Kommersant's GRU sources detail Turkey's allegedly direct involvement in planning and executing Azerbaijan's attack on Karabakh, including MoD chief Akar exercising general command of the combat operations against Karabakh kommersant.ru/doc/4537733#id…
If confirmed, Turkish defense minister Akar's decision to personally exercising general command of Azerbaijan's offensives against Karabakh, would be unprecedented, at least in 21st century.
When was the last time, a defense minister of one country would personally command armed forces of another country and his country's proxies in war outside his country?
More importantly, how does a NATO member's decision to dispatch its defense minister and mercenaries to another country to respectively command and execute a full-blown offensive reflect on the alliance, as a whole, and square with its mission? nato.int/nato-welcome/i…
Macron diagnosed NATO as brain-dead,citing Turkey's incursion into Syria as a symptom. I disagree. To me, that incursion & Turkey's encouragement and direct involvement in Karabakh war = symptoms of Tourette Syndrome: the brain's no control over some parts' movements and sounds.

When Bakiyev asked RF/CSTO to intervene to nip 2010 color rev against him in 2010, Putin ignored. Hwvr, when Lukashenko made a similar plea, P promised “comprehensive security assistance” according to L. If L’s claim true, then why P’d intervene in RB in 2020, but not KR in 2010?
I have tried answer the question of what necessary and sufficient conditions, under which Putin's Russia intervenes militarily, are here themoscowtimes.com/2018/04/25/why… and here russiamatters.org/analysis/when-…
Condition 1 (so far absent) a new threat to vital RF national interests that, in Putin’s view, cant be dealt with in any other way short of mil. intervention. It’d materialize, however, if L is not just replaced, but replaced by leader determined to pivot Belarus toward West.
