“The world’s second military power”, as Russia had been referred to before it waged war in Ukraine, is reportedly suffering from a severe shortage of both lethal and non-lethal weapons, including drones and missiles. Under sanctions, when it is impossible to obtain arms components and military goods in the usual way, the aggressor is forced to rely on supplies from rogue countries and their accomplices. One of the main accomplices ensuring the supply of sanctioned goods to Russia is Armenia – writes James Wilson.

Nesveti savez između Rusije, Irana i Armenije pojavio se unatoč fokusu na zapadne vrijednosti koje je proglasio premijer Armenije Nikol Pashinyan. Djela govore više od riječi: niz lako provjerljivih činjenica nedvosmisleno svjedoči da Armenija služi kao glavno središte za opskrbu sankcioniranom (uključujući vojnu) robom koja podržava rusku agresiju u Ukrajini i osigurava izravnu vezu između Irana i Rusije.

Iran prepoznaje armensku sigurnost kao svoj glavni prioritet

In a year of the war in Ukraine, the president of Iran has made several statements emphasising the importance of relations with Armenia and advocated its intensification. “Iran smatra Armeniju bliskom i prijateljskom zemljom” said Raisi on June 2.

“Armenia intends to develop relations with Iran što je moguće više i na svim područjima,” Armenian Prime Minister Pashinyan echoed him on October 1.

“Armenia’s security is Iran’s security,” Iran’s Foreign Affairs minister proglašen on October 20. The next day, his Armenian counterpart emphasised that relations between the two countries were based on “a profound understanding of the zajednički prirodni interesi država” On 11 February this year, President Khachaturyan reiterated, “The Republic of Armenia is keen to expand and deepen mutually beneficial cooperation between Armenia and Iran za stabilnost regije i dobrobit naših naroda"

Armensko ministarstvo obrane je 30. listopada priznalo da je Iran isporučio napadačke bespilotne letjelice, a u istom mjesecu Iranci su donirali 600 projektila Armencima. 1. studenog Pashinyan je dočekan u Teheranu: potpisan je memorandum o razumijevanju i suradnji u energetskoj sferi.

Oglas

Sve navedeno potvrđuje da dvije zemlje jedna drugu vide kao strateške saveznike. I jedni i drugi dijele napetosti s jednim susjedom, Azerbajdžanom, a oslanjaju se na dobre odnose s drugim, Rusijom.

Neviđeno povećanje trgovinskog prometa i diplomatskih veza

It is symbolic that the trade turnover between the two countries increased sharply against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine: in 2022 Armenia’s exports to Iran totalled $111.2 million, a 70% increase over the previous year; Iranian imports to Armenia totalled $599.7 million, porast od 37%.

Čini se da je značajan dio ovog povećanja posljedica korištenja armenskog teritorija kao pretovarne točke za prijenos sankcionirane robe, oružja i dronova iz Irana u Rusiju. Geografski položaj Armenije, koja graniči s obje zemlje, osigurava praktički nekontrolirano kretanje tereta iz Irana u Rusiju, zaobilazeći sve sankcije.

Ovo izgleda posebno cinično u pozadini Armenije koja optužuje Azerbejdžan za ilegalni transfer oružja u Nagorno-Karabah kroz Lachinski koridor. No, dvostruki standardi armenskog vodstva ne odnose se samo na transport oružja, već i na politička događanja, što dovoljno govori o njihovoj pravoj vrijednosti.

An eye-opener that went unnoticed in the West testifies to the level of Yerevan’s official support for Iran’s theocratic regime: soon after the brutal suppression of protests in Iran, one of the main reasons for which was severe discrimination against women, the wife of Armenian Prime Minister Hakobyan visited Tehran. There, on 18 January, she took part in the “First International Congress of Powerful Women” u organizaciji vlasti. On February 27, Iran’s foreign minister acknowledged her participation in this važan događaj za režim.

Jednako je znakovito da je mjesec i pol dana ranije, 24. studenog, Armenija imala izgovoreno protiv a resolution of a special session of the UN General Assembly’s Human Rights Council, entitled “The deteriorating human rights situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran”. It noted “the need to bring human rights violations to justice”.

All these facts convincingly reveal Yerevan’s true foreign policy priorities, much more than bland statements by individual officials about their desire to refocus on the West. For Armenia, the West is no more than a situational ally, useful when it comes to achieving its own objectives, such as the recognition of the Armenian genocide or securing its illegal claims to Azerbaijani lands in Nagorno-Karabakh. Its true allies reside in Moscow and Tehran. Ukrainians should know where to send their thank you notes when the Russians are shelling their cities or attacking their infrastructure with Iranian drones. To Yerevan, without love.
