From observations of publications MEDIA Baku, it becomes clear that from the very beginning of the events in Ukraine, they are the object of discussion in the Azerbaijani information field no less than Ukraine itself. Without exaggeration we can say that almost all of the media in Azerbaijan are special hatred for Russia and its President. Putin. These publications page izobiliût caricatures of Putin and hostile attacks in the Russian Federation. It should be noted that the official media behave more or less carefully. At the same time, many members of the ruling family have voiced their opinion on the so-called "independent and opposition media, and which differ little from the positions of the opposition forces.

"I wouldn't project events in Ukraine in the South Caucasus. But, of course, Russia's actions are totally unacceptable in the eyes of the entire international community, and they will make the conflict Russia's relations with the West and Turkey will increase. And taking into account the fact that our region is adjacent to Russia, anyway this conflict can create tensions. And somehow it will all be projected on the South Caucasus. If unacceptable actions by Russia in Ukraine will not be repulsed, do not exclude, that pressure from Russia to Moldova, Georgia and Azerbaijan may increase. We need to see all the possible risks this situation. " About it in the newspaper, said Rasim Musabekov "echo".

Mp Vahid Ahmadov sure processes in Ukraine from the very beginning there were dictated by Russia. " In his opinion, "this was not only a struggle between democracy and dictatorship, and it was a struggle for power, and the struggle for Ukraine between Russia and the West. With regard to Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova and Belarus, the Ukrainian event «had opened for them the path to European integration ", and" put into archive plans of those forces in Azerbaijan who tried to turn the country into a part of the Russian Empire. This means for all of us, "Karabakh, strong economy, social justice, better life and brighter future."
The leader of the Umid party, Igbal Agazade mp in his statements is showing more aggressiveness towards Russia. He was confident that "Ukraine is actually saved by those States which were retreating before the Russian threat". He odnaznačno said that "against the background of Ukrainian events South Caucasus gained relative calm." In his opinion, "these events mean the end of the Eurasian Union." Because after that "Azerbaijan will not be in the Eurasian Union".

The Party believes that "these developments pose a threat to other post-Soviet countries, vybravŝih the path to integration to the West", that "unacceptable methods of pressure on Russia." "We think the international community, including also Azerbaijan, should not remain indifferent to this process and have to raise their voice of protest. It is also important from the point of view of the direction of the international community's attention to the fact of occupation of the territory of Azerbaijan with support of Russia ".
Mp Zahid Oruj Oficioznyj in his interview to "Yeni Musavat" claims that the Ukrainian events become "headache for Putin".
The head of the Azerbaijani National Center research analyst Natiq Nuri thinks "incorrectly stated that in connection with the conflict between world powers created favourable conditions for action by Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh. Because the United States ' purpose is to dismember Russia in small States "rather than Ukraine. While he was confident that "no State supported Russia." But, even so, "revitalization of Azerbaijan in Karabakh front can turn against us."

Rest assured that, as a result of the confrontation with the West, Russia would split up, and then the Nagorno-Karabakh problem finds its solution. It will take place at the earliest possible time. I personally don't believe in victory of Russia. I just don't see the potential for victory. Vafa guluzade also said haqqin.az that after what happened in the Crimea, hardly anyone would believe Putin.
Pro-Government journalist Akbar Hasanov from haqqin.az and this time scored a special originality in its lunges towards Russia and Putin specifically. In his view, "the low level of militancy of the Ukrainian army has a very simple explanation. The fact of the matter is that asked Russia to send troops to Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych de facto was never the President of Ukraine. He served as a Kremlin stooge. Who was interested in weakening, if not the collapse of the Ukrainian army. Profit was in the pocket of Yanukovych and his Family Russian appointees. And most importantly-the prepared staging area for maximum comfort the invasion of Russian troops in Ukraine. What we are seeing now. "
Appreciating the coup in Ukraine as "oligarhičeskuû revolution", Akber Hasanov States that "these Ukrainian oligarchs now and takes revenge on the Russian side. It is obvious already that Ukraine did not go to the Customs Union, which was quite possible in the Future. Skinuvšie Yanukovich, oligarchs have deprived the Russian side quite expected profits. In addition, it is obvious that Ukraine soon will move toward membership in the European Union. And European integration can have negative economic consequences for Russia. But "Putin puts pressure on those who have deprived and may deprive the huge profits and assets of the Russian oligarchs, who are working on it. Quite possibly, he believes that captured the Crimea will be decent compensation for the loss of Ukraine. If not financially, then at least moral.
Political analyst Rasim Agayev noted in "echo", that "the impact of the events in Ukraine corresponds to the magnitude of what is happening. If Russia would be able to find some political solution with Ukrainians, it is fraught with translation effects on the territory of Russia and, respectively, across a broad front … the case will get to the federalization of Ukraine». However Rasim Agayev noted that while the direct impact of developments in Ukraine, the South Caucasus and Azerbaijan, in particular, no. "Unless in minds." He thinks that "scramble for the Crimea and the threat of it escalating to full Ukrainian-Russian war with the inevitable SAG Nezaležnoj into civil in context seems Károly heaven blessing from Moscow for indulgence towards the separatist Nagorno-Karabakh.
Head of Centre for policy innovation and technology Mubariz Ahmedogly suddenly for Hora governmental "echo" newspaper said that official Baku is worth a little wait before voice position on the recognition or non-recognition of the new Ukrainian authorities.
Sidgi Shevket on haqqin.az evaluates occurring around Ukraine events as "geopolitical poker" and "Crimean adventure of President Putin, who will meet the" more realistic projections that presaged the Kremlin agrees to annexation of the Crimean peninsula, has not dared to go for direct confrontation, not Ukraine, of course, but with the West that would nullify all the achievements of the "fat" previous years ".

