The residents of Vanevan in Gegharkunik consider the night of September 12 to 13, 2022 as one of the most difficult days to drive in the dark in the evening hours. On a day reminiscent of a war situation, the streets were deemed more bleak and dangerous to evacuate young children and women from the village. The lighting provied by phones or visible from houses were not enough to see ahead of feet and organize the necessary evacuation. The start of the current year's program was announced in Vanevan. The possible areas for the installation of electric poles have been identified.
"The presence of street lighting in remote villages is not only a component of a civilized life, but also a guarantee of safety. Some situations happen when people start to panic. Meanwhile, in case of illumination, no such thing will happen. People will understand where they are going and who is coming toward them from the other side," Vanevan administrative head Igor Harutyunyan noted.
