"This provocation by Armenia is very dangerous. Because sending two subversive groups with the task of mining the supply route of the Azerbaijani army is an unprecedented event since the Second Karabakh War," said Igor Korotchenko, editor-in-chief of Russia's National Defense magazine, well-known military expert.
Axar.az reports that this was reported by foreign media.
"The date of Armenia's latest sabotage attempt was not chosen by chance"
He said that the history of sabotage by the Armenian side was not chosen by chance: "We see Armenia's efforts to make a big fuss over individual small border incidents. I think that the history of Armenia's latest sabotage provocation was not chosen by chance. Attempts to commit this act of sabotage on the eve of May 28 - the Republic Day of Azerbaijan are not accidental. It should be understood that the Azerbaijani border guards and the military monitor the situation on the border with night vision devices and thermal imagers."
"If the act of sabotage that Armenia is trying to commit today took place..."
Korotchenko said the issue of delimitation and demarcation of borders with Azerbaijan was unacceptable for Armenia: “Therefore, this issue is politicized. Pashinyan's opponents describe the talks on the issue as his weakness and Armenia's loss of position. If the act of sabotage that Armenia is trying to commit today took place, the issue of defining the exact line of the Azerbaijani-Armenian border would be off the political agenda for several months. Fortunately, this did not happen.
"The Kremlin and the Foreign Ministry will send a clear signal to Yerevan to prevent such dangerous provocations"
The Russian military expert stressed that the country's position on the issue is unequivocal: "Moscow's position on border incidents is moderate. This position is that the current problems must be resolved through political and diplomatic means without exception. President Putin and Foreign Minister Lavrov also spoke about the delimitation and demarcation of the Azerbaijani-Armenian border."
"Delimitation and demarcation of the Azerbaijani-Armenian border means stability and peace in the South Caucasus"
Korotchenko also clarified why the delimitation and demarcation of the Azerbaijani-Armenian border is important: “Precise demarcation of the border means stability. This means who is on which side and excludes the possibility of border incidents. In short, the delimitation and demarcation of the Azerbaijani-Armenian border means stability and peace in the South Caucasus. Armenia does not want to give Azerbaijan a map of mined areas, nor does it want demarcation. Certain forces in Armenia, as always, hope for revenge and chaos. They do not want to fulfill the terms of the tripartite statement, to create a corridor between Azerbaijan and Nakhchivan. These forces are leading Armenia into a political and historical stalemate. Unfortunately, these forces are fighting for power in the country today. I think that Russia, taking into account all the risks, will use its influence to put pressure on Armenia to resolve the issue of delimitation and demarcation of borders as soon as possible."
