Just watched the #CNNTownhall with 2024 Presidential candidate and former President @realDonaldTrump , as well as the post-townhall panel discussion.

One thing is clear: #America is a broken country. It's split right down the middle.

Racial divisions and #massshootings are peaking, the economy is cratering, #poverty and #homelessness are rising.

And meanwhile, the US government is involved in, or threatening to get involved in, wars from #Ukraine to #Taiwan to #Syria to #Iran to #NorthKorea.

When they should be working on healing the divisions in their own nation. White vs non-White, Rural vs Urban, Rich vs Poor, drug addiction, broken homes - all these are tearing America apart.

One of the primary reasons #Azerbaijan emerged victorious during its conflict with #Armenia in 2020 was that the Turkish #Bayraktar drones completely dominated the technologically inferior Armenian defense forces.

1/n Image
The conflict portrayed the success and effectiveness of the #Turkish drone program and its combat capabilities.

Türkiye has been able to challenge industry behemoths like the #US and #Israel to capture market share in #drone exports.

Even in the #RussiaUkraine conflict, they were able to inflict considerable damage on #Russian forces.

They have striking precision capabilities and come with relatively lesser price tags compared to their US and Israeli alternatives.

In five years, #JoeBiden will likely get the #NobelPeacePrize. But not because he did anything proactively for peace.

It is because a #Multipolar World will be more peaceful than a unipolar one, and Biden has done more than anyone else (albeit unwittingly) to further that. (1/n)
The US-led #sanctions against #Russia in response to the #UkraineRussiaWar have forced countries around the world to abandon the US dollar as a medium of trade. This is forcing the rest of the world (non-West) together. Banning Russia from #swift was most important in this. (2/n)
#India and #China desperately need oil. Because of sanctions, Russia is providing oil at cheap rates to both. Russia has now become India's largest source of oil, displacing Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Chinese imports of Russian oil have also zoomed upwards. (3/n)

#Armenia: The Russian MFA criticized the recently launched EU mission in Armenia, accusing it of being a source of destabilization. Reacting to this, the Secretary of National Security of Armenia, Grigoryan, clarified that the EU mission is considered a source of security.⤵️
Grigoryan noted that although the Russian military base has been present in Armenia since the 1990s, destabilization episodes occurred regularly. More importantly, the Armenian official explained that the EU mission is not an attempt to change the country's external vector.⤵️
Because Russian security guarantees are an ineffective deterrent against Azerbaijan's military posture, Armenia was forced to seek alternative sources of security guarantees. Even if in the short term, the EU mission is far from triggering a FP review of Armenia. However,⤵️

3. Armenia, together with Russia and Iran, is preparing to attack Azerbaijan.
3/ #Azerbaijan's false narratives.

4. There are illegal military groups in Nagorno-Karabakh that are planning to attack, and it is necessary to disarm the NK Defense Army with an anti-terrorist operation.

1/15 The rules of the new world order are emphasized. The West divides countries into democratic-dictatorial.

Democracies must be protected, this is the main ideology. What does the future hold?

#Armenia #USA #EU #Russia #Azerbaijan #Ukraine #democracy #War #Putin #Biden #US
2/ There is #NATO, which is a military structure, but there are also non-NATO democratic countries that are at risk. And the #West protects them with military and diplomatic power. #Russia promotes the interests of dictatorial regimes through the war against #Ukraine.
3/ If #Putin wins, not a multipolar world order will be established, but chaos will begin. The victory of Russia will mean that there is only the right of force in the world, and small states will face the danger of colonization. Putin says that states are sovereign or colonies.

Sanno di déjà-vu le immagini che in queste ore arrivano dal confine tra #Azerbaijan e #Armenia. L'esercito di #Baku sta ammassando sempre più truppe: la tenuta complessiva del già fragilissimo cessate il fuoco siglato (con qualche interruzione) nell'autunno del 2020
fra le due ex repubbliche sovietiche non è mai stata così in bilico.
Da ormai settimane i civili armeni si addestrano in palestre improvvisate all'utilizzo di armi e tecniche di guerra. Promettono di combattere fino all'ultimo connazionale, invocano un intervento in loro
difesa, descrivono come certo un attacco azero in questa primavera. Tenendosi larghi.

