Nikol Pashinyan: Yerevan's authorities should have erected a monument to the victims of March 1 events rather than Anastas Mikoyan

 Yerevan's authorities should have erected a monument to the victims of the March 1 events rather than to Soviet-time leader Anastas Mikoyan, opposition MP Nikol Pashinyan said in the parliament on Tuesday.

"Such a monument would be dearer to Yerevan's residents, especial as the ten victims of the events were killed in the center of the city, near the Municipality. It seems that the municipal authorities prefer erecting monuments not to victims but to butchers like Mikoyan. Ask historians if you doubt that he was a butcher,"

Pashinyan told Deputy Mayor of Yerevan Kamo Areyan.
Areyan replied that it was the decision of the Council of Elders. "They received such an initiative and approved it," he said.
