ArmInfo. Spokesman for the Prime Minister of Armenia Vladimir Karapetyan does not understand what is meant by the phrase "personnel pogrom."
So, on December 12 in Yerevan, in an interview with reporters on the sidelines of the Third meeting of the Russian-Armenian Lazarev Club Karapetyan to clarify to journalists whether a "personnel pogrom" is expected after yesterday's statement by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan about resistance to the state apparatus of the revolution, he noted that understands what this wording means. He recalled that, as the prime minister had already stated, 95% of the state apparatus is made up of cadres of the previous authorities. "I don't think that some pogroms are expected, as you say, however, I'm convinced that the prime minister expressed himself quite clearly, and we must be consistent in following his position," Karapetyan noted.
The day before, during a government meeting, the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan stated that the achievements of the Armenian government, recorded in 2019, were won contrary to the state administration system. "All the economic indicators of this year have been implemented contrary to the state administration system. I declare this as the Prime Minister of Armenia. All successes and acquisitions are 100% made contrary to the state administration system," Pashinyan stated.
He cited conversations in the government as an example. "According to them, due to the fact that they do not accept kickbacks, an economic collapse will erupt, because it is better for capital expenditures to somehow" spin "and bring at least some result," the prime minister said.
According to him, the fight against corruption in Armenia also occurs contrary to the system of state administration machinery. "Do not be offended, but the whole law enforcement system needs to ask the question" And when? "From time to time. But there's always a reason: he doesn't give evidence, this one ran away and so on," he said.
The head of government called for fixing that the entire state system is resisting the revolution. "I'll break this resistance. There is no other option, because the people of Armenia voted for me personally and for our political power to make political changes in this country," the prime minister said.
