Pashinyan comments on the possibility of Putin's arrest in Armenia

Feb 12, 2024

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan commented on the possibility of Russian President Vladimir Putin's arrest in Armenia amid the country's accession to the International Criminal Court.

He said this in an interview with The Telegraph.

Pashinyan evaded answering the question of whether the Armenian police would arrest Putin if he came to the country.


According to him, the decision to join the Rome Statute "serves to increase the level of security in Armenia."

"As for the legal details. I can't make a legal analysis now, because this is the work of lawyers. Let me tell you a secret. After 2018, Armenia underwent major democratic reforms. And I do not decide who to arrest and who not to arrest," the prime minister added.

At the same time, Pashinyan noted that Armenia, as a "responsible state, must remain committed to all its international obligations," including its obligations to Russia.
