Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process

A group of civil activists have filed an action in the Court of Appeal against the decisions to increase the gas and electric power tariffs in Armenia. This is the third claim of the activists, as the first two were rejected. Activists say they will create "their own public court" if their third claim is also rejected. Pinning no hopes with the court, the activists complain that the tariffs were increased neglecting the public opinion.
Gas and electric power tariffs increased in Armenia following the rise in the tariff of the Russian gas imported in Armenia. Thus, starting July 7, gas tariff increased from 132 to 156 AMD per cu m. Electric power tariff increased from 20 to 30 AMD.
