Armenia without Armenians is what Russia wishes, says expert

With its political presence in our region, Russia is trying all its best to raise barriers to Armenia’s development, according to a regional expert.


“The Armenians have never needed a third power to rely on, and they always had a victory,” Sargis Hatspanyan told reporters on Friday. “We have always managed to solve our problems when left to ourselves, and the solution was always in our favor.”


To the journalists’ remark that Russia is supplying weapons to Armenia today, Hatspanyan responded that the country is carrying out a migration program, by taking Armenians to the remote region of Siberia.


“Russia implements the ‘Armenia without Armenians’ program. Migration in my country has reached such a level that one doesn’t have to even offer a weapon. There has to be someone to use it,” he noted.


Speaking about the Russian plan to impose higher gas tariffs on Armenia, the activist described it as a political decision.


“That’s something to be settled by the authorities, like in all other countries. Everything falls to the people here. Once the people are unable to cover the expenses, the migration problem comes up,” Hatspanyan added.
