Fyodor Lukyanov: Yerevan`s cooperation with NATO causes nervous  questions in Moscow

ArmInfo.Yerevan's cooperation with NATO causes nervous questions in Moscow, Editor-in-Chief of "Russia in Global Affairs" magazine, political analyst Fyodor  Lukyanov has told ArmInfo. 

"The thing is that Russia keeps taking a negative view of NATO. It is  impossible to change anything, given the decades of NATO-Soviet Union  confrontation. The cold war ended in disappearance of both the  structures and the Soviet Union itself. The same cannot be said about  NATO," Lukyanov says.  

The analyst thinks that despite the rhetoric of the 1990s, NATO  existed and exists to restrain Russia. The Alliance has no new global  tasks or directives, he notes. 

Therefore, he thinks, Russia is quite nervous about Armenia's  cooperation with NATO. Any partners establishing relations with NATO  cause questions in Moscow.    

"Nevertheless, I think such concerns of Russia are excessive. I think  we should take such relations easier, first of all because the matter  does not concern accession of these countries to NATO. At the same  time, Armenia should also realize that NATO is a deep and rather  painful topic for Russia," the analyst says.
