Pashinyan must resign, as what currently happens in the country is a disaster, which will, from day to day, bring to more severe consequences, said former director of Armenia’s National Security Service Artur Vanetsyan, according to local media.

“Our homeland, our state is in a terrible situation. We must be able to heal the political field with new ideas. The problem of this authority is that they do not accept any criticism. When someone says anything, they immediately reply that this person is implementing an order,” he said.

Vanetsyan also stressed that the authorities point to the 43 billion returned to the state budget: “It happened in my time. Nothing was returned after my dismissal.”

Vanetsyan served as Deputy Chief of the Yerevan Office of the National Security Service in 2016-2018, and Director of Armenia’s National Security Service from May 2018 to September 2019.
