Armenia: protest delimitation

Rallies have been held in Armenia for more than a month demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. Protesters accuse him of betraying national interests and making unjustified territorial concessions during the delimitation of the border with Azerbaijan.  Since early May, rallies have moved from the border region of Tavush to Yerevan, with tens of thousands of people gathering at the most numerous, Republic Square. Street actions of disobedience are in some cases accompanied by mass detentions and police violence. So far, the authorities are not going to give up their positions, and the protesters are not strong enough to send Nikol Pashinyan to resign. 

In this piece Ascolta analyzes the current political situation in Armenia, as well as examines possible options for the development of events against the background of further strengthening of protest moods in the country, as well as intensification of foreign policy pressure on the region.
