How Close Is Too Close? Russia Admits Concern Over Militants In South Caucasus

Click to see full-size image

The Russian Foreign Ministry does not deny the danger of mercenaries from Syria and Libya participating in the battles in Nagorno-Karabakh “infiltrating” into Russia.

“It is certainly impossible to deny such a danger,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

“There are no trifles in the fight against terrorism. It is important to analyze any risks, including potential ones, to work ahead of the curve,” he said.

“Russian law enforcement agencies are closely monitoring the situation and, as they say,” keep their finger on the pulse,” concluded Syromolotov.

The head of the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation, Sergei Naryshkin, previously stated that, according to available information, mercenaries from international terrorist organizations fighting in the Middle East are actively pulling into the conflict zone, and they are being deployed in the thousands.

Earlier, leg Siromolotov had a meeting with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Armenia to the Russian Federation Vardan Toghanyan.

The parties exchanged views in the context of the ongoing escalation in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.

“The inadmissibility of the transfer of militants of illegal armed groups from a number of countries of the Middle East and North Africa to the region and the need for immediate withdrawal of those militants from the region were highlighted,” the press release stated.

According to available information, thousands of militants are being sent to Azerbaijan from Turkey.

The the trip reportedly 3 months and the salary is $2,000 per month, while the trip to Libya lasts 6 months and the salary is $1,500 per month.

Earlier, Russian President in a telephone conversation with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had expressed concern about the involvement of militants in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The Russian President and the Turkish president also discussed developments in Syria and Libya over the phone.

Both Azerbaijan and Turkey are aware that Armenia’s policy in the last few years doesn’t make it easy for Russia to step in and assist Yerevan.

Despite the agreement for mutual defense, Russia will not move in to assist the Nikol Pashniyan government, and especially in a region that Armenia itself doesn’t recognize as independent, and it’s a sort of limbo.

However, as mentioned above, Russia sees the presence of militants in Nagorno-Karabakh and in the wider South Caucasus as a red line, which could warrant it moving in, so that the situation doesn’t deteriorate further.

After all, Moscow has already gone through two Chechen wars against al-Qaeda (as its an open secret that its supporters were quite active).

The endeavor to combat terrorism and contain the potential threat of it spreading towards Russia were also one of the main reasons why it began its campaign in Syria, after it was invited by President Bashar al-Assad’s government.

As such, Azerbaijan and Turkey are more than enough to effectively capture the entire Nagorno-Karabakh, and it is puzzling why they’re undermining their own chances by deploying more militants to the region.

And there’s several speculations for the reason:

  1. It could be that Ankara and Baku have trusted the Neo-Ottoman propaganda too far, and Turkey has become too used to using “cannon fodder” on the battlefield. The obvious examples are Syria and Libya.
  2. Ankara could be interested in further expansion towards Russia’s North Caucasus, and using Syrian-based proxy groups is also a part of this plan. How this will work out? Only time will tell.

Regardless, currently, it appears that Baku and Ankara are on the edge of prompting Russia to take part, and it is to be seen whether they will go too far.

Come on it’s funny. Every time pro Armenian trolls are hysterically posting pure BS, that means soon we will witness another Armenian govt confession about their loses.

Kohlhaas

Wait… you are actually right, seriously. I did not notice this before.

3º AZ infantery are unable to fight face to face with Armenian troops and needed islamic radical terrorist!
4º Erdogan wants another Idlib in NK targeting Armenia, Iran and Daguestan( Russia)…which will have the indirect support of USA&Israel specially vs the 2 last countries.

Kohlhaas

You can’t even spell Dagestan… just stop it.

What would the U.S. do if it was in Russia’s position? Probably turn the other cheek :-)

occupybacon

I don’t see any evidence that photo was taken immediately after this incident. I call BS.

paolinks

Are you joking? That photo is a shot from Trump’s address to the media in regard to Iran bombing their bases in Iraq.

Tommy Jensen

Exactly. We want peace and not war. Therefore we dont escalate the situation but stay cool.
We stay cool and wait for the moment people LEAST expect, because America is always prepared for ruthless terrorists who jeopardize innocent Americass on our soil and our way of living …………….LOL.
And we will NEVER allow Iran to nuke Israel and Florida. Period…………….LOL.

paolinks

If you don’t want problems, don’t go around creating problems for others. Stop Israel and their stupid and continuous provocations against Lebanon and Syria.

Stop acting like pirates on the high seas. Stop violating international laws.

