Professor Rouben Azizian is the director of Massey University's Centre for Defence and Security Studies. 

He made headlines in New Zealand as the Soviet Union's acting ambassador in Wellington at the time the Soviet Union dissolved in 1991.

An Evening Post article featured a photo of Professor Azizian next to the new Russian flag replacing the Soviet hammer and sickle flag at the embassy in Karori.
