Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan says that law enforcement agencies should react to the news about the presence of "Wagner" fighters in the country, Pashinyan noted during a question-and-answer session in the parliament, APA reports citing Sputnik Armenia.

Armenia's law enforcement agencies should respond to the articles published in the media. As far as I know, this is also the norm in the Criminal Procedure Code. Such news circulated on "Telegram" channels. The National Security Service verifies this published information within its powers," the Prime Minister said.

He noted that there is nothing unusual here.

When Nikol Pashinyan was asked whether he had any concerns about "a possible revolution in Armenia initiated by Russia", the head of government said that only the people of Armenia can create it. And the Armenian people made this revolution," Pashinyan noted.

Note that last week, reports were spread on a number of pro-government social media pages of Armenia that there are nearly 3,000 fighters of "Wagner" in the country and that they will attempt a coup with the support of local forces and remove the Prime Minister from his position.
