As I know his opponent was Grigor Margatyan, the owner of the Belagio restaurant, so I think there is no use to go on hunger-strike, to demand justice, when everything is bought. It’s Armenia!!!
Then, politics is not the best sphere for the sportsmen…

blansh, politics is not the best place for restaurant owners, either. As for the hunger strike, you fight for your rights by any means you can.
