Hraparak: Armenian authorities’ true demeanor toward the diaspora

August 16, 2012

YEREVAN. – “Our correspondent, who, together with [Armenia’s Diaspora Minister] Hranush Hakobyan, visited Hankavan [city’s] Hasmik and Tsaghkadzor [city’s] sport complex, was shocked by the contrast eye witnessed in these two places,” Hraparak daily writes and continues:

“In the first, there were Syrian-Armenian children, [who] survived the war [in Syria] and returned to the Motherland. In the second, [there were] the well-known [young] ‘Falcons,’ [who are] pampered by the authorities, [and are] always in elite camps.  

It would seem the state should first have cared for the Diaspora-Armenian children, many of whom are in Armenia for the first time. And this is a good opportunity for the Motherland to leave a good impression and be very hospitable before their eyes.    

Yet the object of our state’s special care is not them, but rather the elite ‘birds,’ who render very important services during elections. They need to live under special conditions, in expensive recreation homes, at the very least.  

That’s all right that the children who arrived from the diaspora will be placed in camps that are virtually non-renovated since [the] Soviet [era]. 

In reality, this is a demeanor toward the [Armenian] diaspora, whom our state sees as a milking cow and remembers when the time comes for the all-Armenian begging. And the [Diaspora Ministry’s] ‘Come Home’ Program] is nothing but an action thought up by Ms. Hranush and secures her employment.”
