ArmInfo.Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan is not the only culprit in the calamity of which we all fell victim. And I don't think it's fair to blame everything on one person today. A similar opinion was expressed to ArmInfo by the Director of "Antares" publishing house, public figure Armen Martirosyan.
This mine, called the unresolved Karabakh issue, according to Maritrosyan, was planted under Pashinyan by the Dashnaktsakans and republicans, personally by ex-presidents Robert Kocharian and Serzh Sargsyan. And, of course, with a strong desire, Pashinyan could not sit on it. Especially well aware of the degree of its explosiveness.
"In my opinion, Nikol Pashinyan still could have avoided the war. At the peak of his own legitimacy and popularity, for example, 10 days after his own victory in the parliamentary elections, he could well have made an appeal to the nation. He could well have disclosed the situation, inform the society on the steps expected from Armenia, substantiating their implementation as the only opportunity to preserve peace. Unfortunately, this was not done, "he said.
In this light, Martirosyan considers it necessary for the Armenian society to realize today the futility of laying another mine under the Armenian leader. Mines that are to be blown up in 20 years. The detonator, the most dangerous part of this mine, he considers an illiterate, rushing from one extreme to another, society. A society that forced Artsrun Hovhannisyan, a representative of the Ministry of Defense, to speak the texts that he spoke during the war.
"The government, no doubt, must look to the future. Work for the future. But I do not think that this future should be created and built only by the authorities. This is far from the case. Each of us should take care of our own children. Each parent is obliged to discuss with the child. his future profession. We must take children to museums, theaters, bookstores. We must sow seeds, which are to sprout in the form of the arrival of a qualitatively better future. We simply have no alternative, "concluded Martirosyan.
