ArmInfo. One should be responsible for his or her actions instead of blaming others, Maria Zakharova, Russian foreign office spokesperson, told a briefing as she commented on Armenian Premier Nikol Pashinyan's statement that Armenia's dependence on only one center in terms of security was a strategic mistake.
The Prime Minister of Armenia has said a lot in recent days, but in any case it is necessary to be responsible for one's own actions, and not look for the guilty, doing this constantly and on every occasion. "This is the difference between a politician and a statesman and a person passing through and not thinking about the national interests of his country. Otherwise, it's a little like a story about a bad dancer," Zakharova said.
The Russian side, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Defense, and other relevant departments, is in constant contact with all interested partners, taking steps to resolve the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh. In particular, Special Representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Igor Khovaev discussed this issue in detail during his visit to Yerevan last week; these days he is in Baku, where his consultations with Azerbaijani partners are planned.
"We act in line with the trilateral agreements of the leaders of Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia, and advocate unhindered access to the region both along the routes through the Lachin corridor and through Agdam. We urge you to avoid unnecessary politicization of this issue," Zakharova said, adding that, unlike the actions of the Russian side, the EU's actions do not lead to normalization of the situation. Zakharova pointed out the unacceptability of the political rhetoric emerging from Yerevan in attempts to blame Russia, since it hits people who need help. "It is necessary to do everything possible to improve the situation and minimize people's suffering," Zakharova said.
Answering a question about the intentions of the Armenian authorities to send a draft agreement on the Rome Statute to the country's parliament, Zakharova noted that Moscow has already asked Yerevan for clarification on this matter. "We will decide on our next steps based on the content of the Armenian side's response," the Russian diplomat said.
