Moscow is extremely dissatisfied with the latest public statements of the Armenian leadership, including the statements of the Prime Minister of Armenia in an interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica and the commentary of the Armenian Foreign Ministry from 31 August, regard them as unacceptable in tone and content, with an eye to shifting responsibility for its own miscalculations and mistakes to Russia- said a source in the Foreign Ministry, TASS.
Moscow emphasized, that Russia is not going to leave the South Caucasus, relations with Armenia will continue to be maintained on the basis of equal partnership. But Armenia does not need to become a conductor of Western policy in the Caucasus.
Earlier, in an interview with the Italian press, Pashinyan stated, that Russia allegedly moved away from Armenia, does not fulfill its obligations and does not control the situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, and the bet on Russia in the field of security “was wrong”. Against this background, the Chairman of the European Committee for NATO Enlargement Günter Fehlinger in his account in one of the social networks, banned in Russia, urged Pashinyan to join NATO.
