Robert Kocharian said : "We are facing a dilemma, which has always been in the negotiation process. If you announce an end in the negotiation process, this is part of Karabakh, and we do not discuss this topic at all, you say, ‘What else to negotiate, there is no topic to negotiate. Negotiations must stop, and the parties must prepare for war.’ That, too, is a solution, but it has a great risk for the parties, and it is difficult for the representatives of the state to make such a decision. Now I am not in office, I cannot say, now others can say. Different parties can say, and they are right to say because it is a really sensitive topic, and it must be kept in the teeth in order to get the best possible solution. But look, it is a pity that there is no map here. What are those territories? They are simply an integral part of our security. When that line was being drawn at that time, it was being drawn first of all to ensure our security. At that time, it was not being drawn about ancestral lands, at that time security was important. Now look, it was 28 kilometers from Hadrut region, from Hadrut point to Araks point. Now imagine those southern regions are returned to Azerbaijan. How many kilometers will 28 km turn into? Just imagine on the map. It will come like this, turn around, under Lachin until to Meghri. How many times does it grow? Imagine Kelbajar. Now there is an Omar. A piece of mountain range. Now imagine that Kelbajar suddenly returned, that one piece is replaced․ How long is the contact line? I made such an approximate calculation for myself. You have about 6-8 times more contact line with much more complicated geographical relief. And to ensure the same security on that new line of contact, you have to increase your army 3-4 times. At least the minimum density for soldiers and artillery and other large weapons, at least to ensure the minimum quantity, in times. This is not complicated or difficult; this is impossible. We do not have that many people. Armenia cannot keep an army of 200,000 with a population of 3 million or less. And I can say unequivocally that without those territories it is impossible to keep the security of Armenia and Karabakh at a proper level by our own forces; and the dilemma is here. So this should be the starting point for us. Now the question arises: And what if someone guarantees? Now in this changing world of today, for how many years should that guarantee be? One year, 5 years, 50 years? For example, I think it takes at least 50 years, 100 years. The Hong Kong issue was a 100-year contract. You cannot make such decisions on the horizon of 1-5 years. Now, then, what kind of guarantees should be here for us to believe that all this will not ‘explode’ in 2 years or 5 years, especially, I repeat, in today's world? We saw what the Americans did to the Kurds. We saw Afghanistan when it came out at the time, Afghanistan came out in political events, the Afghan government could not stand it for a week. Now, for example, I have clear approaches to what can be done, what needs to be done, clear solutions. I do not event want to talk about it because today the people dealing with those issues have something special: they have a talent to spoil everything. Do you know what Armenia's approach is today? Did you understand that? Just take a map and look. There is a special tool on the map, it is a very primitive tool, it measures the kilometer. This is really one of the most difficult parts of resolving this conflict. ‘The dog's head,’ they say, where it is kept, is here," External link

