YEREVAN. – The key issue for most Armenian businessman MPs is multiplying their wealth and keeping it, Chorrord Inknishkhanutyun (CI) daily writes.      

“Specifically, businessman MPs Samvel Aleksanyan, Ruben Hayrapetyan, Karo Karapetyan (Karo of Juve), and Harutyun Gharagyozyan (Harut of Caramel) are not ‘inactive.’ According to CI’s information, these [parliamentary] mandate holders are attempting to establish [businesses] in [Russia’s] City of Sochi by putting their business ties to work       

According to the same news, Karo of Juve’s and Harut of Caramel’s business interests in this city are primarily connected with the export and production of alcoholic beverages. Aleksanyan and Hayrapetyan, on the other hand, wish to build a large sports complex either in Sochi or in Saki cities.    

CI tried to hear all sides. But their cell phones were silent. And [Football Federation of Armenia] FFA President Ruben Hayrapetyan said: ‘I do not give interviews over the phone.’

To add, Hayrapetyan was not in the city [i.e., Yerevan] and his cell [phone] was switched to roaming [service],” Chorrord Inknishkhanutyun writes.
