(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
BAKU, Azerbaijan, February 7. Russia's RTVI
media outlet has spread a 'rating' of Armenian politicians, where
Ruben Vardanyan, a fugitive Russian billionaire of Armenian origin,
who took over separatists in Karabakh, ranks second, just after PM
This 'rating' has been compiled by a certain center for
sociological research called 'Focus'. The organization claims that
the public opinion survey in Armenia was conducted from January 31
to February 4 by phone. Thus, 21.67 percent of respondents are
potentially ready to vote for Pashinyan in the elections to the
National Assembly, and 20.36 percent - ready to vote for
The credibility of this source is questionable, as the
organization does not even have its own website and publishes
so-called 'polls' in a Telegram-channel. Moreover, a small number
of people has participated in the survey, just 840, out of which is
difficult to form an objective opinion.
Several Armenian outlets have immediately published the 'polling
results'. All polls of this organization are immediately
re-published in the Armenian media, and in the vast majority they
broadcast anti-Pashinian and pro-Russian viewpoints.
Also, RTVI has been 'supporting' Vardanyan for a long time
already, publishing his interviews, etc. Vardanyan is known for
bribing all kinds of media outlets to spread his propaganda, and it
is obvious that this channel wasn't an exception.
The far-reaching plans of Vardanyan and his puppeteers to seize
power in Armenia itself have become obvious to everyone. This is a
repeated scheme, similar to when former Armenian presidents Robert
Kocharyan and Serzh Sargsyan (the so-called Karabakh clan) seized
the power in Karabakh only to be later 'moved' to Yerevan.
Vardanyan is realizing that all his plans regarding Karabakh
will not work out, since Azerbaijan has long made it clear to
Armenians and the whole world that there can be no other
'authority' in Karabakh, the so-called 'humanitarian blockade' is
just a fiction, and no one is going to talk with separatists. So,
his is moving on to plan B, actively promoting his 'popularity' and
'credibility' among Armenians. Such a maneuver will allow him to
sweep the failure in Karabakh under the carpet, and also begin to
deal with his main instruction - the seizure of power in
