Stepanakert's airport would be handed to Azerbaijan , according to some sources .Waiting for confirmation.
The Russian Federation was founded in 1991.
I don't mean to be pedantic but the Russian Federation is not the same as the USSR/ Russian Empire/Kiev Rus etc.
There have also been centuries of Turkic/Altaic rule over Russia, which left a significant genetic footprint. Should the Russians be thankful towards the Mongols/Golden Horde Turks too?
Armenia doesn't display Russian flags, true. Not very smart. But Azerbaijan shoots Russian helicopters out of the sky, breaks treaties, cuddles up with main antogoniser Erdo and permits CIA, Mossad and MI-6 to operate from its soil. NATO/Turkish bases might come in the future
The rest is something I agree with
It is quite ironic that you accuse me of not understanding the conflict whilst completely ignoring the main player.
What Russia wants is irrelevant. It is not in a position to lay down the law anywhere. Not even in its own backyard as you can see.
NATO treats the Russian Federation as the direct successor of the USSR. Likewise it's raison d'etre is molded around doing to the Russian Federation what it did to the USSR in 1990-1992. It has now evolved into open warfare on Russia's borders yet Putin seems to hold back
NATO's strategy of expantionism is built around creating an Iron Fence. Russia needs to be surrounded by NATO bases. They incite civil unrest in Russia friendly states+ border nations. They stir up anti-Russian feelings, and demonise Russian culture /history/ people. They engage in economic warfare by sanctions.
NATO is doing a tremendous job. In my opinion this conflict was another net win. The ceasefire is unsustainable as NATO/Turkey were largely left out - there are daily violations already. It's only a matter of time before the Azeris chimp out - no doubt supported by Turkey/NATO. When that happens Putin will have to do what he's been trying to avoid these past weeks. The unfortunate thing is that till that day the Armenians will have to live in limbo
"NATO" is becoming irrelevant, its main elements are in a steep social and economic decline. Things aren't so bad in your home country, but the US, France, Italy, Canada are falling apart with social strife and economic distress not seen since the mid/early 20th century.
Russia's economy is sound, it's become a viable, independent economy with large reserves and great resources, it can ride China's BRI coattails, sit back this decade and watch the civil war unfold in Paris, DC, Seattle or Atlanta under the parasitic grip of the eugenicist globalist elites that run the "free world". It's kind of the reverse of the 1980s/90s, when the Soviets were military giants with feet of clay and the West still had an economically vibrant middle class, relatively low immigration rates and relatively sane family lives.
I don't think anyone in eastern europe would go to war with russia - unless to defend against an invasion of course.NATO has hundreds of thousands if not millions of Russia-hating Turks, Eastern Europeans and if needed jihadists ready to do the heavy lifting for them.

They dislike them but they're not stupid.
Turks and jihadis are another story, but I wouldn't put both in the same basket either.
It's not just always straight corruption, the NATO/EU faction also has an ideological angle with globalism being equated with modernism and progress. They think that if they join NATO and the EU, they will instantly become like Germany. A lot of this indotrination is done through soft power by media and NGOs.
Of course, any good corruption is indirect corruption.It's not just always straight corruption, the NATO/EU faction also has an ideological angle with globalism being equated with modernism and progress.
