ArmInfo. A year after the revolution, the situation in the country has not changed significantly, we are still in a transitional period. This was announced at a press conference on October 14 by the head of the analytical center Modus Vivendi Ara Papyan.
He noted that, on the one hand, the legislative and executive powers are now in the hands of the new government, on the other, there have been no radical revolutionary changes in the country. According to Papyan, first, the country's leadership declares that a criminal case will be instituted against a person, and at the same time this process begins in a few months, this person is given the opportunity to prepare, which is wrong. "Recently, representatives of the previous government have become very active. These people have something to lose, because in addition to power this is also an issue business that they have acquired by dishonest work. And these anti-revolutionary forces are strong not only in Armenia, but also in Artsakh," the expert stressed.
According to Papyan, the main mistake of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan was that the revolution took place only in Armenia. "The fact is that Artsakh is also part of Armenia, but there was no revolution there, that is, the" velvet revolution "was incomplete. You can't carry out a revolution in only one part of the country. If in Armenia you call to reject Serzh, then why are you keeping "other Serzhes" in Artsakh. And, despite the fact that Artsakh is an independent state, a power must be formed there that must closely cooperate with the leadership of the Republic of Armenia, because it has always been so," he emphasized.
The expert noted that it was Yerevan that always dictated to Stepanakert how to behave. According to Papyan, this is quite logical, since Armenia has always helped and supported Artsakh in various fields. "However, since the revolution was incomplete, the NKR became an instrument in the hands of foreign political forces, in particular, in the hands of Russia, and they are trying to use Artsakh against Armenia. Unfortunately, the NKR leadership accepted these rules of the game and the situation is heating up. In an extremely tense situation Armenians of Artsakh may have doubts that their security is fully ensured. After that, the search for a new guarantor of security will begin, "the expert said, stressing that the opinion of many people that Russia will be the guarantor of the security of Armenia or NKR is wrong.
"If Moscow, as a result of applying this policy manages to tear Artsakh away from Armenia, they will not guarantee their security. It will be a kind of payment for improving relations with Turkey and Azerbaijan. Since now Moscow activates its relations with Ankara," Papyan noted.
According to the latter, the only way to overcome this crisis is to carry out a revolution in Artsakh. "Moreover, I believe that Artsakh should" de jure "and" de facto "become the region of Armenia, as this is a logical development of the situation," Papyan concluded.
