The Armenian government announced the dismissal of Onik Gasparyan from the post of Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces. The head of the General Staff of Armenia called his resignation illegal and is ready to serve the country in a new status.

In his statement, which he made a few hours after his dismissal, the Chief of the General Staff stressed that the decision of the Prime Minister of Armenia contradicts the Constitution of the country. In his opinion, this indicates the need for the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.

A favorable solution to the current crisis for the Motherland can only be ensured as a result of the resignation of the Prime Minister of the republic and early parliamentary elections.

- Gasparyan thinks.

He also said that he challenged the government's decision in the Administrative Court of Armenia, which will consider his claim.
The Chief of the General Staff appealed to the military with an appeal not to forget about their direct responsibilities to ensure the country's security.

Dear generals, officers and soldiers, the exclusive mission of the Armed Forces is to ensure the security of the Motherland, therefore I urge you to continue your selfless and patriotic service exclusively to the Motherland and the people in the name of the development of the Armed Forces and the strengthening of Armenia and Artsakh.

- said in his address.

Today, Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Andrei Rudenko expressed hope for a speedy settlement of the political crisis in Armenia and that this process will not lead to an escalation of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

          "A favorable solution to the current crisis for the Motherland can be ensured only as a result of the resignation of the prime minister of the republic and early parliamentary elections," Gasparyan said.

          This is an absolutely smart decision! Pashinyan must leave, together with his pro-American team in power.
          Sick people and traitor compradors should not rule the country!

            What's going on ... Pashinyan said that the Iskanders were used and exploded by 10%, that the lumin means they flew, exploded by 10% and the lumin !!! And the fact that "Iskander" NOT used at all - nonsense. Now is some happy time for stupid people and liars. The same is in the comments on VO: a person writes a clever comment, a crowd of achtivists pounces on him with whooping and false accusations, throwing a bunch of minuses and flying on. For what??? And no way! We want! We don't like you! Wonders!

            I do not agree with this interpretation. very similar to "Assad must go," "Maduro must go," "Lukashenka must go." Very much American. And he will not get away from such appeals and slogans. As all those I have listed have not gone away.
            It should sound something like this: "Pashinyan needs to be driven with a nasty broom" (well, or with rags)

      Something anecdote remembered:
      Two friends run up to the train carriage .. And then, in front of the nose, the doors closed and the train set off. One of the other to the end.
      -for what?
      -What is there to do...

        If yes, then - Again on the sleepers, again on the sleepers let's go ... and after - Together it's fun to walk across the open spaces, across the open spaces ... and how are they now TOGETHER ??? will go
        The circus, performed by the whole country, the former Soviet Union, does not want to watch from the definition of ALL ... and there WILL NOT be business there, most likely.

    A sluggish fuss between those who are offended by Pashinyan's gift to Azerbaijan in the form of a part of Karabakh (did not recognize Karabakh as independent, did not provide military assistance, allowed the mass death of Armenians, the destruction of their property during the fighting), and those who support Pashinyan.
    And Pashinyan sits confident in himself, because it is supported by the State Department.
    We would like to dismiss - they would have kicked him out of the country long ago, but there is the United States that protects him. There are also many who believe in European values ​​and the same thing that the Ukrainians wanted on the Maidan, but failed ...

      The funny thing is that there are no legal claims against Pashinyan, if he had violated the RA Laws, the National Assembly would have long ago declared no confidence in the RA Government, on the basis of which It was dispersed by the RA President's Decree ...
      To accuse Pashinyan of something, it is necessary to bring the legislative basis under this, so far not a single kind and trusting forum member has ever referred to the norm of the RA Constitution, which Pashinyan violated ...
      Those who put him in power have tracked this issue, t.s. The embassy in the United States provided Pashinyan with legal security at his post ...
      In addition to rallies, there is nothing, deputies of the Nat. The meetings of the RA are satisfied with everything, neither the Ministry of Defense, nor the General Staff of the RA AF for some reason, in a fit of anger, did not submit their resignations, due to the inaction of the authorities, and the fact that the RA Ministry of Defense is in power suggests that it has no complaints against anyone. .....

        Did you sign? I rejected it several times.

        The difficulty is reportedly in the fact that Pashinyan still enjoys some kind of support in Armenia. He also managed to gather more for a rally for his beloved people than an opposition to a rally "against." On the other hand, this opposition itself also discredited itself a long time ago and does not enjoy much mass support.

            How is it not to be responsible for defense but to appoint the Ministry of Defense and the chief of the general staff? This does not happen. In my opinion, you are such a connoisseur of their constitution.

            It's interesting there. There are also two-thirds of the Pashinyanites .. this is on the one hand. On the other hand, in this situation, for some reason, he bargains with the opposition so that they would not nominate and support other candidates after his resignation to go to early elections ...

              President of the Republic on the proposal of the Prime Minister in cases and in the manner prescribed by law appoints and dismisses the highest command personnel of the armed forces and other troops.

              Connoisseurs of the RA Constitution have already got it, they are too lazy to read and find, how are you going to argue with the Empireists?
              I gave you the link, you can find out who has the right to declare a state of emergency in the country, martial law, declare war, under what conditions Pashinyan becomes the Supreme Commander of the RA Armed Forces ...
              There are also two-thirds of the Pashinyanites .. this is on the one hand.

              I do not know this. I don’t follow the RA elections. It's easier for me to refer to the hole of law.

