ArmInfo.The reports spread by the media about Armenia's alleged appeal to the CSTO to resolve the domestic political situation are lies. Secretary of the Security Council Armen Grigoryan stated this on May 19 during a briefing, referring to reports according to which on May 16 in Moscow the Prime Minister tried to get the support of the CSTO leaders following the example of Kazakhstan to settle the internal political situation in the country.
According to Grigoryan, the dissemination of false information about the head of the RA government has intensified recently at the international level. In this regard, he stressed that the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan relies solely on the will of the people in such matters.
Recalling that opposition protests have been held in Armenia for more than a month, which are controlled by the RA Police, the Secretary of the Security Council expressed the opinion that the opposition movement did not receive public support.
Grigoryan stressed that the government sees the solution of the internal political situation exclusively within the framework of institutional possibilities.
Earlier, on April 17, head of the "I have the honor" opposition parliamentary faction Artur Vanetsyan launched an indefinite rally on Freedom Square in Yerevan in defense of Nagorno-Karabakh and demanding the resignation of the current Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan and his team. He called on everyone to join his protest action. His initiative was supported by the "I have the honor" and "Armenia" opposition factions, as well as the "5165" party. And since May 1, a tent camp of opposition forces has been set up on France Square, demanding the resignation of Pashinyan and his team. Since May 1, activists of the movement have been spending the night on the street, and during the day they carry out actions of disobedience, blocking capital and regional roads. Police use disproportionate force against peaceful protesters while reopening roads and restoring traffic
