The political crisis in Armenia due to the loss and presumed treason by the Yerevan government appears to be ramping up.
Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan – who is in hiding somewhere and gives statements over the internet – refuses to resign, together with his entire entourage.
On November 10th, Arguments and scuffles have broken out in Armenia’s parliament as protesters angry at a ceasefire deal with Azerbaijan seized control of its chamber to denounce the country’s leadership.
And citizens, who are attacking Radio Liberty offices, as well as thrashing the office of the Soros Foundation in Yerevan seem to be becoming aware that the pro-Western policy of the government actually cost the country an adequate response in Nagorno-Karabakh.
A defeat such as these could have been avoided, and the results could’ve been less severe than they are.
The Armenian opposition provided two important steps to reclaim Karabakh:
1. “Get rid of the power that ceded Karabakh”
2. “Form a government of national unity”
“This is our plan. From that moment on, the Committee for the Salvation of the Motherland has been operating, to which power in the country is transferred,” said Ishkhan Saghatelyan, a representative of the opposition Dashnaktsutyun party.
Below is an overview of the situation by Re:Artsakh, who are an extremely pro-Armenian government media which covered the conflict:
“We are trying very hard so far to adhere to a relatively non-judgmental position, but damn it, Nikol Pashinyan, as if with a drilling device, is burying himself as a politician, not to mention as a leader, in desperate attempts to justify his own failures. And naturally this is a failure, and we are convinced that it is primarily a political one, which has pulled along a military one.
Essentially, or in the bottom line, as you wish, 4 years of the most exhausting war in the 90s and the next 26 crooked, lame, oblique, but years, we held Artsakh. Yes, of course, we do not diminish the responsibility of all previous leaders of Armenia, responsibility for the result of today should be collective, including all presidents from 91 years old, defense ministers, prime ministers of both republics.
The political prerequisites that led us to the “ala-peace agreement” still require careful analysis, and first, at least to find peace, because in angry emotional outbursts, we cannot find the truth. But more on that later.
Nikol Pashinyan, with his yesterday’s today’s and we believe with subsequent statements, and probably actions, will find a justification for his (or not his, time will tell) decision in signing a “peace agreement”. For example, he does it extremely unsuccessfully, he tries to scatter all the dogs that were launched on him, either blaming Gagik Tsarukyan and his detachment for the indecision, then declaring that “the thugs of parliament, stealing his perfume and watches” would have better smashed the enemy near Shushi , then lamenting the former presidents that they left a difficult legacy (which, of course, it is difficult to disagree with), then referring to the guys recording video messages in defense of Varchapet (by the way, there are also questions about some of these videos, but maybe more about that later) …
We would like to emphasize that whoever and to what extent is not guilty or involved, but it is the leader of the Republic of Armenia, the guarantor of the security of Artsakh, which Nikol Pashinyan has been since 2018, bears full responsibility, including for the internal political situation, which, in the opinion of a considerable part of society, played a fatal role, although in our opinion the primary reason is different.”
Even the most active supporters and promoters of the Armenian course that the government had undertaken, the situation for Nikol Pashinyan and the government is quite precarious, and there is little hope for him to preserve his power, the pro-Western Soros-funded activists and now policy-makers entirely failed the population of Armenia, as well as the population of the self-proclaimed independent republic of Artsakh.
