Armenia’s Ambassador to Kyiv on Ukraine, Armenia & War

Armenia’s embassy in Ukraine was among the last to leave the capital and move to Lviv, near the western border.

Ambassador Vladimir Karapetyan speaks with Institute Director and his former colleague at Armenia’s Foreign Ministry, Salpi Ghazarian, about the complexity of Armenia’s foreign relations and interactions with the diplomatic community in Ukraine; about what the embassy and staff are doing in the midst of war, including protecting church sculptures, and offering aid to refugees; and about the old and large (near 500,000) Armenian community of Ukraine, and their place within Ukrainian society.
