Armenia: US, Russian-backed Regime Change?

Archuk's Blog, which has already asked who exactly woke up the former president, comments on reports that Levon Ter-Petrossian was recently in Moscow. The blogger says that while it's possible the former head of state was there just for a “bowl of of borsh and a shot of Stolichnaya,” it's more likely that the reason for the visit was far more significant and possibly connected to attempts to finally resolve the long-standing conflict with Azerbaijan over the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh.
