This movement is a movement that has no external assistance, pursues national-liberation, high spiritual and moral values. The leader of the opposition Tavush for the Homeland movement of Armenia, Archbishop Bagrat Galstanyan, told this to a press conference Wednesday.

"We have to solve our problems at home. This is a national-liberation movement with an Armenian agenda with clean, pure, spiritual content," added Galstanyan.

According to the archbishop, it doesn't matter that their movement has no external assistance, and they will force not only the Armenian authorities, but also the world to take them into account.

"These authorities have filled especially the Western world with the latest disinformation, with all possible options. And I am not upset in any way, understanding very well what motives, what layers the world has," said Galstanyan.

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.