This, in his opinion, "comes from the hegemonistic designs of Russia" and demonstrated the "approximation of the Kremlin to absurd aggressive line". Therefore, "all States of the post-Soviet space should worry about this, since this decision the Russian leadership" is a source of tension for the entire region and even the world, and once again demonstrates that the Kremlin believes those States their colonies. But "Turkey and Turkic peoples of the world for the sake of the Crimean Tatars, naturally, will join them, with the result that Russia itself would split up.
Columnist Emil Agayev on haqqin.az claims that "the Russian Tsar Putin zelo oserčal. on Ukraine, and not only on someone there specifically, not on, say, slug Yanukovich or colorless-Evromajdana leaders on the Ukrainian people, who decided to turn away from which promises nothing, no prospects for a better life, Russia toward the prosperous West. Like, what is this for surprises?! Real independence, independence from mother Russia, wanted to? Shish! … Russia provokes in the post-Soviet space, where it is possible the split. And supposedly defending the Russians essentially harm them. What is happening there now, we are seeing. Indeed-Cannon against the Pushkin.

"Putin was involved in extremely dangerous for him. He can no longer retreat without disastrous impact on their image, so in the coming days he will go for a decisive assault. And if you don't win, then his fate is unenviable. Putin in a bad dream could not assume that his aggression has contributed to that, irrespective of the ethnic origin of the Ukrainians feel people. And now he started the war not with the population and with the citizens feel themselves free, "wrote Monday in the newspaper «Zerkalo».
Political analyst Zardusht Alizade eliminates the likelihood of the outbreak of war in the region. Because "it is not in the interest of Russia, Ukraine and the West."

Their latest actions Russia proved that have sufficient determination to resist Western operations conducted in bypassing its interests, "he thinks. Zardusht Alizade was confident that tensions between Ukraine and Russia will gradually subside. "Apparently, Crimea will be submitted to a special status, with the right to veto international treaties signed by the Central Government. The issue of federalization of Ukraine-issue solved. Ukraine may appear several autonomous regions, for example, in the East and Galicia can also get their status "(haqqin.az).
Political analyst Arif Yunus believes that Crimea will have roughly the same status as those of Tatarstan, he said. He also admitted that Ukraine will soon become a member of NATO and the EU (haqqin.az).
"Sleuthing" on the Internet, oficioznyj propagandist Rauf Mirkadirov "discovered" that "Putin more often associated with the image of Hitler", and "not only ordinary users of the World Wide Web, and with regret in the shower writes that" Putin shatters Russia. " In the room "mirrors" from 4 March Rauf Mirkadirov said "Putin" fiasco and polzuâs′ case, scolding Turkish experts for "self-deception", associated with the fact that they do not advise authorities to aggravate relations with Russia because of the economic interests of Turkey. "In fact, there is nothing to wonder about. Putin entered not as Commander-in-Chief, and as a resident of intelligence, which of necessity had to sacrifice the agent. It turned out to be no better than Yanukovych, whom ibid. announced a political corpse and "con".
Yuri Reichel in the newspaper "Zerkalo" asserts that "the misinformation are engaged in everything from President Putin to reptil′nyh.

The head of the popular front party Ali Kerimli in his Facebook page notes that "we really are witnessing adventures ages or Russia examines reaction of the West." However, the occupation of part of Ukraine will cost Russia dearly. In response to this, in his opinion, the Security Council needs to discuss the situation in Azerbaijan. As far as the Muslim and Turkic population of Russia, their sympathy is on the side of the Crimean Tatar people ", while the" Dagestan and Northern Caucasus increase tendencies to secede from Russia. " He was confident that "the likelihood of war in the region will certainly create problems also for Azerbaijan".

The way out of this situation can be an invitation to NATO troops in Azerbaijan. But it is important to know which countries troops can come in Azerbaijan. In this sense, the best could be an invitation to the Turkish troops. Moreover, the so-called "news service" this newspaper is, of course, referring to its reliable sources, the alleged "special plan of the Kremlin on putting its troops in Azerbaijan before the Sochi Olympics, which allegedly had to do another tension reinforcement at the front line.
"Putin" went on the roof? "asks political analyst Zafar Guliyev. He accuses Putin of using the "previous Kremlin experience" disguised intervention ", trying to" recreate the Russian Empire and that he had "Stalin's recommendations" on the flexible form of intervention ", enriching them with a new imperial by Perle-coercion to friendship. That is, at gunpoint Ukraine will be forced to friendship with Russia. " In his opinion, "Putin not only was delusional idea of building a new Russian Empire, not only proceeded to practical intervention steps in this direction, but also himself already sees in the image of the new emperor of all Russia. And it's not just words … Putin has not declared himself emperor, but is already actively undertook the creation of a new Eurasian empire under the diktat of Moscow», which, according to Guliyev, is "neoimperskim March. "Russia, reanimiruâ" ramming "neocolonial policies the Tsarist and Soviet Kremlin, decided (for the second time after the collapse of the Soviet Union) to enter its troops on the territory of a sovereign neighbouring State.

" In his view, the problem in Ukraine is much deeper than it may be at first glance. Her problem is that she osoznaëtsâ the political leadership of Russia as nedogosudarstvo, as a community, which has no national identity. In addition, Ukraine for many Russians, the ancestress of the Russian State. But that's not all, independence is a sonorous slap that Ukrainians publicly otvesili the Russian political elite. That is why Ukraine should not be a successful State, should not be an example … If the West arrives not as Chamberlain with Delad′e in 1938, and it takes a principled position, Russia's economy will collapse in three months.
Besides all this, the opposition forces of Azerbaijan began a propaganda campaign against Professor Rafiq Aliyev, who on the site Vesti.az admitted that "I am ashamed for Azerbaijani youth that scolds in social networks.
