Armenia vs. Azerbaijan, and how it’s affecting Ukraine

While Russia suffers defeat after defeat in Ukraine, it is also distracted from the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia. While the conflict seems to be frozen now, there is a risk of it turning into a full-scale war between the two countries – and it also directly affects Moscow’s interests.

While Ukraine supports the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Azerbaijan and welcomes the peace initiatives and negotiation process between the two countries, Russia, a close ally of Armenia, is now unable to provide the latter with military help.

As the Russian occupation army discredits itself every day with new war crimes and terrorist attacks, the Kremlin also starts losing its influence and strategic dominance in the post-Soviet space – and it is also a symptom of the redistribution of spheres of influence in the world.
