Forecast: Even after achieving his goals in Artsakh, Aliyev will  continue to exert military pressure on Armenia As a result of the defeatist policy of the authorities, the losses of the Armenian side are only growing. An expert in Azerbaijani studies Tatevik  Hayrapetyan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo. "Armenia's concessions only facilitate the diplomatic and military  victory of Azerbaijan. And today, through military actions, Baku is  trying to force Yerevan to conclude a peace treaty and thereby close  the issue of Artsakh once and for all. After that, the presence of  Russian peacekeepers in Artsakh will depend solely on Baku," she  stressed.  However, according to the expert, even having achieved  goals in Artsakh, Aliyev will continue to exert military pressure on  Armenia in order to achieve now goals in the Syunik direction. In the  opinion of Hayrapetyan, having achieved control over the Lachin  corridor, Azerbaijan will seek a similar corridor through Syunik. In  which Baku is fully supported by Ankara. The same control over Berdzor and other Armenian-populated villages  of the corridor, Baku, according to its own statements, is trying to  achieve through anti-terrorist actions. However, in return, Yerevan  negotiates with Baku again and again, returning from there with the  worst results. And according to the expert, the responsibility for  all these failures lies precisely with the ruling team in Armenia. "Meanwhile, the only way to curb Azerbaijani appetites is only  Armenia's readiness for war, for a large- scale armed confrontation  with Azerbaijan. And if Nikol Pashinyan hopes to appease Azerbaijan's  appetites in some other way, apparently driven by him alone, then he  is cruelly mistaken. There is only one way - to be constantly ready  for the possibility of a new Azerbaijani aggression. However, instead  of strengthening the army and increasing the military potential, in  the last two years, the leadership of Armenia continues to waste our  rather limited time. As a result, already today, Baku seeks to clear  the last scores with Artsakh, and then move on to Syunik,"  Hayrapetyan summarized.
