Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan’s two separate interviews given on November 26 to Russian Izvestia periodical and Interfax news agency have raised a number of questions and speculations among political circles, where they are viewed as pre-election solicitation of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s support.

The most remarkable part is the timing of the interviews. The more persistent speculations grow over whether Sargsyan might be dismissed, the more actively the executive leader advocates cooperation with Russia and Russia-initiated projects, in particular the Customs and Eurasian Unions.

The interview with Intetrfax is noteworthy for the part where Sargsyan speaks about the strategic partnership between Armenia and Russia, stressing that they are not based on who can gain what.
