RT published this video item, entitled “Armenian opposition sets up for mass rally in bid to force PM out” – below is their description.
The capital of Armenia is once again experiencing protests following Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s controversial sacking of the chief of the armed forces.
The current volatility has been mostly fueled by a dispute over weaponry. The PM claimed that Russian-made Iskander missile systems had failed in the Nagorno-Karabakh war – while the Russian Defence Ministry says Armenia didn’t even use that weapon in the conflict.
RT discusses the latest events with the vice-president of the country’s National Assembly and an Armenian lieutenant general who is a veteran of previous wars in Nagorno-Karabakh.
