“A foreign radio station has become the mouthpiece of the Armenian
opposition,” a representative of the Armenian Revolutionary
Federation-Dashnaktsutyun [ARFD] bureau, Grank Markaryan, has
announced in Tehran. When you watch Armenian Public TV, it seems that
everything is OK in the country. When you listen to Radio Liberty, it
turns out that Armenia is ruled by dictatorship and people are being
arrested and beaten and that the overall situation is bad”.

To recap, Radio Liberty was banned from broadcasting in Armenia by the
country’s authorities back in 1994 on the pretext of the station being
the mouthpiece of Dashnaktsutyun.
