Another entre of Pashinyan—On Armenia’s claims to the Georgian region of Samtre-Javakheti

By | Political observer Rasim Babayev

Every person’s life is filled with mistakes. Minor, tragic, or even fatal. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan made all mistakes without exception that a politician of his level should never make.

Exalted to the head of the Armenian government thanks to mysterious twists and turns of fate, he, in essence, remained the same noisy opposition editor of a cheap newspaper specializing in the circulation of “yellow” gossip.

His self-admiration in online social media reports drove Armenia into even greater socioeconomic decline. During his reign, the country finally lost the confidence of international investors. Just one thing is the refusal of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development from the project for the development of the Amulsar gold deposit, in the implementation of which it was planned to invest 400 million dollars.

And if there is still a big question whether the capricious wheel of fortune will spring across the chakras of Nikol Pashinyan, devastated by himself in the process of mocking the trust of the Armenian population, then for his buffoonery about the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan, he and the world Armenians known for their territorial claims receive today in full.

Possessing an army equipped with the most modern weapons, Azerbaijan could have solved the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict in a cardinal way, guided by international law to restore its sovereignty and territorial integrity, enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations. However, Baku, adhering to the peaceful option of resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh problem, for long 30 years unsuccessfully tried to reach the Yerevan cabinet bureaucrats with proposals to resolve all controversial issues amicably.

Alas, it didn’t work out. And if the ex-presidents of Armenia Robert Kocharian and Serzh Sargsyan at least demonstrated the semblance of their presence in the negotiation process, then Nikol Vovaevich, to be sure, decided to cut from the shoulder in his usual manner. Apparently deciding for himself that this time he would get away with his self-indulgence, the Armenian prime minister from the first days of his stay in power clearly stated that he was absolutely not interested in the negotiation process on the peaceful settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict.

His populist statements that Karabakh is Armenia, his very careless clown entre with dances in the native city of Shusha, the first lady of Armenia Anna Hakobyan with arms in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, drop by drop overwhelmed the state.

I will not dwell in detail on what is happening on the stage of the Armenian-Azerbaijani theater of military operations for the last more than three weeks in this material. It is already clear to everyone that the Azerbaijani army, which is more prepared today in military and moral-patriotic terms, is successfully liberating its cities, villages, and regions from the 30-year occupation.

I would like to draw attention to one very symbolic act of Pashinyan, whose affairs are already cracking at all the seams. Either he is bluffing, trying to give his compatriots new hopes for the conquest of new “Armenian” territories, or he simply continues to get bogged down in tsungzwang out of habit.

So, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, in the very days when the armed forces of Armenia illegally located in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, are suffering a catastrophic defeat, decided to share on his Facebook page a photo signed by Javakhk. Naturally, this could not but affect the patriotic feelings of Georgians in view of the deliberate distortion of the name of the Georgian region Samtskhe-Javakheti by Nikol Vovaevich.

True, later the head of the Armenian government removed this picture from his profile, but a dirty hint was made. Losing the territories seized from Azerbaijan at the end of the 20th century, Yerevan hastened to voice its far-reaching plans for the near future.

Following Pashinyan, the ArmenianReport portal attacked Georgians and Georgia with offensive attacks.

“They know who Javakhk belongs to historically. They know that Armenians have historically lived and live there. They even know that many other territories of Georgia, including their capital Tbilisi, are historically Armenian cities. But they continue to portray “indignation.” Moreover, I repeat, not even daring to express it officially, ”wrote the Armenian Internet resource.

Moreover, the author of the material openly accused Georgia of “betrayal” towards Yerevan due to the fact that Tbilisi did not allow “humanitarian” supplies to Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, as a result of which the occupying Armenian troops were not allowed to defeat the “Turkish-Azerbaijani armada”.

Furthermore, Georgians were accused of all mortal sins, lack of courage, and lack of willingness to die for their native land. It was emphasized that only an Armenian warrior possesses a mighty spirit.

What’s a sin to conceal? We saw this “mighty spirit” in the shelling of civilians in the Azerbaijani city of Ganja. Armenian militants demonstrated this “courage” over unarmed people against the innocent inhabitants of Khojaly, massacring 613 civilians, including children, women and old people.

Silent about the economic collapse, in fact, of Armenia itself, the author of the lampoon “Sobering up” indignant “Georgians” declares the deplorable state of the Georgian tourism sector, which has suffered from the coronavirus pandemic.

“This is a verdict for the country’s economy, which is used to several million tourists a year. And we have the opportunity to put pressure on Georgia.

For this, every citizen of Armenia must stop visiting Georgia in the future. We must stop buying their products. This will be a personal contribution of each to the cause of sobering up a neighbor who has obviously taken too much wine and too obviously fell under our enemies. Plus, we need to support the right of the people of Javakhk to freedom. In every possible way. We will have to show the Georgian side all our political power by increasing pressure on politicians in the United States, France and Russia to support Javakhk, ”the article says.

That is, there is an analogy with the territorial claims of the world Armenian lobby to the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan.
