Our demand is a meeting with the prime minister. The police came, we negotiated, there will be a meeting with the deputy chief of police, according to that we will see if the police can intervene to organize a meeting with the prime minister. Garik Mkhitaryan, one of the parents of the fallen servicemen, on Wednesday told this to reporters outside the main building of the government of Armenia.

Earlier in the day, the families of the missing and fallen soldiers staged a protest in front of the aforesaid building—also closing off the avenue across.

"That’s why the road was [re]opened at this moment. We now demand a meeting [with the PM] within a month. We do not say we will meet right now. Some parents demand that their missing sons be returned soon. We met with the new head of the Investigative Committee, he said that he has formed a new team to deal with the cases of this [Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh)] war [last fall]," Mkhitaryan said, adding that now they are waiting for an answer as to when they can meet with the premier.
