YEREVAN.- Results of the May 6 parliamentary elections will not
lead to changes in the format of the Russian-Armenian relations,
said political analyst Alexander Iskandaryan.
Director of the Caucasus Institute Iskandaryan participated in the
space bridge dedicated to relations between the states in the context
of the recent elections in Armenia.
According to the expert, the relations between Armenia and Russia
will remain the same taking into account that all the political
forces entering the parliament are not supporting changes in format
Iskandaryan said the relations are one of key factors enabling Armenia
to survive in this complicated region.
For Russia, Armenia is providing an opportunity to remain a significant
power in the Caucasus, while for Armenia, Russia is a security umbrella
in the context of problems with Turkey and Azerbaijan.
