Ukrainian Embassy in Armenia: We are well aware what country we work in and what pressure is exerted on Armenia's leadership

At present there are no instructions from the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine to recall the ambassador from Armenia, Igor Roman, Secretary of the Ukrainian Embassy in Armenia, told ArmInfo when commenting on the Ukrainian media reports on possible recalling the Ambassadors from Armenia and Kazakhstan over the official stances of those countries on the Crimea referendum. 

"The Embassy of Ukraine in Armenia is working at full, but in extreme conditions. We are well aware what country we work in and what role it has in the Russia-Ukraine-Armenia triangle. We also realize in what conditions and under what pressure the leadership of Armenia acts," the diplomat said.

At the same time, he thanked the Armenian people for support to Ukraine. "Ordinary citizens of Armenia still visit the Embassy to express their solidarity with the Ukrainian people and leave notes in the Book of Sorrow. No representative of the president's administration, the government or the legislative body has visited the embassy over the latest period to leave notes in the Book of Sorrow," the ambassador said and noted that unlike the representatives of the Russian and Kazakh embassies in Armenia, representatives of all the other foreign diplomatic missions in Armenia have visited the Ukrainian Embassy to express their regret in the Book of Sorrow.

To recall, President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan said in a phone talk with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin overnight that the Crimea referendum was another case of exercise of peoples' right to self- determination via free expression of will.  Afterwards, in Kyev they make calls to recall the ambassador from Armenia.
