Tensions rise between Russia and the United States over Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Armenia

The presence of Nancy Pelosi in Armenia increased tensions between the US government and the Russian government due to the statements he had about the war between the Caucasus country and its neighbor Azerbaijan. Russia has had a military pact with Armenia since 2020 and, although it tried to solve this war situation through mediation, the Putin government did not achieve the positive results they expected.

“We strongly condemn these attacks,” denounced Pelosi, who again stirred up the hornet’s nest of international politics, in the middle of a speech she gave in the city of Yerevan, which generated discontent not only in Azerbaijan, but also in Russia, who had a good relationship with Armenia, but they feel that this situation makes them turn to the side of the Americans.

The conflict zone is Nagorno-Karabakh, located in Azerbaijan but with an ethnic Armenian majority.

The war between the two nations started over a dispute over the unrecognized territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, an area of ​​4,400 square kilometers that legally belongs to Azerbaijan, but is populated by an ethnic Armenian majority. Despite the fact that over the years there were skirmishes, last week the war between the two nations finally broke out, in what meant the largest war conflict between them since 2020.
