In an interview with an Arminfo correspondent, the new owner of the
Armenian TV company Kentron (Centre), prominent businessman and MP of
parliament, Murad Guloyan, denied rumours that the true owner of the
controlling block of shares in the company is the chairman of the
Multi-group concern and oligarch, Gagik Tsarukyan.

Murad Guloyan stressed that he owns 100 per cent shares in the
company. “I have bought the shares in Kentron TV with my own money and
reports that I bought the company with Gagik Tsarukyan’s money do not
correspond to reality,” the MP said.

Murad Guloyan is confident that in the near future he will make huge
profit from the investment in the TV business. To recap, Murad Guloyan
bought the shares in Kentron TV from the head of the Ars-oil company,
businessman and MP of the Armenian National Assembly, Gurgen Arsenyan.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
