A rally for #Armenia's withdrawal from the #CSTO is taking place on France Square in #Yerevan.
Protesters in Yerevan stand with American flags and posters calling for withdrawal from the CSTO

Nancy Pelosi said that Russia failed to fulfill its allied obligations to protect Armenia and offered US assistance. To accept it or not it is the choice of the Armenian authorities.
Armenia has received a historic chance to get out of the sphere of #Russian influence and choose the right path. Meanwhile, the #CSTO has once again confirmed its status as a useless, worthless organization created to suppress uprisings in post-Soviet dictatorships.

#ThisDay Sep 16, 1976, #Armenia'n finswimmer, Shavarsh Karapetyan saved the lives of 20 people in the #Yerevan Lake incident, when suddenly a trolleybus crashed into it. While most watched in horror, Karapetyan sprang into action. He had one goal: save as many people as possible.
The trolleybus lay at the bottom of the reservoir some 25 metres (80 ft) offshore at a depth of 10 metres (33 ft). Karapetyan swam to it and, despite conditions of almost zero visibility, due to the silt rising from the bottom, broke the back window with his legs.
The trolleybus was crowded, it carried 92 passengers, Karapetyan started bringing people up from the bottom of the lake, to his waiting brother. The combined effect of multiple lacerations from glass shards led to Karapetyan's hospitalization for 45 days.

Big attack on the southern #Ukraine city of #Mykolaiv overnight.

The mayor has so far only said some private houses were hit. No news on casualties yet.

Armenia's Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has warned Europeans about Turkey in view of the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh. "I expect a clear position.
If the international community does not correctly assess the geopolitical significance of this situation, Europe should soon expect Turkey near Vienna," Pashinyan told the "@BILD". After a hundred years, Turkey returned to the South Caucasus
"in order to continue the genocide of the Armenians that took place in Turkey in autumn 1915," Pashinyan said. At the same time he accused Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of an imperialist policy. This extends much further than in the South Caucasus.

This is interesting: Evgeniy "#Putin's chef" Prigozhin gives short interview to state his "personal opinion" on #NagornoKarabakh. Some takeaways:
- Karabakh is #Azerbaijan's territory
-#Russia has no legal grounds to conduct mil activity in Karabakh
1/ Image
-there're more American NGOs in #Armenia than national military units - Prez Pashinyan is to blame
- unitl 2018 Russia was able to ensure ARM & AZ discuss conflcit at negotiatign table, than #US brought Pashinyan to power in #Yerevan and he feels he's a king & can't talk to Aliev
I wonder if Prigozhin's remarks suggest he'd be reluctant to deploy his Wagner guys to Armenia, if needed be/he is asked to do so or he's just indeed stating his own views or it's a way to delicatly allude to Pashinyan that #Moscow not happy w/ him..?
