Resident of Karvatchar (Nagorno-Karabakh Republic) Alexander Kananyan, who has declared a hunger strike, met with Minister of State of Artsakh Grigory Martirosyan, but won’t stop his hunger strike. This is what he reported on his Facebook page.
“Dear compatriots, today I had a meeting with Minister of State of Artsakh Grigory Martirosyan. The meeting was held in a constructive atmosphere of mutual respect. I express gratitude to the Minister of State for his efforts to reach an agreement, but I state that the “political leadership” of Artsakh doesn’t fully understand the gravity of the situation and the inevitability of unconditionally suspending construction of a small hydroelectric station in Karvatchar.
Thus, I will continue my hunger strike, and with a sense of responsibility, I warn that any encroachment to restart construction of the hydroelectric station will lead to sharp deterioration of the situation. I urge the “political leadership” of Artsakh to realize the incompatibility of construction of the hydroelectric station in Karvatchar with the imperative of national security of Armenia and be reasonable,” he stated.
