Largest protest against Russian policy underway in Armenia
The protest action in front of the Russian Embassy, which took place April 13, is historic, an independent Armenian filmmaker, screenwriter and producer Tigran Khzmalyan said, the website 1in.am reported.
Khzmalyan went on to add that the large protest action against Russia's policy is being held for the first time in Armenia since 1921.
Khzmalyan noted the importance of the fact that the youth were the overwhelming majority of the people who gathered for the protest.
"It was a slap in the face not only for Russia," he said. "The uprising is the language of those who are ignored. This belligerent and perishing generation has made the only correct decision - to put an end to Russian occupation."
Khzmalyan said that the Armenian nation is probably the only one which has been glorifying their executioners for 100 years.
"This patience, this naivety and credulity showed by the Armenian people is unprecedented and absurd, the youth have freed themselves from an illusion, a disease, a virus," Khzmalyan said.
He went on to add that now it's necessary to create a political alternative, a pole, which will represent the interests of these young people and which will head for Europe.
