Instability prevails in Armenia, and the ongoing developments in this country look like political chaos, Dmitry Savelyev, member of the Russian State Duma, told reporters in Baku on Friday, reports. 

The Russian lawmaker is on a visit to Baku to take part in the 6th International Humanitarian Forum.

“We cannot understand what we should expect from the new Armenian leadership. The ongoing developments in this country look like political chaos. Is it possible to determine political trends in such a situation?” Savelyev said.  

Savelyev noted that acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan appoints pro-Western people to key positions in Armenia.

The Russian lawmaker stressed that Pashinyan’s actions are full of populism.

“The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict should be resolved only by peaceful means. However, we know that Pashinyan’s actions and statements are full of populism, which cause a concern for Russia,” he added.
