Protesters in Yerevan blocking road to airport
The protesters in Yerevan are blocking the road leading to the Yerevan airport "Zvartnots."
Judging by the video footage, the road is blocked on both sides. Police persuaded the protesters to open the road, RIA Novosti reported.
Armenian opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan called on his supporters to block all roads and airports across the country on May 2.
Protests against the election of former President Serzh Sargsyan as Armenia's Prime Minister have started on April 13. The opposition accused Sargsyan, who was twice elected president, of poor governance and deterioration of economic situation in the country. Despite the protests, the Armenian Parliament elected Sargsyan as Head of the Cabinet on the same day. On April 23, Sargsyan resigned amid continuing protests.
