Protest leader Pashinyan was voted in by the country's parliament as Armenia's newest leader last week following weeks of peaceful protests against corruption.
We will remind that Nikol Pashinyan on April 17 announced the beginning of the "velvet revolution" in Armenia.
"We also hope to develop our relations in the military-industrial field".
Nikol Pashinyan noted that the Armenian government and people highly appreciated Russia's balanced stance during the domestic political crisis in Armenia.
Russia's resident stated that the trade and economic relations between two states are growing fast, we have recorded a growth by 25%, agricultural supplies from Armenia to Russian Federation are rising, growth of which was 38% last month.

In late March, the Turkish leader also "strongly" condemned Israeli troops' "inhumane attack" on Palestinian demonstrators on the border of the besieged Gaza Strip, a day after the Israeli military killed 16 unarmed Palestinian protesters.
Touching upon economic ties, Vladimir Putin remarked that the trade turnover between the two countries is constantly increasing.
Russian Federation "views Armenia as our closest partner and ally in the region" on both economic and security issues, Putin said.
The President of Iran congratulated Nikol Pashinyan on being elected to the office of RA Prime Minister and wished him every success in this responsible position.
"We will be just as active in the global arena, starting from the United Nations where Armenia and Russian Federation always support each other", he added. Given the increased military tension in the region and Pashinyan's commitment to the territory, expect to see Pashinyan ask for a more exclusive military deal with Moscow, and for this first meeting to set the tone for future Armenian-Russian relations.
"We will discuss [the issue]". I am sure that positive results will be achieved through such discussions. I can assure that Armenia has, so to speak, consensus regarding this issue. "But this does not mean that we are saying that there are no problems", Pashinyan said.
