Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

    That's a great possibility,but with that action Russia will show the opposite of what she's trying to prove, which is that they are dominant super power and don't fear puppet states like Azerbaijan,specially if alliance,deals and contracts are going between Armenians and Russians in the larger picture.

        There are some stuff happening around and we don't know.
        1)Russia wants Azerbaijan in ECU. How will they make them join ECU?
        2)Signing agreements of joint Air defense systems (assuming they will lend us some S-300's for free as part of the agreement just like how they gave to Belarus and Kazakhstan) with Armenia (after when Armenia is signing more papers with Nato) which will give Armenia more guarantees that they will protect us from Turkish invasion (from the first sight). What is Russia's next step regarding Armenia?
        3)Russia not solving the NKR problem since it no longer will be able to sell this huge amount of weaponry to the both sides.

            ARTSAKH REPUBLIC PRESIDENT NOT GOING TO PROVIDE STEPANAKERT AIRPORT FOR RUSSIA ANTI-TERRORIST OPERATIONS

            11:54, 13 November, 2015

            YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 13, ARMENPRESS. President of the Artsakh Republic
            Bako Sahakyan did not say during Moscow press conference that he was
            going to provide Stepanakert airport to Russia for anti-terrorist
            operations. NKR President's spokesperson David Babayan said the
            aforementioned to "Armenpress" clarifying the information which
            initiated heated discussions in media. According to the information
            Bako Sahakyan declared during Moscow press conference about the
            readiness of Karabakh authorities to provide Stepanakert airport to
            Russia for anti-terrorist operations.

            "President did not say he was ready to provide Stepanakert airport
            to Russia for fight against terrorism. He spoke of the airports'
            possible participation and not its provision. President Bako Sahakyan
            said that once the airport was completely exploited, the issue of
            NKR's participation in anti-terrorist operations might be discussed"
            spokesman said.

            In reference to REGNUM publication, Babayan said that the news agency
            had released such information to attract more readers. There was a
            question and then an answer voiced that when the airport was exploited
            the issue of NKR's participation in anti-terrorist operations might
            be discussed. Babayan added that it was an issue of the future and
            there was no need to hurry.

            REGNUM news agency had spread information on November 12 that NKR
            President Bako Sahakyan had expressed readiness to provide Stepanakert
            airport to Russia for anti-terrorist operations. The latter information
            was spread by a number of Armenian and Russian media.

              2 Armenian Soldiers Killed In Fresh Karabakh Fighting

              Azatutyun - The Armenian military accused Azerbaijan of again heightening tensions in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone and pledged to strike back hard on Friday after two Armenian soldiers were killed near Karabakh.
              Karabakh’s Armenian-backed Defense Army said the conscripts, Vahe Vanoyan and Mikael Torosian, were fatally wounded late on Thursday when Azerbaijani troops violated the ceasefire at a southern section of “the line of contact” around the disputed territory. The army gave no details of the incident, saying only that it has launched an investigation.
              Armenia’s Defense Ministry strongly condemned the truce violation and accused Baku of ignoring international mediators’ appeals. “Despite being mindful of the fact that this action will not remain without consequences and the guilty will be punished, Azerbaijan’s military-political leadership is once again opting for an escalation of the situation,” it said in a statement.
              The statement said that Azerbaijani attacks on Armenian frontline positions are “intensifying by the day” despite efforts by the U.S., Russian and French mediators to ease tensions on the Armenian-Azerbaijani frontlines and kick-start the Karabakh peace process.
              The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry did not immediately respond to these accusations. It claimed earlier in the day that the two Armenian soldiers were killed during a commando raid on an Azerbaijani army unit.
              The incident occurred less than two months after the most recent upsurge in fighting along “the line of contact” and the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. On September 23, three female residents of Armenian border villages were killed by mortar shells fired from nearby Azerbaijani army positions.
              Two days later, four Armenian soldiers died near Karabakh in an Azerbaijani artillery strike which triggered retaliatory action by Karabakh Armenian forces. At least four Azerbaijani soldiers were killed in the following days.
              The American, Russian and French diplomats co-heading the OSCE Minsk Group blamed both warring sides for that escalation and condemned them for increasingly using mortars and other heavy weapons in their skirmishes. The mediators also urged Azerbaijan to accept their long-standing proposal to set up a mechanism for international investigations of ceasefire violations. The Armenian side has repeatedly backed the idea.
              The warring sides reported no major armed incidents in October and beginning of this month. The mediators visited Yerevan, Stepanakert and Baku late last month. In an ensuing joint statement, they said that the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan have agreed to meet in December and try to revive the search for a mutually acceptable settlement.

