So Putin does not care that Artsakh(NK) Armenians will remain in total isolation from the world. He just needs Armenia to sign Eurasian-Union agreement at any price.
the preliminary treaty states that the customs checkpoints will be created in Kashatagh, Lachin, and other roads going to Karabakh. Imported products from Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia with have relatively high tariffs, in accordance to the Eurasian Economic Union. According to the circulating news, Armenia plans to sign this treaty on October 10, and will go into effect on January 1(2015)
Apparently it’s good that we don’t have Russians in Armenia. Otherwise Putin would “protect” them, and we would have bloody events like in Ukraine. But stop! Putin will protect us from ourselves! The paper we signed with Russia, CSTO paper, contains a point that Russia may “help” our authorities in case of inner, not only outer threat. It means they’ll “save” us from having democratic elections, and change corrupted government. They need this corrupted and puppet government to dictate to us. Otherwise, if we try, they’ll protect us from ourselves.
Also, they’ll protect people of Artsakh. They desperately need their forces there. Once they enter, they’ll never get out.
They’ve published list (not yet a list of people to be executed, but it’s very much their style to make lists) of people who support and promote “international homosexuality lobbying”.
That’s basically list of my friends - just educated people with open minds.
This is what you have when Russia wants you in Eurasian Union.
At the left - Russian and Armenian flags.
At the right side there is a “Komsomolskaya Pravda” banner, they’ve opened Armenian service. It’s one of the most reactionary Russian newspapers. They, for instance, published a text which said like “we’re sorry Hitler didn’t have time made lamp shades from grandfathers of those who support Maidan”.
This also means - “BE CAREFUL WHEN WALK LATE AT NIGHT ALONE”
why? it is not enough for them to force us to “join” their “union”, now they need Russian as an official language in our monoethnic country. Btw, Russian is still tought in schools, as a second language.
It makes me pretty sad when I see Western liberals/leftists defend post-Soviet authoritarian leaders. I mean come on, you are defending people with golden toilet seats and Swiss bank accounts, people who plunder their own countries to buy yachts and football clubs in London, people who send their kids to the most expensive Western colleges and buy American passports for them. Even those Western leftists who idealized Stalin the 1930s made more sense: Stalin was a mass murderer, but at least he was trying to build a socialist economy, rather than trying to steal enough money to buy a mansion in Miami, FLA.
March 5, 2014 10:36 PM EST — (TRN) — U.S. Department of Defense satellite imagery has detected the arrival of more than thirty (30) Russian nuclear bombers to the airfield adjacent to Russia’s Borisoglebsk national level nuclear weapons storage facility (Voronezh-45) and has observed numerous transfers from the storage facility to the aircraft, which are now standing-by along the two runways at the airport.
According to sources from the National Reconnaissance Office, yesterday there were only two Bomber aircraft at the airport to the east of the storage facility. This is typical for this facility and those aircraft can even be seen on old images used by Google Earth, HERE.
Early on March 5, U.S. satellites captured an image showing many bomber aircraft had arrived at the base. Later on March 5, a U.S. stealth surveillance drone, flown over the Russian base, showed more than thirty (30) such nuclear bomber aircraft had arrived at the airfield. Numerous transfers were observed by U.S. satellites, between the nuclear storage facility and the newly arrived aircraft. Those aircraft remain on the runway at the local airport at this hour, several with what appear to be Auxiliary Power Units (APU’s) attached, indicating the aircraft are on ‘stand-by” for immediate deployment.
Clearly, Ukraine poses no threat whatsoever to Russia, which begs the question: What is Russia preparing for? They certainly are not going to bomb Ukraine with 30 nuclear bombs, so what other targets do they have in mind; western Europe?
Just days ago, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov made clear to the west that Russia would retaliate if the west imposes sanctions upon Russia, and in a cryptic message, Lavrov stated that such retaliation “would be asymmetric.” The definition of “asymmetric” is: having parts that fail to correspond to one another in shape, size, or arrangement; lacking symmetry. Launching multiple nuclear attacks against multiple countries in western Europe would certainly be asymmetic.
