Armenia has not sent official notifications regarding the freezing of membership in the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told Zvezda television.

"The Armenian side has not taken any official actions in this regard. We are going to contact our [Armenian] colleagues and clarify the meaning of these statements," said Peskov.

He noted that in this case it is very important to know the details.

"Let's hope that our Armenian friends will explain everything to us," added the Kremlin spokesperson.

Earlier, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said—in an interview to France 24 television—that the Collective Security Treaty has not been implemented with respect to Armenia, and therefore Yerevan has frozen its participation in the CSTO.
