The Russian peacekeeping force has entered the Nagorno-Karabakh region and is working to establish 16 observation points to monitor the ceasefire regime. According to updated information, the core of the force is made up of units of the 15th Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade “Alexandria” and the Military Police.

Russian forces have already taken control of the Lachin corridor, which links Armenia with Karabakh. The Armenian town of Goris is being using by the Russians as the build-up area for further deployment. The tasks of Russian observation posts in Karabakh, according to the Russian General Staff, are the following:

  • collecting information on ceasefire violations and communicating this information to the peacekeepers’ command;
  • maintaining the safety of free transit and transport;
  • suppression of illegal actions against the civilian population.

As it was revealed earlier, the deployment includes 1,960 personnel, 90 armored personnel carriers, 380 motorized vehicles and special equipment. The deployment includes BTR-82A, Tigr, Typhoon armoured vehicles as well as Mi-8 and Mi-24 military helicopters which will be used to monitor the ceasefire together with reconnaissance drones. Photos and videos from the ground also showed specialized electronic equipment and even battle tanks. The tanks were not noticed as a part of the peacekeeping force. So, most likely they will remain in the Lachin corridor area only, on the Armenian side of the border.

The deployment of Turkish peacekeepers to Nagorno-Karabakh boasted of by Ankara appears to equate to the participation of the Turkish side in the ceasefire monitoring center with Russia. Ankara and Moscow have already signed a memorandum of understanding on its creation. The center will be located on Azerbaijani-controlled territory and will allow the coordination of ceasefire monitoring efforts and the review of ceasefire violation complaints.

The Azerbaijani side also reported that it has already started to set up policing units on the territories it has taken during the war. Meanwhile, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev promised to turn the areas captured from the self-proclaimed Armenian Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh into a paradise.

“Our people’s unity will enable us to bring back life to the liberated territories. Karabakh will be reborn. It will be revived and reinvigorated. It will become a real paradise,” Aliyev said. According to him, Baku is now going to focus on demining and securing the retaken territory as well as restoring infrastructure there.

These developments come amid a developing political crisis in Armenia. Last night, the opposition was unable to dismiss the country’s prime minister Nikol Pashinyan, who is still in hiding, because of a lack of quorum in the Parliament. At the same time, security forces started arresting protesters and opposition leaders demanding the resignation of the cabinet.

The crisis was accompanied by revelations of Arayik Harutyunyan, the President of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, who claimed that the Armenian forces had suffered from a lack of proper command, manpower, equipment and combat morale in the crucial days of the war.

“When we were supposed to go to Yehnikner with our elite units and the Armenian special forces, our units refused to go there. I asked, begged, said that I would go ahead, but received a negative answer! They didn’t go with me, they left the President of their country alone,” Harutyunyan said.

The president added that 18-20-year-old conscripts were the main forces fighting against the Azerbaijani military and its allies in Karabakh. The statement of the Karabakh leader highlights the real state of events and the lack of authentic and much needed assistance from the government of Armenia to the self-proclaimed republic during the war.

So Russia now has fresh troops in fresh positions they never had since the days of the Tsar, surrounding Turkey.

Has Erdo realised that fact yet? lol

Rhodium 10

Russia is weak…his weapons are useless…but wait..Russia have 2000 troops in Karabaj which means just 40km from oil/gas pipelines which connect Azerbajan with Georgia…and from there to Turkey and EU….LNA was defeated by Turks in Tripoli and there was a “Pantsir parade”….oh wait Russians PMC have the control of all petrol fields, Hub ( Ras Lanuf) and main port to export ( Sirte) beside an air base ( Al Jufra) with SU 24/ MIG 29M….

rightiswrong rightiswrong

The Turks paid for Azerbaijan to retake most of N-K, and for Russian troops to be stationed there.

He’s a genius that Erdo. He needs Russian troops near to him, to prevent the next coup, lol.

occupybacon

Sounds fair. Erdogan prefers Russia over USA near its borders now.

occupybacon

And what has Russia to do with Azerbaijan oil and gas pipes? I’ll tell you what: Nothing!

Rhodium 10

Nothing..but in case of war NATO vs Russia….no oil and gas should sent to EU from Caspian…above all if your armed forces are close to gas pipelines which can supply to your enemy…thas why also Russia are building a naval base in Sudan…

occupybacon

Lol NATO vs Russia war, what strategy game did you play all night, pal?

