Nalbandian: Racism and racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance grossly violate human dignity and give rise to tensions within and between societies. That is why the fight against them became one of the main priorities of our chairmanship.

Armenia's former head of National Security Service, David Shakhnazaryan, said at today's protest action in front of Ukraine's Embassy in Yerevan that he blames President of Russia Vladimir Putin for the 1 March 2008 events in Yerevan and the current events in the center of Kyiv.
To note, some two dozen people on Wednesday assembled near Victory Park in Armenia's capital city Yerevan. They marched towards the Embassy of Ukraine in Yerevan, to express their support to the Ukrainians who are waging a fight at EuroMaidan, in Ukrainian capital city Kyiv.
Shakhnazaryan thinks that Putin is trying to establish Yanukovich's dictatorship in Ukraine, although the latter has stopped being the legitimate president of Ukraine since yesterday and the parliament stopped functioning as a political structure. He said that the world community should adequately esteem actions of the authorities of Ukraine.
