Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict: Russia’s proxy war
As we all know, there is a new term that frequently being used in political literature: Proxy wars.
This new term refers to legal states' operating the unrecognized, non-state regimes which still have the power to make important military changes in any region where they were located. With the help of this proxy war system, foreign states have the chance of fighting each other without even officially waging war.
WHAT IS RUSSIA TRYING TO ACHIEVE IN THE REGION?
Within this context, the YPG/PKK terror organization corresponds to such a term. This terror organization is actually an illegal establishment of the United States in Syria. Supporting YPG/PKK, the United States made many promises to the organization on helping them to form a state in the region.
Getting to the current events, Armenia has also been put in a similar position.
It seems utterly illogical a 3-million-populated Armenia to attack a 10-million populated Azerbaijan which also has a well-developed military technology. It’s all clear to those who are familiar with politics, Armenia is incapable of bombing a state and even setting off fireworks without getting approval from Russia. All these current attacks are leading us to one conclusion; Armenia is itself an subject to a proxy war.
So if we about to ask any meaningful question, this is what it should be: What is Russia trying to achieve in the region?
In addition to all this, if there is one thing that startles us all, it is the Turkish opposition leader’s hypocrite attitude on the issue.
Turkish opposition leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğu, who rejects the Turkish parliament’s decision on sending troop units to Syria referring YPG terror organization was not targeting Turkey in the region, has said that no one was objecting YPG on forming an illegal government. Such remarks are making us to hesitate on asking him questions about Operation Euphrates Shield or Operation Olive Branch, in case he has never heard of them. We wouldn’t want to put him to shame, of course. And yet, Kılıçdaroğlu has the potential of saying that Turkey has never condemned Armenian over its attacks against Azerbaijan.
Cap it all off, the deputy leader of Turkish opposition Republican People’s Party, Ünal Çeviköz, has dared to voice the claims that Ankara sent jihadists from Syria to Azerbaijan to fight against Armenia.
It’s best for all to ask patience to stand all of these nonsensical claims, and strength to protect our political stance against these provocateurs.
