movement stresses out the fact that the authorities and the Prime Minister
Nikol Pashinyan personally are responsible for the attack on the children and
wife of lawyer, barrister Tigran Atanesyan. The manifestations of escalating
violence in the Republic of Armenia stem directly from the atmosphere of hatred
that Pashinyan has been consistently generating through irresponsible statements,
hate speech and intentional negligence.
These authorities, who have made
hatred and violence into their main tool of governance, have turned the state
into a machine of terror. Nikol Pashinyan, members of his team and their
families will bear the political, legal and moral consequences of all this.
There is no reason to expect that
this incident will not simply add to the list of many other manifestations of
terror that remain unpunished in Armenia for political reasons. Unfortunately,
this also implies that the situation inside the country will worsen.
The Adekvad movement will support
lawyer Tigran Atanesyan and his family, as well as all those who have been
targeted by these criminal authorities.
about 20 members of the Adekvad
movement were arrested in front of the Anti-Terrorism and Extremism Unit of
the General Department of Criminal Police of the RA Police for allegedly
disobeying the instructions of the Commandant’s Office during a national emergency and allegedly
violating the rules of social distancing.
However, the abovementioned reasoning does not correspond
to the reality, as the members of the
movement did not violate the rules
of social distancing and did not resist or disobey the demands of the police. The
Human Rights Office has sent a response team to the Central Police Department,
where the detainees are being held. Arthur Danielyan has now left the
department and is speaking
to the Press.
May 20 of this year, Artur Danielyan, leader of the Adekvad movement, was
invited to the General Department of Criminal Police of the RA Police to give
an explanation within the framework of a case still unknown to us.
movement invites media representatives to Arthur Danielyan’s press conference,
which will take place at the entrance of the building of the General Department
of Criminal Police, after the end of interrogation.
movement welcomes the efforts of the Criminal Police in the fight against
terrorism and extremism and hopes that the case will not add to the list of
criminal cases of political persecution.
The Movement reaffirms its eagerness to support all stakeholders in the fight against many extremist and terrorist crimes in the Republic of Armenia.
are deeply saddened to learn that the terrorists, who have been involved in
criminal activities in the past, have not been punished due to the negligence,
inaction of the previous and current authorities that have often involved anti-state
tendencies. The criminal circles, that are also proponents of the ruling power,
that beat the lieutenant colonel of the RA Armed Forces, leaving the latter in
a coma for 8 months, have not been punished. Foreign agents, led by the current
Prime Minister, who overthrew the constitutional order and obstructed justice,
have not been punished. Those responsible for the death of a journalist who
died of a hunger strike while in custody have not been punished. The crimes of
sexual minorities and people with other mental disorders are unpunished. The
hooligan groups of foreign agents that attempted to kidnap an opposition activist
were not punished. Representatives of groups spreading misinformation and hate-speech,
financed by illegal entrepreneurship have not been punished.
movement is ready to provide comprehensive assistance to law enforcement in the
solving of these and many other serious crimes.
hope that Artur Danielyan has been summoned to the Anti-Terrorism and Extremism
Department of the General Department of Criminal Police to reveal such crimes.
The Turks and the British could not separate us from Artsakh, but the coronavirus managed to do so, albeit only temporarily. Today we celebrate our victories in Nagorno-Karabakh with war hero Ashot “the Yerkat” Minasyan.
We claim ownership of our victories and we are proud of them, because the victory in the Great Patriotic War is ours, as well as victory in Artsakh War is.
Today, at around 5:20 pm, while walking in Masthots Park on Aram Street, Yerevan, the leader of Adekvad movement Artur Danielyan was attacked by the Vice-President of the Naitonal Assembly of RA Alen Simonyan. The latter hit Danielyan in the face, breaking his nose. As a result, Artur Danielyan turned to self-defense. The fact that Alen Simonyan started the fight is confirmed in his own interview with “Azatutyun” radio station. Currently, Arthur Danielyan is in Erebuni Medical Center and has the status of a detainee.