Robert Kocharian said ( about Heidar Aliev ) : "It is important to have a combat-ready army only to start a large-scale war in the first month. In two weeks all the specialists will say: we must understand whether we have combat-ready reservists, whether we have enough weapons and ammunition to replenish, and depending on the intensity of the war, we must understand what the level of mobilization of the country from manageability stand point today. The war can last for a long time, it can last for months, it can last for years. Now the fight against coronavirus has shown that there is no manageability of the mobilization resource. You can have a combat-ready army, and that combat-ready army exists, and it was created during many years and under the great attention and participation of all the authorities. And it is very good that the political figures have not yet entered the army and have not yet managed to harm with their activities. The army is still under the influence of professional circles. But I repeat, we must look at security in a slightly broader context. Then we have to correctly guess what processes are in front of us, where is our world going, are we doing our steps right or not? I might draw such a parallel. Little is said about it now. The guarantee of our success in Karabakh was not only the struggle of the people, not only the readiness to fight, to die on the battlefield, but also three important circumstances: We realized earlier than Azerbaijan that the Soviet Union was collapsing. They do not talk about it now, maybe it has not even become a topic of discussion for political scientists, but we understood earlier. For example, at the end of [19]88, I was asking myself if the Soviet Union was going to collapse, what were we going to do, how was it going to happen? In mid-[19]89 we were already asking each other what would happen if the Soviet [Union] collapsed. A huge contingent of internal troops was stationed in Karabakh, they were working against us, but also did not allow large-scale conflicts. Our boys were caught and handed over to Azerbaijan. They worked against us, but did not allow a large-scale conflict. What did we start doing now? We started to put all our efforts directly, apart from rallies, strikes, on the creation of detachments. From the beginning, in the mid-[19]88, I spent more time on it than on my political activities. At the same time, Azerbaijan hoped that they would destroy us with the help of internal troops, put pressure on us, impose the solutions they wanted on us. To some extent, they did it within the framework of the famous ‘Ring’ operation north of Shahumyan, south of Hadrut. But when the Soviet [Union] collapsed, it turned out that we have quite combat-ready detachments, which have gained some experience, Azerbaijan does not have; this played a decisive role. Second circumstance: We concentrated power in Karabakh a year earlier than Azerbaijan. Year [19]92, August, the State Defense Committee completed its power from one point, military, civilian, we had entered the mobilization management. Azerbaijan entered this situation in September [19]93, approximately, when [former Azerbaijan president Heydar] Aliyev returned with his person’s standing, and it took several months before he was able to regain everything, during which all the liberated territories were under our control. And the third: We were the first to move from the detachments to the formation of a single army. This large-scale activity also started in August [19]92, in a very dry way; Azerbaijan started it also a year later. We were faster in all these issues, they were lagging behind. And we, in fact, being much weaker in terms of resources, have solved an issue for which nations get a chance every 100 years, maybe every 1,000 years. It is the chance that you can lose everything, or you can make your dream come true. Now we did it, we did it because we were oriented at the right time. Now is the time, the world is also entering a rather complicated process, and a proactive policy is needed here as well. Do you have that intellectual potential in Armenia today or not, what do you see? Do you see proactive steps now, with which we try to move forward, to orient ourselves correctly, not to fall into traps, maybe having some risk, but to advance our national interests within a reasonable framework? I do not see, if you see, say. That part that I told about Karabakh, as it was left out of scientific things, was left out of expert circles, to all this was added the will of the people. But if we did not make those decisions in time, if those orientations had not been, it is a big question how all this would have ended. And from that point of view, the Karabakh elite was oriented correctly, the leadership of the movement; it's not just about me, it's about a group of people," External link

Robert Kocharian said : “The negotiations will continue. The question is whether they will be effective or not. The last statement was about substantive negotiations. This was what Azerbaijan always demanded. There is something troubling since substantive is a matter of content and territories. There will be negotiations, but I don’t think the sides will reach an agreement. I don’t know if there will be pressure or not. The mandate of the OSCE Minsk Group implies persuading the sides to finally settle the conflict, not impose a settlement. In essence, Armenia doesn’t have a position, and the formula [a solution that will satisfy all sides] is not a position. It is a nice wish. What I don’t understand is when Karabakh says its and Armenia’s approaches are the same. Armenia doesn’t have an approach or position, and if there is no clear position, the next proposal will not be in your favor. I view Turkey’s factor as an element for not only the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, but an overall security issue. I get the impression that Turkey’s military exercises and the country’s coarse position have always helped defend Azerbaijan, but there has never been this much willingness. Turkey is trying to counterbalance Russia to a certain extent, and this is my impression. Turkey will be the factor that Russia has to always talk to, reckon with. When Turkey entered Syria, it established its presence, and it is clear that the Syrian issue can’t be resolved without Turkey. Now the Turks are trying to do the same in the South Caucasus. If this happens, Armenia will lose, and it has to do something to go against this. However, Armenia isn’t doing anything. I even think that the government doesn’t have an analysis of what I’m saying. Turkey has shown that it is much more independent. Turkey has great ambitions, and it has always had an eye on the South Caucasus. Today, it is taking very practical and daring steps to try to establish its presence,” External link

Now the fact that those funds and circles are shutting an eye on all of these illegal acts, and the one shutting an eye is the West, which would zoom in on every incident and issue statements during the administration of the former authorities, shows that they still haven’t gotten ultimately disappointed, but there are certain indicators that show that the funds and circles are starting to lose patience,” External link

