    Long live Armenia. Long live Russia. Despite some political issues from time-to-time Armenians and Russians have been brothers for two hundred years. It has been and it will continue being a symbiotic relationship: Russia keeps Turks and radical Islamic terrorists out of Armenia, Armenia keeps Turks and radical Islamic terrorists out of the south Caucasus. Armenians and Russian are natural allies. After Armenians themselves, Russia is the only nation on earth that would suffer terribly if Armenia disappeared from the map. Armenians would do well to place all their emphasis on deepening and strenghtening Armenian-Russian relations. Any Armenian today that is anti-Russian or want to limit Russian presence in Armenia is either a Western funded mercenary or an idiot – or both.