1. We demand the release of the video footage of the incident.
What took place was yet another provocation
by the government. The ruling
power was unable to provoke us through hooligans in Maralik and to prosecute us
based on that, the ruling power was unable to provoke us through the criminal
element, the ruling power was unable to provoke us through sending “fake
Jesuses” to our head office, the ruling power was unable to provoke us through
relentless swearing. Hence the ruling power turned to their heavy artillery –
to the Deputy Speaker of the NA, who, after his effort to provoke failed,
attacked and hit Artur Danielyan, who was demonstratively holding his hands
behind his back. Currently this incident is being presented as an attack on a
2. We condemn the fact that the Vice-Speaker, for two days in a row already, has been
behaving in a manner befitting a hooligan. At the same time, we do not regret
that the person who was
committing hooliganism has received a worthy response, if you will, a
3. The full responsibility of the situation lies with the
ruling power and, Alen Simonyan, in particular.
4. Alen Simonyan was the first to use
physical force, which is recorded both in the videos and by the witnesses and
in the interview given by Alen Simonyan
himself to RFE / RL.
Simonyan is not a victim, he provoked a clash, and he is responsible for the
consequences, including the consequences for his own health.
5. We condemn outrage and permissiveness. Moreover, we reaffirm our
intolerance of such
behavior and state of affairs, and henceforth we will severely punish all such
manifestations of trespassing on us.
6. In the Republic of Armenia, the
Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly attacks the political opponents of the
government. In broad
daylight, in public, in front of many witnesses. This is the bastion of
democracy which we live in.
According to the
“Armenian Times” tabloid, the Nairi Police Department is preparing materials
based on the publication of a demand to apologize by a participant of the group
of so-called “guardians of the revolution” of a citizen who cursed RA Prime
Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
This was preceded
by a strong reaction from the foreign agency network in Armenia, which, in
fact, was the basis for law enforcement to try to bring the young people to
justice, who were simply trying to correct the atmosphere of irresponsibility
in the country.
Minister of the Republic of Armenia, who serves the agenda of foreign agents,
personally referred to the case and condemned the youth, which was certainly expected,
as it was Nikol Pashinyan who had been nurturing the same atmosphere of
irresponsibility in Armenia for many years. At the same time, the same agents
justified in every possible way the insidious attack of the “Restart”
hooligan group on the leader of the “Veto” opposition movement.
By rejecting the
image of an irresponsible person in principle, the “Adekvad” movement calls on
the authorities to refrain from putting pressure on young people pursuing the
just demands of our people. The movement expresses its support to all the
citizens who are ready to contribute to the elimination of the atmosphere of
irresponsibility and are ready to support even the so-called “guardians of the
revolution”. The legal team of our movement is ready to defend the rights
of young people in court if necessary.
leadership of the movement will closely monitor the steps taken by the law
enforcement agencies in this incident, considering this one of the watersheds
that, by crossing, we will either develop to a state of dignified and just
citizens, or a swamp that criminally pursues dignity and responsibility.
The Ministry of
Labor and Social Affairs of the Republic of Armenia has recently issued a
statement in which it mentioned the name of the “Adekvad” movement.
movement considers this statement to be a blasphemous and irresponsible
practice aimed at hurting our reputation and discrediting our activities. In
fact, this tax-paying institution, instead of doing its job, is resorting to manipulation
of information, as it has not taken any steps to verify the authenticity of the
information published. Instead, the ministry preferred to add itself to Nikol
Pashinyan’s list of personal slanderers. If this ministry utilizes this same
working style in performing its core responsibilities, by spreading such
misinformation from its official platform, one can conclude the catastrophic
state of the social security sector in Armenia.
We look at this
episode within the same context as all the previous slanderous episodes that
tried to present us as terrorists in uniform, as a gang, as a unit threatening
people on the street, and so on. As in all of these slanderous episodes, the
government will fail yet again.
movement declares that no one from the movement has visited Gyumri, that the
citizen is not a member of the movement and does not act on our behalf.
movement demands that the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs of the Republic
of Armenia issue a public denial within 24 hours and apologize to the “Adekvad”
movement for mentioning our name in such a slanderous manner.
force us to use the same tools against you, because even in that case we will
be much more effective than you.
