No progress in the Nagorno-Karabakh peace process should be expected
after Vladimir Putin has been elected Russian president, the political
scientist Stepan Grigoryan told journalists on Thursday.

According to him, Putin’s approach to the problems is more realistic
than that of Dmitri Medvedev. `Putin is well aware that no quick
solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh problem is possible. Given Putin’s
approach to the problem, as well as his global thinking, I should say
that no change or any artificial progress in the Nagorno-Karabakh
problem should be expected in the near future,’ Grigoryan said. The
status quo is sure to remain, he added.
