YEREVAN. – Representatives of the Soros foundation came to power in Armenia under the rule of PM Nikol Pashinyan. Eduard Sharmazanov, deputy chairman of the former ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA), told this to a press conference on Monday, commenting on Pashinyan's recent statement that such organizations had appeared in Armenia during the tenure of second president Robert Kocharyan and third president Serzh Sargsyan.
Sharmazanov noted that in those years, the representatives of these organizations had not been appointed ministers in Armenia. "[In those years,] the Soros members have not made any decision on the implementation of state policy. They have not made any decision. They were not part of the halls of power," Sharmazanov said.
