My name appeared in the recent articles on the Panama offshores in Armenian and foreign presses as well. I regret that my name is seen alongside the family of President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, who has actually embezzled billions of dollars. I consider the fact that my name will become a reason for drawing any parallel between the civilisation of my country and that of dictatorial Azerbaijan as unacceptable, and for this reason I have submitted my resignation today. I will publicly touch upon the offshore articles later as an average citizen, without possessing state levers.
