Mikhail Alexandrov head of the Caucasus department at Moscow’s
Institute for Commonwealth of Independent States, said he intends to
visit Nagorno Karabakh to meet with the republic’s leadership.
"Russia closely watched the February presidential election in
Armenia. The post-election processes aroused serious concerns. Victory
of opposition forces in Armenia would imply radical shift of political
line: orientation to the West, surrender of Nagorno Karabakh and
collapse of the Russian-Armenian strategic partnership, although
Ter-Petrossian did not publicly announce his plans," the expert said.
The new Armenian leader has strong positions, according to him.
