http://www.phantomreport.com/russian...hantom+Report)On March 12 Armenia's Serzh Sargsyan will leave for Moscow to meet with Vladimir Putin. Among the issues which, according to the press, will be discussed, there is one relating to the CSTO and the airport of Stepanakert.This is a very interesting combination and it appears that both issues will be discussed in the same context. It is possible that the airborne troops mentioned by General Shamanov will be deployed in Stepanakert airport.
It seems that Russia is giving up on having good relations with both Armenia and Azerbaijan. I'm not sure how smart that is, or whether or not it will make the conflict going hot again more or less likely.
But as to why, I have no clue. Perhaps the Azeris are getting to aggressive towards Armenia for the Russians' liking, or getting too palsy with the West. But I really don't know.
All I know is that my own country (Serbia) is starting, for some unfathomable reason, to take sides in this conflict, and I don't like it. Not in the slightest.
The NK airport has been a hot topic with Azeris since day one.
They promised to shoot anything that flies to or from there.
I am guessing because of the way the deal with the radar station went, Russians are just doing a political move.
Kind of like "see we are gonna use it, what you gonna do about that"?
