Lawmaker Zhirinovsky: United Russian-Armenian military group should be under Russian command


The united group of Armenian and Russian Troops should be under the Russian command, the leader of Russia’s Liberal Democratic Party, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, said at a State Duma meeting on Friday, APA’s Moscow correspondent reported on Friday.

 

He noted that the joint command of military bases and joint troops outside Russia is unacceptable: “The joint command should be subordinate to General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces and the Supreme Commander-in-Chief,” said the lawmaker.  

 

According to him, the joint command can lead to unforeseen negative consequences. “Without our knowledge, they will begin some military operations, and we will automatically be dragged into them”, he explained.

 

The Russian State Duma ratified today the agreement on joint group of forces with Armenia signed in Moscow on November 30, 2016.
