    I hope Pashinyan brought some encouraging news following his “closed door” meeting with Putin. If Russia still plans on being a strategic ally then it must provide tangible assistance to the Armenian side. Otherwise, the Azeri’s recently acquired Israeli rocket system will not only rain down on Armenia proper but on Russian troops stationed there as well. Putin can’t play both sides any longer on the argument of maintaining equal strength between the foes. The rules of the game have changed and it’s high time for Russia to prove itself. If it continues with its current policy then it will only prove that Armenia is merely a pawn for their bigger ambition; to control Azeri resources at the expense of Armenian blood.
