RSC CITED IN BLOOMBERG ANALYSIS OF REGIONAL BALANCE OF POWER

RSC Director Richard Giragosian commented on the delicate military “balance of power” in the South Caucasus region in an article for Bloomberg News. The article, published on 14 November, was entitled, “Kamikaze Drones, Russian Missiles Jolt Oldest Ex-Soviet Conflict.” Giragosian commented on Armenia’s public display of its Iskander missile system at an Independence Day parade in September, explaining that “Armenia sought to use this display to deter Azerbaijan from a further attack and to demonstrate a solid position in the recently shifting military balance of power.” Giragosian also added that “this missile system is capable of reaching significant infrastructure and vulnerable targets in around Baku and throughout Azerbaijan. This is why the balance of power is now more equal.”
