Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community
Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
The construction of a small hydro power plant near Getahovit village of Tavush region has caused protest of local residents. The main reason is activation of the landslide processes, erosion of land and the irrigation water problems.
As Getahovit village resident Artur Avakyan said at today's press-conference, that because of functioning of the "Khachakhpyur" power plant since 2007, the nearby territories have found themselves in the landslide. Despite obvious ecological risks and the protest of local residents, the power plant "Khachaghpyur-2" power plant construction has kicked off. Avakyan said that this sector was involved in the special nature protection area, which consists of 3 waterfalls.
To protect their interests, local residents are ready to apply to the government and the president with a demand to draw attention to the created situation.
As Hetq.am reported earlier, Ararat Kokobelyan, brother of the leader of the Free Democrats party, Khachatur Kokobelyan, is behind the hydro power plant "Khachakhbyur-2".
