Tbilisi has found Yerevan to be an enemy2011-11-18 10:32
Tbilisi continues to invent new reasons for the desecration of Russia's reputation at the regional level. Since it is no longer possible to reproach Moscow for conflict in South Ossetia, the Georgian propagandists decided to choose partners and allies of the Kremlin as the weapon. Armenia, locked between Turkey, Iran, Georgia and Azerbaijan, is the subject of vile provocation. According to Professor Guram Marhulii, Yerevan - is a bat in the hands of Russian politicians.
Anything for a quiet life. However, it's not about Georgia - they simply need from time to time to lower their hand into a cesspool to find another reason to snarl at Kremlin. The fact that Moscow has long ceased to listen to Saakashvili and his colleagues seems to bother no one. Thank to professor of Sukhumi University in Sakartvelo Guram Marhulii, Tbilisi has got a new occasion to annoy Moscow. According to him, for over a century, Russia is using Armenia to achieve their aims in the Caucasus, and thus Yerevan becomes that bat in the hands of the Kremlin, which they occasionally use not only others Caucasian republics, but also Turkey.
"For this purpose, since the 19th century, Russia began to massively relocate the Armenians to the Caucasus. In the late 19 - early 20th century, the Armenians even tried to expand their habitat up to Tbilisi in order to create "Great Armenia" and were very close to it, but the beginning of World War I delayed the implementation of this plan", said Mr. Marhuliya.
It is clear that the professor challenges not only the history but also geography. In Armenia, locked between the other countries of the Caucasus and without outlet to the sea, simply has no other strategic allies there, and it's not its fault. As a result of the Russian-Persian war, Moscow's position in the region has been strengthened. Moreover, according to Turkmanchai peace treaty, which confirmed all the conditions of the Gulistan pact, the Russian Empire got the territory from the Caspian coast up to Eastern Armenia. And do not forget that Russia demanded an amnesty for all inhabitants of Iranian Azerbaijan, who collaborated with its troops.
As you can see, Moscow has always cared about its allies and protected them from external aggressors. But Georgia, which reproaches Russia for choosing Armenia as a strategic partner, has its personal count to Yerevan. Mikhail Saakashvili can smile in public as long as he wants, but promoting the integration of the Caucasus, he remembers, why the Armenian-Georgian conflict for border areas broke out in 1918, and in fact at the time Sakartvelo already belonged to the Russian land. And then the transport route, linking the metropolis with the republics, became a subject of bargaining with the Armenians under the mediation of the Entente, which included England and France, so beloved by Mikhail Saakashvili. And somehow, Georgian leader has no questions to David Cameron and Nicolas Sarkozy on this matter.
Not to mention Turkey's position in relation to its eastern neighbor. The Ottoman Empire subjected the Armenians to genocide during the persecution of Christians. And today this fact is still not officially confirmed by the Turkish side, but it was also the first to recognize Armenia's independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union. And the relations with Azerbaijan are complicated not only because of the Karabakh conflict, but also because the policy of Baku is aimed at complete prevention of Yerevan from participation in regional projects.