A new political party is coming to replenish the political field in the Republic of Armenia. The “Adekvad” movement is holding founding congress of the party of the same name on September 7, 2019, which will take place at “Erebuni Plaza” Business Center at 11:00 am.
congress of the “Adekvad” party will present the party’s program and the declaration,
including the basic principles, goals and directions of its activities.
Armenian government decided to provide about 34 million drams to two
non-governmental organizations to
use this grant to organize oversight over elections in the Republic of Artsakh.
The above-mentioned NGOs are part of a foreign agency network that has been
destroying the foundations of the state and society in Armenia for years. We
note that foreign financial institutions not only refuse to recognize the
subjectivity of the Artsakh Republic, but also continue to use double
standards and apply false equality to the
activities of aggressor –
and the forces fighting for their physical security and existence – the Armed
Forces of the Republic of Artsakh. The NGOs have been consistently appealing to both sides to maintain the
ceasefire, while the Armenian side has never had any motivation to violate the
Moreover, by sponsoring
the activities of the above-mentioned NGOs, the Government of the Republic of
Armenia contributes to the penetration of the defensive forces of our besieged
fortress, which is essential for foreign forces and serves the agenda of the
destructive enemy for our states. Unable to overcome the walls of our castle
from the outside, the enemy tries to destabilize the situation from the inside.
The control of the electoral process itself provides an opportunity to acquire
significant and sensitive intelligence data, which will most likely appear on
the tables of the enemy’s relevant service very soon.
“control” electoral processes will be allegedly aimed at protecting
the rights of vulnerable groups, increasing the transparency of state
governance, and protecting the rights of minorities, while in reality, media
manipulation perpetrated by these NGOs based on fraud will sow mutual hatred
and envy. This has been the case in Armenia for decades, and this will happen
in Artsakh if these initiatives do not meet proper
abovementioned into account, we call on the Artsakh authorities and the
representatives of the opposition forces not to allow their political disagreements
to be a tool to divide our society. Attempts to infiltrate through foreign
agents will be far more painful and destructive than any political or
In the hybrid
war declared on us, we continue to suffer defeats, as we are used to seeing the
enemy only in the uniform of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, while the enemy has
been living next to us for a long time and often has a last name ending in
Based on the
complex geopolitical balance and the fragile status quo, the main burden of
which has been on the shoulders of the political-military leadership of
Artsakh, we have always refrained from responding to the internal political
developments in Artsakh. However, given such an impudent precedent of foreign
penetration, we have to state that from now on the maintenance of this
neutrality is tantamount to criminal inaction. Consequently, currently there is
an urgency in the need to support our compatriots who, after decades of fighting
in the trenches with the overt enemy, may be confused when confronted with the covert
And this is an
issue that the “Adekvad” movement is committed to and will take the initiative
in the near future.
“Adekvad” NGO announces a phase of active engagement, expressing its opposition to the REAL clients of yet another episode of the brutal failure of the constitutional order.
“Adekvad” NGO declares that Nikol Pashinyan is just the perpetrator of this sabotage leading to the loss of the statehood of Armenia, and the real levers are in the hands of the hidden owners of the foreign agency network.
Over the years, the EU Office has in fact sponsored the emergence of an economic, political, financial, psychological, social, legislative, personnel and now judicial crisis in Armenia. Thus, the EU contributes not to the strengthening of democratic values in Armenia, but, on the contrary, to their devaluation.
The spontaneous action of the followers of “Adekvad” movement is taking place in front of the office of the delegation of the European Union to Armenia. Dozens of participants are protesting EU presence in Armenia with the following inscriptions: “Svitalsik” (“Svitalsky”), “Take your puppets back” (take back your puppets), “Armenia under occupation” etc.
To all those who are aware of the catastrophic consequences of this sabotage, the participants of the movement call upon to join us the EU office.
