According to Sputnik Armenia, the police began to detain opposition representatives who have been blocking the streets in the capital of the republic since morning.

The Armenian opposition is demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. On Tuesday, the oppositionists planned to hold large-scale protest actions with the blocking of the streets of Yerevan, as well as the main highways of the country.

On Monday, May 2, during similar protests, 244 people were detained by law enforcement forces.

The Armenian opposition has been holding large-scale protests since April 25. Opposition-minded citizens of the republic say that the country's authorities are pursuing a destructive policy for Armenia (as well as for the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic) policy. Such a policy, the protesters believe, can threaten the country with the most serious consequences - up to the loss of Armenia's statehood.

As RIA Novosti recalls, on May 1 columns of oppositionists from the cities of Tigranashen and Ijevan arrived in Yerevan. This reinforcement also takes an active part in the rallies.
