ArmInfo. As a result of the defeatist policy of the authorities, the losses of the Armenian side are only growing. An expert in Azerbaijani studies Tatevik Hayrapetyan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
"Armenia's concessions only facilitate the diplomatic and military victory of Azerbaijan. And today, through military actions, Baku is trying to force Yerevan to conclude a peace treaty and thereby close the issue of Artsakh once and for all. After that, the presence of Russian peacekeepers in Artsakh will depend solely on Baku," she stressed. However, according to the expert, even having achieved goals in Artsakh, Aliyev will continue to exert military pressure on Armenia in order to achieve now goals in the Syunik direction. In the opinion of Hayrapetyan, having achieved control over the Lachin corridor, Azerbaijan will seek a similar corridor through Syunik. In which Baku is fully supported by Ankara.
The same control over Berdzor and other Armenian-populated villages of the corridor, Baku, according to its own statements, is trying to achieve through anti-terrorist actions. However, in return, Yerevan negotiates with Baku again and again, returning from there with the worst results. And according to the expert, the responsibility for all these failures lies precisely with the ruling team in Armenia.
"Meanwhile, the only way to curb Azerbaijani appetites is only Armenia's readiness for war, for a large- scale armed confrontation with Azerbaijan. And if Nikol Pashinyan hopes to appease Azerbaijan's appetites in some other way, apparently driven by him alone, then he is cruelly mistaken. There is only one way - to be constantly ready for the possibility of a new Azerbaijani aggression. However, instead of strengthening the army and increasing the military potential, in the last two years, the leadership of Armenia continues to waste our rather limited time. As a result, already today, Baku seeks to clear the last scores with Artsakh, and then move on to Syunik," Hayrapetyan summarized.
