Fighting corruption in Armenia is important because it is also related to reducing Moscow's influence, said outgoing U.S. Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Armenia Lynne Tracy, who has been nominated to head the diplomatic mission in Russia, at the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on November 30.

According to the Armenian service of Voice of America state radio station, Tracy specifically noted that in the last two elections in Armenia, the U.S. actually witnessed that people did not accept the model proposed by Russia, preferring accountability to their own government.

Ambassador Tracy also talked about the United States' investments in Armenia. According to her, whether in development, economy or in the people, have been of "great importance," particularly in relation to the "homegrown" democratic elections in 2018. "The [Armenian] people see what Russia represents and they see how the country is run," said Ambassador Tracy. "We can continue to invest in Armenia [and other former Soviet countries] to act as a hedge against the malign model of what Russia represents."
