Tigran Karapetyan who is trying to play the role of Armenian Zhirinovsky, stated that all the political forces of Armenia work for foreign intelligence. Heritage works for the CIA, the rest work for the KGB.
These political forces have not publicly denied his allegations, apparently in order not to make it serious. But the residue is left. Is really everything in Armenia done by the order of foreign intelligence? Are there political forces which work outside the West-Russia intelligence confrontation and for the sake of Armenia’s sovereignty? Who benefits when foreign intelligence is blamed for all the disgrace of Armenia?
This total spy mania shows that everything in Armenia is considered through this prism. Citizens who stood up against illegal construction in Mashtots Park are also allegedly carrying out someone’s orders. It is true that no one can tell whose “project” this is but most people who are used to seeing spies everywhere urge not to believe them because it is a staged performance, and it is all about the election.
Nobody can answer the question how the citizens protesting for the protection of Mashtots Park are connected with the elections, everyone shakes they head indicating that everything is planned there.
This is the worst thing that the so-called elite could do with the Armenian society, turning them members into weak creatures who cannot even dare make their own decisions. Everything is done for you, you do not decide, we do not decide anything ourselves, many members of the elite say, pointing their hand in the direction of Moscow or a “global government”. Do you think it is easy to talk to the Russian president? Serzh Sargsyan complains.
As a result of this weakness the Armenian men cannot take decisions even regarding their own families. They cannot refuse to attend the campaign rallies of the president because they can see an endless chain of “sharp-eye” bosses. They cannot stop a brazen oligarch who builds a tall building between two houses.
Are the CIA or KGB to blame if the Armenian employers force their employees to work for 12 hours a day, paying them AMD 70 thousand a month, without signing a contract with them and hence depriving them of their future pension? Are the CIA or KGB to blame that Armenia has been paying pensions to thousands of people who died years ago while the head of the social security fund has not even been held responsible.
Of course, there is foreign intelligence and influence agents but the level of their influence depends on whether people in Armenia will learn making decisions. It is time to take off the glasses and understand that spy mania is mentioned on purpose to tie up our hands. Although, some people may benefit from tied hands, thus justifying their inaction.
