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,"
