Polish analyst Adam Baltzer thinks that the West has lost its chance
to influence developments in the Caucasus region. Baltzer thinks that
it is obvious that Armenia is completely under Russian influence and
therefore any steps in the direction of resolving the Karabakh conflict
depend on Russia. If Moscow considers new relations between Turkey
and Armenia beneficial for itself it will allow such developments,
if not this option will be dead.

Baltzer proposes that there is a possibility that Moscow will oppose
Turkish and Armenian border opening because Ankara will become
Yerevan's chief economic outlet if this happens. He thinks that
Moscow could increase its presence in Azerbaijan and use positive
Armenia-Turkish relations to establish new relations with Ankara
itself.
