30 November 2013 - 4:38pm

The Arnenian opposition protests against the country's accession to
the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

According to the leader of the opposition National Self-Determination
Movement, Paruyir Ayrikyan, the government's decision not to sign the
associate membership agreement with the EU was a great mistake and a
crime against the Armenian people.

President Serzh Sargsyan "has simply denied the Armenian people's
right to develop," the politician says. He underlines also that it was
Russia that forced Armenia not to sign the agreement.

He notes that the opposition will hold a protest rally on the day
Vladimir Putin visits Yerevan.
