Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
Head of the OSCE Yerevan Office, Ambassador Andrey Sorokin has condemned the assassination attempt on presidential candidate, the leader of National Self-Determination Union Paruyr Hayrikyan.
Sorokin was shocked at the shooting of such an outstanding political figure and condemns such an instance of violence before such a crucial event for Armenia. He hopes that everything will be done to disclose the crime and that this incident will not cast a shadow on the democratic electoral process in Armenia.
The leader of National Self-Determination Union, presidential candidate Paruyr Hayrikyan was shot in the shoulder Wednesday night and taken to hospital. The police are investigating the case.
