The lies that were presented to our people every day during the war made such a split in the perception of the war in Karabakh, Armenia, on the front line that it simply corroded the Armenian army, ex-president Robert Kocharyan said in an interview to the Armenian TV channel.
"Our people did not lose, our prime minister lost in this war, our government, this political team lost because their steps led to similar consequences," the second president noted.
“When a soldier on the front line sees what is happening, and the soldier's parents think that we have taken Getashen, Shaumyan, we will soon go to Kura, - and this led to the fact that the soldier on the front line did not understand what was happening. After such a stream of lies, people ceased to trust the state. And they thought what was happening: either we are part of one big game, or who are we? And for a soldier, a representative of the state is an officer, and mistrust in relation to the state immediately extends to distrust in relation to this officer. There were many cases when the soldiers did not obey the officers, especially from the mob-resource. There were also many such episodes on the Internet. I don't remember such cases in 1992-94 when people did not go to positions. I'm sure the reason is this lie.
