While Western pharmaceutical corporations are still working on a drug against coronavirus, the European Union does not rule out the purchase of a vaccine developed by Russian scientists “Sputnik V”. The race for the vaccine has been another failed test of Western solidarity. On both sides of the Atlantic, governments are making multimillion-dollar orders for a drug that pharmaceutical corporations have not yet created. Opposition against Sputnik V has political roots and is grounded in the fact that West did not yet create its own vaccine.
The Atlantic bloc would benefit from a large-scale war between Russia and Turkey over Nagorno- Karabakh. It is in the interest of the US to stoke conflict between Russia and Turkey, both of which challenge the global unipolar order. Washington’s interest is for Russia and Turkey to fight each other instead of fighting US hegemony. By deviating Russia’s and Turkey’s attention towards Nagorno-Karabakh the US will be able to increase its influence considerably in Syria, Libya, in the Eastern Mediterranean as a whole, and in other regions where Moscow and Ankara have become important players. It is significant that the escalation of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh is taking place at the same time as other attacks conducted by the Atlantic bloc: the revolts in Belarus and the pressure on Germany to abandon Nord Stream 2 (in relation to the “poisoning of Alexei Navalny”).
This is a conspiracy theory, now being spread by several pro-Kremlin outlets, suggesting that the recent escalation of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is in the interest of the US and the West and is the result of deliberate US actions aimed at harming Russia and its interests. The article even claims that the escalation in Nagorno-Karabakh, the protests in Belarus, and the pressures to abandon Nord Stream 2 as a result of the Navalny poisoning are all three US-inspired coordinated attacks on Russia. This message is consistent with the broad pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that the US and other Western states allegedly pursue a belligerent and hostile agenda against Russia. The article presents no evidence to support its claims. In reality, there is no evidence that the US nor any Western states had anything to do with the September 2020 military escalation in Nagorno-Karabakh between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and that the US is striving to provoke a war between Russia and Turkey. The recent escalation in the Nagorno-Karabakh region is a continuation of the decades-old conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia. On September 27, significant fighting broke out between the militaries of Armenia and Azerbaijan, two states that have been locked in an intractable conflict over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh since the last days of the Soviet Union. The Nagorno-Karabakh clashes have the potential to draw in larger powers — in particular Russia and Turkey, two countries that already support opposing sides in Syria and Libya. EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell has urged "an immediate cessation of hostilities," a call echoed by the U.S. State Department and the United Nations. For further background read here and here.
