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”
By pardoning Ramil Safarov, an Azeri officer who has killed a sleeping Armenian with an axe, the Azeri authorities have thrown out a challenge to the international community and have shown it their true criminal face, the Union of Armenians of Russia said on Tuesday.
"This has proved once again that the Nagorno-Karabakh people was right when it said that it could no longer be part of Azerbaijan, a country proclaiming a murderer as a national hero," the Union said.
The Union fully supports the Armenian President's decision to suspend Armenia's diplomatic relations with Hungary.
The Union has urged Russia, as Armenia's strategic partner, to make clear its position on the matter and to condemn Azerbaijan's cynical actions, which may undermine the many-year efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group to achieve peace and stability in the South Caucasus.