But stop blaming Russians for everything, some people want to see Russia everywhere to justify their own bias/hatred against Russians. When Serzh Sargsyan was Defense Minister, he moronically said "Aghdam is not Armenian"... sometimes we moronically shoot ourselves in the foot. We made many mistakes with Artsakh from the start and can blame only ourselves. Like not recognizing Artsakh in 1993 while we had military momentum, like not pushing for Artsakh to be a party on negotiating table in 1993 alongside Armenia etc. Letting Madrid principles (not Russia) dictate that we unilaterally give back territories is another one of our own mistakes.

                The good news is, that's why Artsakh talks aren't going anywhere and will never go anywhere. This will be resolved in the next war.

                As a side note, Tigranakert ruins are officially in Aghdam. You think we will hand that over?
                Armenia, Karabakh Deny Russian Pressure


                Senior officials in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh dismissed on Thursday a Russian newspaper report which has fueled renewed speculation that Russia is pressuring the Armenian side to make unilateral territorial concessions to Azerbaijan.

                Writing on Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s latest visit to Yerevan, the Moscow daily “Kommersant” said earlier this week that one possible Armenian-Azerbaijani peace deal currently under discussion envisages the liberation of virtually all districts around Karabakh that were occupied by Karabakh Armenian forces during the 1991-1994 war. In return, it claimed, Baku would only pledge not to try to reconquer Karabakh itself.

                The paper, which cited anonymous Russian sources, made no mention of other elements of the Basic Principles of a Karabakh settlement put forward by the U.S., Russian and French co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group. Those include a future referendum in Karabakh on the disputed territory’s internationally recognized status.

                Some Armenian commentators and media outlets have seized upon the “Kommersant” report to renew their allegations that Moscow is seeking unilateral Armenian concessions to Baku as part of its efforts to lure Azerbaijan into the Russian-led Eurasian Economic Union (EEU). They claim that this was the main purpose of Lavrov’s talks in Yerevan with President Serzh Sarkisian and Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian.

                One of Nalbandian’s deputies, Karen Nazarian, brushed aside the speculation. “It’s possible that there was a discussion [with Lavrov] on the overall process of resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, but I don’t think that such an issue was on the agenda,” Nazarian told reporters.

                “Putting aside certain elements [of the Basic Principles] and discussing them separately is unacceptable not only to us but also the co-chairs,” he said.

                A senior Karabakh official, Davit Babayan, also denied the alleged Russian pressure. He argued that while in Yerevan Lavrov publicly criticized lawmakers from the Council of Europe for approving a pro-Azerbaijani draft resolution on the Karabakh conflict.

                Babayan also said that a unilateral Armenian withdrawal from the territories around Karabakh would only increase the risk of another Armenian-Azerbaijani war. “If something in this [status quo] changes then there will be unpredictable developments that would make the South Caucasus a more severe warzone than Syria and Iraq put together,” he told RFE/RL’s Armenian service (Azatutyun.am). “And this would not be beneficial for Russia.”

                The authorities in Yerevan and Stepanakert have long said that territorial concessions to Baku must be tied to an agreement on Karabakh’s status.

                Aghvan Vartanian, a leader of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation, an opposition party known for its hard line on Karabakh, insisted on Thursday that the Armenian government will be swept from power if it agrees to drop this linkage. “I therefore rule that out,” he said. “No government will do that. A government making such unilateral concessions would no longer be a government.”
