Opposition of Armenia led citizens to actions of disobedience

Massive actions of disobedience began in Armenia, the opposition calls on the people to take to the streets. The reason for this was the expiration of the ultimatum demanding Nikol Pashinyan's resignation.


As we can see, Pashinyan did not resign. Consequently, from this moment until 17:00 (16:00 Moscow time), the citizens of Armenia have the legitimate right to peaceful actions of civil disobedience.

- declared in opposition.

Ishkhan Saghatelyan, a member of the Dashnaktsutyun party, addressed the people with a televised address, in which he asked the protesters to act within the law, not to succumb to provocations, and the law enforcement agencies to ensure the right of the residents of Armenia to peaceful actions.


Nichol, you will leave anyway. Leave without shocks, at least now take care of our people, state and statehood, do not undermine the internal life of our country. Your departure is vital for our people and state

- he added.

Protest actions began in the capital, as well as in other large cities of Armenia. In Yerevan, protesters blocked the city center, numerous traffic jams formed, and the metro was blocked. Security officials began arresting protesters.


On December 5, 17 opposition parties demanded that Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and his team resign by noon on December 8. If the demands are not met, the opposition threatened to start peaceful actions of disobedience throughout Armenia.

The day before, the head of the church, the Catholicos of All Armenians Garegin II, addressed Pashinyan with a request to resign.

    Unusually, Western countries have not yet even voted for Pashinyan. Apparently they wrote it off as waste material. Did he still not understand this.

          We feed all the countries forever, but the FSA, on the contrary, feed only their illegal junta in the occupied countries, and the people are simply exploited, ripped off like a stick, and they themselves profit from this.

      Serzh Sargsyan said that he did not understand why Lukashenko made public the conversation about the Aliyevs' offer of $ 5 billion in exchange for the regions around Karabakh.
      It would seem that what does Lukashenka care about Armenia now. And he took it, remembered everything that happened in 2016 and voiced it.
      Apparently so that no one in Armenia and in the West doubted that Pashinyan took $ from Aliyev.
      The West has a fallback - the current President of Armenia.

            The question was not at all private
            Or did I misunderstand, and the money was not offered to Armenia, but personally to Sargsyan?
            Nobody stopped him from transferring them to Armenia

              The conversation was not for publicity.
              And it was disclosed only now. For some reason.
              From the conversation ("Aliyev gives you"), one can understand what was offered personally.
              If money were offered to Armenia - why remember it now?

                no one prevented Sargsyan from giving this money to Armenia, this is not an argument.
                And not for razglazheniya, it's politics.

                  First, you need to get that kind of money.
                  To do this, you must fulfill the conditions of the giver and not be left without your head. This is not a gift.
                  Have you ever given that kind of money?
                  Judging by the ease with which you argue, no.
                  Nothing personal. Just a statement of fact.

                    How do you even imagine - 5 billion in a suitcase and even through such an intermediary?
                    So far, I see that if money was offered to Armenia, Sarksyan did a huge foolishness.
                    And if he personally is doubly stupid, he behaved like a dog in the manger, substituting all the Armenians.

                        understandably. if this is so, then he behaved even worse - he did not take money for himself, and he did not solve the problem, although there were all chances

                        So we understood each other about Sargsyan. good
                        And now the next question: did Aliyev offer 5 billion to Pashinyan? I would venture to suggest that yes. wink
                        And if you look at everything that has happened in Armenia and NKR over the past 2 years through this "prism", you get an interesting picture. yes
                        In any case, Pashinyan's lobbied purchase of the Su-30 instead of the TORs looks ambiguous.

                        and what is your assumption based on?
                        Aliyev had a choice - to spend money on armaments or just pay it to Armenia.
                        He has already spent.
                        not to mention the fact that so far there is no evidence that the proposal was personally to Sargsyan
                        Pashinyan's lobbied purchase of the Su-30 instead of the TORs looks ambiguous.

