Pashinyan: Under the previous authorities, some did not hesitate to  take kickbacks even when organizing events of national importance

ArmInfo. This year, organizing the events attached to April 24th, we were able to contrast our perception of national values with the previous "kickback"  perception.

On April 27, Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia  Nikol Pashinyan stated this live on Facebook, summing up the events  on the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Armenian Genocide.   The Prime Minister noted that the measures taken clearly demonstrate  the statement made earlier by the Government that the crisis in  connection with the coronavirus can be considered as new   opportunities.  Having closed the entrance to the Tsitsernakaberd  Memorial Complex due to the epidemiological situation in the country,  this year the government was forced to search for new solutions for  organizing a memorable day. As a result, as Pashinyan noted, the  events held this year were able to more clearly and powerfully convey  the message of the Armenian people to the world and, thus, managed to  rise to a whole new level in this matter. 

the Prime Minister emphasized. Pashinyan noted that the  previous regimes over the past 25 years have sown national hostility  and robbery under the flag of national slogans, considering  humiliation, theft of millions and money laundering to be legitimate.  Pashinyan admitted that although the events held this year on April  24 were not 100% perfect, meanwhile, their components will be used in  subsequent years, when, in the case of a successful fight against  coronavirus, citizens will again be able to physically participate in  mourning processions in memory of the events of 1915. According to  him, to abandon the ideas successfully applied this year would mean  lowering the bar.  The Prime Minister also expressed gratitude to all  those who took an active part in organizing events on the Day of  Remembrance of the Victims of the Armenian Genocide.

To recall, this year, as part of commemorative events, on April 23 at  9:00pm  the city's external lighting was turned off, and citizens, in  a sign of sorrow, lit candles and lanterns at their windows to the  sound of church bells. On April 24, a virtual procession took place  in Tsitsernakaberd, during which the names of citizens who sent their  names to specially assigned phone numbers were displayed on the walls  of the Memorial. In total, over 850 thousand messages were received  from Armenia and various countries of the world. The hours-long  virtual procession was accompanied by a concert program with the  participation of famous artists and musicians. On behalf of the  Armenian people, on the 105th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide,  105 thousand flowers were laid to the Memorial by the RA Government.
