Мнение: Приграничный инцидент заставляет армян переосмыслить свои отношения с Россией

"The Azerbaijani military incursion into Armenian territory may have significant geopolitical implications. The muted reaction of the CSTO and Russia triggered another wave of anti-Russian sentiments in Armenia", argues Benyamin Poghosyan in this op-ed.

Мнение: важные решения по будущим отношениям с Азербайджаном должны быть приняты вскоре после формирования нового правительства Армении после выборов 20 июня.

Relations with Azerbaijan will be the key foreign policy issue faced by the new government, regardless of the outcome of the election. It will need to clarify its stance towards the future of the unrecognised Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) Republic (NKR), the demarcation and delimitation of borders with Azerbaijan, and the opening up of regional transport and communication routes in line with the 10 November 2020, and 11 January 2021, trilateral statements of the Armenian, Azerbaijani and Russian leaders. In reality, all three issues are intertwined, and a decision on any of them will impact the fate of others.
