Pashinyan Has Finally Secured Army's Chief Of Staff Resignation. But At What Cost?


The Head of the General Staff of Armenia has been relieved of his duties. The President of the Republic of Armenia has twice refused to sign the draft decree on his resignation, after which the head of the General Staff had to leave the post according to the law.

According to Pashinyan’s statement published on the Government’s official website on March 3, the President Sarkissian had not sent documentation pertaining to his rejection of the head of the General Staff Gasparyan’s dismissal to the Constitutional Court, the chief of Staff was therefore automatically “relieved of his post from March 10 by force of law”. The President of Armenia appealed to the Constitutional Court.

Onik Gasparyan called his resignation unconstitutional and promised to continue serving in a different status, according to the portal News.am.

He also noted that he appealed to the Administrative Court of Armenia “in order to ensure the supremacy of the Constitution and law in the Republic of Armenia and the exercise of force solely on the basis of law.”

The Premier’s dispute with top generals began after Pashinyan had declared the ineffectiveness of the Russian Iskander missile systems during the military operations in Nagorno-Karabakh. He later stated that he had been “incorrectly briefed on this matter” and had no doubts about the quality of Russian military equipment. However, his “mistake” did not prevent him from firing the deputy chief of the general staff.

This move started the war between the powers in Armenia that turned into numerous protests demanding the dismissal of the Prime Minister. On the other hand, there were some protests in his support.

The inconsistency of the policy and the methods by which Pashinyan is trying to maintain his position confirm that the Prime Minister is between a rock and a hard place. His actions are likely to lead to another wave of protests in Yerevan, which will once again hit his authority.

What ever Soros pays him – it’s not worth it…


Its somehow ridiculous
that the Armenian people
cannot get rid of that Pashinyan scumbag.
Soros always prevails,
wherever you look.


It is not so much about Soros, but about corrupt nature of human beings who will sell country(or anything else) for a price !
MONEY “always prevails” !
It is about money and privileges…and if the majority of the population doesn’t have leaders to resist to such perversity than it is also opposition that has sold themselves for price.

At this point it must be millions personally to his pocket, I can’t think of anything else, he is as stubborn as hell


Smart guy. Knows where the future of prosperity for country lays, and slowly getting there. Will get out of the shackles of the country that has a tight grip on it right now, and will soon become truly independent and integrate in the regional economy.

Integrate with who? The Genocidal Turks? This is empire games, and Armenia is being used as a pawn.


He is Turk most probably…so…


Small countries are always used as pawns. Gotta make the best of it. There is an Asian saying: “A close neighbor is better than a distant relative”. Partners come and go, neighbors will always be there. Better to get along with them.

Time for Russia to send a spetsnaz team and kidnap him, 99% of Armenia would be thankful, 1% libtards would cry and be exposed

Russia cannot afford to lose the whole of Transcaucasia to pan-Turks, and that’s what’s bound to happen with him in charge, they would be doing it for themselves, and Iran

johnny rotten

It being clear that his mandate was to destroy Armenia, the only question remains whether he knows, so he’s a great actor, or if he’s so stupid that he hasn’t realized it yet.


liberals are in truth the most disgusting autocrats

Nicole will serve Soros until the bitter end… when not much of Armenia will be left. Despite the corruption I cannot imagine him staying for very long because only people who like him are enemies of Armenia.

The Armenians are becoming a joke. Perhaps they should just become part of Turkey again?

Thanks captain hindsight for the history lesson.
They were part of the ottoman empire, how do you think the Turk’s committed genocide on them?

Raptar Driver

So you are telling me that it was never part of the ottoman empire?
Come on dipshit, never go full retard.

Raptar Driver

Most of the Caucuses was owned by the ottoman empire all around the Black sea. At least you admitted you were wrong in A roundabout way.
