Armenian street art group Hakaharvats (Counter Strike) yesterday held an action on Baghramyan Ave. near the RA National Assembly building: the activists plastered a poster of the RA President Serzh Sargsyan on the wall of the building.
The image of Sargsyan with the caption “Counter Strike” covering his mouth appeared on the NA wall at around 9 PM, July 24.
In February, 2015 the street art group plastered a similar poster featuring Catholicos of All Armenians Karekin II on one of the walls of Pushkin St. in Yerevan.
Note, the activists were earlier fined for spreading a banner across Bghramyan Ave. with the caption "Kherzhik Suy” (a play on words which roughly translated means 'Serzhik is a d*ickhead;' protest action similar to that of Russian activists against Vladimir Putin – 'Khutin Puy'). A Yerevan court imposed an arrest on the bank accounts of the two young artists – Artak Gevorgyan and Herbert Gevorgyan – and obliged each of them to pay an administrative penalty in the amount of AMD 58,000 ($ 120).
