The silent inaction and passivity of the CSTO have become the reason that today a significant part of the Armenian society demands to leave this organization:
▪️ why the decision is/was made to exclude the provision of military assistance to Armenia?
▪️ why there is/was no reaction to the aggression and occupation of the territory of the union state, at least at the level of statements?
▪️ why the sovereign territory of Armenia is called a “disputed territory”?
▪️ why the culprit of the next violation of the ceasefire regime is/was not specifically indicated?
▪️ why Azerbaijan is/was not condemned by CSTO as an aggressor?
▪️ why there is/was no mention of Azerbaijan’s failure to comply with paragraph 1 of the tripartite statement of November 9, 2020, which says: “The Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Armenia stop at their positions”, where were the Azerbaijani units then, where are they now?!
▪️ why nothing is/was being done to drive the aggressor out of the borders of CSTO member state?
▪️ why there is/was no decision to provide at least humanitarian assistance?
