YEREVAN (Sputnik) - Armenian demonstrators have blocked Marshal Bagramyan prospect in central Yerevan near the parliament building on Wednesday, calling on their Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan to resign.
Earlier in the day, Pashinyan told the parliament he was ready to make tough decisions and sign documents necessary for a long-lasting peace in Armenia, though other measures, including declaring martial law, were "also on the table."
Protesters took to the streets later on Wednesday, saying Pashinyan was ready to make concessions to Azerbaijan and calling on more people to demonstrate.
