Leader’s ambition risks turning street protest victory into mob rule in Armenia

After ousting the PM, an Armenian protest leader attempts to ride the momentum, but risks plunging the inherently vulnerable country into chaos with a damaging power grab, observers tell RT.

The reasons for Sargsyan's resignation are objective

Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan’s resignation against the backdrop of large-scale protests in Yerevan is unlikely to lead to any dramatic changes in Russia-Armenia relations, RISS expert Konstantin TASITS said. “The volume, depth and level of allied strategic interaction between Armenia and Russia speak for themselves. We have great ways of interacting in the economic and military-political sphere. A radical revision of these relations may threaten the very existence of the Armenian statehood,” he added.
