Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that his country was not an ally of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin in his war against Ukraine and never will be.
Armenia continues to withdraw from Russia's influence
Despite this, he claims this does not mean a choice between Russia and the West since the Russian Federation remains a partner for the official Yerevan.
He added that Armenia's partners "may have concerns about relations with the Russians or how relations with them might affect their security agenda."
According to the Armenian Prime Minister, his team is trying to solve this issue by discussing it with partners and allies as transparently as possible.
Armenia helps Ukraine in the war with Russia
On September 7, it became officially known that the wife of the Prime Minister of Armenia, Anna Hakobyan, brought the first aid from Yerevan to Ukraine since the beginning of the war.
The Ministry of Education and Culture said that the first lady of Armenia handed over humanitarian aid for online education — more than 1,000 smartphones, tablets and laptops for schoolchildren.
It is worth noting that Yerevan's decision to help Ukrainians angered the Kremlin. In September 2023, a loud scandal broke out against this background.
