Russia has been shuffling Armenia and Azerbaijan as a pack of old cards for its interests. It took hundreds of lost lives until at least some people in Armenia started to understand this. Today this understanding took concrete shape and form as hundreds of people rallied in Yerevan against Russian sale of arms to Azerbaijan as well as Russia’s treacherous stance towards Armenia.
While most of the frustration was directed at the Russian Embassy in Yerevan, with a couple of eggs thrown in its general direction, protesters also chanted “Shame” in front of the Government building and the Foreign Ministry, blaming the Government for failure to make Russia fulfill its obligations as Armenia’s security partner at the CSTO and economic partner at the EEU.
Meanwhile, most Armenians I speak to these days say our nation is once again left alone with its enemies just like 100 years ago, when Russian troops withdrew from Western Armenia and the Ottoman Empire committed a cold-blooded Genocide, killing and marching 1,5 million Armenians to their peril.
It is April again…
