An opposition rally is underway near the building of the Armenian Parliament in Yerevan.
About 2,000 people take part in the rally.
Law enforcement officers are on the spot, but the situation is peaceful.
Later, the protesters will move to the residence of President Armen Sargsyan.
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan dismissed the Chief of the General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces Onik Gasparyan, who had previously demanded his resignation. Pashinyan called the demand of the Chief of the General Staff an attempt at a military coup.
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Armenia says that the government cannot make right decisions during the crisis.
Armenian President Armen Sargsyan did not sign a decree on dismissing the Chief of the General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces Onik Gasparyan. The head of the Armenian government addressed the country's president with this request for the second time.
