YEREVAN. – Activists from the Communist Party of Armenia (CPA) on Tuesday held a public assembly outside the Russian embassy, in capital city Yerevan.
The rally was in support of maintaining the 102nd Russian Military Base in Gyumri, the Armenian News-NEWS.am correspondent reported from the scene.
Also at the gathering, the CPA issued a statement strongly criticizing—in their words—the dissemination of anti-Russian sentiments among the Armenian society.
“Strong and ungrounded accusations are made, addressed to the Number One strategic ally of Armenia,” the statement reads, in particular. “The Communist Party of Armenia calls on Armenian society not to give in to the provocations of political adventurers.”
Members of the Progressive United Communist Party of Armenia also joined this public assembly.
