PUTIN: ‘We Will Defend Our CSTO Allies, Including Armenia’

Russian President Vladimir Putin called the ongoing military face-off in disputed Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) “a tragedy” and indicated his willingness to honor Russia’s long-standing mutual defense treaty with Armenia, if the country required such help.

Speaking to the Rossiya TV network, Putin noted that two million Azerbaijanis and over two million Armenians live in Russia, and that a huge number of Russian citizens maintain “close, friendly and even familial relations with both republics”.
