Yerevan, Armenia – Another cold shower for the cornered Pashinyan: Russia’s rejection of Armenia’s request for help!
Armenia, which has violated all ceasefire agreements to date and continues to attack Azerbaijan, is in a difficult situation. Armenia, which has not been able to find the support it expected from Russia since the beginning of the conflict, was once again shaken by the response to its latest effort. Pashinyan’s request for help from Russia has been rejected!
In the ongoing conflict with Azerbaijan, Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan asked Russian President Vladimir Putin for support under a mutual security agreement with Russia.
As fighting continues on the Azerbaijan-Armenia line, the Armenian army continues to suffer heavy losses. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan called Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier in the morning to ask for help.
In previous talks, Putin had said that they could not help Armenia based on bilateral agreements because the war was on the occupied territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Pashinyan, who could not get Russia’s support, this time asked Russia for support, claiming that Azerbaijan was organizing attacks on the Armenian borders. “Prime minister Pashinyan met with Russian President Vladimir Putin to begin bilateral consultations to determine the form of support that can be provided to Armenia, taking into account Russia’s allied relations,” the Armenian Foreign Ministry said in a statement after Pashinyan called Putin in the morning.
On the other hand, the Russian Foreign Ministry, in response to Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s request for assistance from Russia again, reminded that the conflicts were not on Armenian soil.
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan sent a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin calling for the launch of consultations on how Russia can support Armenia, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a written statement.
Referring to the Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Support Agreement signed by Russia with Armenia in 1997, the statement said: “in accordance with the agreement, Russia will provide the necessary support to Yerevan if the conflicts move directly to Armenian territory. We reiterate our call for an urgent ceasefire for the parties to the ongoing conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.” the statement said.
The Azerbaijani army had liberated 4 urban centers, 3 towns and about 200 villages and some important hills from the occupation of Armenia in an operation that began on September 27 in Nagorno-Karabakh.
