By losing Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), we Armenians lost 100 megawatts of electricity, 100 hectares of grazing fields, 315,000 hectares of grassy fields and more. This is what Vazgen Manukyan, candidate of the opposition Homeland Salvation Movement for Prime Minister of Armenia, said during a meeting with residents in Ararat Province where he was asked what he will do to improve the country’s economic situation after he becomes Prime Minister.

“Armenia’s GDP dropped by 7%, and it was due to not only the war, but also the coronavirus. The budget isn’t being performed, and social expenditures have increased significantly. I can take many steps to boost the economy, but the important thing is to invest funds in Armenia, and the funds can be collected from Diaspora Armenians, particularly the Armenians of Russia who said they can make big investments in Armenia, if Nikol Pashinyan resigns. There can also be funds collected from financial donors at low interest rates. However, it is also necessary to develop the economy. There are also several programs for agriculture that haven’t been implemented to this day,” Manukyan said, adding that he will talk more openly when the programs are presented.

“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
