It is much easier to answer with a question the query on Nagorno-Karabakh’s status in the Customs Union.
Russian State Duma member, CIS Institute Director Konstantin Zatulin told the aforementioned to Armenian News-NEWS.am.
“Is Karabakh in the single economic space with Armenia? By answering my question you will also answers your question,” he stressed.
In response to the query as to whether Russian border guards may be deployed between Armenia and the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic once Armenia joins the Customs Union, Zatulin noted:
“I personally do not consider this necessary. There have been no border guards between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh to this day, and there is no need for the appearance of such a border. This may cause nothing but tension, conflicts, and various disagreements. Why should we overburden our relations with such phenomena? This will give nothing,” Konstantin Zatulin maintained.