                        there was nothing like this, under the Su-30 there was a targeted loan, this is well known

                        He believes that the sky of Artsakh would be much protected if at one time two additional divisions of the "Tor" air defense missile system were purchased, which was previously planned. But the authorities decided to use this money to buy Su-30 SM fighters, which did not play the necessary role in this conflict. The purchase of "dryers" instead of "Thors" was the biggest mistake, the general said.

                        Pashinyan dismissed this Hakobyan from the post of Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Armenia, he will tell you nothing like that.
                        Let him tell you why he, when he was chief of the General Staff, did not buy these Torahs, the Russian loan was with him.

                        Even the Catholicos of Armenians demanded Pashinyan's resignation. So what?
                        The dismissed general voiced an opinion with which I completely agree. Earlier, when he was at the service, he was silent.
                        Now he said. He's not on duty, is he?
                        I don't see anything strange in his behavior.
                        As it became known to Kommersant, shortly before the change of power in Armenia, the Ministry of Defense of the country postponed the issue of purchasing Russian multifunctional Su-30SM fighters until 2024. The contract, implying the supply of at least one squadron to the Armenian Air Force, was signed in 2012, but never entered into force due to the financial difficulties of the customer. According to Kommersant's information, Russia expects to implement the agreement with the new leadership of Armenia. Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has already sat in the cockpit of the Su-30SM and called the fighter "one of the best in the world."

                        Reread above. They did not buy the Su-30, they did buy the TOPs.
                        Pashinyan sat in the cockpit and bought the planes.

                      Pashinyan was given.
                      Why didn't Hakobyan buy these Torahs in 2016-18, who got in the way?
                      In 2016 Armenia Iskander bought ...
                      And Pashinyan, when he arrived, immediately increased the military budget by half.

What, the Armenians, forgot how you shouted that the Pashinyans were yours, how joyfully they hooted in the backs of the Russians, whom the Pashinyans began to actively expel from Armenia under By any pretext, or without it? You shouted that you will have an economy and a standard of living many times better than the Russian, but here you are closer to the Stone Age than before joining the European Union, or, God forbid, to NATO!

        With the peace wars, the Armenians and the Armenian army have always been remembered since the time of the first Karabakh war. The Armenians blew up the metro in Baku twice (they also blew up civilian planes, helicopters, trains and buses), massacred Azerbaijani women and children in Khojaly, Karadaghly, Aghdaban, Jemilli, Kosaly, Baganis Ayrum. They plundered and destroyed all the occupied Azerbaijani cities to the ground, including: Agdam, Fizuli, Jabrayil, Kubadli. They cut down forests there and in Karabakh itself, in Shusha, for example, in Lachin and Kelbajar.
        During this war, ballistic missiles and Tornadoes (with prohibited cluster fillers) were fired at peaceful quarters (usually late at night) in Ganja, Barda, Tartar and many other peaceful Azerbaijani cities far from the front line. About 100 civilians were killed, including. and small (up to one year old) children. The Armenians tried (firing from the OTRK) to destroy the Mingechaur state district power station and the dam, so that hundreds of thousands and millions of Azerbaijanis died under water, but only thanks to the Azerbaijani air defense system, they failed to do this.

    The US Embassy staff per capita in Armenia is one of the highest in the world. More than 2000 employees. (There are 60 people in the Russian embassy). The occupied area for the buildings is 42 hectares, like the area of ​​the Vatican. In Ukraine in 2013 there were 600, when they completed their task, they were laid off, now there are 80 US employees there. So, if the Americans do not keep Pashinyan in the chair, they will replace him with a backup.

    Pashinyan failed, failed to drag Russia into an armed conflict with Azerbajan.
    I've been thinking about one fact. In recent years, incompetent upstarts have been striving for leaders of different countries. Biden is picking up the same team for himself, the question is, who is the shadow US government? Mikron, Zelensky, Porosenko, Pashinyan ... The list is long. And Madame the kept woman of the European Union is ready to take power in Belarus, or Mrs. Sandu with two passports. Moreover, foreign citizens find themselves in the government of the once developed countries, and this is not only Ukraine. In this regard, the question arises about whether the coronavirus appeared by chance and who is the US sergeant who became the first victim, after which Obama closed the topic, and Trump opened it.

