'Natural ally' Egypt president Sisi’s historic Armenia visit is chance to intensify ties, including in defense sector
Reddit once again cannot fathom what Armenians have realised ages ago.
But "muh" Turkey sends Bayraktars to Ukraine! Yes because its big business and Erdogans son in law is making a fortune with selling this flying rubish acros the world!
Why we dont see them oblirating russian positions in Bakhmut? Russia already had anti-aa back in 2020, but withold them for Armenia, as part of their deal with Erdogan, allowing him to promote his weapons.
Its a big mafia of selling oil, natural gas and weapons. How people cannot realise that and still believe Turkey is an ally of NATO is beyond me! Turkey still has not sanctioned Russia, and dont be suprised to see Erdogan calling for Russian help if he fails the elections and faces a revolution just like Assad did! Putin once saved Alijev with greenlighting the 2020 war! This quran burner also seems to have been a russian asset.
Thanks for u/yeeterboy21 and a anonymous Armenian for help
Russia responds to deployment of EU mission in Armenia
“Attempts by the European Union to gain a foothold in Armenia at any cost, to push back Russia’s mediation efforts could harm the fundamental interests of Armenians and Azerbaijanis in their aspirations to return to the peaceful development of the region. We are convinced that the key factor for stability and security in the region for the foreseeable future remains the Russian peacekeeping contingent deployed on the basis of the statement of the leaders of Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia dated November 9, 2020, as well as the Russian border guards serving on the Armenian borders. They will react to the behavior of the EU observers, taking into account the development of the situation on the ground,” the statement reads."
"The Russian Foreign Ministry added that while “preferred to make a choice in favor of the EU,” a CSTO mission could still be deployed, if “Armenian allies remain interested.”
"The appearance of representatives of the European Union, which has turned into an add-on of the USA and NATO and is pursuing a policy of confrontation in the CIS zone, in the border regions of Armenia can only bring geopolitical confrontation to the region and aggravate the existing contradictions. The announced civilian nature of the EU mission should not mislead either. it is formed within the framework of the Common Security and Defense Policy of the EU, with all the consequences arising from it," the Russian Foreign Ministry added."
"The Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized that the Russian peacekeepers will respond to the behavior of the European Union observers."
"The European Union's attempts to strengthen its positions in Armenia at any cost, suppress Russia's mediation efforts, may harm the fundamental interests of Armenians and Azerbaijanis in their efforts to return to the peaceful development of the region.

They will respond to the behavior of the EU observers, taking into account the development of the situation "on the ground", the message states."
