YEREVAN. – It turns out that there were municipalities that organized events for children on June 1; sometimes the impression is that we love our children more than our parents. Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan mentioned this Wednesday during a live broadcast on his Facebook page, regarding the growing number of COVID-19 cases and deaths in the country.
"Local self-government bodies’ leaders must use their resources to keep queues, obey the rules. As citizens, we should be ashamed of each other, say, 'What are you doing? Let's wake up.' And the search for the culprits is a pointless work because if the people are to blame, the government is also to blame, if the government is to blame, the people are also to blame because they brought the government to power.
We are one body, it is impossible to decouple us, saying, 'This is the government, and this is the people.' Whether good or bad, this is us. I'm convinced that we're good. The climate of fear has been overcome [in the country], but we have begun to use our freedom against ourselves. I believe in you, I believe in the citizen of the Republic of Armenia, I believe that this message will reach its destination. I believe that we can solve this issue together," said the Prime Minister.
