Tonight, on November 10, residents of Yerevan, protesting against the cessation of hostilities in the Karabakh conflict zone, broke into the building of the Armenian Government, as follows from the live broadcast from the venue run on the YouTube by the NEWS AM Channel.
Several dozen people tore the plaque off Nikol Pashinyan's personal office and demanded his immediate resignation, calling the Prime Minister a "traitor."