1/11 Russia's FM #Lavrov is leaving for #Turkey in a week. Attention! In #Ankara, Lavrov will also discuss the settlement of #NagornoKarabakh with Turkish FM Cavusoglu, in addition to the topics of #Syria, #Ukraine. Zakharova announced this information today. What does it reveal? Image
2/ 🇷🇺 no longer hides that Karabakh is the subject of its and 🇹🇷's political trade. 🇷🇺 can concede one benefit to 🇹🇷 in the Karabakh issue, and instead receive a benefit in the directions of Syria, Ukraine. The settlement of the NK issue actually fell victim to 🇷🇺-🇹🇷 cooperation. Image
3/ The facts testify to that. After the Sept 2020 war, the #Russia's MoD #Shoigu announced that a successful operation was carried out with #Turkey in #Karabakh. Probably, he meant the defeat of Nagorno Karabakh. A joint Russian-Turkish monitoring center is located in #Aghdam. ImageImage

1/ Today #Azerbaijan's armed forces closed the Goris-Stepanakert highway between Aghavno and Tegh villages. The government of #NagornoKarabakh reports that the new Tegh-Kornidzor dirt highway of Syunik marz is ready. It bypasses the closed road.

2/ This road connects to the new Kornidzor-Hin shen road (Lachin Corridor) commissioned in Aug 2022. Asphalting works of the Tegh-Kornidzor road are in progress by Armenia. Tegh-Kornidzor dirt road is passable.
3/ With this, it is possible to carry out humanitarian supplies to Karabakh by Russian peacekeepers and the International Committee of the #RedCross. Russian peacekeepers control that road on the border of Nagorno-Karabakh, near the Hakar river bridge.

2/ It was signed in 2010, but it was not ratified for 13 yrs. The reason may be #Russia's threats. 🇷🇺 had a monopoly in the military sector of 🇦🇲 both in the supply of weapons, in the field of #military edu. Accord. to SIPRI, in 2011-2020, 94% of 🇦🇲's weapons were supplied by 🇷🇺.
3/ However, losing the war against #Ukraine, #Russia cannot sell weapons to Armenia. Russian military-industrial companies are under sanctions. And Russian weapons are a real curse for Armenia, which does not want to have problems with the West.

the CSTO would not have upset the #Russian president as much as a demonstration of readiness to extradite him (Putin) to the International Criminal Court. #Putin is going to discuss with #Erdogan the use of force on Armenia, escalating the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.
But it seems that #Erdogan, neither before the elections in #Turkey nor even after, is going to play by the rules of the #Russian president.

1/10 This is shamelessness on the part of #Putin's criminal regime. The #Kremlin openly threatens #Armenia not to ratify the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. An information source of the Russian FM told the #Russian state media TASS․

#Russia #Lavrov #Yerevan
2/10 TASS source: "#Moscow considers absolutely unacceptable the plans of official #Yerevan to join the #RomeStatute of the International Criminal Court against the background of the latest illegal orders of the #ICC against the Russian leadership."
3/10 Lavrov's employee also told TASS that the Armenian side was warned about "extremely negative consequences for bilateral relations in case of possible moves by Yerevan".

It is obvious that this news was dictated to TASS by Maria Zakharov, or Lavrov himself.

El gobierno de #Azerbaiyán invitó a representantes de #Artsakh a #Bakú para celebrar una reunión para "discutir temas de integración e implementación de proyectos de infraestructura en Karabaj".
¿Qué implica el término “integración” aquí? 👇🏼
#Azerbaiyán considera a #Artsakh como territorio azerí y a su población como minoría armenia de su país. En general, el término “integración” tiene una connotación positiva;sin embargo, Azerbaiyán se refiere al modo en que termine de ocupar la totalidad de Artsakh ¿Esto es malo?
Sí.El gobierno de #Azerbaiyán afirma en lo discursivo que protegerá los #derechos del pueblo de #Artsakh como sus ciudadanos.Sin embargo,en la práctica,la toma de la totalidad de Artsakh implica limpieza étnica. #Armenia asegura que la vida de un armenio no está garantizada en 🇦🇿

#OTD 21 Mar 1747, #Armenia'ns were granted equal rights with the Dutch in #Indonesia, then Dutch East Indies. Most of the Armenians arrived from Isfahan, New Julfa, Amsterdam, Calcutta, Madras. They established well-known commercial houses engaged in trade with overseas markets. Image
Armenian merchants from Amsterdam went to Southeast Asia in the 19th century to trade, and to set up factories & plantations. Armenian merchants settled in parts of Java, as did Armenians moving east from the Persian Empire, establishing a community of Armenians in Java. Image
The dispersion of the Armenians over Southeast Asia took place almost simultaneously with the expansion of the English East India Company & Dutch East India Co. In all the main cities where these prominent commercial corporations established agents, Armenians were represented too ImageImage

#OTD Mar 21 1828, the #Armenia'n Oblast (province) was created out of the territories of the former Erivan & Nakhchivan khanates, which were ceded to #Russia by Qajar #Iran under the Treaty of Turkmenchay after the Russo-Iranian War of 1826-1828. #History Image
