“Thanks to the Velvet Revolution, Armenians began smiling. They began greeting and hugging each other after so many years of suffocation and fear. The Armenian people are a kind and hard-working people. And nobody can underestimate them ever again. The fact that Nikol Pashinyan achieved power in Armenia despite the harsh and authoritarian regime
established in the country by Serzh Sargsyan and the Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) is truly astounding’’,-Stepan Grigoryan noted, adding- “Yet, today the people of Armenia have political power and a leader, Nikol Pashinyan, who has inspired hope that everything will improve in the country. And the actions of this Nikol Pashinyan and his supporters led to the collapse of the authoritarian regime in the country. There appeared the Citizen who believed that his every step laid the groundwork for the construction of a strong civil society’’.
