56269 - The Russian game

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

The Russian game never stopped in Caucasus and it continues on even now with a new game in Artsakh.
Russia considers the entire region to be in actual fact its own property. And within it, she wants to play the dominant role.
This is obvious with the signing of the ceasefire between Armenia and Azerbaijan, which occurred in the Russian language and without the representatives of Artsakh.
Russia continues the game that Stalin initiated when he gave Artsakh to the Azeris, although the population was 95% Armenian.
Consequently, through the war between the Azeris and the Armenians, Russia, which officially protects Armenia but not Artsakh, which was left in God’s mercy, it managed to have an even more intense presence in the region, and to in fact integrate it into its sphere of influence.
Following the death of some Russians she imposed a ceasefire, whereas she allowed so many Armenians from Artsakh to die without supporting them.
She managed to be the referee of a rigged game in order to gain even more points in the region, since likewise she proves that she is the dominant player.
