Actions of civil disobedience have resumed in Yerevan since early Tuesday morning.

Protesters have closed off several streets again in the Armenian capital.

During the gathering Monday, the leader of the opposition Tavush for the Homeland movement, Archbishop Bagrat Galstanyan had said as follows: "We will stay here [on Marshal Baghramyan Avenue, which runs along the main entrance of the parliament building] tonight. Starting tomorrow morning, various activities will take place in various places. June 12 is very important for us. The presence of multiple forces is extremely important. What we will do is another matter, but being here is extremely important."

The protests and civil disobedience actions by the opposition Tavush for the Homeland movement, led by Archbishop Bagrat Galstanyan, had started in Armenia after it became known on April 19 that Armenia and Azerbaijan had agreed to start border delimitation at Tavush Province of Armenia. After holding subsequent demonstrations in Kirants village of Tavush Province for days, Archbishop Galstanyan had announced that he was going to march to Yerevan to demand the resignation of PM Nikol Pashinyan. Arriving in the Armenian capital on May 9, Galstanyan held a large rally demanding Pashinyan's resignation. And during the rally on May 26, the transitional government was announced, whose PM candidate is Archbishop Bagrat Galstanyan.
