Russia threatens to move Gabal radar station to Armenia

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, a Russian radar station has continued to function on Azeri territory, in Gabal.

The Russian government pays rent on the location, but recently the Azeri administration has increased the price. Instead of paying, the Russians are considering moving the station elsewhere, potentially to Armenia. Some analysts believe that this is merely a tactic aimed at lowering Azerbaijan's asking price.
