“A few weeks ago there was some back and forth between Armenians and Azerbaijanis about whether Russia would come to Armenia’s defense in the case of a war over Nagorno-Karabakh. Well, now a top Russian general has weighed in, and he sounds pretty certain that Russia would get involved,” writes Eurasianet.org.
The website reported that General Andrei Tretyak, the Chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the Defense Ministry, said the possibility of conflict in the region is high, but argued that it is gradually decreasing as a result of Russian efforts to reduce tension in the region.
During the discussion on Karabakh with certain analysts Tretyak made clear he disagreed with the suggestion that Russia’s relationship with Armenia is eroding and made clear that Russia will carry out its promises to that country. No one should see Russia’s refusal to intervene in Kyrgyzstan last summer as a precedent for Karabakh, as that was a very different situation.
