On September 8, 2016, the Hovik Abrahamyan government in Armenia resigned. Former mayor of Yerevan, Karen Karapetyan, who had for the last six years worked in Russia as part of Gazprom’s top management (as First Vice-President of Gazprombank, Deputy Director General for Strategy and Development at Gazrpom Mezhregiongaz, and Deputy Director General for International Projects of Gazrpom Energoholding) will take over the post. Even though Armenia is still a presidential republic, the resignation of the government is fairly significant, especially given the dramatic events of late July. It could be viewed as an attempt to mitigate the public discontent with the authorities, the desire to overcome a possible split within the elites in power, or preparations for the parliamentary elections in April 2017.

The ongoing war in Ukraine and Russia’s March 2014 annexation of Crimea have changed Europe. Increased Russian military activity is also felt in the Baltic Sea area, although the heightened tension there is a political and military corollary to the conflict in Ukraine, not something emanating from the region itself. In this sense, it is a sideshow—even with the proximity to Russia’s northern capital, Saint Petersburg.
