    Official recognition of Artsakh by Europe is the next logical step.

  2. Hratch said:

    Look for more involvement from the US and Europe. They now realize the aggressiveness posture of the Russians and will try to counter it. More statements of support towards Armenia and Artsakh should be forthcoming. The tide has shifted as a result of the Ukraine crisis. The only worrisome thing is that Armenia has entrusted too much to the Russians as of late. We have virtually handed over all of our security, sovereignty and resources. They have us exactly where they want us. We trusted too much and gave too much and now the bear is hungry for more.

    It’s not that bad that Russia has invested in Armenia. It will make Azeris think even harder with their monkey brains before starting hostilities. Armenians don’t need Russian troops against Azeris but if Turks get involved, it will be very useful to have Russian support to help Armenians (if there’s a fight on two fronts).
