The participants of Tavush for the Homeland movement are heading from Armenian capital Yerevan to Kirants.

On May 15, after a statement by the Armenian foreign ministry and the clarification by the government regarding the border delimitation process in Kirants, the latter’s residents once again blocked the road, met with the governor of Tavush, expressing their disapproval, as the village will be divided, and the houses of several Kirants villagers will pass on to the Azerbaijani side.

Those who have joined the Tavush for the Homeland movement are against the incumbent Armenian authorities’ policy of unilateral concessions to Azerbaijan. In this connection, they are carrying out actions of civil disobedience, especially in the capital Yerevan.
