your border is recorded by hundreds of different sensors
(always from the previous maker nation) in the interests of the ОДКБ rules of mutual responsibility
.Pashinyan is merely attempting to show
,in any way, a level of support provided by Armenian armed forces to the self-proclaimed Artsakh Republic in the conflict, that is totally irreconcileable with the reality
(where the support amounted to no more than some logistical supply lines and remote command orders).
The public opinion's backlash for a kind of "shared defeat" is
, in facts, obviously infinitely less dangerous under a political point of view than to reveal the simple reality
- Armenian divisions do not moved a single meter from Armenian border
, and any serious military analyst know that even a partial ground intervention by part of those divisions particularly in the Southern sector would have split the attacking forces in three or four segments that would have been easily encircled and overruned.
- Defensive systems of Armenian armed forces, in particular air defense and EW systems, acted only when Azerbaijani systems was very near to Armenian borders
with very clear results.
https://arsenal-otechestva.ru/article/1385-nebo-karabakhaThe clumsy lies of Pashinyan about Искандер-Э
(all of which are instead still in the launchers and depots in Armenia) and the EW systems
,that never moved in the area of conflict limiting instead themselves at prevent, with noticeable success, enemy UAV/UCAVs to operate near Armenian borders are nothing more than an attempt to say to its internal public opinion that it had attempted to support the Armenian people in the territory of self-proclaimed Artsakh Republic but without success.
It would be much more serious ,by its part ,try to explain to Armenians that a direct intervention in the conflict ,lacking any legal basis under any international and even internal law point of view, after the initial overturning of the events in Artsakh favour (and probably an enormous increase of the losses on ground fro the attacking Azerbaijami forces) would have quickly opened the road for Turkey to intervene in the conflict to the side of Azerbaijan and also with international legal basis (Armenia would have been considered to any extent an open invader and Azerbaijan could request the aid of Turkey against it).
Armenia would ,at this point lost any of the coverage provided by ОДКБ ,that has purely defensive purposes, and the Federation would have tied hands against the Azerbaijani and Turkey counter Attacks against Armenian territory.
It would have been an apocalyptic disaster for Armenia ,under a military and economical and geo-political point of view.
This sort of serious ,complex explanation deserve the Armenian people…..not self-embarrassing lies over lies.
