The incursion of several kilometers by the Azerbaijan army into southern Armenia was done with perfect timing, while the eyes of the world are focused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. France, the US, and Canada are protesting at governmental level, while Russia, even if in the agreement of military cooperation that binds it to Armenia (despite the fact that it exports weapons to Baku), is at first defiladed, but then intervenes quietly – after a few days – with the official intention of finding a mediation.
