Paper: Tsarukyan’s golden gun is a gift from Armenian President

PanARMENIAN.Net - Pistol belonging to Prosperous Armenia leader Gagik Tsarukyan, the most popular topic in the media over the past few days, appears to have interesting origin.

According to Zhoghovurd paper’s data, Tsarukyan got his golden gun from Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan as a gift. Tsarukyan’s spokesman Khachik Galstyan neither confirmed nor refuted the information to Zhoghovurd just saying: “You’ve had enough of that topic; you’d better report about something else now.”

During the election campaign in the town of Etchmiadzin, a gust revealed a gun stuck in the party leader's belt. Tsarukyan declared this was just a Vertu phone, while former Foreign Minister, now member of the Prosperous Armenia, Vartan Oskanian, claimed he believes this was really a pistol.

Despite party’s refusal to admit their leader carries weapon, Tsarukyan does have the right to do so by law, since he is also a member of Armenia’s Security Council, the paper says.
