Since late April, Armenia's opposition parties and their supporters among the public have been staging regular protests in Yerevan to voice their discontent with the prime minister's policies.
Sputnik comes live from Yerevan, Armenia, where several thousand anti-government protesters have gathered outside the City Hall for another rally.
Armenian opposition parties insist that the country's prime minister Nikol Pashinyan has given up the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh to Azerbaijan under international pressure and started the normalisation process with Turkey. The protesters also demand Pashinyan's resignation.
The Prime Minister, for his part, has repeatedly urged his opponents to lower their expectations concerning the sensitive issue of Nagorno-Karabakh, adding that it was his predecessor, Serzh Sargsyan, who signed the Madrid Principles proposed by the OSCE Minsk group in 2010.
