On February 25, the Armenian Armed Forces demanded the resignation of the Prime Minister of the Republic Nikol Pashinyan and his government. The Supreme Council asserted that the Prime Minister and the Cabinet of Ministers are not able to make “adequate decisions in a crisis and fateful situation for the Armenian people.”

After that, Pashinyan fired the head of the General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces, who demanded the resignation of the government. However, Armenian President Armen Sarkissian did not sign the letter of resignation.
