“Ruben Vardanyan is a good person. His arrest in Azerbaijan and a term of 14 years in prison based only on the fact that he was a state minister of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is, of course, an outrage. You see, Vardanyan is a billionaire, he doesn’t need anything, but he still went to Armenia to try to solve the problem of Nagorno-Karabakh. He failed in doing so, yes, you can talk about that as much as you like. But he didn’t hesitate for a moment. He didn’t lock himself up with all his money like a scrooge, waiting for other people to sort everything out. He didn’t hide from the problems of his country.”
