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”
Prosperous Armenia Party Spokesperson Tigran Urikhanyan has refuted Mass Media reports that the number of charitable trips Yerevan-Abovyan and Yerevan-Charentsavan will be gradually cut. Prosperous Armenian Party Leader Gagik Tsarukyan funds the buses serving the given routes.
Urikhanyan told ArmInfo that the charitable trips Yerevan-Abovyan and Yerevan-Charentsavan will continue on regular basis.
Buses belonging to Gagik Tsarukyan Charity Foundation serve the Abovyan-Yerevan route free of charge and disturb the work of the drivers of the Abovyan-Yerevan bus route No 259, who cannot fulfill the plan. According to the drivers, the problem is conditioned by the strained relations between Gagik Tsarukyan and Arthur Haroutyunyan, a.k.a. Palach (Hangman), the owner of the bus route. Sources close to the Party say the conflict was of political nature and was provoked by the Republican Party to exert pressure on Tsarukyan.
