Professor Richard G. Hovannisian visited Armenia on the threshold of the Armenian Genocide centennial. On April 21, the presentation of the Armenian version of “The Republic of Armenia, Vol. II: From Versailles to London, 1919-1920” by the prominent historian was held in the RA National Academy of Sciences. PanARMENIAN.Net talked to prof. Hovannisian on some issues.
A candidate in Armenia's presidential elections, Paruyr Hayrikyan, shot and wounded in an assassination attempt, feels good and is determined to continue the race. The question remains: Will the elections be delayed? As the candidate told PanARMENIAN.Net, he’ll either apply to the Constitutional Court with a request to delay the elections for 2 weeks, or try and collect his strength to continue with the campaign. “The poll day of February 18 is important to me for many reasons,” he said.
