Protests leader in Armenia playing role of unique icebreaker as he seriously damages Pashinyan’s reputation

Georgia and Armenia opened their doors to the West, receiving mass protests, clashes and chaos in return, Expert Mehmet Perincek told RIA Novosti. According to him, progress can be seen in the peace talks between Baku and Yerevan. “Of course, the West does not like this; they are trying in every possible way to interfere in these processes so that chaos will reign in the region again,” the expert noted.

Nezavisimaya Gazeta wrote that the people of Armenia feel an existential threat to their country and are trying to find a way out of the current situation. The newspaper writes that rumors circulate that Catholicos of All Armenians Garegin II approved Galstanyan’s actions. The article says that the Church has not been on good terms with the present government for a long time now. Even in late 2020, the two most influential spiritual leaders of the Armenian people called on Pashinyan to resign. The Opposition claims that the government is following the agenda set by Baku and Ankara, and the ruling party is building “clerical conspiracy” theories.

Nezygar (Незыгарь) Telegram channel wrote that every wave of political crisis causes serious damage to Pashinyan’s reputation in Armenian society. Under these conditions, chancing to radicalize the protests is the only way for the Opposition in their attempts to achieve Pashinyan’s resignation. “The current leader of the protests is playing the role of a unique icebreaker and is seriously damaging Pashinyan’s reputation. Each of these political crises makes the possibility of snap parliamentary elections stronger. In this sense, the prospects of Pashinyan maintaining power and the Civil Contract party and its coalition getting the majority of the vote are becoming bleaker and bleaker,” the Telegram channel wrote.
