ArmInfo. A large group of participants in the first Karabakh war in front of the building of Defense Ministry of Armenia is holding an action in support of the Chief of the General Staff of the country's armed forces Onik Gasparyan.
Political scientist Arman Saghatelyan, who joined the protesters, told reporters that for the current authorities of Armenia, the coup is much more important than the victory in the first Karabakh war. "These cynics lay flowers at the grave of Vazgen Sargsyan and were silent, when an act of vandalism was committed against the monument to Vazgen Sargsyan in the city of Shushi, in the city they donated To Azerbaijanis, "Saghatelyan said. He added that a rally will be held in front of the RA Defense Ministry building, after which the protesters will march to Baghramyan Avenue, where they will join the activists of the " Motherland Salvation Movement ".
He stressed that the authorities, announcing an attempted military coup, are trying to create panic among the public. According to Saghatelyan, they are demonstratively placing snipers on public buildings, the barrels of which are aimed at civilians, and at the same time, they declare some attempts at a military coup.
Meanwhile, the statement of the General Staff indicates that the General Staff, expressing concern about the evolving situation, appealed to resolve the deep and serious crisis by political and sound methods.
Recall, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Armenia demanded the resignation of Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan, stating that the political leadership is leading the state to a dangerous brink. In response, the prime minister said about a coup attempt and signed a decision to dismiss the chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces Onik Gasparyan. However, President Armen Sarkissian did not sign this document and with objections sent Pashinyan's decree to the prime minister's office. Meanwhile, the head of government resent the document to the president. As a result, he turned to the Constitutional Court.
