Moscow, Russia – After the loss of Nagorno-Karabakh, the Armenian citizens held Russia as well as the Pashinyan government. Responding harshly to criticism of Russia, Sputnik Editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said, “Any Armenian who dares to criticize Russia should go and cut out his dirty tongue. They brought the national traitor to power, who created the prerequisite for war,” he said.
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan agreed with the heads of State of Russia and Azerbaijan and accepted defeat. As the news caused internal confusion in the country, Pashinyan blamed the army and said that the army had withdrawn from the war as a result of briefings.
After receiving news of the defeat, Armenian citizens stormed the government building and demanded Pashinyan’s resignation. One of the criticisms in Armenia was Russia. Russia has reportedly not provided the necessary support.
