He said that Serzh Sargsyan is pursuing a colonial and genocidal policy and at such rates the country will soon collapse. Jirayr Sefilyan's list includes former Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan, leader of the Elk faction Nikol Pashinyan, Heritage Party leader Raffi Hovhannisyan, political expert, head of the Modus Vivendi public organization Ara Papyan and others.
