ArmInfo. The second on the electoral list of "Bloc of Democrats Shirinyan-Babajanyan", the head of the Christian Democratic Party Levon Shirinyan is convinced that the "Hayastan" bloc headed by Robert Kocharian will not be a force component in the political life of Armenia. "Crimea is yours, there are no problems, but Armenia is ours, we will not surrender it," he said on June 16 at a meeting with residents of Spitak in the Lori region of the republic.
Nevertheless, according to him, this point of view does not mean that the members of the bloc are Russophobes. In fact, as Shirinyan pointed out, they are Armenian-centered. "There will be no mafia in Armenia, there will be no robbery - there will be production and economy," he said.
At the same time, Shirinyan does not deny that many Armenian voters are worried about the question of what their relations with Russia will be. These relations are important not only in geostrategic and historical terms, but due to the fact that a large Armenian diaspora lives in the Russian Federation, he noted. "We will have to build a country that will communicate with Russia on an equal footing. We have no problems with Russia, there is a requirement - to interact with us as an equal. The request and proposal of friendly Russia is not to influence the elections through its agent network, "said Levon Shirinyan.
The member of the bloc warned Russian Armenians not to try to influence the elections.
At the same time, Shirinyan welcomed the "return of the United States." At the same time, according to the politician, "the United States needs to return faster, otherwise it can lead to large losses." At the same time, in his opinion, India is also returning to Armenia, and China and France should speed up their investments.
The electoral list of the "Shirinyan-Babajanyan Bloc of Democrats" was headed by the representative of the governing body of the "For the sake of the Republic" party, deputy of the National Assembly Arman Babajanyan. The second number of the bloc is the head of the Christian Democratic Party Levon Shirinyan, the third is the lawyer Seda Safaryan, sister of the head of the Public Chamber Stepan Safaryan.
