A group of Karabakh war veterans have called on the nation to show civil disobedience and achieve a power change in the country.
In a written statement spread on Wednesday several dozen ex-commanders urged all war veterans to unite “to save Armenia and Armenians and restore justice in all spheres”.
“The lands that we liberated are in danger today. We urge all our compatriots, all parties and individuals to put aside ideological differences and stop our homeland from falling into an abyss,” they said.
For this purpose the “Brotherhood of Liberation Struggle” Council of Commanders urges everyone to join the movement of civil disobedience.
Commander of Karabakh self-defense forces and head of Yerkrapah’s Karabakh structure Arkady Karapetian says this disobedience will mean that people no longer want the authorities to govern the country and it will eventually result in a power change. “If you don’t accept that this person is your president, then you are ready for everything,” Karapetian said.
The Karabakh war veterans say they will consider anyone who attempts to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh problem at the expense of territories as their enemy. “Terrible things will happen if such an attempt is made,” Karapetian warned.
