8 June, 2019 20:16 Is Russia Cultivating ‘Symmetric Separatism’ in Karabakh? On May 20, Pashinyan sharply rebuked the decision of an Armenian court to release Kocharyan from pre-trial detention. The judge in the case had acted in part based on a “guarantee request” submitted by the former and incumbent “presidents of Artsakh,” Arkadiy Ghukasyan and Bako Sahakyan, respectively (Armenpress.am, May 16). Whether intended this way or not, Kocharyan’s release deepened the preexisting rifts in Armenian society and was interpreted as a challenge to Pashinyan’s rule (see EDM, June 3). The Armenian prime minister urged his fellow citizens to reject outside efforts to drive a wedge between Armenians living at home and in Karabakh. “I call upon the people of Artsakh to support only those powers who support the people of Armenia and its legitimate representative government,” Pashinyan concluded (YouTube, May 20). 7 հունիս, 2019 11:36 Medieval Manuscripts as Art, Sacred Objects, and Cultural Heritage Scholars, policymakers and officials from Armenia’s government participated in Innovate Armenia - a festival of ideas and action that took place at the University of Southern California on May 18.
