The group of armed extremists who seized a police station in the Armenian capital of Yerevan has surrendered to authorities. 20 armed extremists have laid down their guns after two weeks of confrontation over the course of which two police officers were killed at the hands of the terrorists.
The standoff in the Armenian capital of Yerevan between militants of the radical opposition organization “Constitutive Parliament” and security forces is ongoing. The holding hostage of security personnel has given rise to the organization of street confrontations against the acting government in the style of the Ukrainian “Maidan.”
The putsch attempt continues in Armenia as events unfold. Recently, the bandits who seized the police station in Yerevan's Erebuni district, released all the hostages which they had previously held. However the police have stated that they are not going to storm the building. Armenian President Serge Sargsyan even agreed to talk with their leader, Zhirayr Sefilyan, who is now in prison. The condition for negotiations which the president is considering is the surrender of the rebels. Earlier, gunmen demanded that the press center nearby be reopened.
