Yesterday evening new demonstrations took place in Yerevan, in Armenia, due to the developments in the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh and the capitulation of the authorities of Artsakh (the self-proclaimed republic of Nagorno-Karabakh) in the face of the “anti-terrorism operation” conducted by Azerbaijan in the region.

The protests were concentrated in particular in front of the Russian embassy, ​​in a clear attempt to express the population's anger at the lack of support from Russia, which since 2020 has deployed a military contingent of peacekeeping forces in the region which, however, proved incapable of stopping Baku's progressive actions.

Protesters also called for the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and surrounded government buildings in the city center, clashing with police in riot gear.

In the videos circulating on Telegram channels, among others, we see a man addressing the Russians present in the diplomatic headquarters: “Our children have died because of you. We won't kill yours but we will never forget it! Cursed be you, evil empire!”. The demonstrators shouted "shame".

According to the Russian news agency "Ria Novosti", at least nine people were arrested last night. Protesters chanted slogans against Russia and the Yerevan authorities, urging the resignation of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. People showed up at the protest with flags of the United States, France, Georgia, Greece and the European Union. According to "Ria Novosti", local law enforcement intervened at the demonstration, arresting at least nine people. Protest participants threw stones and bottles at police officers, injuring at least one.