Robert Kocharian added ( about Levon Ter Petrossian ) : "Identifying Karabakh with Armenia is the red line that should not be crossed. It is the instruction where it should be written in red, ‘Don’t do [it]!’ Because the first is not the same. During my presidency in Karabakh, we have always been a partner with Armenia, we have had serious contradictions; [but] we have never made those contradictions a topic of public discussion. But there were issues about the return of Kelbajar, the liberation of Aghdam and other regions. Yes, there were serious contradictions, but we did our job, and then sat down at the negotiating table, tried to find common ground, to reconcile, not to be hostile, but we did not given up our long-term goals just to have good relations. We did not refuse. And, in honor of the authorities of that time, I can say that they, too, were not turning the tension of those relations into an end in themselvesto put pressure on Karabakh to some extent, to deprive of money, to stop the funding, not to send weapons; there was no such thing. Now the danger is in that. We were a partner, now they have subjugated Karabakh; I see a great danger in this. First, we lose the loophole in different approaches in the negotiation process because there were times when [Armenia’s First President Levon] Ter-Petrosyan simply said that, ‘Now the people of Karabakh do not listen to me, what should I do? Go and convince [them]!’ And it was not a theater, it was a natural situation, he could not say anything. You dismiss anyone you want in Karabakh, you appoint whoever you want. You cannot say that the people of Karabakh do not accept this or that approach. Now bringing the status of a subordinate from the status of a partner causes serious damage to the whole process and, by the way, to the security of Karabakh. I generalize a little, but I also do not forget the specific matter. Yes, there have been contradictions. [But] it didn’t happen that I did not communicate with [Artsakh ex-President] Arkadi Ghukasyan for months, but Arkadi Ghukasyan persistently defended, and in general, Karabakh should be much more radical in the negotiation process than Armenia. There were things I did not like, but deep down I was convinced he was doing the right thing, and I was glad he was doing the right thing. At that moment you may not like it a little, but the next day you say, ‘He is doing the right thing.’ Associating is the most dangerous thing," External link

Robert Kocharian asked : "Given Azerbaijan's position which is voiced today, I simply do not see how a settlement can take place. There is just one fact: The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic has never been part of independent Azerbaijan; that is a fact. The legal basis for the creation of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is flawless; I wrote that declaration. During the secession of the republic, the constitution of the Soviet Union at that time was weak, the autonomy, even the national minorities living in densely populated areas decided their fate through referendums solely in accordance with the working legislation. And the third factor is the fact of the existence of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic for almost thirty years; soon for 30 years, a year later. Moreover, it develops effectively, even more effectively preserves and protects its borders. And today Baku denies the objective reality of these thirty years.

Robert Kocharian said : "We are facing a dilemma, which has always been in the negotiation process. If you announce an end in the negotiation process, this is part of Karabakh, and we do not discuss this topic at all, you say, ‘What else to negotiate, there is no topic to negotiate. Negotiations must stop, and the parties must prepare for war.’ That, too, is a solution, but it has a great risk for the parties, and it is difficult for the representatives of the state to make such a decision. Now I am not in office, I cannot say, now others can say. Different parties can say, and they are right to say because it is a really sensitive topic, and it must be kept in the teeth in order to get the best possible solution. But look, it is a pity that there is no map here. What are those territories? They are simply an integral part of our security. When that line was being drawn at that time, it was being drawn first of all to ensure our security. At that time, it was not being drawn about ancestral lands, at that time security was important. Now look, it was 28 kilometers from Hadrut region, from Hadrut point to Araks point. Now imagine those southern regions are returned to Azerbaijan. How many kilometers will 28 km turn into? Just imagine on the map. It will come like this, turn around, under Lachin until to Meghri. How many times does it grow? Imagine Kelbajar. Now there is an Omar. A piece of mountain range. Now imagine that Kelbajar suddenly returned, that one piece is replaced․ How long is the contact line? I made such an approximate calculation for myself. You have about 6-8 times more contact line with much more complicated geographical relief. And to ensure the same security on that new line of contact, you have to increase your army 3-4 times. At least the minimum density for soldiers and artillery and other large weapons, at least to ensure the minimum quantity, in times. This is not complicated or difficult; this is impossible. We do not have that many people. Armenia cannot keep an army of 200,000 with a population of 3 million or less. And I can say unequivocally that without those territories it is impossible to keep the security of Armenia and Karabakh at a proper level by our own forces; and the dilemma is here. So this should be the starting point for us. Now the question arises: And what if someone guarantees? Now in this changing world of today, for how many years should that guarantee be? One year, 5 years, 50 years? For example, I think it takes at least 50 years, 100 years. The Hong Kong issue was a 100-year contract. You cannot make such decisions on the horizon of 1-5 years. Now, then, what kind of guarantees should be here for us to believe that all this will not ‘explode’ in 2 years or 5 years, especially, I repeat, in today's world? We saw what the Americans did to the Kurds. We saw Afghanistan when it came out at the time, Afghanistan came out in political events, the Afghan government could not stand it for a week. Now, for example, I have clear approaches to what can be done, what needs to be done, clear solutions. I do not event want to talk about it because today the people dealing with those issues have something special: they have a talent to spoil everything. Do you know what Armenia's approach is today? Did you understand that? Just take a map and look. There is a special tool on the map, it is a very primitive tool, it measures the kilometer. This is really one of the most difficult parts of resolving this conflict. ‘The dog's head,’ they say, where it is kept, is here," External link

