ArmInfo. Recently, accusations have often appeared that the pro- government media and the country's leadership did not tell citizens about what was really happening at the front. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated this during a video message.
He noticed that in reality the situation was different. "Yes, sometimes I didn't say everything to the end, so that the enemies would not use this information for their own purposes, so that they would not feel the advantage. But we reported that there are battles in Hadrut, Shushi, Karintak. We also reported on the achievements of our servicemen, but this is true, we must know about the victories of our soldiers," the prime minister stressed.
Pashinyan noted that the enemy failed to advance in the Northern direction, in Mataghis, from Sotk to Aterk, despite the fact that in the first days of the war there were positional losses, but then the front line was retained.
"Our servicemen performed a real feat. They kept the front line. And in order to save their lives so that they would not be surrounded, I signed a tripartite agreement. The 9th Defense Corps also fought heroically. But the defense was broken, which led to disastrous consequences. And the general, who led the corps and shares responsibility for everything that happened, now gives press conferences and presents sensational "revelations", " the prime minister stressed.
Pashinyan noted that during his leadership in the Ministry of Defense, this general wasted an amount of $ 42,000,000, bought worthless weapons, and a criminal case was opened in the Armenian National Security Service on this fact.
The Prime Minister stressed that his wife, Anna Hakobyan, also became a target of accusation. "You forget to say that part of the population of Stepanakert left their homes. Someone thinks that this city, which is under the bombing, hardly resembles a sanatorium in Baden-Baden. Anna Hakobyan was there so that people would not despair, as there was chaos and regular reports were received that people were leaving their homes. A representative of the Prime Minister's family was there so that there was no panic, and some of the servicemen, who were just spreading panic, were recalled to Armenia. On behalf of the Prime Minister, my wife visited the command post to provide moral assistance to the representatives of the Defense Army. You cannot turn her visit into a command post into an object of political speculation," Pashinyan said.
The head of the Cabinet also assured that during the war, only truthful and reliable information was provided to the citizens of the country.
