Well the Russian Federation has invaded, occupied and annexed Crimea form Ukraine, the Russian Federation has invaded and occupied two provinces of eastern Ukraine (Luhansk and Donetsk) and the Russian Federation has been instigating aggression by Armenia against Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh, so it is no surprise that these two countries will try to better arm themselves to resist aggression from the Russian federation and its surrogates.
