ARF Dashnaktsutyun parliamentary group leader Vahan Hovhannisyan responded to the statement of opposition Armenian National Congress (ANC) leader delivered during May 31 rally at Liberty Square.
As Levon Ter-Petrossian claimed, during the Karabakh war years, ARFD used everyday rallies to destabilize Armenia and break the morale of the Armenian army.
“At the time, almost all ARFD representatives were at the front, with every 1 in 8 ARFD members having perished in the war. That was a mean statement to make,” Hovhannisyan said.
“The picture becomes clearer if one recalls that Armenian forces kept Shushi liberation secret from the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces (the President), ” he said, reminding that ARFD was at the outset of Armenian armed forces formation.
