BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that Russia would intervene militarily “in the event that this is necessary to ensure the security of Armenia in accordance with the bilateral agreements between the two countries.”

In an interview with the German newspaper Bild, Pashinyan said, in response to a question on this topic:

“Armenia hosts the 102nd Russian military base, and we have a joint air defense system.”

“The bilateral agreements clearly define in what cases these forces can be involved to ensure Armenia’s security,” he continued.

Pashinyan added: “These cases are very specific and I am sure that Russia, and in the event (these cases) occur, will implement its obligations within the framework of the agreements.”

On the morning of September 27, clashes erupted on the contact line between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces in the Nagorno Karabakh region and adjacent areas, in the most dangerous escalation between the two parties in more than 20 years, amid mutual accusations of starting hostilities and bringing in foreign militants.

Yeah, no, no they won’t. Turkey and Israel have transferred to Azerbaijan their most sophisticated weapons to deter Russian involvement. It’s mostly to isolate Iran for an attack later, with a follow on, on Russia themselves.
It must have worked, because Russia would already be fighting, I think ballistic missiles dropping on civilians in Armenia would be enough to engage the treaty already.
What happened to their “protection of Christians” and their “holy war declarations” of such now? No where to be found.

You don’t understand the geopolitics there right now. Russia would never allow an Azerbaijani or turkish military operation inside Armenia like they are doing now in nagorno karabakh.

Russians are really good chess players. They are waiting for the outcome of the US election on November 3rd. If Trumps win the election, NATO will be dissolved and the peace in the world will prevail. If Trump loose the election, then expect the big war that will spill into EU. Any outcome is good for the US, the Americans will sit and watch EU, Russia , Iran and Turkey falling apart. China is next.
