The Rector of State Institute of Theatre and Cinema Armen Mazmanian did not go to Myasnikyan monument on March 1 to honor March 1 victims.
He went this night.
"I went at 1.30 am at night, I did not go the same day, since I did not want to participate in that entire commotion", - Armen Mazmanian told "A1+".
He has also referred to the student strike against the election results.
Armen Mazmanian considers ribaldry the rumors that he closed the doors of the Institute and did not allow students to participate in the strike.
"They lie, when they say that the doors were closed. The doors were locked only from the outside. None of the students has been told that in case of leaving it will be bad for them. On the first day of the student strike I did not approach the students, on the second day either. On the third day I approached and asked what they wanted, what their claim was, but I got no response. I said, if they were sure, they could go, but they did not have right to disturb other students' lessons ",- Armen Mazmanian said.
Note, that, for closing the doors of the State Institute of Theater and Cinema and for not letting the students participate in the student strike animator, professor Naira Mouradian left the institute.
