The Death of the President of Iran will Change the Players in the Region

  • by Western Armenia, May 20, 2024 in Politics

The reasons for the destruction of the helicopter of the Iranian president, who was on his way to Tabriz after the meeting with Aliyev and the opening of a hydroelectric power plant on the lands seized from Armenians in the Araks region in 2020, may never be clarified. Just as it is still not clear what happened in 2010 with the plane in which the military and political elite of Poland flew on the anniversary of the Katyn massacre.

However, it is obvious that the catastrophe of May 19 will lead to transformations in the Middle East, just as the political paradigm of relations between Russia and the West changed in Europe after 2010.

On April 10, 2010, the Polish Tu-154 plane crashed while landing at the Smolensk-Severn airport  96 people died, including Polish President Lech Kaczynski, his wife, prominent Polish politicians and high-ranking military officers. This changed the attitude towards Russia in Europe. In 2012, Vladimir Putin returned to the post of president and the process of "collecting land" immediately began.

During the war in Georgia (2008), Kaczynski accused Russia of aggression and said that the EU and NATO have developed a unique way of talking about Russia, "which does not so much reveal Russia's nature as hides it."

 After Russia's attack on Georgia, Kaczynski considered Russia's future path of military expansion: first Georgia, then Ukraine, then Moldova, then the Baltic states, then Poland.

Only in 2022, the Seym of the Republic of Poland adopted a decision to recognize Russia as a state supporting terrorism and placed the responsibility for the disaster on Russia.

The downing of the Iranian president's helicopter comes as Israel's war in Gaza has reached a stalemate, and even the Israeli military says Prime Minister Netanyahu has no plan for what to do after the destruction of Hamas, other than to annex Palestine. And Erdogan said that Israel will target Anatolia after Gaza. Netanyahu cannot stop.

Israel did not hide that its main enemy is Iran, provoking Tehran to open military operations.

On January 3, 2020, Iranian general Soleimani was killed, and already on January 11, protests were being provoked in Iran.

On Sunday, September 27, 2020, the war began in Artsakh, the first precedent of the forceful "restoration" of dubious territorial integrity took place, with the direct support of Turkey, Russia and Israel. In 2023, on September 19, after a secret meeting of the representatives of the USA, the EU and the Russian Federation in Turkey, with the tacit consent of Iran, an aggression was carried out in Artsakh, which ended on October 5 with the displacement of the indigenous population and the complete occupation of Artsakh.

One week later in 2023 On October 7, after Hamas's actions and Israeli hostage-taking, Netanyahu launched a war against Palestine in an attempt to engage Iran.

On April 1, 2024, Iranian generals were killed as a result of the Israeli Air Force's missile attack on Damascus.

On Sunday, April 14, Iran responded with a "symbolic" drone and missile attack on Israel, as a result of which no one was injured, only the Israeli military base was destroyed, after which the Iranian-American consultations began and the issue of the creation of a Palestinian state became topical.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi was planning to visit Armenia on Sunday, but the visit was postponed at the last minute. Raisi was supposed to participate in the opening of transport corridors in the territory of Armenia. The News does not elaborate on what transport corridor we are talking about.

On the morning of May 19, Raisi visited Arelyan azerbaijan province, met the president of azerbaijan at the border and participated in an event.
