Expert dismisses radical changes in Armenian-Russian ties after elections

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia-Russian relations won’t undergo any radical shifts following the forthcoming parliamentary elections in Armenia, chairman of the Scientific Society of Caucasian studies experts said.

According to Alexander Krylov, the tensions around the Armenian borders will continue to escalate due to its neighbors: Iran, Turkey and Azerbaijan.

“Armenia needs security guarantees ensured by Russia. Several years ago discussion was held as to if it is possible to find an alternative to Russia. However, “foreign guarantees are not that effective,” the expert said.

Parliamentary elections, due in Armenia on May 6, feature 8 political parties, Republican Party of Armenia (RPA), Prosperous Armenia, ARF Dashnaktsutyun (ARFD), Orinats Yerkir, Heritage, Democratic Party of Armenia (DPA), Communist Party of Armenia and United Armenian party, as well as one election bloc represented by opposition Armenian National Congress (ANC).
