ArmInfo. A large-scale campaign to discredit the authorities has begun in Armenia. Deputy Speaker Alen Simonyan stated from the rostrum of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia on April 17.
According to him, the campaign unfolded in connection with the processes that are taking place in the country's parliament. It's about confiscation of illegally acquired property, the return of advertising on Public Television, etc., as well as those criminal cases opened against prominent figures of the former regime. Trying to use the situation, an active campaign is underway on TV channels and websites to discredit the authorities, presenting things that are far from reality.
The Deputy Speaker again appealed to abandon the use of statements taken out of context, using by puppets of Robert Kocharyan, Serzh Sargsyan and Mikael Minasyan of all kinds of fakes. Meanwhile, as the Deputy Speaker noted, the authorities remained the same, being part of the people. ''And all those who stole from the people, committed a crime, will be punished, and let no one doubt: everyone will suffer a deserved punishment", Simonyan said.
