before launching any building activities,” told media Monday Director

that they need professional care, and pointed that due to this factor
there is a necessity to give them status of conservancy area.
Director if the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography Pavel
Avetisian, in his turn, said that there is no society without cultural
sphere, and that if nations don’t protect the environment it may
be said of “society’s non-existing.” Pavel Avetisian pointed that
memorials must be socialized and brought closer to people.

number of cultural signs and monuments, what is more – archeological.
There are not many places of such kind on the earth that is why they
are perceived as places of world value,” stressed Avetisian.
