The scant Western media coverage of events in Armenia has tended to 
fixate on finding some sort of Russia angle. Yet among Armenian 
citizens, regardless of political stripe, Russian regional hegemony is 
widely accepted as an enduring, inevitable, and not entirely undesirable 
state of affairs. It is perhaps for this reason that the perennial 
conspiracies pertaining to “colour revolutions” funded by George Soros 
and “the West” were barely even heard with respect to events in Armenia. 
In this regard, Nikol Pashinyan’s insistence that he is neither 
pro-Russian nor pro-Western, but pro-Armenian, is remarkably consistent 
with views expressed by the Sargsyan regime and its predecessors.
