Armenia: Citizens block Yerevan roads after Pashinyan's failed PM bid

Protesters blocked main roads across the Armenian capital of Yerevan on Wednesday as opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan called for nationwide strikes following parliament’s decision to reject him as Prime Minister. Due to the roadblocks, dozens of people have been left unable to access the city’s airport and railway station, and have been forced to walk hundreds of metres on foot. Reportedly... Еще some employees from the airport have also joined the nationwide strike. In some parts of Yerevan, the protests have turned into celebrations with the people performing traditional dances. Massive protests have engulfed the Armenian capital since April 13, when the ruling party appointed former president Serzh Sargsyan as PM. On April 23, the newly elected Prime Minister Sargsyan left his post, which sparked celebrations from opposition supporters.
