ArmInfo.Russian Ambassador to Armenia Sergey Kopyrkin is convinced that issues related to the personality of Garegin Nzhdeh are related to the common history of the Republic of Armenia and the Russian Federation, to the history of the Second World War.
So, on November 22, in a conversation with reporters in Yerevan to clarify to journalists why the issue with Nzhdeh had become so urgent, it was also raised at a meeting of Russian journalists with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Kopyrkin, in particular, said: "These issues are relevant to of our common history - Armenia and Russia, to the history of World War II. These issues are quite delicate. We see that in the political and international context, attempts are being made to rewrite history, to re-qualify what was happening then. I think that in this context these issues are quite delicate. "
To recall, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan the other day at a meeting with Russian journalists, answering a question about Garegin Nzhdeh, in particular, noted: "In our relations with Russia, I have never come across this question, I have never dealt with this question, never in our relations and in our conversations, negotiations, I have never heard about this from our Russian colleagues, to be honest, I thought that this issue was on the agenda of our relations with Azerbaijan, because for the first time I'm with this issue collided and unexpected but this happened in Ashgabat, within the framework of the CIS summit, and for me, to be honest, it's a surprise that this issue is also present in our relations with Russia. At least no one ever spoke during the course of our conversation with our Russian colleagues Garegin Nzhdeh at all I didn't touch it. As for Garegin Nzhdeh's person, of course, I talked a lot about this in Ashgabat. You say: let's create a commission. You know, it would be strange if we created a commission with Russia to study our own history, " said the prime minister.
