Sadranq Nikol Pashinyanic

Today, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said he considers it unacceptable two days ago in the village of Panik in Shirak province.

«I consider it a provocation against the Armenian-Russian friendly relations and provocation against the sovereignty of Armenia.»

«I think the perpetrators must be detected and subjected to liability,» the Armenian prime minister said.

It should be reminded that a few days ago a military exercise held by the Russian 102nd Military Base in Panic has caused a great panic in the village. Villagers who were unaware of the exercises were terrified thinking that real military operations were taking place in the village.

The Russian side has apologized for the incident and assured that it will be more consistent from the planning and awareness-raising activities of the Russian military base.