Rhodium 10

Geopolital game

occupybacon

Have you thought trying with girls instead or you’re too young yet?

Rhodium 10

No! I am too old and I know what I am saying…you must to study Geopolital and trade/oil routes beside naval and airspace…all empires have been empires because they controlled the Geopolitical and routes. of course nobody will close pipelines…but if you have bases near there…its better! and NATO exist and the main enemy is Russia.

occupybacon

1. NATO vs Russia war will never happen, that’s why nukes are for, to keep peace.
2. For stopping an oil pipe line, someone diesn’t need to build a military base near it.
3. Red Sea base was built for access if Russia to Africa.
4. NATO has a lot more bases near Red sea than a tiny Russian presence.
5. Most EU oil doesn’t come from Gulf and that part would be easily covered by Texas alone.

And I could continue but I’m afraid that’s already too much for you.

Rhodium 10

1º Ok
2º NO!…you can destroy part of the pipelines that can be repair…but if you occupy the area where pipelines pass….you cut gas/petrol to Turkey and Georgia beside EU
3º or to deploy long range antiship missile that can close red sea in case of conflict
4º it doesnt matter..Russia have more troops and bases along Baltic countries than NATO but its enough as a deterrence forces.
5º Ok you have to carry it along atlantic sea which are an easy target for Russian Subs and its long range antiship missile.
And I could continue but I´m afraid thats already too much for you.

occupybacon

So if you agree with 1. The rest doesn’t matter anyway. Let’s not get this to WW2 level :)

Ryan Glantz

NATO and Russia Alliance Vs Turkey War, now that might happen

occupybacon

Why do you think that?

Ryan Glantz

Nevermind, NATO is too corrupt to pull that off.

cechas vodobenikov

pork unthinking—USA currently required to import vast amounts oil/gas from Canada and Russia
LOL

occupybacon

How vast? LOL

Ryan Glantz

burn! seriously though, good question.
Also, American force deployment Operation Defender 2020, I heard they captured the Dominion machine in Germany. (The cia box that can rig/swing elections, and yes, there are multiple)

Ryan Glantz

DEFENDER-Europe 20 has nothing to do with covid ;) OR “the terrifying Russian threat” lamestream media loves to lament about so often.

occupybacon

I think there will be a lot of things we will learn about in the next 4 years.

Ryan Glantz

Russia is one of the most badass countries on the Planet.

Zarathustra

The west is in a weak state itself. Russia does have good weapons.

I now understand why the USA will stand alone and lose world war 3. It is playing out right in front of us.

Ryan Glantz

WW3 has been going on for about 2 decades now, wake da fook up already.
WW3 is an information, economic, and energy war for the future of humanity where a group of globalist cannible pedophile lucifarian satanists thought they could get away with eliminating 90% of the population, vs a group of elite criminals who had a change of heart and decided to keep the world a little more intact and kill less people so they could be called heroes at the end.
And some nations do have actual Space Fleets…
Some nations have had Space Capability before others too (i.e. Germany)

John Tosh

The real WW3 will have most of US coastlines wiped out.

Ryan Glantz

did you take another hit from your hopium pipe? relaying your hourlong fantasy dream?

John Tosh

We shall see…. I have been fairly accurate… read my track record…

Just because you clowns do not like the outcome does not mean it will change for you!

Did your release of Covid-19 destroy China as you planned??? NO….it further reduced your influence. Exactly as I expected and wrote about.

Ryan Glantz

Operation lockstep is a draco creation. I didn’t plan anything. The inhuman “elites” are trying to eliminate the Caucasians if you haven’t noticed… Ask yourselves why.

BlueHeadLizard

Actually pretty well balanced
USA + NATO + India
vs
China, Russia. Muslim Sphere.
So USA / NATO stimulate fighting between Muslims, and Muslims against Russia. The N-K conflict a classic.

But sure a bad idea from NATO side continually antagonising Russia forcing it to the China / Muslim side.

John Tosh

You clowns still expect the Punjabi warrior to fight for you??? What a joke.

BlueHeadLizard

Well against China who has stolen all of India’s water sources in the Himalayas and Tibet, India has no choice. China is in position to poison the whole of North India. No way India can beat China on its own.

John Tosh

Lol…. dream on….
You losers have lost
Your place will be exactly where Africa is today…: Lol

Overconfident clowns….. do not even know supernatural creatures WANT YOUR DEMISE!!!!