Robert Kocharian said ( about Heidar Aliev ) : "It is important to have a combat-ready army only to start a large-scale war in the first month. In two weeks all the specialists will say: we must understand whether we have combat-ready reservists, whether we have enough weapons and ammunition to replenish, and depending on the intensity of the war, we must understand what the level of mobilization of the country from manageability stand point today. The war can last for a long time, it can last for months, it can last for years. Now the fight against coronavirus has shown that there is no manageability of the mobilization resource. You can have a combat-ready army, and that combat-ready army exists, and it was created during many years and under the great attention and participation of all the authorities. And it is very good that the political figures have not yet entered the army and have not yet managed to harm with their activities. The army is still under the influence of professional circles. But I repeat, we must look at security in a slightly broader context. Then we have to correctly guess what processes are in front of us, where is our world going, are we doing our steps right or not? I might draw such a parallel. Little is said about it now. The guarantee of our success in Karabakh was not only the struggle of the people, not only the readiness to fight, to die on the battlefield, but also three important circumstances: We realized earlier than Azerbaijan that the Soviet Union was collapsing. They do not talk about it now, maybe it has not even become a topic of discussion for political scientists, but we understood earlier. For example, at the end of [19]88, I was asking myself if the Soviet Union was going to collapse, what were we going to do, how was it going to happen? In mid-[19]89 we were already asking each other what would happen if the Soviet [Union] collapsed. A huge contingent of internal troops was stationed in Karabakh, they were working against us, but also did not allow large-scale conflicts. Our boys were caught and handed over to Azerbaijan. They worked against us, but did not allow a large-scale conflict. What did we start doing now? We started to put all our efforts directly, apart from rallies, strikes, on the creation of detachments. From the beginning, in the mid-[19]88, I spent more time on it than on my political activities. At the same time, Azerbaijan hoped that they would destroy us with the help of internal troops, put pressure on us, impose the solutions they wanted on us. To some extent, they did it within the framework of the famous ‘Ring’ operation north of Shahumyan, south of Hadrut. But when the Soviet [Union] collapsed, it turned out that we have quite combat-ready detachments, which have gained some experience, Azerbaijan does not have; this played a decisive role. Second circumstance: We concentrated power in Karabakh a year earlier than Azerbaijan. Year [19]92, August, the State Defense Committee completed its power from one point, military, civilian, we had entered the mobilization management. Azerbaijan entered this situation in September [19]93, approximately, when [former Azerbaijan president Heydar] Aliyev returned with his person’s standing, and it took several months before he was able to regain everything, during which all the liberated territories were under our control. And the third: We were the first to move from the detachments to the formation of a single army. This large-scale activity also started in August [19]92, in a very dry way; Azerbaijan started it also a year later. We were faster in all these issues, they were lagging behind. And we, in fact, being much weaker in terms of resources, have solved an issue for which nations get a chance every 100 years, maybe every 1,000 years. It is the chance that you can lose everything, or you can make your dream come true. Now we did it, we did it because we were oriented at the right time. Now is the time, the world is also entering a rather complicated process, and a proactive policy is needed here as well. Do you have that intellectual potential in Armenia today or not, what do you see? Do you see proactive steps now, with which we try to move forward, to orient ourselves correctly, not to fall into traps, maybe having some risk, but to advance our national interests within a reasonable framework? I do not see, if you see, say. That part that I told about Karabakh, as it was left out of scientific things, was left out of expert circles, to all this was added the will of the people. But if we did not make those decisions in time, if those orientations had not been, it is a big question how all this would have ended. And from that point of view, the Karabakh elite was oriented correctly, the leadership of the movement; it's not just about me, it's about a group of people," External link