So, again, the ugly truth, somehow, the exuse to just wipe the Armenians of this earth is aokay because of their president, whom replaced another one witch the Armenians didnt wanted, and the new one have had the seat for what, 2 years?, and then its an reason good enough for throwing Armenians under the buss, I never ever thought I would read this kind of what, reasonings, exuses for doing nothing.
When we know the Turdians and Azeris started this war, and again I read in several sites even on ZeroH where some people deliberatly lies about NK and Armenians, and cliams Armenians genoicded somebody, and so on, the same way the HasbaRats reverse the claims by stating that the same happened to them, and on top of it, just writes nonsense and cant link to anything, while demanding Armenians as an people to be slaughtered just because the Armenian Gov looked westward, hurmf… tells me a lot, I am not even sure if its because of been infantile, stupid and ignorant or just plain HasbaRat babbling/units/brigades, remeber it was the Brits whom founded White Helmets etc, since ZATO and ISISrael is behind the Happy head choppin Azeri scums, and thats the sole reason for the Ruskies to mumble something about mutual respect of treaties while they back Azeris because Putin is corrupted to the core, and is doing what ISISrael tels them to do, even when they have killed Russians in Syria, like the Turdians have, even then the bootliker Putin just hid under the desk and hoped nobody would ask anoying questions.

For the first time in decades I feel ashamed of haved suported Russia, now, I regret, because of this obvious treason, we may debate whys to kingdom comes,, economics, yup wack em for an fist full of shekles, yeah, why not, thats so bloody noble isnt it. Its nothing personal, its just bizzenizze.
Selling weapons, again, right, giving Turdians and Saudi-barbarians the state of the art, and denying the so called Allies, the same, huh, Russian hurrah patriots.
Fascinating isnt it.

Again, what happened SF, you have derailed.
Pitty, but not That surprising, the Russian gave me an itch in Syria because of creating what I persive tactical cluster f… of such an extent and proportion that one have to be blind to not see why, because of ISISrael and Turdians, witch is again backed by the ZATO forces/nations, Putin threw Syria under the buss, period, and now, because of the same eh….. opposition, threw Armenians under the buss.

You dont fool me, I am to old and dont have anything to gain nor loose, I just write what I know is facts, because I base that on not whats said, but whats done, and the drivel you serve, by somehow give the insane perspective about Armenians is for me an wake up, I never thought this would happen, but it obviously do, Syria was one thing, Libya to, Yemen they all dont give an f…. about incl Russia, one of the few states standing is infact Iran, so far.
Yup, all roads leads to Tel-aviv.

peace

Smrda

You really think someone else will shed his precious blood because of you, so you could conveniently sell your a$$ everywhere on the west?!?!

I think the Russians already saved your a$$ once, 25y ago, and in the meantime you did your best to show the world how ungrateful whore$ you are… so pathetic!

Stev60

Again, the fallacy that it’s legit to let Artsakh fall in order to punish the Pashinyan regime. They are formally separate entities, and Russia is responsible for having helped set up Artsakh, thus putting it in the position of being attacked now by the Turks. Did Russia even give Artsakh the chance to become a specifically Russian protectorate for example? Or just handed it over to the butchers to settle a score with Yerevan, and some bags of bribes?

Smrda

Pashynian didn’t fall out of the sky into Armenia, there were some people that installed him, jubilantly chanting anti-Russian slogans, so what we gonna do now?

And many are whining “but the majority of Armenians loves Russia bla bla bla…”

If you are a majority, you have my full support, get rid of your government that have “no support”, and install the right one that is really pushing the interest of the Armenian people.

It’s funny to see how public opinion shifts the same moment you start losing this war. If in some case you are winning, Russia will still be the enemy and occupator.

And that’s the exact what the whore$ do.

Stev60

‘Some people’ in Yerevan is no excuse to shaft Artsakh for benefit of Turko-jihadis.

RichardD

The Armenian government is losing on purpose by not putting a no fly zone in place over N-K.

If the Russians want to get involved. It’s in their interest to demonstrate the effectiveness of their air defense technology and systems against modern weapons.

If the Armenians have ziokurd terrorists in N-K. That isn’t helping matters.

Random Dude

If Assad can invite Vagner to his country, then Aliyev can invite Syrians PMCs. Unless there is double standard to be applied.
Analogically how close is too close to have Vagner for Turkey?

Harry Smith

PMC means organization which is officially registered and permitted by government. HTS mercenaries are fighting against their own government and are not registered and permitted by Bashar al-Assad. That means those mercenaries are terrorists in accordance with the international law.

The same as in Donbas

Harry Smith

Not only in Donbas, but in Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Transnistria, Gibraltar, Libya, Taiwan etc. Like I said before, international law is made for all countries except world powers. USA, Russia or China are doing what they want and what they can. Nobody can stop them except themselves.

occupybacon

Wise words!

Stev60

Or God, and Fate.

Random Dude

I doubt there would be any problem for Turkey to register a company in its own country, specially since it is home for couple of million refugees. I am sure in the last 8years they have had few men come of age. Lat time I checked there was no restriction on nationality.

catalin zt

SICTIR MONGOL! Fsssss

Harry Smith

Turkey has PMC. But there no official info this PMC involved in NK conflict.

paolinks

The problem is that there is no syrian pmc. And the head choppers Aliyev is using are branded as terrorists around the world.

You cannot hire Bin Laden’s PMC services, just because someone hires Wagner.

Random Dude

Absolutely agree. If the groups that allegedly are there are recognized by UN as terrorist organization, then yes. But unilateral recognition also doesn’t work otherwise US would have a right to attack IRGC within Iran.

Ataturk-Hitler-Stalin – Who remembers the Armenians?
