The police opened the traffic part of Baghramyan Avenue. The participants of the sit strike were removed from the middle of the avenue and the first cars passed. The police did it, as it was promised, without using violence, though to remove the participants of the rally, it was necessary to raise them and move to the sidewalk. The deputies of the National Assembly Nikol Pashinyan, Naira
Zohrabyan, Vahe Enfiajyan and the representatives of public organizations were at the site. Armenpress reports that several activists were detained by the police. The number of them is not known yet.
Earlier it was reported that the Police of the Republic of Armenia is going to restore the traffic on Baghramyan Avenue on July 6, which was idle for nearly two weeks, as well as remove from the avenue the objects, which hinder the traffic. The press service of the Police of the Republic of Armenia informed Armenpress that notwithstanding the fact that the Police has already warned the organizers and participants of the illegal rally to remove the blocking of the avenue voluntarily, these calls were fully ignored during the recent days. Nevertheless, the Police of the Republic of Armenia once again and for the last time suggests the organizers and participants of the rally to voluntarily remove the blocking of Baghramyan Avenue by 12:30. Otherwise, from 12:30 the Police of the Republic of Armenia will do it with the use of its powers. The Police of the Republic of Armenia announces as well that the abovementioned actions are not aimed at stopping the rally, if it continues on the nontraffic part of the avenue and does not hinder the normal course of traffic on Baghramyan Avenue.