Robert Kocharian said : “The negotiations will continue. The question is whether they will be effective or not. The last statement was about substantive negotiations. This was what Azerbaijan always demanded. There is something troubling since substantive is a matter of content and territories. There will be negotiations, but I don’t think the sides will reach an agreement. I don’t know if there will be pressure or not. The mandate of the OSCE Minsk Group implies persuading the sides to finally settle the conflict, not impose a settlement. In essence, Armenia doesn’t have a position, and the formula [a solution that will satisfy all sides] is not a position. It is a nice wish. What I don’t understand is when Karabakh says its and Armenia’s approaches are the same. Armenia doesn’t have an approach or position, and if there is no clear position, the next proposal will not be in your favor. I view Turkey’s factor as an element for not only the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, but an overall security issue. I get the impression that Turkey’s military exercises and the country’s coarse position have always helped defend Azerbaijan, but there has never been this much willingness. Turkey is trying to counterbalance Russia to a certain extent, and this is my impression. Turkey will be the factor that Russia has to always talk to, reckon with. When Turkey entered Syria, it established its presence, and it is clear that the Syrian issue can’t be resolved without Turkey. Now the Turks are trying to do the same in the South Caucasus. If this happens, Armenia will lose, and it has to do something to go against this. However, Armenia isn’t doing anything. I even think that the government doesn’t have an analysis of what I’m saying. Turkey has shown that it is much more independent. Turkey has great ambitions, and it has always had an eye on the South Caucasus. Today, it is taking very practical and daring steps to try to establish its presence,” External link

Now the fact that those funds and circles are shutting an eye on all of these illegal acts, and the one shutting an eye is the West, which would zoom in on every incident and issue statements during the administration of the former authorities, shows that they still haven’t gotten ultimately disappointed, but there are certain indicators that show that the funds and circles are starting to lose patience,” External link

Robert Kocharian added ( about Levon Ter Petrossian ) : "Identifying Karabakh with Armenia is the red line that should not be crossed. It is the instruction where it should be written in red, ‘Don’t do [it]!’ Because the first is not the same. During my presidency in Karabakh, we have always been a partner with Armenia, we have had serious contradictions; [but] we have never made those contradictions a topic of public discussion. But there were issues about the return of Kelbajar, the liberation of Aghdam and other regions. Yes, there were serious contradictions, but we did our job, and then sat down at the negotiating table, tried to find common ground, to reconcile, not to be hostile, but we did not given up our long-term goals just to have good relations. We did not refuse. And, in honor of the authorities of that time, I can say that they, too, were not turning the tension of those relations into an end in themselvesto put pressure on Karabakh to some extent, to deprive of money, to stop the funding, not to send weapons; there was no such thing. Now the danger is in that. We were a partner, now they have subjugated Karabakh; I see a great danger in this. First, we lose the loophole in different approaches in the negotiation process because there were times when [Armenia’s First President Levon] Ter-Petrosyan simply said that, ‘Now the people of Karabakh do not listen to me, what should I do? Go and convince [them]!’ And it was not a theater, it was a natural situation, he could not say anything. You dismiss anyone you want in Karabakh, you appoint whoever you want. You cannot say that the people of Karabakh do not accept this or that approach. Now bringing the status of a subordinate from the status of a partner causes serious damage to the whole process and, by the way, to the security of Karabakh. I generalize a little, but I also do not forget the specific matter. Yes, there have been contradictions. [But] it didn’t happen that I did not communicate with [Artsakh ex-President] Arkadi Ghukasyan for months, but Arkadi Ghukasyan persistently defended, and in general, Karabakh should be much more radical in the negotiation process than Armenia. There were things I did not like, but deep down I was convinced he was doing the right thing, and I was glad he was doing the right thing. At that moment you may not like it a little, but the next day you say, ‘He is doing the right thing.’ Associating is the most dangerous thing," External link

Why am I concerned about the events taking place in Armenia more than those taking place in Russia? It’s because I see that in Russia statehood is a major part of Russian identity, but this isn’t the case in Armenia.

Of course, this is problematic for Armenians. Turkey poses a threat to existence, and we regret to see military drills. Turkey has always had its eye on the South Caucasus.

Robert Kocharian asked : "Given Azerbaijan's position which is voiced today, I simply do not see how a settlement can take place. There is just one fact: The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic has never been part of independent Azerbaijan; that is a fact. The legal basis for the creation of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is flawless; I wrote that declaration. During the secession of the republic, the constitution of the Soviet Union at that time was weak, the autonomy, even the national minorities living in densely populated areas decided their fate through referendums solely in accordance with the working legislation. And the third factor is the fact of the existence of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic for almost thirty years; soon for 30 years, a year later. Moreover, it develops effectively, even more effectively preserves and protects its borders. And today Baku denies the objective reality of these thirty years.
