Supporting territorial integrity is not for Ukraine, it is for Armenia. Gevorg Papoyan, an MP of the ruling majority Civil Contract Faction and Chair of Standing Committee on Financial-Credit and Budgetary Affairs, on Monday told this to reporters in the National Assembly of Armenia—and referring to Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan's statement in Munich that Armenia is not Russia's ally on the issue of Ukraine.

"If we talk about the territorial integrity of the other, it means that you are talking about your territorial integrity. If you question one's territorial integrity, it means that it is very legitimate for the third to question your territorial integrity. This subtlety must be understood. This is not against Russia or in favor of Ukraine, this is for Armenia. At the moment when we do not announce such a thing, it means we are giving legitimacy to other countries, it is clear that countries also to question Armenia's territorial integrity. This could not have other contexts," said Papoyan.
