The analyst said that Armenia was an official partner of Russia in the South Caucasus. “Armenia is only country in the region allowing Russia to deploy its military base in its territory. In August 2010, Armenia and Russia signed an agreement on prolongation of deployment period until 2044. The main goal of the Gumru military base is to control Turkey in the south, Georgia in the north and Azerbaijan in the east. Russia strengthens its security perimeter in the region by this agreement and guarantees Armenia’s border security. It hints to Azerbaijan not to attempt to get back Nagorno Karabakh by force”.

Commenting on Russian-Azerbaijan relations, the political analyst said Azerbaijan took an important place for Russia in the regional energy policy. “Despite that Russia expressed its willingness to endure Baku’s close relations with the Western oil giants, as well as with Turkey, but Moscow doesn’t like Washington’s support of Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan to modernize their naval forces. Russia states that the Caspian Sea belongs only to the littoral states. Outside countries can not deal with the Caspian security problems. In response to US “Caspian guard” initiative, Russia proposed to found CASFOR, the naval forces of the Caspian littoral states.
