    It is very good development. The more weapons Russia pours into its army base in Armenia, the more powerful armenian armed forces can become. There is no half measures in dealing with the Turks. Let diplomacy take its course, but keep our armede forces at the ready at all times and at maximum efficiency levels.Long live Putin and the Russian Armenian alliance..
