Pashinyan: The incident related to Garegin Nzhdeh is a provocation,  while the name of Griboedov symbolizes Armenia`s adherence to  European civilization

ArmInfo. "As regards the name of Garegin Nzhdeh, there is no such agenda in the Armenian-Russian relations, and today's speculations around the Nzhdeh's name are  provocative and are an attempt by certain forces to drive a wedge  into the Armenian-Russian relations," Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol  Pashinyan said, speaking in parliament.

At the same time, in the context of historical events, Pashinyan also  considered it appropriate to remind that even before his  participation in the Karakilis battle (Armenian-Turkish war of 1918 -  Ed. note) Garegin Nzhdeh participated in the battles during the  Second Balkan War and on the fields of the First World War as officer  of the Russian army and was awarded Russian awards. Pashinyan  expressed satisfaction that publications have already begun to appear  in the Russian press that will put all the dots on .

At the same time, speaking about the incident with the monument to  Griboedov in Yerevan, which was drenched with red paint, Pashinyan  called this case real vandalism. At the same time, Pashinyan, from  the historical point of view, called Griboedov a figure symbolizing  the civilizational choice of Armenia. It was under Griboedov that  Armenia stood between the civilizational choice of which country it  should be, Asian or European one. It was the appeal to the Russian  emperor Peter I by Israel Ori (outstanding figure of the Armenian  liberation movement- Ed. note), who was denied assistance in Prussia  and the Holy Roman Empire (Austria) that predetermined the European  civilization vector of the development of the Armenian people,  Pashinyan emphasized.
