Aram Safaryan: 70 % of Armenian population supports current course of  Armenian authorities in  further development of alliance  relations  with Russia 

ArmInfo.Social Organization on Integration and Development together with Eurasian Expert Club had done a survey regarding Russian-Armenian relations  and perspectives of their development.

As Aram Safaryan, the  coordinator of Eurasian Expert Club and Head  of the Organization Integration and Development stated during the  press-conference, during implementation of the survey  the experts  were held on the data of various social surveys, economic analyses,  monitoring of social media, as well as the interview.

As a result of the survey, as Safaryan noted, it became clear that  70% of the population in Armenia support current course of Armenia  authorities in further development of alliance relations with Russia  and the policy led by President of Russia Vladimir Putin. 80% of  Armenian population ties their hopes with the economic development of  the country with Russia. 90% of the population of Armenia  preconditions the economic development with the actions of the  government in face of Prime-Minister of Armenia Karen Karapetyan, who  is considered as a reliable and professional partner in Russia.  In  Safaryan's opinion, corresponding intentions of Armenian public are  based on  the Armenian community of 2 mln people in Russia, high  index of trade migration from Armenia into Russia and intense  economic integration of two countries.

Expert noted also that various contacts with European officials  witness the fact that West has also noticed the intolerance of  Armenian-Russian collaborative partnership, as in current  fundamentals Russia is that very influential center in the region,  which could affect positively on providing safety and economic  development in Armenia. "Collision of interests "of two different  geopolitical centers of influence in Armenia will cause harmful  damage," the expert pointed out.

Based on the results of the carried inquiry Safaryan stated that the  main forces leading the policy of further development of  Armenian-Russian collaboration in Armenia are the ruling Republican  Party of  Armenia, Tsaroukyan bloc with its leader Gagik Tsaroukyan  and Armenian National Congress with its leader, First President of  Armenia Levon Ter-Petrosyan. "By the way, first two political forces  closely collaborate with the Party of Yedinaya Rossia(United Russia).  Taking into consideration the current realities, our analyses show  that the chances to win in the Armenian Parliament have exactly those  forces that lead the developing policy of Armenian-Russian  relations," Safaryan stated.

As for the weapon sales to Azerbaijan by Russia, Safaryan reported  that he understands that Yerevan is worried about it, at the same  time with the signs of arguments with Moscow telling that in case of  refuse of Russia to sale weaponry to Baku, it will be done by any  t  third country. "However, I have to state one thing-in the issue of  Artsakh and Armenia security we have to rely only on our own forces.  And all the attempts to destroy  good relations with the partners  will never lead to good results," the expert summarized.