      This once again confirms the fact that the United States has advanced far ahead in terms of its capabilities and ability to reform countries and peoples, displace and establish governments and presidents, destroy states, and protect allies. Unfortunately, we cannot do this with all our will. True, we can write down to ourselves the defense of the legitimate government in Syria, Venezuela and Belarus. But to replace the objectionable ruler with the one we need is still a little gutsy. There is room for improvement. I would like to see the first such experience in relation to Ukraine.

    The goal there is one, that for some, that for others - to draw the Russian Federation into clowning, well, like in Ukraine, the same goal. Who disagrees - just think for a second, would the usurper Pashinyan leave a person other than his own in the place of the head of the power structure? He is already holding on to snot - he came to the coup, and the only one who can displace him by at least two is the security forces.
    In short, the main thing for the Russian Federation is not to support anyone. For us, they just don't.

    This is the General Staff that organizes the rally against Natig Pashazade, and is regulated directly from the Kremlin. It's not a secret to anybody. Natig Pashazade (service name Nikol Pashinyan) sent the document on his resignation to President Sargsyan for signature, but because he is in the same team with the General Staff and the Kremlin, therefore, he did not put a seal, but the General Staff still flew out of office epic.
    Natig, hold on. They want to overthrow you and appoint their own man from the Kremlin so that this song, which has been destroying both Armenia and its relations with neighbors for years, does not end. They want further closed Armenia, and its enmity with everyone, in order to control you, keeping you in a state of tension, war, blockade, and in a state of economic dependence on the Kremlin. But hold on, don't let them destroy again what we are somehow trying to build.
    The Kremlin will not see the departure of Natig Pashazade, you know, Botox.)

    Today, Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Andrei Rudenko expressed hope for a speedy settlement of the political crisis in Armenia and that this process will not lead to an escalation of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.
    Previously, you had to express, think and work to work. Only a fool, seeing the largest US embassy in the Transcaucasus, could be arrogant and think that the Americans just sent a hundred gardeners to plant flowers at the embassy there. So far, everything shows that the Americans are outplaying us in Armenia, and our bet on Vladimir Vladimirovich's friend Robert Kocharyan is wrong. Well, the population of Armenia hates the clan of Karabakhis stronger than ten Pashinyans, and that's it, they just got caught stealing absolutely.
    In the story of the Chief of the General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces, there is another mistake made by ours and by Kocharyan. Obviously, it was a false start, as a result, a strong piece on the board, played ineptly, was lost. The reasoning is very naive, they say the Armenian army is pro-Russian and by definition will support our pro-Russian forces. Under the previous leader of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, and I will note our connivance, a large number of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Armenia, a member of the CSTO, rode on all kinds of NATO courses and participated, and is participating in many programs, the Armenian peacekeepers under the roof of NATO are now in Afghanistan. There is no need to be naive, all this just does not go away and does not just end like that. Suffice it to recall which unit of the Armenian army openly expressed support for Pashinyan at one time and joined the protesters.
    Armenia is essentially our microscopic copy, when the children and families of most of the current politicians and high-ranking civil servants live in the West, and the dwarf state has the largest embassy in the region of the leading Western country, you need to think very well not only about each of your moves, but by drawing an analogy, draw conclusions and accept measures in your own country. It seems to me that the Armenian general was blown away, the opponents found where to put pressure, got to his tender place, and we are slowly but surely losing the situation and losing another CIS state from our orbit. We are trying to play in Karabakh the old fashioned way, but Pashinyan did not give it up in vain, thus he and the forces behind him deprived us of the leverage over Armenia, and along the way, over Azerbaijan. The majority of the population of Armenia with three million people puts their interests, and the future of their country, above the interests of the 50 thousand population of Karabakh, they do not speak about it directly, but they reason about themselves in this way. Moreover, two leaders of Armenia in a row, natives of Karabakh, Robert Kocharian and Serzh Sargsyan, and their fellow countrymen who held most of the posts in Armenia under them, did everything possible to turn the population against themselves and the population of Karabakh.
    If this continues and we act in the same vein, then in the final we will not only withdraw the peacekeepers from Karabakh in 4 years, but we will also withdraw our troops from Armenia altogether. That is, we will lose not only the Transcaucasia as such, but also control over the corridor from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea, and access to Central Asia. And the United States will gain a foothold in Central Asia even more firmly, waging a struggle both with China and with us.

    And let me remind you that the US exit to Central Asia and their consolidation there creates a threat to our units of the Strategic Missile Forces. Areas of their combat duty are becoming even more vulnerable and accessible to a wider range of weapons of the US Armed Forces. There was a wave in our media and we talked a lot about the plans for the "Global Strike", talked and calmed down .... But the West in general and the Americans in particular are CONSISTENT, and the fact that we discussed this plan on every shop did not cancel it, it every second, every minute, hourly, etc. approaching the reality of performance.

    As you can see, Armenia is not a private issue of the situation in a close, still close and allied country to us, albeit microscopic. The question and problem are much broader, and the consequences of mistakes are much larger and more important.

    To understand "and for whom we are" here is a reference from the vekipedia:

    In the mid-1990s, he studied at the Higher Officer Courses of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. From 1998 to 2001 he studied at the Combined Arms Academy of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. From 2001 to 2005, he was commander of military unit No. 5119, and then was transferred to a similar position in military unit No. 68617. From 2007 to 2008, he was chief of staff, deputy commander of the 4th Army Corps. Graduated from the Military Academy of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in 2008.
