Ahead of each rally, the Embassy warns its citizens posting a statement on the website, representatives of the embassy told RFE/RL Armenian service.
Such statements were made ahead of each rally but the Armenian press responded only to the last one, they said.
"We remind U. S. citizens that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence without warning. You should avoid the areas of demonstrations if possible, and exercise caution when in the vicinity of any demonstrations. Stay current with media coverage of local events and be aware of your surroundings," the statement said.
