Now a [political] force has come to Armenia, the Sasna Tsrer, who wants to work with Russia; but with pride, maintaining clear, negotiating, discussing; and Russia will respect.
Political scientist Stepan Grigoryan, who is second on the electoral list of Sasna Tsrer party, on Tuesday noted the aforementioned during their talk with voters in Tsovagyugh village, and within the framework of their campaign rallies for Sunday’s snap parliamentary election in Armenia.
Grigoryan stressed that that although Sasna Tsrer has not yet entered the next parliament, Russia already takes the existence of this political force into consideration.
“Why was it that [Russian President Vladimir] Putin said, ‘let’s move’ the December 6?” he asked, and responded himself. “Since at the CSTO session [on that day], they would have rejected what Armenia wanted [selecting its representative as the next CSTO Secretary General]; that’s not a big secret. Putin thought, “If I reject, [Armenia’s Acting PM] Nikol Pashinyan’s positions will worsen. But Nikol Pashinyan is better for us than the Sasna Tsrer; its position is tougher.’”
Grigoryan added that the Sasna Tsrer party respects the people’s vote, and it aims to oversee ministers and provincial governors that they realize that they are servants of the people.
