(Worthy News) - Armenian protesters blocked some routes into the capital, Yerevan, and a road to the airport on Wednesday after Nikol Pashinyan, blocked in parliament from becoming prime minister, announced a nationwide campaign of civil disobedience.
Days of protests in the small ex-Soviet state have created a standoff between Pashinyan’s supporters, who have mobilized thousands of people to take to the streets, and a ruling elite which is determined to hold on to power and still controls the security apparatus.
The ruling Republican Party thwarted Pashinyan’s bid to take over as prime minister on Tuesday. [ Source: Reuters (Read More...) ]
