Couple of Washington's several propaganda organs operating in Armenia are jointly reporting that Secretary-General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) Nikolai Bordyuzha has publicly stated that the CSTO will help Armenia in "domestic emergencies" and "critical situations".
I think we all know what "domestic emergencies" mean. Moscow is getting ready to react to any Western-instigated uprising in Armenia during Armenia's upcoming presidential elections. Currently, Western activists throughout Armenian society are actively seeding Armenia for political unrest and some activists are even going as far as claiming that "Arab Spring" type demonstrations are being organized in Armenia. Being that Armenia plays a vital geostrategic role for senior officials in Russia, Moscow is not going to leave anything to chance, nor is it going to blindly rely on Armenians to confront this potentially serious problem. Therefore, I think we can all expect Moscow to take more drastic measures as Western-instigated wars and political unrest reach Russian borders.
The escalating unrest and "critical situations" in regions adjacent to Russia's vulnerable underbelly is elevating the importance of the already very important geostrategic significance of the Caucasus for Moscow. As Western-instigated wars and political unrests encroach on Russian interests in the region, Moscow is beginning to take on a more aggressive political posture. Libya was the pawn Moscow reluctantly gave up in its desperate effort to protect its bishops, Syria and Iran. Realizing now that its presence in the strategic region are directly threatened by the Anglo-American-Zionist alliance and friends, Moscow has finally decided to do away with diplomatic niceties and draw a firm line in the sand.
There are no worries with regards to Armenia's and Artsakh's territorial integrity. I can confidently state that Moscow will protect the embattled little republic in the Caucasus as if it is a part of Russia itself. For centuries Armenia has been protecting Russia's southern gate and it has been an effective hedge against regional Turks and Muslims. The geostrategic significance of Armenia today is as important for Russian officials as it was for Czarist officials, if not more. In a region that is saturated with powerful Turkic and Islamic influences, Armenia's national independence and its alliance with Moscow will be zealously protected by Russian officials. If Moscow was ready to go to war when Armenia was threatened by Turkey in the early 1990s, in a time when Moscow was literally on its knees, I think the reader can use his/her imagination as to what Moscow would be willing to do today if outside forces threatened Armenia. Let me put it this way. If Moscow is willing to forcefully standup to the West and the rest over Syria and Iran, we can safely expect Moscow to activate its nuclear arsenal if Armenia is in any way threatened.
