Moscow begins to realize that the two phased policy of Armenia has an anti-Russian character and begins to struggle with it, increasing the pressure on Yerevan in all forms, the director of the Center of Political Innovations and Technologies, a political scientist Mubariz Ahmedoglu said press conference on Thursday.
The political scientist pointed out that Russia is beginning to take more and more segments of the economy of Armenia under its influence, the Russian military is much more active in Armenia and Russia is moving away from the position of Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh issue.
"Pro-Armenian, Russian political analysts, along with comments in favor of Armenia in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, noted that Armenia's withdrawal from Russia would be dangerous to Yerevan," he said.
He noted that the results of the so-called "elections" in Nagorno-Karabakh exposed the Karabakh policy of Armenia and the Armenians of the world.
"The figures show that the population is in an entirely different mood," said the analyst.
Ahmedoglu also noted the influence of the Syrian crisis to Armenia. In his view, the situation in Syria creates a political problem to Armenia.
"The Syrian Armenians who fled from fighting in their country and arrived in Armenia, now do not want to stay there. But they need an Armenian visa or Armenian citizenship for emigration to the West," he said.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions./Trend/
