That Levon Ter-Petrosyan is quite indifferent towards his companions-in-arm is not a secret, but at least these days he should have been a bit sensitive.
As we know these days MP Sasun Mikaelyan’s 57 year old brother died, after a bad illness. His funeral took place in village Vanatur in Hrazdan, on June 2.
Levon Ter-Petrosyan’s representatives have visited Vanatur many times to participate in political functions, but during those visits they have never visited Sasun Mikaelyan’s sick brother. Well aware of the cold attitude of their “boss” the relatives didn’t even tell him about what had happened.
The behavior of Levon’s supporters changed when they learnt that the law enforcers allowed Sasun Mikaelyan to participate in his brother’s funeral. Therefore they advised Levon Ter-Petrosyan to participate in the funeral.
They said if Sasun Mikaelyan and Levon Ter-Petrosyan were there, most probably the funeral would turn into a political function.
The latter of course liked the idea. Moreover he ordered to organize “informational overflow”, to spread that he is going to participate in the funeral, so that more and more people will gather there. And these people immediately started to exercise the program of turning the tragedy into a political function. And, by the way, they seemed to manage.
But in the morning Ter-Petrosyan and his supporters were surprised to see that they didn’t manage to gather as much people as they needed and those participating in the funeral were far not in that mood. Learning about this Levon Ter-Petrosyan decided not to participate in the funeral, because actually he didn’t have any intentions to express his condolences to the family members.
The village people were shocked. “Couldn’t Ter-Petrosyan come and participate in the funeral at least for two hours?” Seeing the atmosphere in Hrazdan L. Ter-Petrosyan’s supporters tried to correct their mistake after 2-3 days. But Sasun Mikaelyan’s relatives didn’t react. As we know Sasun Mikaelyan himself was very upset, but he avoided any commentaries and he asked to close that topic.
It is the same Sasun Mikaelyan who took illegal steps for the sake of Levon Ter-Petrosyan and at the moment he is detained. We will absolutely not be shocked if in future LTP forgets about his other companions-in-arm – Hakob Hakobyan, Myasnik Malkhasyan and others.
The only thing LTP wants is power and Sasun Mikaelyan and all the others are simple tools for him.
By the way what we thought was that Levon Ter-Petrosyan would not only participate in the funeral but also visit the freedom-fighters on hunger strike in Yerablur, Vanatur, Gyumry, that he will be concerned about their health, instead of sitting in his “black castle” and playing chess, as he did during Sargis Mikaelyan’s funeral.
