Armenia needs to wait and see what step Russia will take. This is what government officials told citizens wishing to depart for Russia today, adding that Armenia has opened the border and receives foreign citizens, but needs to wait until the Russian government lets citizens of Armenia leave for Russia as well.
One of the citizens who had participated in the conversation with government officials said Russia might make an announcement on acceptance of foreign citizens or not on August 15. “We were told that the extension of the state of emergency has nothing to do with the opening of borders at all. Now we will go to the Embassy of the Russian Federation and submit our lists,” one of the participants of the demonstration said, adding that they will wait a few more days and hope the Prime Minister will solve the issue.
The participants of the demonstration moved towards the Embassy of the Russian Federation to submit the list of enlisted citizens.
