Armenia has witnessed weeks of protests and civil disobedience led by the opposition Armenian Revolutionary Federation party, which called for the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.

The anti-government protests began on May 1 in the Armenian capital due to concerns that Pashinyan was poised to make major concessions to Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.
