Russia Condemns Armenia's Government for Strained Relations: Zakharova Expresses Concerns

Russia Condemns Armenia's Government for Strained Relations: Zakharova Expresses Concerns

Russia's official representative, Maria Zakharova, voiced strong criticism against the leadership of Armenia, accusing them of deliberately damaging the longstanding alliance between the two countries. Zakharova's comments came in response to the active participation of key Armenian officials in international events that Russia perceives as anti-Russian gestures.

Zakharova specifically pointed to Armen Grigoryan, the Secretary of the Security Council of Armenia, participating in Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s international conference on peace resolution. She also highlighted the visits of Anna Hakobyan, the wife of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, to the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, and a meeting between the Armenian parliament speaker, Alen Simonyan, and the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Ruslan Stefanchuk, in Dublin. Additionally, Zakharova mentioned a meeting between Pashinyan and Stefanchuk in Granada, Spain.

According to Zakharova, these diplomatic engagements are perceived by Russia as provocative actions, aligning Armenia with nations that are openly hostile towards Russia. She lamented the erosion of the once-strong alliance between Russia and Armenia, emphasizing that the current leadership in Yerevan seems determined to undermine the mutually beneficial relationship that was once regarded as essential for Armenia's stability and prosperity.

Zakharova's statement shows the growing tension between Russia and Armenia, raising concerns about the future of their diplomatic ties. Observers are closely watching developments, hoping for a resolution that preserves the historic partnership between the two nations while accommodating Armenia's international engagements.
