His post reads as follows:
Like the overwhelming majority of the people, I also learned about the signed statement from the press.
Disagreeing with the position of the political team, I declare.
1. I am leaving the “My Step” faction, from now on I will act as an independent deputy.
2. I will direct my further parliamentary activity to get out of the current situation with as few losses as possible, I will start solving the problems of the Artsakh Armenians. It is only for this reason that I do not resign from my parliamentary mandate.
God protect us.
