Today residents of Vanatur district, Hrazdan, resumed their protest
action in defense of MP Sasun Mikaelian arrested on March 12. Today
another Karabakh war veteran, Arshavir Bozinian, went on a hunger
strike, too. He has invited doctors of local medical center to examine
him. Doctors say Mikaelian suffers from a low pressure and heart
problems. Bozinian says he will never yield and will stage strikes
by the time Sasun Mikaelian is released.

According to local residents Gevorg Gevorgian who had commenced a
thirst strike earlier ceased it under police pressure.

By the way, today residents of Vanatur laid flowers on the monument
to Artsakh war victims instead of going out on a demonstration.
