Where are they taking us? Where is Serzh Sargsyan taking us? I know where. He's going to take you all, our people, our entire nation...to the Monte Carlo casino...and right there waste us all.
Ter-Petrossian quotes
Because of these two persons [Kocharyan and Sargsyan], 15,000 people have moved from Karabakh to Armenia, mainly Yerevan, in the past 10 years. Each of them has been given a position. As if that wasn’t enough, now the business sphere is also being given to them.
Ter-Petrossian
More and more, I am becoming convinced that truly I have a created a problem and have made a mistake. Although very late, with all honesty...I am asking for forgiveness from all of you, it was my fault for bringing Robert Kocharyan and Serzh Sargsyan and allowing them to choke your necks. If this was my mistake, then I am truly sorry. Wait, this was more than a mistake. This was a tragedy that I brought into the lives of my people. So...so please allow me, allow me to help save you from that crisis.




Ter-Petrossian Levon quotes
In these elections, you will also be able to lose the shame. In 1998, choosing Karen Demirchyan. In 2003, choosing Stepan Demirchyan. And consider this victory, a victory for all three of us in addition to a victory for Vazgen Sargsyan.
Ter-Petrossian Levon
If the aim of the current Armenian authorities was to disgrace the country, then they can be congratulated, this was clearly achieved.
Levon Ter-Petrossian quotes
After having wasted so many years, the current authorities of Armenia have quietly and secretly agreed to a plan that they had diligently presented as defeatist and treacherous in the past.
Levon Ter-Petrossian
16 years...a very short and very long time, when it comes to Armenia's history.
Ter-Petrossian Levon quotes
We are on the our way to a free market economy. Regardless of the mistakes and omissions, the government has managed to implement a firm and consistent economic policy. Regardless of how incomplete it still is, the transition to free market relations and democracy has become irreversible.
Ter-Petrossian
I have not come to beg for voices, that's Serzh's job...because in Armenia, he has no voice.
Ter-Petrossian Levon
The people who killed your sacred heads of state, the heads of Karen Demirchyan and Vazgen Sargsyan, want to maintain forever that foundation built on the spilling of blood.
Levon Ter-Petrossian
The government bodies known to you have presented me a resignation demand. Taking into account that the execution of the constitutional power of the president in the situation that has been created could pose serious danger to the stability of the country, I accept that demand and announce my resignation.




Levon Ter-Petrossian quotes
We protected Artsakh. This problem...at this moment...is solved...better conditions, better protection, have never existed in Artsakh before. We have also stabilized Armenia's security. Our government's most important factor. Keeping in mind that aggressive part of the world where Armenia is located. We solved the issue of security by following it. Armenia was the first government which decided to deal with others willingly. When Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Ukraine were hurrying to team with Russian forces, they were blaming us, criticizing, and cursing...that we weren't doing the same. That we were not creating an Armenian military. Slowly, events led to this day that Azerbaijan and Georgia don't have a military, but Armenia has a military of 60,000.
Levon Ter-Petrossian
Armenia stands firm on gaining full political independence.
Ter-Petrossian quotes
They [Kocharyan and Sargsyan] are happy with themselves. They got what they wanted.
Ter-Petrossian Levon
Struggle...struggle...to the end!
Ter-Petrossian Levon quotes
I cannot go forward based on emotions. Until I know the results of my actions, I will not go a step forward.
Levon Ter-Petrossian
I wouldn't fix one problem...I'd like to fix at least ten problems. For example, a better comprehension...when it comes to elections for heads of state. One. A more aggressive representation of not only myself but the entire government...positively influencing the economic situation. We have had, yes, mistakes...and careless maneuvers...you know, I won't point out one mistake, I'll mention ten.
