ArmInfo. Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly of Armenia, expressed regret that there was no generational change in the opposition after the "velvet revolution".
On June 30, in a conversation with reporters Simonyan commented on the union of the parties of the ARF "Dashnaktsutyun", "Prosperous Armenia" and the <Hayrenik> party (Homeland, Ed. note)". <Their unification reminds me of the actions of the opposition in Armenia over the past 30 years. There were all kinds of associations of various figures and parties, memorandums were signed, then there were quarrels, grievances, and so on in a circle. It's a pity that political forces and people who could use a different strategy in their work and objectively evaluate reality act differently. They see the reality for which they were paid>, -he stressed.
The Deputy Speaker also stated that 90% of the media in Armenia are unprofitable business. <After the revolution, Robert Kocharyan, Mikael Minasyan and a number of other persons entered into a sale and purchase agreement. All this is done with one goal, to promote the political interests of these individuals. These media pay for the latter to create an alternative reality. Subsequently, these politicians politicians were "hoist by their own petard". These politicians read their press, watch their channels and believe that the government's rating is very low, and their rating, on the contrary, is very high. In fact, they are not in the political field of Armenia, their place is in the kitchen, sometimes in the prison cell,> Simonyan concluded.
