MP: Millennium Challenge Corporation stopped financing Armenia because of corrupt schemes applied in the country

The Millennium Challenge Corporation stopped financing Armenia because of corrupt schemes applied in the country, opposition MP Naira Zohrabyan said in the parliament on Wednesday.

She said that as much as $16.6mln was misused under such schemes. "It turns out that this money was used to teach Armenian farmers to correctly grow potato and milk cows," Zohrabyan said. 

Concerning the budget 2013, she said that while the government keeps claiming that everything is OK, more and more people are becoming poor.  "If everybody is saint who then has stolen the cross from the dome of the church?" Zohrabyan said quoting an old anecdote. "Our government has created a virtual world and is not willing to come out of it. All of their figures are just empty talk. If everything is OK, then why have they failed to increase GDP by as much as they promised, why is Armenia listed among the countries with highest investment risks, why are the rates of unemployment and emigration growing? Go to the border and see what is going on there. Why should an Armenian change his name to Azeri one just to leave his country?" Zohrabyan said.
