The Kremlin on Thursday criticised upcoming peacekeeping drills between Armenian and US forces, saying the exercises would harm stability in the volatile region that Moscow sees as its backyard.

“Without a doubt, the conduct of these kinds of exercises does not help to stabilise the situation or strengthen the atmosphere of mutual trust in the region,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov. He added that “Russia continues to fulfil its role as a guarantor of security.”
