Publications[edit]

After the presidential elections in 2013, he wrote a highly critical article in the Harvard International Review, where he qualified the Russian-Western geopolitical game over the influence in Armenia as a lose-lose situation, which damages both their long-term strategic interests and the viability of Armenia.[1]