      In recent years, incompetent upstarts have been striving for leaders of different countries.

      It's clear business. According to their philosophy, countries should be headed by weak personalities, without ambitions. A sort of middle managers. Which themselves do not decide anything, and about which no one even knew "a year ago". These are easier to manage. No generals with divisions behind their backs, no Erdogans should rule countries, this is dangerous. "Tikhanovskie" is our everything!
      Can you imagine a person who is not a gynecologist by profession, but a descendant of Bismarck will come to the post of Chancellor.
      Such a person can hit the table with his fist and ask: "Where is the money, Billy ©, where is our money?"

      The porridge is not ready yet, it is only boiling. The IMF will send its advisers, they will tell who will be the next clown, put their signatures. As in Ukraine and Moldova.

    Interesting people, several years ago with the same stubbornness and persistence, rallied, shouted, beat each other's noses and faces - "For Pashinyan!", And now the same thing, "Get rid of Pashinyan!" And when were they right, then, or now? But they do not forget to say and ask "Are you Russia for us or not?"

    I don’t understand it somehow justifies that the Azerbaijanis cut off the head of an Armenian old man? Or do you doubt that the Azerbaijanis would not have carried out ethnic cleansing?

    There were virtually no civilians there. It is simply surprising that no such indignation was heard when the Armenians staged ethnic cleansing against the Azerbaijani civilian population in Karabakh itself and 7 Azerbaijani regions, expelling 1 million Azerbaijanis from there, and some of them were completely destroyed, and in the most brutal way. Where were you all the guardians then?

    The Armenians tried (firing from the OTRK) to destroy the Mingechaur state district power station and the dam, so that hundreds of thousands and millions of Azerbaijanis died under water, but only thanks to the Azerbaijani air defense system, they failed to do this.

    The prize for the most enchanting nonsense in the studio! fellow

    Sargsyan's office confirmed that Aliyev gave 5 billion and agreed to the peacekeepers.
    Sargsyan thus missed an ideal chance for Armenia to solve the Karabakh problem.
    A huge infusion into the Armenian economy - their budget is only 2,5 billion - ensuring the security of Armenians in Karabakh without the slightest expense from Armenia, the opportunity to dramatically reduce military spending and deal with the Armenian economy - the chance was so ideal that it is simply not believed that a person could have done such an amazing stupidity and let it slip that now the Armenians were hit hard - the dead, the economy is in the corral, Karabakh remained with Aliyev on his terms and if in five years they try to recapture it, then it will be necessary to start a full-scale war with Azerbaijan from scratch, on that Armenia, in principle, was incapable, and even more so now.
    And this man wasted everything.

    2018: Pashinyan added that he is ready to become the new head of government, "if the people offer such responsibility."

    It turns out that the whole nation was mistaken in their choice?

    Here is a scandalous, noisy people. For the sake of justice, at the very beginning of the war, N. Pashinyan appealed to the parliament and the people that he can stop the war right now, you just need to return the occupied Azerbaijani regions around Nagorno-Karabakh (NK) of Azerbaijan. And what did these people, who now hanged all the dogs on Pashinyan, answered to his appeal? All were unanimously against the return of the districts around NK, they say, blood was poured over everything Armenian, and now they howl and blame Pashinyan for everything.
    This is what he said at the beginning of the war (he repeated the same thing 10 days later, when much had already become clear).
    "In fact, Armenia was consistently and constantly set a condition to cede at least the security zone, without any preconditions, without any clarification of the status. I want us to clearly record everything, because I know that there will be questions: is it possible Was this situation avoided and what should we have done to avoid this situation? I want the Armenian parliament to fix whether we agree with this decision?
    If we agree, we can stop everything right now. Do we agree? " - Prime Minister Pashinyan asked from the rostrum of the National Assembly, in response to which negative answers were heard from the audience. "

    This is what they answered to Pashinyan: The leader of the Enlightened Armenia faction, Edmon Marutyan, stated that “we must finally resolve this issue with this war”.
    “We must resolve this issue and not leave it to the children,” he said.
