ArmInfo. The anti-Russian initiative of Yelk bloc promotes the process of transferring power from President Serzh Sargsyan to Serzh Sargsyan to the Prime Minister. The deputy chairman of the Heritage party Armen Martirosyan expressed such an opinion to ArmInfo, commenting on the initiative of the Yelk faction on Armenia's withdrawal from the Eurasian Union.
At the meeting on October 4, the deputies of the National Assembly of Armenia rejected the initiative of the Yelk bloc to establish a temporary parliamentary commission to discuss the possibility of Armenia withdrawing from the EEU. Vice Speaker Eduard Sharmazanov, in particular, stated that Armenia's membership in the CSTO and the EEU today is on the contrary in the stage of deepening.
"The Armenian national assembly of the VI convocation does not contain pro-Western forces in its essence, the deputies represent in general the pro-Russian forces." In the light of the almost complete submission of the authorities of the republic to Moscow, it is not necessary to expect real results in the form of suspension of Eurasian integration of Armenia from such an initiative prospects in Armenia, at least, it will be necessary to change the power, "the politician is convinced.
In this light, Martirosyan considers "separatist" initiatives Yelk exclusively in the light of internal political processes, according to his estimates, the actual foreign policy agenda of Yerevan is certainly formed not exactly within the walls of the parliament. According to him, the centrifugal initiative Yelk is profitable and proceeds from the interests of the incumbent Armenian president, who intends to become prime minister in the future.
"With such horrors, Sargsyan is once again charging himself to the Moscow patrons, once again stressing how difficult it will be for them to deal with Armenians without him, which the current government is comfortable with, which has been repeatedly demonstrated in the past," Martirosyan said.
