In November, Russia captured part of another’s land, neither through unidentified troops moving across a border, nor hybrid warfare, instead negotiating their capture in full sight and without a single question from the United States or the United States The fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh preceded annexation, the mountainous region is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, but a ceasefire between the two nations has been controlled by ethnic Armenians since 1994.The conflict flared up again in September, two months later A peace deal with Russia came out victorious: it brokered a ceasefire that laid the Kremlin’s supposedly peacekeeping boots on the ground America watched idly as this happened.As the traditional protector of Armenia, Russia had the only leverage to convince Armenia to use this weapon Signing the ceasefire By signing, Yerevan surrendered claims to the territories it had occupied in Azerbaijan since 1994 and won nothing – apart from a ceasefire instead of a forced surrender, Moscow received a in exchange for ensuring slightly less humiliation for its ally Gift and PresenceIn reality, unless America is ready to fully engage in the peace process, Nagorno-Karabakh is now Russia’s indefinitely.The Kremlin allegedly controls the territory for five years, with an automatic rollover for another five years , if none of the three parties to the ceasefire object six months before the end of the mandate, Russia certainly will not, It is now the gatekeeper of a region central to the diversification of energy supplies in Europe (reducing the role of Russian imports) If the region is of strategic importance to NATO, then it is of strategic importance to the Kremlin. Armenia wants peacekeepers to remain out of distrust of Azerbaijan.The brief but brutal conflict has clearly shown that Armenia cannot win militarily and that therefore ethnic Armenians Have to accept either the Azerbaijani governance or the Protectorate of Russia Yerevan is weak and broken, and finds it less humiliating to accept Russian tutelage in Nagorno-Karabakh, if only to deny complete victory to an archenemy, but this is a longer-term disaster for the country Armenians It means that they are effectively trapped in a Russian embrace and they cannot go west or east – diplomatically or for investment – because Russians are now in command, although Azerbaijan is traditionally viewed by Moscow as “on the other side” has it Due to the lukewarm support from the United States and the EU in recent years, diplomatic and economic relations with Russia have steadily deepened, partly due to the need and lack of seriousness of alternatives With the Russian military boots on Azerbaijani territory for the first time since the fall of the Soviet Union Moscow’s leverage has now also become an economic leverage: With the military guarantee of a transport corridor through Armenia to the Azerbaijani exclave Nakhichevan, which was closed before the ceasefire, Russia now controls Azerbaijan’s long-awaited direct overland route from the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean Sea and to Europe, the West would certainly have seen this coming can This is how it always starts: A household soon turns into a footprint Crimea, Eastern Ukraine, South Ossetia, Abkhazia – the list of examples goes on Russian presence becomes Russian contr olle: the only logic of Putin’s neozarist ambitions, in fact, the Kremlin is now maneuvering just a few weeks after the troop deployment: lines on maps have started to bend and bend On one side of the website of the Russian Defense Ministry, a map showing the area is displayed, in which Russian peacekeepers are to be stationed in accordance with the provisions of the agreement and for whose operation they are responsible By December 12th, the country they control had miraculously expanded, which was reverted back to the original the next day after diplomatic pressure from Azerbaijan, but this activity shows that Kremlin cartographers are getting creative – and very early on in the rumors of a Russian one “Passporting” on the rise in Nagorno-Karabakh The creation of new demographic realities on the ground by granting citizenship has been used to maintain influence on internal affairs in other post-Soviet countries. Once the Russians occupy the area, the Russian state must intervene Classics of the Kremlin Repertoire It preceded the invasion of Crimea This happened again in two regions of Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, before the wars broke out, with Russia emerging as the main beneficiary. Recently, passporting in eastern Ukraine has become aggressive through a helpful streamlined process Deployed The Kremlin predicts that by the end of the year there will be over a million Russian citizens carrying re-minted documents In all of these situations, Russia’s grip is secure, passporting would mean a negotiated solution on the final status of Nagorno-Karabakh – which is in Azerbaijan as should be a form of autonomy in Soviet days – it will never materialize.It will instead turn into a Russian passport protectorate, giving Russia the pretext – or in the Moscow lexicon, the legal right – to jump into the region if an imaginary one A threat to its “citizens” arises If you look at the US.It is surprising that no more precautionary measures are being taken in the South Caucasus as aid is now flowing to Ukraine after the destabilization of Russia, but there is still time for America to intervene: the ceasefire will give way to negotiations for a definitive peace agreement, and much remains to be done decide the US must speak out fully and comprehensively against passporting American companies should invest in infrastructure and energy projects in the region in order to limit Russia’s room for maneuver. And duSJoint investment initiatives between Armenia and Azerbaijan would help reduce both of their dependence on Russia, so it’s time for America to step up diplomatic and economic efforts and re-engage in this process, otherwise the Russian Empire will continue to expand unhindered

At first glance, the Mawat district in northeast Iraq is a rustic idyll, a belt of rolling hills lined with olive and fruit groves. On closer inspection – as many visitors have learned the hard way – it is full of hidden dangers What looks like a Tuscany in the Middle East was once at the forefront of the eight-year Iraq war against Iran, in which Saddam Hussein’s army laid huge numbers of landmines. Countless Russian and Italian anti-personnel devices lurk in its canyons and orchards – all of them still there fatal Despite almost 30 years of demining work, more than half is left today – a blatant reminder of the extent of the so-called “legacy mine” threat in former war zones. “We get many requests from mayors and villagers to clear the area,” says Jabar Fatih Mahmoud, 49, an Iraqi employee with the Mines Advisory Group, the UK charity organization when he showed The Telegraph in a minefield listed on his minefield clearance card as ‘Kalka Shenka 2C’ “But this region is popular with picnickers too, and not everyone knows the mines are here” The minefields at Mawat and the surrounding governorate by Sulaymaniyah are a grim example of how such weapons are used not only for military purposes, but also for the active punishment of the civilian population

Britain has been forced to make concessions, but the final Brexit trade deal comes far closer to Britain’s demand for a Canadian-style deal than the EU’s desired trade partnership From the moment Lord David Frost was appointed chief negotiator, Was sovereignty incorporated into the British negotiating strategy for the trade agreement? Great Britain could no longer be subject to any foreign power and must be able to independently set its own rules independently of Brussels.If Lord Frost does not achieve this goal, he made it clear to his team, and the point of Brexit would be lost.This decision has ramifications for future trade relations with the EU.It will never be as easy or smooth as it was when the UK was a member.It also meant abandoning the temptation to become a rule-maker without one Right to have a say in the drafting To have EU rules and regulations in return for easier trade and more money The dust of the negotiations still settles, but some of Lord Frost’s victories are already clear
