The Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (Istanbul Convention) is the most comprehensive international agreement in terms of preventing violence against women. Armenia signed the Istanbul convention in January 2018. www.coe.int/en/web/istanbul-convention/-/armenia-signs-the-istanbul-convention,

The purposes of the Convention are to protect women against all forms of violence, and prevent, prosecute and eliminate violence against women and domestic violence; to contribute to the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women and promote substantive equality between women and men, including by empowering women.

The text of the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement was signed between Armenia and the EU at the end of last year. The provision of the agreement on the closure of the Nuclear Power Plant states that it is necessary to approve a roadmap or action plan, which intends to substitute the Metsamor NPP with new capacities necessary to ensure Armenia’s energy security and sustainable development. In the meantime, the agreement does not rule out that Armenia can build a new nuclear power plant. On the contrary, under the agreement, the European side undertakes to support nuclear security in Armenia. In other words, in case of construction of a new nuclear power plant, Armenia will enjoy EU assistance in its security issues. sut.am/en/archives/2870,

Britain seeks another anti-Russian provocation

The Douma attack and the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury are parts of the same plot. Evidence is destroyed. OPCW mission was manipulated by the British. And now US BZ nerve agent’s discovery in the Skripal samples.. Who is to say that nothing else was injected – like the agent used to allegedly poison the Skripals?  As evidence is destroyed and the Skripals are “abducted”, Britain seeks another anti-Russian provocation – with warnings of a Russian cyber-attack.


No evidence given. Many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media on the Skripal poisoning and Douma chemical attack https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=sergei+skripal&disinfo_issue=&date=, euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=douma&disinfo_issue=&date=,

On Sunday 4 March Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned in Salisbury with a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia.

Western methods in Syria now like Nazi propaganda in 1939

This [Douma chemical attack] was a provocation, a typical pretext for war. World War II began that way, when SS troops in Poland in 1939 acted as if they took lessons from the British-sponsored White Helmets, which was then used by Nazi propaganda. The fake attack on a German radio station in the town of Gleiwitz in August 1939 became the pretext for the Nazi invasion of Poland at the start of World War II where millions of people got killed. What is the difference between that and the Western methods in Syria now?

The Nazi German attack in Gleiwitz 1939 has nothing to do with the Douma chemical attack. www.telegraph.co.uk/history/world-war-two/6106566/World-War-IIs-first-victim.html, https://www.britannica.com/event/German-Soviet-Nonaggression-Pact,
