The escalation between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh is about to get out of control, a scenario wished by some. It can’t be ruled out that this may be directed against Moscow, where the goal is to take the war to a strategic territory for Russia, sensitive for the security of its southern flank. This is something that the Armenian government seem to be starting to understand, after having flirted with the US since 2018 without realising that for this power it is only and exclusively a tool for its regional strategy, subversive and terrorist since it is based on destroying and dividing countries, turning people into enemies of each other and this way securing its presence, the sale of weapons and the plundering of natural and material reaches. The future and welfare of Armenia depend on its indestructible alliance with Russia, something that is clear for most Armenians but not so much for some of its rulers who are now starting to understand that their political games jeopardise the mere existence of a country and a people.
Conspiracy theory with no proof presented to support any of the claims, mixing several recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Russia being encircled by an aggressive West, and the need for Russia’s neighbours to yield to its requests in order to maintain good relations. There is no evidence that foreign powers had anything to do with the September 2020 military escalation between Armenia and Azerbaijan and that the escalation is meant to destabilise Russia. See other examples in our database, such as claims that the US embassy in Armenia is a mini-Pentagon escalating tension in the region and the Middle East; that western curators organised an anti-Russian coup in Armenia; that the US is encircling Russia with biological labs for a future attack and is ready to carry out a false flag operation in Alaska to blame Russia; or that it is using the conflict of Nagorno-Karabakh to exhaust and destabilise Russia.
