According to a high-ranking source in Moscow, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s recent speech at the European Parliament has been deemed “irresponsible and provocative.” The source stated that Pashinyan’s remarks, especially concerning Russia and Russian-Armenian relations, are causing concern. Additionally, it was noted that Armenia seems to be emulating Ukraine, particularly the actions of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky.
Pashinyan’s speech, which took place on October 17, included claims that Armenia’s security allies had publicly called for a change in regime in Yerevan amidst the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. However, he did not provide further details or specify which allies were involved.
This comparison between Armenia and Ukraine draws attention to the increasingly strained relationship between Russia and Armenia. The source expressed worry that Armenia is attempting to replicate certain events in Ukraine, a country that has experienced significant political upheaval over the years.
While the specific implications of Pashinyan’s speech remain unclear, it is evident that his comments have sparked concern in Moscow. The source’s statement suggests that Armenia’s actions may be viewed as detrimental to the bilateral relationship between Russia and Armenia.
