Head of Yerevan’s Strategic and National Research Centre Richard Kirakosian is not happy with the performance of the OSCE Minsk Group, because he says Karabakh is not participating in its work and its negotiations are strictly confidential. According to Kirakosian Armenia is regarded as a weak link in the international community as its Government is seen as being less than legitimate and unpopular as a result of economic and internal crises.

Significantly the expert highlighted that apart from these problems Armenia could receive a serious challenge not from Baku but from Moscow. Kirakosian suggests that Armenia’s ally Russia is getting more and more closely attached to Azerbaijan, so Armenia should be prepared for any kind of developments.
