Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said he has no idea what could happen to Armenia if Russia loses the war in Ukraine, Report informs referring to Hraparak newspaper.

On May 11, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan held a meeting of the initiative group of the ruling power. During the meeting, Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan spoke about the talks in Washington with the Azerbaijani foreign minister in early May.

During the meeting, Nikol Pashinyan, in his speech, touched upon the accusations against him that he went to Moscow on May 9 and participated in the events on the occasion of Victory Day, which made him a target for criticism from Ukraine and the West.

Ukraine considered the participation of the leaders of the seven CIS countries in the events in Moscow “immoral and unfriendly.” The newspaper reports that Pashinyan told his associates that he made the right decision, arising from the vital interests of Armenia. He reminded that Armenia receives gas from Russia, which is Yerevan’s strategic partner. Pashinyan also said that his refusal to participate in the parade in Moscow “would be a dangerous gamble.”

Pashinyan told his fellow party members that if Russia loses to Ukraine, “Armenia will face a repetition of the events of a hundred years ago and the loss of independence.”

“Pashinyan also said that Armenia alone will not be able to resist the Turkish-Azerbaijani tandem,” the newspaper reports.

Regarding the erection of the Nemesis monument in Yerevan to the terrorists who killed Azerbaijani and Turkish political figures, the Armenian prime minister stressed that at a time when his government is striving to pursue a policy of reconciliation with Türkiye, the installation of such a monument was inappropriate.
