Yeah we saw how well Russia "defended" you recently
There is no such thing as a mutual relationship with Russia, nor does Russia have any interest to stabilize any country in their so called "sphere of interest" really because stability leads to prosperity (hopefully) and ultimately less dependency on Russia. You do realize that Russia feeds of the status quo conflict you have with Azerbaijan and that they are playing on both sides to keep the conflict alive right? Not much of a "relationship" imho but each to their own
Anyways, quoting the Queen of Pop herself "You only see what your eyes want to see"...
With that said, I do hope that Armenia is back in 2022 and hopefully things will settle down a bit until then.
No harm done. Hold steady guys. At this point, your withdrawal is irrelevant compared to what you are going through.I apologize for any false hope - I was only relaying information I had heard, which also turned out to be false.
I agree Russia's interests are purely self-motivated. My comment was more so about the reasons why Armenia has been forced to play especially nice with Russia, and it's because of the dynamics of our beloved peace-loving, non-violent neighbors who seem to bend and twist reality and history to their own liking at all costs
Nobody here is under the illusion that Russia is a desirable country to mimic. If we were, we wouldn't be so keen on trying this democracy thing. We're the most democratic in the region, according to FreedomHouse, and I sincerely hope we keep that going.
