Analyst: protests in Yerevan there is no anti-Russian component
In the ongoing in Yerevan seventh day of the protests against the increase in electricity prices is not anti-Russian component, said Thursday in an interview Last news Director of the Caucasus Institute Alexander Iskandaryan.

The protest against increase in electricity tariffs began in Yerevan on June 19 and later turned into a March to the office of the President. The law-enforcement officers with the use of special equipment dispersed the protesters. Nearly 240 people, among them journalists, were brought to the servants of police stations, 25 people applied for medical aid. All the detainees have already been released. The action resumed on Tuesday evening. Gathered at Freedom square again organized a March to the President's office on Baghramyan Avenue, but the way they were again blocked by the servants of police cordons. Now the Avenue is blocked. According to the information of Armenian media, in real time, in Baghramian Avenue calm.

explaining the data about the fact that announcing the increase in the cost of electricity Firm "electricity supply networks of Armenia" is the "daughter" Russian organization of inter RAO, Iskandaryan noticed, because It is not It means that the protesters are voicing complaints to Russia.

"Template thinking assumes that time the Russian Company, It means, It's bound to be anti-Russian or anti-Russian component. Absolutely not. I have the ability to predict that individual citizens have the opportunity to say anything that you can find people who will show their emotions. But the background for anti-Russian sentiment, how-ever mass, in Armenia's simply impossible, " - said the expert.

He emphasized on the fact that "the protesters do not stand in front of the office" Electricity networks of Armenia ", they go to the authorities, to the President." Well, as the Armenian authorities will resolve the issue with the Russian company Is already, according to the protesters, "the problems of the Armenian government," said Iskandaryan.

besides, He noted, This is not a political and social protest and the rise in electricity prices forced people to go outside.

"It was totally different (Ukrainian - ed.) "square", "square" was second nature, she was foreign policy. Here the nature of the protest only internal, It is the irritation of the economic situation. The country has experienced economic stagnation since 2008, since the beginning of the fall of the economy is stagnating and development. In this situation, the country is quite long, irritation accumulates against economic blueprint that exists. Needless to say, This particular price increase, But It is rather the occasion than the cause, " he showed specialist.

He also said that Armenia has its own experience of social protests and Armenian political culture involves this kind of influence on the policies from the street.

"in Armenia there is a tradition of street political activity, since 1991 these rallies occur with regular frequency. This culture to achieve anything at rallies in Armenia. A year earlier, the pension reform has turned out to be cancelled, were the shares in Yerevan against increasing gas prices, was stopped by the fare increases in transport. Citizens have the habit that they have the opportunity to take to the streets and in some cases, they have the opportunity to succeed. Have the opportunity, however, and not to achieve, " - said Iskandaryan.
