The Free Democrats Party condemns the assassination attempt on presidential candidate, leader of the Union for National Self-Determination Paruyr Hayrikyan.
“It was targeted first of all against Armenian statehood, and posed a challenge to all forces struggling for the establishment of democracy in Armenia.
It’s no accident that an assassination attempt was made on the person, who stood at the roots of Armenian independence and democratization.
We demand from the law-enforcement bodies to carry out a just investigation. We expect that those responsible for this crime will be revealed and punished as soon as possible.
We express our support to Paruyr Hayrikyan and wish him a speedy recovery,” reads the statement released by the Free Democrats Party.
