David Shakhnazaryan: Parallels between Crimea and Nagorno Karabakh offensive for the latter

Parallels between Crimea and Nagorno Karabakh are offensive for the latter, says David Shakhnazaryan, the Head of the Concord Research Center.

Speaking at the Monday discussions organized by the Armenian Center for Political and International Studies, Shakhanzaryan said what is happening in Crimea now is Russia's attempt to annex part of the territory of a sovereign Ukrainian state and it must not be interpreted in the Armenian media space as a precedent for the self-determined Artsakh.

"The upcoming referendum in Crimea is illegal. Deployment of Russian troops is an unprovoked aggression and we hope that the world community will give an adequate assessment of the Kremlin's actions. Comparing Crimea and Artsakh we automatically compare the Artsakh people's fight for independence with illegal actions of Crimea's marionette parliament," Shakhnazaryan said.

Anush Sedrakyan, Deputy Head of Free Democrats Party, in turn, said that conflicts in the post-Soviet area and in Europe are regulated differently and one model of the conflict management cannot be applied to the other conflicts.
