ArmInfo.The discussion about Armenia's withdrawal from the CSTO is artificial, while there is no such discussion at the public level, it is pushed through by pro-Western social and political circles and their sponsors. Arman Ghukasyan, a member of the "Voice of the People" expert club, stated this at a meeting with journalists.
According to him, today one-sided manipulation of the minds of citizens is actively spreading and work is being carried out not only through pro-Western channels for transmitting information, but also from official pro-government resources.
As Ghukasyan pointed out, many pro-Western forces in Armenia presented Pelosi's visit to Armenia as the fact that the Americans are in a hurry to help the Armenian people precisely in connection with the aggravation of relations with Baku, however, these information flows have nothing to do with reality. The expert recalled that this visit was planned long before the escalation of the conflict. So it is obvious that the Americans and their support group have done everything to mislead the public in order to take advantage of the current situation.
"The United States has always played and is playing on the contradictions between different countries and is trying to extract dividends for itself. This is typical of American politics," he stressed. According to the expert, the activity of the West is obvious, and the explanation for this is very simple: the military confrontation in Ukraine. Now the collective West is doing so in order to expose the flanks of Russia and open up various new fronts against Moscow. Given that Armenia is Russia's ally in the South Caucasus, and the region itself is rather complex, the US interest in Armenia has grown significantly here.
The goal of the USA is he displacement of Russian interests from the region rather than the well-being and security of Armenia. At the same time, as Ghukasyan emphasized, the fact that the USA already has an ally in the South Caucasus region in the form of Turkey is being forgotten, the latter is a member of NATO. How will the US arm Armenia against its ally? How will the US place NATO bases instead of the 102nd Russian military base in Gyumri, which protects Armenia, if this is not possible within NATO? Armenia, as a result of rash actions, may again face the Turkish threat. It is this decision that the pro-Western advisers of some socio-political forces of Armenia are leading to," Arman Ghukasyan is sure. The true goal of anti-Russian propaganda in Armenia is to oust Russia from the region, but only Armenia will suffer from this," the expert concluded.
