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”
Armenian government will revise options how to mellow for poor families consequences of possible raising of gas tariffs, Labor Minister, Artem Asatryan, said during today's discussion of the draft budget 2013 in the parliament when replying to the question of a representative of the Prosperous Armenia parliamentary faction, Mikael Melkumyan.
The minister recalled that a decision of the government has been functioning since 2011, according to which "ArmRusgasprom" takes from poor families a monthly fee 100 drams per one square meter of gas if a consumer uses less than 300 sq/m. He also added that they will continue the given programme. As for raising of gas tariff, this information is still on the level of rumors, he said.
