Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan says that Armenia leans toward leaving the Collective Security Treaty Organization during a question-and-answer session in the parliament on June 12.

That’s according to Radio Azatutyun.

According to Nikol Pashinyan, at least two countries in CSTO were involved in assisting Azerbaijan in the war against Armenia.

“The culprit is those who formed a bubble alliance, the members of which, it turned out, planned the war against us with Azerbaijan,” he said.

It is suggested that Pashinyan must have alluded to Russia and Belarus, and he had done this before.

Earlier, in May, Armenia decided to shut down the funding for theCSTO activities.

Armenia-Russia relations has deteriorated in the last two years as Russia and the CSTO ignored its requests for help to confront Azerbaijan. The CSTO did not condemn the attack against Armenia in September 2022 and refused to acknowledge that Azerbaijan had occupied Armenian territories.
