Paper: govt. hasn’t provided funds to ship Flora Martirosyan’s body to Armenia

PanARMENIAN.Net - According to Zhoghovurd daily, Prosperous Armenia party leader Gagik Tsarukyan and other entrepreneurs donated major sums to the family of Flora Martirosyan to ship the late singer’s body from the U.S. to Armenia.

As was confirmed by Prosperous Armenia spokesperson, “Flora Martirosyan’s husband spoke about a need for funds with Tsarukyan, who, as a token of deep respect for the singer donated $20 thousand to her family.”
