Yerevan is now looking for a way to avoid the possible extradition of the Kremlin leader to the court in The Hague, despite the ratification of the Rome Statute.

Armenia listened to Russia’s “concerns” about the possible consequences of ratifying the Rome Statute, on the basis of which the International Criminal Court operates. This was stated by the Vice Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Hakob Arshakyan in an interview with the agency. Armenpress.

According to him, the country’s government decided to agree to the Rome Statute in December 2022 in response to “Azerbaijan’s aggression against the sovereign territories of Armenia,” and that’s when the Armenian Constitutional Court began studying it.

“I mean, the decision of the Constitutional Court is that no one is guilty of anything and does not require measures to arrest anyone. And the government of Armenia in December 2022, of course, cannot predict or predict the possibility and content of specifically the decisions of the International Criminal Court in March,” he said.

The official was quick to assure that “the ruling party and the team have no intention or desire” to arrest Putin should he visit Armenia.

“Recently today, we signed an agreement with another country, according to which the Rome Statute will not affect our bilateral relations. Such an arrangement is also possible in Russia. But this is only one of the options. There are other options,” said the Vice Speaker..

Arshakyan assured that Yerevan and Moscow will be able to “ensure that the provision of the additional process related to the Rome Statute will not harm strategic relations.”

It should be recalled that the Constitutional Court of Armenia recognized the obligations stated in the Rome Statute to the International Criminal Court as consistent with the country’s constitution.

Russia reacted strongly to Armenia’s adoption of the Rome Statute
