Alexander Rahr, a German political scientist, stated that in recent weeks Russia achieved incredible success in South Caucasus.

"It's a brilliant policy," he said and reminded the bases in Abkhazia and South Ossetia; agreements with Armenia; and Medvedev's visit to Azerbaijan proving military and technical cooperation between Moscow and Baku is possible. "Surprisingly, Russia returned to Caucasus", the expert said - Osinform.

"Russia's positions were reinforced in recent weeks, not even months," he said.

In his view, Moscow's achievements were possible due to somehow passive behavior of the USA. Rahr thinks America sits in Georgia and has no aim to restrain Russia. He added Washington uses Tbilisi as a spring ground for a possible attack on Iran.

"They [Americans] are aimed at deterrence of Iran and just turned to the South," the expert suggested.
