YEREVAN. – The Armenian President’s announcement on Armenia’s membership in the Customs Union is revolutionary. 

First Secretary Ruben Tovmasyan of the Communist Party of Armenia (CPA) Central Committee noted the aforementioned during a press conference on Wednesday. 

“This is a wise and a brilliant decision toward not solely today, but tomorrow,” Tovmasyan added.

He stressed that the CPA has always supported the creation of the Eurasian union. 

In Tovmasyan’s words, however, nothing is closed before Europe with this decision, and Armenia had never been left without European values even during Soviet times.    

“I am convinced that the majority of the Armenian people are absolutely pro-Russian,” Ruben Tovmasyan concluded.

To note, as a result of the talks that were held on September 3 in Moscow between Armenian and Russian Presidents Serzh Sargsyan and Vladimir Putin, Sargsyan announced that Armenia plans to join the Customs Union and subsequently engage in the formation of the Eurasian Economic Union.
