The case of March 1 was fully disclosed, Nikol Pashinyan said during the rally in Yerevan. According to him, there is no option for a single leader of this crime to escape responsibility. Those guilty of killing ten people on March 1, 2008 will be punished.
'Now, many people, realising that their hours are numbered, that their place is in prison, that they will answer to the people, began to present themselves as victims of political persecution,' the Armenian premier stressed.
'All of you will be imprisoned as assassins, I am authorised to declare it on behalf of the Armenian people, citizens of Armenia,' Pashinyan said.
He pointed out that some people say that a 'civil war' is possible in Armenia: 'Civil war can only be in your offices. How many citizens' support do you have to start a civil war? 17 former corrupt officials and 22 other fakes. This is your civil support,' Pashinyan said.
According to him, if someone once again threatens a 'civil war,' the National Security Service of Armenia will deal with it.

'I will not sign a single piece of paper on Karabakh in secret from you. If there is an option, I will come here, I will introduce it to you, and you will decide whether we should act on this option or not,' said Nikol Pashinyan during the rally on the Republic Square in Yerevan.
He accused his opponents of acquiring media, creating fake accounts in social networks and spreading rumours that the Pashinyan government came to power allegedly in order to 'surrender the territories.'
According to Pashinyan, in fact it was his predecessors who planned to do it, and he has all the documents at his fingertips that confirm this.
'We are ready for a peaceful settlement, but anyone who tries to suspect me of the intention to surrender the territories does not understand that the issue is not decided by the government, but by the people,' Pashinyan added.
He stressed that he has not entered into any talks on Karabakh so far.

'Today the Armenian people are more united than ever. Today is the day of victory for the entire Armenian people. This is a rally of the unity of the Armenian people,' said Nikol Pashinyan, writes Aysor.
In their hands the rally participants hold posters with the crossed out portrait of Serzh Sargsyan.
Nikol Pashinyan also addressed the April events, as a result of which Serzh Sargsyan resigned, which, according to him, became possible only thanks to the Armenian people, not the West or the North.
'The strength that made this unprecedented event possible, exceptional and powerful, is the Armenian people, the citizen proud and with dignity, the Diaspora, every Armenian... The direct rule of the people, the direct power of the people was established in Armenia,' the prime minister said.

A rally was held at the Republic Square in Yerevan, convened by the Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. During the rally, Pashinyan sums up his work in 100 days.
At the rally, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in support of the incumbent government of Armenia and Nikol Pashinyan.
'This rally is not directed against anyone,' Pashinyan said, adding that the action only symbolises 100 days of people's victory in the 'velvet revolution.'
He also noted that what happened was exactly a revolution, because there was a change in the system of government.
