Kremlin calls events in Armenia domestic affair, says Russia won’t meddle


The opposition rallies in Armenia are a domestic affair and any hypothetic deliberations on possible Russian meddling in this situation are irrelevant, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday, APA reported citing TASS.

 

"This is absolutely Armenia’s domestic affair, this is all I can say," Peskov said when asked if Russia saw a threat of destabilization in the region amid the protests in Armenia.

 

"Why should Moscow interfere?" he said, noting that any hypothetic deliberations are absolutely irrelevant.

 

Peskov declined to say if Yerevan requested consultations with the Kremlin in connection with the events in Armenia.

 

"We are carefully watching what is going on in Armenia. Armenia is our closest ally and we have been developing very close relations with it. Armenia is a member-state of the Eurasian Economic Union and therefore this country is important for us and we are carefully monitoring the events there," he added.
