On April 27 and 28 Nikol Pashinyan visited the cities Gyumri, Dilijan, Ijevan, Vanadzor, Spitak, Aparan and other towns and villages of Armenia with a motorcade running for many kilometers. On the way he was met by crowds of people greeting him with bread and salt. All the squares waiting for him for hours and not paying attention to the rainy weather were completely full, the speeches flaming, and the rallies unprecedented in the history of many cities.
During those rallies the opposition leader suggested to stop the actions of peaceful civil disobedience, which made the virtual platforms and media struggle even heated.
