On September 6, 12 pm the Media Center hosted a Press Conference on the Process of Armenia’s Membership to the Customs Union and its repercussions.
The Press Conference was held by the Founding Director of the Regional Studies Center Richard Giragosian.
Richard Giragosian noted that only Russia benefits from Serzh Sarkisian's decision. And in case Sarkisian made the decision under the Russia's pressure, there is a serious mistake in the Armenian-Russian relations and what happened is the latest and the most serious display of Russia's mistreatment of Armenia. And if, as the president says, no pressure has been exercised, the current situation shows the political weakness of Armenia.
