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.
Russia never meddles in internal affairs of its neighbours, or more generally any other country.
Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative denying the meddling in internal affairs of neighbouring countries and all countries in general.
The interference of Russia in internal affairs of ex-soviet countries is a long tradition that even ended sometimes in frozen armed conflicts.
Russia also has a track record of meddling in democratic processes such as elections, including in those of western countries. Independent research, media investigations and parliamentary inquiries have uncovered evidence linking Russian state actors with interference in various electoral processes, including the 2016 Brexit vote, the 2017 French Presidential elections, the 2017 German Parliamentary elections, the 2016 constitutional referendum in Italy and the Dutch referendum on the EU’s Association Agreement with Ukraine.
Electoral interference by Russia has been extensively documented in numerous countries around the world.
