Statement on the participation of minors in demonstrations in the capital Yerevan

As marches and protests continue in the capital Yerevan in relation to the country’s former president’s appointment as the prime minister, World Vision is concerned for the protection and safety of minors said to be participating in these protests.

As demonstrations often result in violence, World Vision calls on both the police and leaders of the demonstrations to allow the protests to proceed in a peaceful way, paying particular attention to the safety of any children involved.
