View from Moscow: Russia`s strategy in Caucasus region has been  successful so far

ArmInfo. Although the USA and  its allies attempt to influence on Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia  these efforts have not led to any significant and long-term changes.  This means that Russia's strategy in the Caucasus region has been  successful so far, expert of "Anatoly Sobchak Fund", member of Party  of Growth Council Sergei Stankevich expressed this opinion during an  online interview organized by Region research center. "Russia insists  that all the issues of ensuring security on the territory of South  and North Caucasus must be solved only by the countries of the given  region without any interference by any superpowers. Any exclusions  are possible only if UN imposes direct sanction, for example as in  case of OSCE Minsk Group on Nagorno Karabakh", the expert said. 

Stankevich considers that Russia's isolation by the West turned out  to be impossible and the G-20 summit in China has vividly  demonstrated that fact. According to him, the European allies  cooperate with Russia closer, and even the USA seems to reach  agreement with Russia related to conflicts in Syria and Ukraine. 

At the same time commenting on the readiness expressed by France to  organize regular meeting between Armenia and Azerbaijan's presidents  on Karabakh issue Stankevich supposed that France's mediation efforts  are most likely agreed with Moscow and will be coordinated with it.
