YEREVAN. – The incumbent authorities’ policy towards Armenology is anti-national. Eduard Sharmazanov, deputy chairman of the former ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA), told a press conference on Monday.
According to him, the campaign against everything Armenian has not started today. "Maybe it has become more visible nowadays, but the campaign has been going on for two years already," the RPA official said. Sharmazanov added that he and the RPA have talked about this, raised this issue in the parliament in June 2018, when the new authorities presented their program.
According to the politician, it is obvious that the campaign against the national values and traditions of the Armenian people has become larger. "The words 'nationalist' and 'patriotism' do not exist for them [the incumbent Armenian authorities]. We saw that people of non-traditional values were walking with them—and they are many. The opponents of our church were also there," the RPA representative said.
