It is very important that the eyes improve relations Russia and Iran with Azerbaijan, although earlier in this complicated geopolitical configuration was a lot of problems. First of all, due to the fact that both Russia and Iran have traditionally close relations with Armenia, which is the regional enemy of Azerbaijan. The Karabakh problem complicates the situation.But lately, between Russia, Iran and Azerbaijan was reached mutual understanding on Karabakh problem: all agree that the first step to its solution must be the return of five adjacent to Karabakh, occupied by Armenians during the escalation of the Karabakh war. This will support both Moscow and Tehran. When they come under the control of Baku, opens the possibility of admission of Azerbaijan to the EEU and the CSTO.
Russia is a friendly country for Armenia and Azerbaijan. We don’t want and will never choose either / or. And those and others – our friends. And all the problems between the in the framework of the single Eurasian families be addressed in the overall geopolitical structure – the Eurasian Union.
Russia will try to further pull apart the two sides are not allowing a full-fledged war between the political, diplomatic and economic means. Opponents of the Russian Federation of course will play on the contradictions between Armenia and Azerbaijan and use the duality of the Russian policy in the region, seeking to cause a full-blown military conflict and to put Russia in front of a losing choice. It should be understood that the recognition of NKR and the transition of the conflict into a new phase among other things is another symptom of the destruction of the old world order where a pile of such frozen conflicts was an integral part of the world around us.
Following 22 years of relative cease-fire between the Nagorno Karabakh Republic and Azerbaijan, large-scale military operations initiated by official Baku resumed. Why did the Azerbaijani army failed in this long-planned blitzkrieg and what is the link between it and ISIS? What other evil plans did the authorities of Azerbaijan attempt to realize in the course of the 4-day April war? What counter strike was the aggression of the enemy met with and what is the cause of the Karabakh conflict? How does Artsakh withstand the threats by the neighbor and live now? The «Failed Blitzkrieg » documentary tries to answer the questions through facts only offering a vivid picture of the reality.
In geopolitical terms, the direct participants in the conflict are Armenia and Azerbaijan, both of which generally have friendly relationships with Russia. Russia has closer ties with Armenia through political, economic and military partnerships, but Russia and Azerbaijan do not consider each other as enemies. Nagorno Karabakh is now controlled by Armenia and there are no Azeris at all, while earlier they were about half the population. Yet not even Armenia recognizes the Republic of Nagorno Karabakh as a sovereign state.
On April 2, the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh witnessed the greatest outbreak of military hostilities since the ceasefire of 1994. Azerbaijan moved on the offensive against Karabakh Armenian forces. Supported by tanks, helicopters and heavy artillery, Azerbaijani forces attacked positions along the line of contact. They also shelled civilian settlements, resulting in the death of a 12-year-old boy. Two other children were also wounded.
