Armenian National Assembly member Nikol Pashinyan has put into circulation a Bill On the near border communities of Armenia. The Bill looks to increase the social protection of the near border community residents, Pashinyan said in a Facebook post.
He said the Bill was drafted following numerous meetings with the residents of the above communities in July-August and is based on their needs. Thus, the Bill suggests a 50% discount on communal payments, exemption of the land and property taxes, provision of housing (within a month) to the residents whose houses were damaged by the enemy shots, as well as free of charge treatment and annual government assistance to the civilians wounded by the enemy shots.
A. Shiboyan asked the Arminfo Editorial to help her in searching for her missing rare breed dog "malamute".
