YEREVAN, June 30. /TASS/. Demonstrators protesting against an increase in electricity tariffs in Armenia’s capital Yerevan have refused to unblock the central Marshal Baghramyan Avenue, insisting that their actions are not a violation of the law.
Yerevan police deputy chief, Valery Osipyan, is again in talks with the protesters in an attempt to convince them to disperse or move to the Freedom Square in front of the opera theatre.
The group of around 20 or 30 people at the scene have rejected the police proposal, citing the provisions of the republic’s constitution on the freedom of gathering and meetings.
The Marshal Baghramyan Avenue has been blocked for more than a week, and this creates serious traffic jams in other streets of the Armenian capital. Some demonstrators, who moved to the Freedom Square on Sunday, have announced that they were ending their protest.
