Russian Ambassador to Armenia: Armenia cannot benefit from the ratification of the ICC Rome Statute

Russia believes that Armenia cannot benefit from the ratification of the ICC Rome Statute, thus coming under the jurisdiction of the ICC based in the Netherlands. Russian Ambassador to Armenia Sergey Kopirkin said this in an interview to TASS.

“The Russian position, as it used to be, is that Armenia’s ratification of the Rome Statute, first of all, is not going to benefit Armenia the way that some politicians claim here. That step, in our opinion, does not agree with the friendly nature of our bilateral relations, and as we told the Armenian side, this decision does not encourage the cooperation between Russia and Armenia,” he noted.
