The Turkish military has begun building a new military base in the area of Mount Ararat, which provides an opportunity for almost complete control of the western part of Armenia and, which is much more problematic, creates the threat of direct attacks on Yerevan.
Given the serious crisis in relations between Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Turkey, the appearance of a Turkish military base just 40-45 kilometers from Yerevan can clearly lead to an aggravation of the situation in the region.
At the moment, it is known that the Turkish military base will be created on a modular basis. It is supposed to place electronic intelligence equipment, radar stations, and artillery equipment here, allowing Turkey to strike at the territory of Armenia and even directly attack Yerevan.
Ankara has not yet made any official clarifications regarding the exact purpose for which a military base is being built near the borders of Armenia, but the latter will definitely pose a threat to Yerevan and also, probably, to the Russian military stationed in Armenia.
Yerevan is the capital and largest city of Armenia. It is located in the central part of the country, in the Ararat plain, and is surrounded by mountains on all sides.
The city has a rich history and culture and is home to many historical and cultural landmarks, including the Erebuni Fortress, the Matenadaran library, and the Armenian Genocide Museum. The city is also known for its vibrant nightlife and delicious cuisine.
