The journalist started his hunger strike on Sunday in Burbank in front of the building where U.S. Representative Adam B. Schiff’s District Office is located.

“According to WikiLeaks, the U.S. Government is well aware that Serzh Sargsyan is one of the most corrupt leaders among Post-Soviet republics. As Armenia’s #1 oligarch, he has manipulated the country’s laws and rigged elections in order to control at least half of Armenia’s most lucrative sectors and enterprises,” he said in a statement.

“I shall continue my hunger strike until U.S. President Barack Obama retracts his congratulations, which legitimize the official Armenian Presidential election results,” he said.

Serzh Sargsyan won the presidential election with 58.64% of votes. In second place with 36.75% was leader of the opposition "Heritage" party Raffi Hovannisian.
