Committee of Solidarity with EuroMaidan set up in Armenia

 Head of the Yerevan Press Club Boris Navasardyan posted a statement on Facebook announcing establishment of an Armenian Committee of Solidarity with Maidan.  

"The developments in Ukraine will have a huge impact on future of the post-Soviet countries, and the EU Eastern Partnership project member-countries, first, as well as on the all-European security and European values. Barricades and activists of Maidan protect also the Armenian public's aspiration for democracy and truly independent statehood. The citizens of Armenia that rose against the criminal oligarchy were shot to death on 1 March 2008. To suppress the nation-wide movement, the authorities used the police, army, snipers and criminals in uniform. By official data, 10 people died on that day, and no one has been brought responsible yet," Navasardyan says in the statement.  

He is sure that the freedom of expression is obviously suppressed by the same control center with the same "Lubyanka style." The law-enforcement and special services together with provocateurs and criminals commit unlawful acts and riot, Navasardyan writes. 

"We, the undersigned, expressed our support and solidarity with the citizens of Ukraine, who fight not only for their Freedom but also four ours, and establish an Armenian Committee of Solidarity with Maidan," Navasardyan writes.

The Committee's functions are to render political and moral assistance to Maidan, disseminate reliable and impartial information on what is taking place in Ukraine to the citizens of Armenia and the Armenians living abroad amid Russian Mass Media's large-scale propaganda campaign based on lie, xenophobia and hatred, Navasardsyan writes.

The statement was signed by a big number of Armenian citizens and Armenians from Paris, Kyev, Los- Angeles, Brussels and others.
