Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process

Civic activists, who have been fighting possible public transport fare hike in Yerevan, were not allowed to take part in an open session of Yerevan Council of Elders.
For this reason, they held a protest action near Yerevan Mayor's office. As a result, 2 activists, Dvin Isanyan and Vahagn Minasyan were detained.
Although the session is open, the police permit neither the activists nor the news reporters to enter. They claim that there is no room inside, and unauthorized persons may participate in the session only at invitation of the Mayor or the faction of the Council.
