Armenian police have detained 38 opposition activists who blocked the streets of Yerevan demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, the press service of the country’s Interior Ministry told TASS.

“All 38 activists were taken to police stations because they did not comply with the lawful demands of the police officers,” the press service said, adding that the information was as of 9:50 a.m. local time (5:50 a.m. GMT).

Archbishop Bagrat, the leader of Armenia’s Tavush for the Homeland opposition movement, on Monday night called for tougher pressure on the authorities through civil disobedience.
