Before leaving EEU Armenia should become a respected state – expert

Armenia’s withdrawal from Eurasian Economic Union will be an emotional step, political expert Yervand Bozoyan said speaking to, asked to comment on Khachatur Kokobelyan’s billon starting the process of withdrawal.

“If we decide to close doors in front of Russia we will not win anything. I understand the feeling of our people, our boys were killed by Russian weapons. But we too used it. If they used Russian and we for instance Italian, it would have been another matter. But Russia is ready to sell us weapon at cheaper price. The problem is not in Russia but in us. We must have means for acquiring weaponry,” the expert said.

Bozoyan said that he was against Armenia’s entrance to Eurasian Union but at the same time he understands why Serzh Sargsyan has chosen that direction.

“Armenia should have chosen balanced policy having good relations both with Russia and the West. But official Yerevan favored the West more and Russia forwarded an ultimatum – either we or they. Because of wrong policy of Serzh Sargsyan Armenia has lost Russia’s trust and appeared in such situation,” he said, adding that membership to EEU gives nothing to Armenia but it has been chosen not to appear face-to-face with Azerbaijani-Turkish tandem.

The political analyst said that in case of right and literate policy Armenia can be Russia’s ally without being EEU member, but before thinking about leaving the organization it is necessary to become a respected state.
