A NATO-Russia Line of Fire in the Caucasus? Pro-NATO Georgia v. Pro-Russian Armenia

In the fiftieth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Vedomosti, and Komsomolskaya Pravda. He discusses the Russian government’s attitude toward the referendum for the independence of Catalonia and presents the outline of another possible NATO-Russia proxy conflict in the Caucasus region, the conflict between Georgians and Armenians. In addition, he examines the current state of the Russian economy and marks the two-year anniversary of the Russian military intervention in Syria by analyzing its results.

    Thank you, Filip…

  2. Thank you. As always informative and disturbing how many stupid games people are playing.

    I look for the EURO, and NATO, to fracture or dissolve. I don’t know what event will cause these events to occur.

  4. Just to note: Another factor in the conflict between the NATO dominated Georgian government and Russia which burst out in South Ossetia was the military training and support of the Georgian forces by Israel before the attack in 2008. This would, I think, indicate complex involvement of deep state interests in the conflict.

    • Gene:

      Our tech is currently working on the issue – which has to do with firewall changes to protect against attacks like those we suffered last week. He made a change a short while ago & asks those who are having problems to check again and report back whether the problem still exists or has been solved – please reply either here or directly on our contact page. Since we cannot re-create the problem here, we are dependent on our users who are having the problem for help.

      Thank you
