ArmInfo.Armenia's way out of the current situation is in the ongoing transformations of the world order. Political scientist Stepan Danielyan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
"It is important to note that the Artsakh issue is much broader and more comprehensive than just the Armenian-Azerbaijani problems. In this light, the discussion of the Artsakh issue only within the framework of the Armenian-Azerbaijani platform will end without reaching any solution. We will simply not be allowed to do this, a clear example of which is Ukraine. The point is that the current government of Armenia continues to do everything for our next defeat," he said.
In this light, Danielyan recalled how in the fall of 2020 Armenia and Artsakh lost the war even before it began on the field of diplomacy, due to its absence. As a result of the actions of the Prime Minister, who did everything possible and impossible for Armenia to be in a war with a coalition of states to face the war with a coalition of states in "proud loneliness". According to his estimates, the sequence of all these actions allows to assert that they were purposeful.
According to the political scientist, by recognizing Artsakh as part of Azerbaijan today, Pashinyan is allegedly trying to prevent another war. However, in reality, his actions will end in a new war, no longer between Armenia and Azerbaijan, but with the participation of Russia, Turkey, Iran, and other countries are not ruled out. And the scale of this great regional war will be far greater than what is happening in Ukraine today. In this light, Danielyan noted that it was the so-called "peace agenda" proposed by Pashinyan that formed the basis for the controversial statementsof the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair countries, as a result of which the West is now trying to push Russia out of the South Caucasus, expanding Turkey's zone of geopolitical influence.
"Pashinyan began to break up the format of the OSCE Minsk Group with negotiations with Aliyev in Dushanbe and Dubai. This was followed by a series of his contradictory statements and actions, leading to a military escalation in Tavush, and, as the culmination of all this, to the Baku's calls for war. Pashinyan did everything to start the 44-day war. But it is impossible to remove him from power today without presenting the society with a clear alternative, opinions and programs to bring the country out of the current situation. Without such programs, the situation will only worsen," the political scientist forecasts.
