Hraparak: Electricity Price Surge Result Of Blackmail?


08:40 * 02.07.14

Blackmail is claimed to be one of the reasons behind yesterday’s
decision to raise the prices of electric power.

Citing its sources close to the Government, the paper says that
the Electric Networks of Armenia had threatened layoffs in case the
scenario didn’t work.

But that’s not said to be the only cause, says the paper, adding that
corruptive manipulations too, contributed to the surge.

In return for the exported cheap energy produced by its Power Plant,
Armenia reportedly imported power at higher prices from abroad. “The
situation is deplorable in both the entire sector and the Ministry [of
Energy and Natural Resources] per se. If you go into the minister’s
office, you will be under the impression that it is the 1930s; no
repairs at all,” writes the paper.

“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
