ArmInfo. Unlike the traditional war, today in Armenia there is no front line, firing points, no enemy isfound, trenches and armor are useless. This is stated in the publication of the first President of the Republic of Armenia Levon Ter-Petrosyan, published on Ilur.
According to the first president, the virus is omnipresent and invisible. "It strikes from the front, side, back and from the air. No one is immune from harm and deprivation, the bitter truth that each of us must remember, without panic and with a high sense of responsibility. The wars are not waged by the masses or opposition political forces, but by the authorities regardless of whether they are good or bad. In mature states, the internal political struggle during the war, according to written and unwritten laws, is frozen, which gives the authorities the opportunity to focus exclusively on control in overcoming the situation, "Levon notes Ter-Petrosyan.
In his opinion, the Armenian authorities, perhaps with some errors and omissions (there is no government that is not infallible), take responsibility for their actions, mainly taking all necessary and possible steps arising from the situation. Judging by the reaction of the public, in general, the activities of medical workers, the police and the Ministry of Emergencies are evaluated positively, but unjustifiably underestimated. But, according to the first president, at a time when the authorities are devoting all their efforts to fighting the virus, a huge army of undervalued geniuses and provocateurs with countless mass media actually opened a second front of the war against them. Under the guise of seemingly useful advice and constructive suggestions, hatred and hostility towards the authorities is sown, which raises serious doubts about the "friendship" of their authors. Most critics of the government are guided not by the support of the latter in overcoming the situation, but, on the contrary, by their intention to prevent, and thereby receive political dividends, which, if this is normal under normal conditions, is tantamount to treason during the war.
"Given all this, I think that the following necessary steps, which do not require much effort, can help defuse the current unnatural and dangerous domestic political situation. 1. To oblige the public by all means to strictly follow the instructions of the commandant of the state of emergency and the Minister of Health. 2. Stop propaganda and actions aimed at sowing distrust and hatred of the authorities, leaving the question of their responsibility for the future 3. Do not publicly give advice and suggestions on events and social issues arising from them, and contact the working groups to study and use them if necessary 4. Freeze the work of the parliamentary commission to investigate the circumstances of the April war, which causes excessive excitement in the already tense situation in the country 5. Form as much as possible faster authorities in Artsakh to put an end to unrest around the elections and provide full control over the situation in the republic. 6. We hope that the second and third presidents of Armenia will instruct the media under their control to immediately stop their fierce struggle with the authorities. At the present critical moment, anyone who interferes with the authorities does not support them and creates additional problems for them, jeopardizing not only the country's security, but also the lives of those close to them. I believe in the common sense of our people and the ability to unite during the test, "the appeal of the first president of Armenia reads.
