Armenia: Zvartnots Airport employees go on strike over PM debacle

Workers at Zvartnots International Airport near Yerevan staged a symbolic, hour-long strike on Wednesday following parliament's rejection of opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan as Prime Minister after Serzh Sargsyan's resignation. Tigran Movsisyan, a passenger at the airport, stated: «I haven't seen such joy in 39 years, the people are rejoicing, it is the will of the people. No one bribed anyone... Еще, it is not possible to bribe a million people.» Massive protests have engulfed the Armenian capital of Yerevan since April 13, when the ruling party appointed former president Sargsyan as PM. On April 23, Sargsyan left his post, which sparked celebrations from opposition supporters.
