Iskandaryan: Robert Kocharyan cannot lead to a strategic revolution  in Russian-Armenian relations

ArmInfo. I do not think that Second President of Armenia, Robert Kocharyan, could lead to any strategic revolution in Russian-Armenian relations. This opinion was  expressed at a press conference by the director of the Caucasus  Institute, Alexander Iskandaryan, commenting on the friendly  relations between Kocharyan and Russian President Vladimir Putin, as  well as the meeting between the Russian President and Kocharyan's  wife during Purin's last visit to Yerevan.

Iskandaryan noted that the Kremlin is able to separate personal  relationships and politics. <In the case of Russia, this is happening  in almost all directions. I don't know the EAEU member countries  whose leaders have good relations with Putin>, he said. According to  him, Russia is not pleased with the way in which RA Prime Minister  Nikol Pashinyan came to power. However, this circumstance does not  prevent both states from sharing personal and strategic relations.

<Of course, various tactical mistakes are made, but I don't think  that Kocharyan's figure could lead to any strategic revolution in  Russian-Armenian relations. The supply of weapons has no any  connection with Kocharyan figure>, said Iskandaryan.

Robert Kocharyan is being accused in the March 1, 2008 case. On May  18, the court of general jurisdiction of Yerevan decided to change  the preventive measure against Robert Kocharyan from arrest to  release on bail. On June 25, the Criminal Court of Appeal decided to  reverse the decision of the trial court. On September 25, the Court  of Cassation rejected the request of Kocharyan's lawyers to annul the  decision of the Court of Appeal.
