Armenia detained more than 90 protesters who demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Defence.az reports citing Interfax.


93 people were detained, 85 in Yerevan, eight in Gyumri.

On Friday, residents of Yerevan again blocked the carriageway of streets in the city centre with their cars. As a result of these actions, traffic jams formed in the city.

The Armenians participating in the actions noted that in this way they express their protest against the trilateral statement on Nagorno-Karabakh signed by the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan. The protesters demand his resignation.

Protest actions demanding the resignation of the prime minister were also held in the second largest city of Armenia, Gyumri. A new opposition rally is scheduled for Saturday.

Earlier, on November 16, Pashinyan called on the military from Karabakh to resolve the issue with the “whining” protesters. Earlier, several videos, recorded by the military in Karabakh, appeared on the Web, in which they urged protesters dissatisfied with the peace agreement to come to the front line, if they wanted, and not talk about the war in Yerevan.

On November 9, Armenia and Azerbaijan, through the mediation of the Russian Federation, agreed to end hostilities. According to the agreement, the military of Armenia and Azerbaijan remained in their already occupied positions. At the same time, Yerevan undertook to transfer control over the Aghdam, Kelbajar and Lachin regions to Baku.

The opposition accused Pashinyan of capitulation and betrayal of the people. Protests broke out in Yerevan on the night of November 10. Activists broke into the parliament building and demanded the resignation of the prime minister.

Pashinyan himself noted that there was no other way out than signing the agreement, since Armenia had already lost the strategically important city of Shushi. The prime minister harshly criticized the protesters, although he himself also came to power through the unrest in Armenia and defending the freedom of expression of the will of the people.

In 2018, Pashinyan became one of the organizers of the actions against the ex-president, who at that time took over as Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan.
