Armenia must demand explanations from President Putin regarding the sale of Russian arms to Azerbaijan, the leader of Free Democrats Party Khachatur Kokobelyan told ArmInfo on Monday.
"When a Russian commander said that the Collective Security forces might interfere in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the Azeris reacted immediately. As a result, the Russians hurried to explain that it was just a mistake. Our case is much more serious, but our authorities are still silent," Kokobelyan said.
Regarding the ongoing protests against President Putin's visit to Armenia, he said that the protesters have a constitutional right to protest.
"We do not object to partnership but we are against the suzerain-vassal relationship. Today Armenia has become an instrument in Russia's hands. What we want is just equal relations," Kokobelyan said.
