Russia may be on the brink of wars with all the former Soviet republics, as Russia has intentions to annex them, states Russian State Duma deputy Yevgeny Fyodorov, a member of the ruling party "Yedyna Rosiia."

Yevgeny Fyodorov, a deputy in the Russian State Duma from the ruling "Yedyna Rosiia" party, has referred to the potential occupation of all former Soviet republics as a "return to the Russian Federation." He characterized Moscow's expansionist plans not as mere desires but as measures to secure peace.

In this context, the Russian State Duma deputy began contemplating how other countries could resist such aggressive ambitions by the Kremlin, including armed struggle to defend their sovereignty and territorial integrity.

"It is a matter of theory that sooner or later, all former republics will either be in conflict or at war with Russia. Some of them won't be right now, like Belarus. Georgia has already fought, Ukraine. This fully applies to Armenia as well," stated the Russian politician.

He also expressed the belief that the only way to avoid war is through the "joining" of these states to the Russian Federation through "diplomatic means."

Yerevan is drifting away from Moscow

Such statements by a representative of the Russian legislative body have come amid heightened tensions between Armenia and Russia. Relations between the two countries have been deteriorating recently, with several contributing factors.

For example, Armenia agreed to conduct military exercises with the United States on its territory.

Furthermore, the Kremlin has been concerned about Yerevan's decision to ratify the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which issued an arrest warrant for Russian dictator Vladimir Putin over the deportation of Ukrainian children.

Recently, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated in an interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that Russia's large-scale invasion of Ukraine showed that his country could no longer consider Moscow as a guarantor of its security.

This Russian deputy made harsh and offensive remarks about Armenia last fall, referring to it as a "dead-end country geopolitically."
