An open power struggle between the government and the opposition has broken out in Armenia: The largest opposition party Blooming Armenia gave Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan an ultimatum on Thursday to resign. "We call on Nikol Pashinyan not to lead the country into civil war and to avoid bloodshed," the party said in a statement. "Pashinyan has one last chance to avoid unrest."
The head of government accused his country's armed forces of attempting a coup on Thursday. He regards a statement by the General Staff calling on the government to resign "as an attempted military coup," Pashinyan said on the online service Facebook. He also announced the dismissal of the Chief of Staff Onik Gasparian.
