Kremlin hopes Armenia to maintain stability and reach political consensus
The Kremlin is satisfied that the situation in Armenia is not destabilizing and hopes that stability will be preserved and a political consensus will be reached, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"Now we see that the situation is not destabilizing, and we are satisfied," Peskov noted, stressing that the events in Yerevan are a domestic affair of Armenia, which is Russia’s valuable partner.
Peskov expressed hope that order and stability will be preserved in Armenia and "soon in the foreseeable future a political configuration will be shaped that will become a consensus for all forces representing the Armenian people."
The press secretary said drawing parallels between the current events in Armenia and the past developments in Ukraine is inappropriate.
"I would not draw any parallels, because this is a totally different situation, and one can hardly draw direct parallels here," TASS cited him as saying.. According to Peskov, "the situation [in Armenia] is yet to be analyzed, we are keeping a close eye on it."
