Deputy of the National Assembly of Armenia, press-secretary of the Prosperous Armenia Party, Tigran Urikhanyan, has come forward with a statement because of switching off the water supply system of Araratcement plant. He said that "some men, which introduced themselves as ecologists", accompanied by policemen, closed the pump station of the channel towards the plant and nearby settlements, and in fact, directed water resources to Azerbaijan.
'I am confident, that it is clear to everybody that eagerness of the stooges of certain forces to damage the plant and about 1600 its workers is conditioned by political disagreements, and has no moral borders. Although it looks strange, but the owner of the Avshar wine factory, Araik Grigoryan, which is the brother of the governor of the Ararat region, said that the plant has debts. For this reason, the water supply system was switched off. I would like to remind that Araratcement has no debt. Moreover, the plant overpaid for services. This information is official and available to everybody", - Urikhanyan said.
Stemming from the above mentioned, Urikhanyan said that Grigoryan's explanation is lie. "There is no doubt that the owner of the Avshar wine factory may pretend at Azerbaijani certificate of gratitude", - Urikhanyan concluded.
To recall, Araratcement plant is within the "Multigroup" group of companies which belongs to the leader of the Prosperous Armenia Party, Gagik Tsarukyan.
