The global protests that brought people to the streets in Yerevan, "one to one" repeat the beginning of the development of the Ukrainian crisis, when it came to Maidan Kiev with the requirements of the government, experts noted. With all this intense role, in the first, as in the second case, can play the United States, which through its own Embassy asking shambles right tone and did not allow the parties to reach agreement.
The office of Armenia, and yet, there is one grandiose superiority - you can use the sad experience of Ukraine and try to make the events in this scenario. "Armenia is close to the coup using bullet weapons. This will happen if President powers Serzh Sargsyan did not learn a lesson from the Ukrainian Maidan and draw the appropriate conclusions", - quotes RIA Novosti member of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Igor Morozov.
Ukrainian actions are repeated with amazing accuracy. "Then the Ukrainian opposition has also categorically refused to meet with President Viktor Yanukovych and started to complain to the European community, in addition to the protesters began to appear, coming from Europe policy," recalled a member of the Federation Council.
"The American Embassy in Armenia also actively involved in current events in Yerevan. Need for all this to note that dippredstavitelstvo the United States in Armenia is considered one of the largest representations of the United States abroad, the number of employees it is second only to the diplomatic mission of the United States in Iraq, although Armenia is quite small power," allocated Igor Morozov.
Remember, in the evening of 22 June on the streets of Yerevan protesters came out against a sudden increase in electricity tariffs. The congregation went to the presidential Palace but were stopped by the police and staged a sit-down strike.
The protesters have rejected the proposals of the powers of the President Serzh Sargisyan to listen to complaints from their followers. After refusing to end the strike started the crackdown on protesters. The result was detained about 200 people, 11 policemen and 18 protesters were injured. The participants were seized knives, brass knuckles, sticks and rods.
At night, the activists wanted to reassure local deputies. They lined up in a living wall in order not to allow protesters to clash and the police. Nevertheless, people still drove politicians.
