An award ceremony is being held at the residence of the President of Armenia on the occasion of the First Republic Day.

President Vahagn Khachaturyan is in attendance, as well as Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who did not visit the Sardarapat Memorial on this occasion for the first time this year.

Supporters of the Tavush for the Homeland movement, under the leadership of Archbishop Bagrat Galstanyan, went to the Sardarapat Memorial Monday and spent the night there, welcoming the day of proclamation of the First Republic of Armenia, May 28, at this symbolic memorial complex.

The protests in Armenia, and led by the Tavush for the Homeland movement, started after it became known on April 19 that Armenia and Azerbaijan had agreed to start border delimitation at Tavush Province of Armenia. Leading a respective march of protest from Tavush to Yerevan on May 9, Archbishop Bagrat Galstanyan, leader of this movement and then Primate of the Diocese of Tavush of the Armenian Apostolic Church, called on PM Nikol Pashinyan to resign.