BlueHeadLizard

Hiya John T.
– Agreed. Western Europe is quickly becoming absorbed by, and an extension of, the massive MEA (Middle East and Africa) region.
– Not sure about supernatural creatures. Happy to learn more.

John Tosh

You know what you need to know……
You will never know more than you are allowed to know…
Keep your CIA poisons flowing, keep manipulating peoples careers and jobs, relationships and lives like you do. This shows the immaturity of the Central Intelligence Agency, hence the CIA will be blind and kept blind to supernatural forces. When you play with people’s lives, you are pissing off supernatural forces…..
Wait for the grand finale!

एरन

Never taking one’s eyes off an ant hill teaches one nothing about the machinations of ants, John.

John Tosh

Why do you need to know the machinations of ants?? they are ants… similarly you do not need to know details of an organization, it is useless. You decide to leave the anthill alone or let the fire in the bush burn the anthill down.

The CIA will be prosecuted in the future. They will cry and beg like babies for their atrocities. Their families will see them for what they really are, murderers, arsonists, terrorists and thieves. They will be a disgrace to their families.

BlueHeadLizard

well not fight for the ‘West’, but maybe their own water?

Mark M. Nobelman

Realizing that he just gained 85% of the contested area in NK. He must be crying in his sleep over that.

What a silly suggesting.. He gained alot here if anything

rightiswrong rightiswrong

And he can ask Russia to give him a camera feed of the area he paid for, well done.

Better a bone than scraps from the table.

Ryan Glantz

Constantinople looking nice about now ;)

BlueHeadLizard

This an expensive annoying loss for Russia. Instead of your (previous) allies, Armenia + Artzahk, in control of that territory, your own troops at your expense are now tied down there. Big land control loss, 2/3’s of previous occupied territories, to Azerbaijan, Turkey’s strong ally. The 2000 Russia troops posted is ‘stop a total collapse’ defensive move.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Keep on saying that, you might just convince yourself.

Russia controls the NK region today, sitting very close to the pipelines. All thanks to Aliev agreeing for his troops to enter the region, while the Turks get to watch by CCTV.
Ever wonder why Aliev didn’t ask for Turks? LOL

SevenMoons

Not much is new. Russians look impressive. But for what use? They will be out soon. Azerbaijani refugees will be happy to return to their own homes….

occupybacon

Russians are there because they are curious how the process of moving one million of population and building houses and infrastructure and hospitals and giving them jobs, can be done. I’m curious too.

PZIVJ

You nailed it, how many Azeris want to move back? But the Iran border area looks like decent agriculture.

Whacko

Azerbaijan is a rich country, they can provide it. They did not ask for international help to rebuild a war-torn NK.

occupybacon

Because Aliyev don’t want to just rebuild, he wants to build Paradise

John Tosh

Comparing China to the Western system of Doing Things.

China is mastering the art of building electric trains and 6 G networks while the Western countries controlled by the Central Intelligence Agency are mastering the art of killing. For example everytime you take a flight, the CIA can introduce poisonous substances in the airvent of planes…. What you usually get is the flight attendant upon boarding a US flight will “upgrade” your seat. You will sit alone in your row. The poison will start flowing despite your closing the overhead vents. The poison is supposed to make you sick, upon which you will be taken to a hospital as a Covid patient where the CIA will complete its job of killing you by giving you heart stopping medication… they blame it all on Covid!!!

Now you know why the Western countries are pushing Covid…. while China has controlled covid!

Nigerian State Security Service and Covid-19,

You should be asking why did Nigeria’s chief security officer get poisoned under the cover of Covid19? Just so a Western friendly security officer can be placed right next to President Buhari.

The reason Covid is being pushed by the Western countries is because they still have a few more people to poison and claim it’s Covid. Just as they killed Nigerias chief security officer.

I am surprised the Nigerian government has not arrested that physician in Lagos.

China wiped out Covid. The West is trying hard to keep Covid going as a tool for murder. Covid makes 98% of infected slightly sick. When those get to a hospital controlled by Western intelligence, they get poisoned with a heart stopping poison just as Nigeria’s Chief security officer.

The new chief security officer has brought back Western agents like Musiliu Smith and so Nigeria will have 10,000 dead from chaos just as it happened before when Smith was chief of police ; who gave Obasanjo fake security reports that Babangida was doing it. The trick was for Obasanjo and Babangida to go to war and tear Nigeria apart.

Welcome to Western controlled Nigeria.

Ryan Glantz

slightly paranoid rant there, yet you’re not far off from the truth sadly.
