There were endless statements over the past few weeks that voting at the PACE to deprive Armenian delegation of voting rights is a “humiliation” for our country. Well, we are now escaped that “humiliation” for at least 2 more months. PACE has just voted to come back to Armenia’s implementation of its obligations at its April session. But did we escape from real humiliation? I do not think so. PACE is not a right place to look at for “humiliation”.
I am not mentioning here broader issues like no free elections, state of human rights in general and so on.
Here are real humiliations which Armenia faces currently (my top 3):
1. Existence of political prisoners
2. Armenian parliament
3. Lack of independent TV station (with nation-wide coverage)
