Earlier, the second president of Armenia Robert Kocharyan harshly criticized the government and prime minister for blaming the previous authorities instead of working. Afterwards, a number of Republicans made counter-statements. In response, the office of the second 
president disseminated a statement wherein it declared that 'young Republicans' suffer from amnesia.
