Russia's president was snubbed three times by his supposed ally on Thursday when he met with some of his country's closest partners at an international summit.
Vladimir Putin met with leaders from the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), a Russian-dominated alliance of post-Soviet nations.
But the supposedly friendly forum proved hard going for Putin, who was slighted multiple times by the prime minister of Armenia in protest at its ongoing conflict with Azerbaijan.
Nikol Pashinyan used his speech at the start of the summit — held in Yerevan, Armenia's capital — to criticize the effectiveness of the alliance, where Russia is by far the most powerful member.
Pashinyan later refused to sign a draft declaration from the summit
Pashinyan compounded his criticism when the country leaders lined up for a photo, standing conspicuously far from Putin to leave a notable gap between the two leaders.

Thank you very much and God bless you.
I’m sure he really gives a shit.

BI is worthless as a “news” source. If you want the truth of what happened look elsewhere.
I’m sure everyone at the meeting was wary of Russia because Russian promises are like farts: they smell bad at the start and are soon forgotten.
Lukashenko sparks health scare as Putin ally struggles to disembark private jumbo jet
Belarusian dictator Aleksandr Lukashenko struggled down aircraft stairs on landing in Armenia for a summit with Vladimir Putin.
President Trump’s “friends” snubbed him as well.
Trump didn’t give a rat’s a$$ and I don’t believe Putin does either.
Putin is not Trump.
Business Insider is a Leftist Agiprop site. I refuse to read it anymore.
Watch the videos to see Putin snubbed by Armenia. Classic. Especially after Putin threw down his pen after Armenia refused to sign the summit final declaration live on Russian state television.
Those world leader group pics are so gay. G7, G20, this bunch, etc. It is one of the most idiotic modern trends. Sometimes they make them all dress up in local tribal garb.
And they stand there like grinning idiots.
No matter what group it is, the photo always looks lame.
Guys like Truman, Ike, Churchill, etc didn’t do this is such a way.
That’s me! I reek of class!
Happy Thanksgiving, Jon! Hope you have a nice day with your family!
I agree. Those types of photos are always totally gay and a perfect opportunity to make fun of all of them. No self awareness to be found.
I don’t care what group of would leaders it may be. Those group photos, often in the same local clothing, beclowns them all.
Weird modern trend.
You're right. The picture always look goofy. Nothing natural about it.
—”Happy Thanksgiving, Jon! Hope you have a nice day with your family!”
Very nice of you to be so pleasant to it.
Clearly, I would not be so charitable.
It probably lives in an old car parked in a backyard with an extension cord running to the house.
