20
Deputy Defense Minister of Armenia, head of the State Military Industrial Committee David Pakhchanyan stated that Armenia, purchasing weapons in Russia, is guided by its own interests and will continue to cooperate, despite the threat of sanctions


Of course, sanctions are a problem, but we are faced with the task of ensuring security, and we will proceed from our interests.
- Pakhchanyan told reporters, adding that relations with Russia are developing quite effectively.

Armenian Defense Ministry: despite the threat of sanctions, we will continue cooperation with Russia


Deliveries on the first defense loan are almost fully completed, and there is an agreement to continue work. This is a serious part of our army supply.
- said the deputy minister.

In 2015 and 2017, two defense loan agreements were signed between Armenia and Russia for a total amount of 300 million dollars. Armenian Defense Minister Vigen Sargsyan reported earlier that Yerevan intends to purchase from Moscow within the framework of a Russian defense loan weapon strategic deterrence.

We remind you that US President Donald Trump 2 August 2017 signed the Law on Countering America's Opponents through Sanctions (CAATSA) against Russia, Iran and North Korea. In the autumn of 2017, the US administration provided a list of individuals and organizations in the defense and intelligence sector of Russia, for "significant" transactions with which sanctions could be imposed. The implementation of this law began on January 29 2018.

        Armenia has no choice. In the neighborhood of Azerbaijan and Turkey - they will be cut simply as a hundred years ago. And besides Russia in the world they won’t give them a hand
        There are no words - they lived as one big family of peoples in the USSR, and because of the Judas of a humpback, Yakovlev, Shevarnadze, an alcoholic (yes, there are numbers) - millions died am

            Nobody especially sponsored it - for example, they threw a handout, took them to supermarkets, and patted him on the shoulder: "Gut, Iffan, gut!"
            So they sold the country for 30 pieces of silver ...
            PS Well, do not forget the ideological, such as Yakovlev, or those caught, such as Raiki on his pants, for which then the humpback and fell apart ...

      there is no need to envy ... in general, I think it happens something like this: Azerbaijan purchases weapons from Russia for real money, and then Russia credits the purchase of weapons from Armenia with this money ... as they say to you, and the money cycle around the Karabakh conflict ...

      Russia has a military base in Armenia and does not pay rent. Envy silently.

    They would have listened less to Turkey and not shouted about the strategy of capturing Yrivan, and you look at Stepanakert, and you would have a broken-off patient. And sho Turks do not give up anything for no reason? It’s necessary to finance the ally of the main adversary, and here you are

    And where would you be without us, dear ones? Already tried one-1/3 of the composition left. Unprofitable. It's time to start rebuilding the Transcaucasian Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic!

    For several centuries of Armenian-Russian friendship, Armenia and Russia have not become true allies. It is a pity. And Armenia could be for Russia as Israel for the USA, And calmness at the southern borders would be ensured. In the meantime, Armenia is a bargaining chip for Russia, to hold the so-called Azerbaijan in its arms. , a state created with the help of Soviet Russia and Turkey.
