Vartan Oskanian’s case involves interaction of Civilitas Foundation with the American company. It is interesting that the proceedings were launched on 25 May 2012 but made public on June 11. This could be related to Hillary Clinton’s visit and her complement that Serzh Sargsyan is an excellent leader. Besides, the press reported that during the ceremony of awards to civil activists for human rights and freedoms at the U.S. embassy during Ms. Clinton’s visit the leader of PAP Gagik Tsarukyan also visited the U.S. embassy to have a private meeting with her but no meeting took place.
It is interesting that Gagik Tsarukyan participated in this ceremony. It is no less interesting that Vartan Oskanian, the political face of PAP, did not accompany him to the U.S. embassy.
In this context, it is interesting to know who the real “owner” of the core information of the proceedings and why it is made public after the Armenian visit of the U.S. Secretary.
It should be taken into account that between the day of the visit and publication of information tensions on the line of contact escalated. Besides, the publication preceded Russia’s day when Serzh Sargsyan visited the Russian embassy and congratulated Putin and Medvedev. There is a subordination matter and it is strange that the head of state congratulates the prime minister of another state. Perhaps Serzh Sargsyan needs to take increased efforts.
Interestingly, also, Tigran Sargsyan’s appointment became known on the same day of congratulating Medvedev.
